The Colville

Picture source: Chris Amies

The Colville was situated at 72 King's Road. This pub is now used as a boutique.
The pub closed in 1969. Now a Diesel boutique, it was for many years a boutique called Lord John. I worked there for about 18 months in 1972-73.
Dr. Robert Grant
The Colville Arms was my first port of call after exiting Sloane Square and starting a pub crawl down the Kings Road. It was a busy pub with a hot display cabinet which contained suasages, baked beans, and a variety of snack items with which to fortify ourselves for a hard night’s drinking. It must have taken me a few visits before I realised it was a gay pub, but it was a pleasant enough start to the evening.
