To start this review, I'd like to say that my boyfriend and I just walked out of Janet's Bar voluntarily without being asked to leave or refused service (as to say otherwise seems to be managment's response to all negative reviews)! We stopped in for a drink and due to there being no other bars in view, we entered Janet's despite the bizarre display of laminated A4 sheets of reviews etc attached to the front railings. The inside was quirky and furnishings cute, so we sat down and made our first mistake - picking up the laminated A4 menus. They were all sticky and my boyfriend was left with a disturbing ambiguous food residue on his hand :( Gross! While my bf went to the bar, I took in the strange, megalomaniac decorationsf featuring articles about Janet...photos of Janet...pictures of Janet...Janet everywhere! My boyfriend came back after a while saying we should go as bottled beer was £5.50 and single+mixer was £7.50!! This would have been OK for an upper-class establishment but I think this is Kensingtonians having fun 'japes' by roughing it in their surroundings while being happy to be ripped off by their drink bill. The girl behind the bar was lovely but I would avoid this place like the plague, which indeed I imagine you may catch if you entered the kitchen, judging by the state of the menus. Janet, ease up on the narcissism-inspired decor!
