The Blue Stoops is a pub in Kensington masterminded by Jamie Allsopp, who revived his family’s heritage brewing brand in 2021 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. This venture is the latest part of the brand’s almost 300-year history which includes the invention of the IPA by Jamie’s family seven generations ago. The family is also working alongside Charlie McVeigh who founded The Draft House group and is sure to provide great guidance on this project. 

The name of the pub is taken from one of the same name in the brewery’s town of origin Burton-on-Trent in the Midlands. The drinks offering here focuses on cask ales and the family’s ‘lost beers’ which Jamie has found and revived over the last few years. The family hopes that these beers will regain their prestige and will soon be served in public houses up and down the country. These beers are very drinkable so will take their place on the taps alongside ever-popular pale ales, IPAs and bitters. 

The food menu at The Blue Stoops will be overseen by chef Lorcan Spiteri whose resume includes Quo Vadis, The Pontoon at Studio Kitchen which he ran with his brother and Caravel;his canalboat restaurant serving an eclectic and seasonal menu. The food at The Blue Stoop will take center stage serving up traditional British pub classics. Expect simple seasonal dishes with elevated and contemporary twists. 

Not only is this pub a great place for a drink and some proper food but it marks an important chapter in British brewing history. This makes it a special place to enjoy every occasion from a leisurely evening pint to big family celebrations.
