“Nice choice in Earl's Court/Kensington area”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The Blackbird is a family friendly pub convenient to the Earl's Court underground station. We found the pies to be quite good and the chips were excellent. The beer list is mostly (all?) Fullers brands, which is nice but limiting. The decor is dark and casual. The server was somewhat inattentive which put a bit of a damper on the meal.

“Great neighborhood pub”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Very nice spot to have dinner near our hotel in Earl's Court on our first night in London. The chicken pie was really good. Nice selection of beers and ales. Good service and decent atmosphere. Recommend.

“Stopped in for a pint”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I didn't eat, but I had a drink at the bar. The place was packed on a Sunday night, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves!

“Good Guiness”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Very good service, but food is average. Guiness is great as always. No more to write about this place
