Really good place to hang out with cool Brits and expats living in London. The food is good and it is open late for drinks.

Stopped here for one night frankly because there was nowhere else to go as I only booked the day before...what a find!! Spotlessly clean, lovely airy room with an abundance of towels, soaps, coffee pods to name but a few of the small, but noticeable details. The continental breakfast had warm bread, iced juice, very fresh pastries, coffee to order.... More

I would like to thank Luca and the rest of the staff for a lovely Saturday evening bite. I found the decor warm, inviting and cosy. The food was pretty decent and the service was exceptional. I shall be returning.

Thick dust in the bathroom and bedroom. The bed was extremely soft and the window didn't open. It all felt unclean. The breakfast we were aware was continental. We were presented... More

I rented an apartment for a few days just down the road from the Crown and Sceptre. My wife and I popped in for a drink before heading to Kensington. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We felt very relaxed and enjoyed a nice drink in the sun. It's a real pub that gets very vibrant after office hours.... More

Dropped in at the pub around the corner. Better than the pub grub one usually expects. Great vibe. Will definitely make this my local for dinner and drinks.

visited this establishment on two occasions, whilst working down london area, our digs were across the road, so dead handy, Food was well presented and tasty, i had fish and chips on the first visit and a cheeseburger on the second visit. No loud music banging your ear drums about, so conversation was not a problem, which makes a welcome... More

I was there with my wife to take lunch. It was nice but pretty expensive and nothing out of the ordinary. I will certainly not go there for a second time.

We stayed for 1 night to attend an event at Olympia. My son and I arrived in the Friday afternoon the manager greeted us very friendly. She showed us to our room. Room was clean and tidy with tea and coffee making facilities. We went out to Piccadilly Circus for the night when we came back the bar was busy... More
