Always a very busy pub, but they still maintain a cheery efficient service at the bar, and the food is really good standard of traditional English pub grub. Pies are clearly a speciality

Good, nice & fun pub. Regular food for such pub, good selection of beers. The burger was good but a little bit dry for my taste, but the Sausage & mash was exceptional. The service was excellent & fun.

Had TWO nice meals at The Blackbird - excellent service, great food and a very pleasant atmosphere. Pies are super, fish and chips terrific and a great selection of beers/cider/wine. Liked it so much we went back for dinner - you'll like it too !

Good food, very friendly staff providing wonderful service. Visited with my wife and sister, all had different meals which were all well prepared and hot. Appetizers and soups differed by day which adds variety. Offered a sampler option of the local ales and beers, great...More

An interesting combination of flavors. Not terrible but can't call it delicious either. Maybe because it was so new, my palate didn't quite know what to make of it. But, I'm alive to write about it so it's already a plus in my book.

I walked up and read the menu by the door. They had fish chips on the menu. I ordered the fish and chips. It was a big piece of fish and good portion of fries. This probably the best fish and chips I ever ate....More

We'd called in for a quick drink after the football and ended up staying to watch the rugby world cup final. There was a good atmosphere. Plenty of staff and friendly too. Good range of Fullers beers.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Well that all depends on how many, time of day for eats, what you are going there for etc etc. Drinks are London prices, £5 for a pint, £8 for a glass of wine. As to food, I'd suggest you Google for the menu as there are so... More

Hi gerrycrean, yes we do serve Guinness Extra Cold and it is on draft. As TonyJ85 and 67brickie mentioned we serve Fullers beers as well, but we always have had Guinness as a draught option and never had anything else... More
