Wandering around in Kensington we stumbled upon this Pub and were really happy as we were cold and hungry. The food and drinks were excellent and served hot and cold respectively which can be unusual to find in a busy pub. The decor is comfy...More

This pub has definitely had a makeover. Booked a table for 6, and got a fabulous spot outside in their garden patio. Food was fantastic (Sunday lunch with all the trimmings) and really great service. Will go back and suggest folks head there too

I love this pub. I hate the service! I come here often as it's a really gorgeous pub but I must say that the service I encountered today was appalling. Your lady serving today (blonde, middle aged and Eastern European) is not fit for any...More

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
