Great place to have a few glasses of rare wine with some yummy nibbles. Wine is dispensed though machines so all you have to do is top up your wine card with credit and they leave you to it to taste as you please.

I pass this place almost daily but just never thought of going in. I guess the name put me off! Anyway I digress I did go today invited by a friend and I loved the place. Wooden tables and wooden high tables with wine fridges for sampling the various wines is what meets you in the first room where we... More

it's a great joy and a moment of happiness for us when we find a restaurant like Kensington Wine Rooms. A huge selection of wines from all around the world and a great food. One of the best steak I have ever had with a great sauce. Service is very friendly and nice. We have already been here twice in... More

Easy walk from Notting hill Gate station. Very cute and rustic. Food was simple, but perfectly prepared. Service was great. And then there is wine! A great concept. Either order from menu just like everywhere else or try their card club. Fill a card with funds (think top-up oyster) and then go to wine wall where you can drop your... More

I had a dinner a few weeks ago with friends and we had a very nice time. The staff was attentive and my food was really nice. I had the pork for main which was delicious and it was a very balanced plate without the unnecessary carbs but a tasty bed of greenery. I tried the chocolate budding with salted... More

It has been ages since I came here and Im pleased to say they still do the best Cote de Boeuf Ive ever tasted. My wife had the Lobster and she loved it. Liked the background Jazz but could hardly hear it which was a shame.

This is officially my wine spot in west London. Its been open for a good few years but I only made it in a couple of weeks ago for the first time. Ive since been back 3 times, completely hooked on the array of wines they have by the glass and the really easy, cosy atmosphere they have there. One... More

Four of us had dinner at Kensington Wine Rooms the other day. We had a fabulous time and were extremely well looked after by the friendly, attentive staff. The wine selection is fabulous and they have an incredible selection by the glass in glass-fronted dispensers. We had some delicious foie gras, grilled mackerel, asparagus for starters followed by rack of... More

Always reliable! Great grilled mackerel salad, with fresh horseradish, pickled beetroot and watercress. And my companion had an endive, pear and blue cheese salad, full of fresh herbs. As always the food hits the spot. As it was lunch we stuck to a glass of wine each a white Le Soula from the Roussillon and a gorgeous Knoll Riesling from... More
