Cumberland Stores

Picture source: Paul McCarthy


The Cumberland Stores was situated at 1 Kingly St W1, on the corner of Kingly and Beak St. This pub was run by Jack Brady and his wife Gladys. In the sixties it was frequented by the new beautiful people from nearby Carnaby St and in the seventies by the advertising community. Mick Jagger famously dropped in for a light ale after a news conference following his arrest in 1967 for cannabis use. The pub closed in 1990 and is now the Myung Ga Korean Restaurant.
