“A great lunch in Kensington”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

Had great meal at the Hereford Arms and can recommend it if you are staying in one of the many hotels that surround it. It is good pub grub and great value. It can become crowded on warm days and late in the afternoon. That aside, friendly and worth a go.

“Fun, fun, fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We were in Kennsington for two nights and our hotel recommended Hereford Arms. We went in for a pint and had a wonderful time. Met some nice people to sit and talk with. The place was packed but vibrant. In fact, it was so good, we went back the following night for pub grub. Excellent food! And all of the standards an American was expecting - fish & chips, cottage pie, and bangers & mash. Good times!

“Lovely pub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Beautiful pub in South Kensigton! Good pub food, friendly service, good prices especially for London standards. Great hamburger, fish and chips and other traditional British dishes. Children welcome and my daughter loved both the food and the idea of being in a real pub. The bar can be crowded as it should be but the dining area is on the side and unlike other pubs you don't get people leaning on your table while you eat. They also have outdoor seating for warm nights. It is also possible to eat in the bar area but there is no table service area. We truly enjoyed it!
