My office is nearby and so we often have after work drinks in the Hereford. We decided to go for a team Christmas meal and wish we had gone somewhere else. I ordered rillette of duck, roast turkey with the trimmings and a salted caramel and chocolate tart. The service was terrible, the food very poor: The duck was covered... More

Very welcoming, friendly London pub with great cask beers, decent food, great atmosphere and helpful staff. It's a reasonable size inside with a varied selection of sitting/eating areas (ie tables, bar areas and more relaxing soft furnishings etc). I often stay in that part of town and for a relaxing meal with a pint this is fast becoming my 'go... More

I have traveled in and around London many times, but if I'm there in a Sunday it's to the Hereford Arns I go. The Roasts are amazingly tasty and a greT value in an expensive city! This place has a locals atmosphere even in the heart of Kensington!! A great selection of ales as well. I've never been

Very nice setting for a lazy weekend afternoon. Just a ten min walk from Natural History Museum. The bar staff were friendly, the food was a pretty good standard (the usual dishes), and there were lots of tasty Fuller's Brewery beers behind the bar. Warm and welcoming.

I don't usually give 5 stars, but had to do so for the Hereford Arms. This pub has a great atmosphere that is welcoming, not too loud and not too quiet, friendly staff, and really tasty bar food. We arrived late (almost 9:00) on a Sunday night after a long day of sightseeing and the person who greeted us (maybe... More

I enjoyed a delicious and substantial plate of fish and chips with mushy peas. All washed down with a pint of the black stuff. This place has a great atmosphere with friendly helpful staff.

Average food - fish and chips are pretty standard here. Nothing special (except watch for bones!) The beer selection is a bit better than many pubs in the area, which makes it a good place to stop for a beer.
