Aragon House is a Grade II listed public house at 247 New King's Road, Fulham, London.[1]

It was built in 1805-06, but the architect is not known.[1]

Aragon House gets its name from having been the site of a dower house belonging to Queen Catherine of Aragon, the first of Henry VIII's six wives.[2]

Aragon House and Gosford Lodge were built on the site of a villa that the author Samuel Richardson lived in from 1756 until his death in 1761.[3]
