During our stay in The Kensington Hotel we had dinner is this lovely restaurant. The food was very good; we had a nice soup with slices of fresh baked bread; the sea food grill; chicken fillet; and additional vegetables. All very fresh, tasty and of good quality. We highly enjoyed our dinner!

The tables are well placed so as not to give a crowded athmosphere. The menu is English country house with the emphasis on fresh produce. We both started with a salad of white asparagus with...

The service was very good, the food was very ordinary.... the restaurant was an afterthought ... we elected to eat in the bar, others were in the sitting room rather than eat in a a rather soulless "restaurant" which could have been so much better.

As for the starters, cesaer salad, superfood salad, they have a really good crab sandwich, amazing cocktails, and good... More

We had a few meals here whilst staying at this hotel and the ambiance is to die for, the food is greatest and as an american I always find British cuisine fascinating and here we sampled all great British cooking. the service is quick and waiters are also friendly and highly recommend Aubrey for a meal out.
