While wandering around the side steets of Kensington High St we came upon the Abingdon. We sat at the bar and ordered wine and lager. This is more of a bar and restaurant rather than a pub. Bar staff were very attentive and as the evening got really busy they coped fantastically and still had time for a smile. Ordered... More

For our last night in London my husband and I went with a local friend to The Abingdon in the Kensington area of town, just a couple of blocks below Kensington High Street. We thought the establishment was a pub but once inside we saw it was also was an inviting and warm restaurant space. We had sea bass, pork... More

Always a great place to have a nice meal and end the long week. It feels like my neighborhood restaurant across the pond.

Our party thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Abingdon. I arranged for our table via e-mail prior to leaving for London and even though the restaurant would be hopping on Saturday night, Ben (who we met during our visit) worked with me to fit us in. (Our agreement included our "possibly" having to move to the cozy bar after two hours... More

Would recommend the steak followed by the sticky toffee pudding afterwards They serve some nice beers here also but the London Pilsner is particularly refreshing. Staff are nice,friendly and very efficient. Would highly recommend a... More

Our food was great and service excellent. We loved the neighborly factor of the restaurant. Mussels were great, and eggplant perfect!

Boy this Gastropub couldn't be more different from how it was when I used to live around the corner in the mid 80s, and in a really good way. It's gone from a standard post Victorian pub to a bar/pub/restaurant providing excellent fresh food in lovely surroundings. Not overly cheap, but well worth a visit.

This is fun pub to stop in for happy hour. Food is good, though not traditional pub food. Order at the bar and they will bring your food out to you. Servers were friendly and helpful!

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
