A group of us visited last week with family from overseas thinking this would be a great venue for a typical 'pub' experience but boy were we disappointed! The Sunday roast & Fish and chips were OK (Hawksmoor's is still the best) and the kids...More

Good food & friendly service. Visited a couple of times during my stay in Kensington, and Fullers beer always worthy of a diversion.

This place could more accurately be called a restaurant with a bar rather than just a pub. We had a very enjoyable evening here and a good meal. I also went and had lunch there one day while my son was doing some extra sightseeing....More

Group of 17 - server was PHENOMENAL and the food was delicious. Fish and chips (side of peas) - very good. Strawberry Elton mess and caramel toffee were wonderful. A little pricey but... high quality!

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

Hi there, thanks for your question, yes we do do a cauliflower & broccoli cheese on the Sunday Roasts. We recently made some changes to our menus and so that's probably why no one has mentioned it yet. Hope that helps & we... More

Good morning, we do have a ramp to use to get in to the pub, but I'm afraid the toilets are not wheelchair accessible. Please do let us know if you have any other questions.
