We were staying nearby and met some friends here - mainly because we wanted somewhere with outdoor space on a not July day. The pub is on a quietish residential street with the beer garden out front. You know you're in London, but it's away...More

Had lunch here after arriving on our first day. It's an easy walk from the Marriott on the way to Kensington Place. We were not disappointed in the atmosphere or food. Great way to start our vacation.

We stumbled across this beauty on Friday night, absolutely buzzing, the bar staff were on fire, nice and contemporary inside but also felt comfortable, we only stayed for one drink (had tickets at Royal Albert Hall) could have easily stayed all night, great atmosphere.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque

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

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!
