High quality food, good and friendly service. Good dining room - spacious and calm. The special was a game pie which was excellent. Extensive wine list - with good value at the cheaper end. Attentive and discrete service.

Went for a drink and dessert to the Kensington wine bar after spending a terrible evening at the Churchill arms next door. Very friendly staff. Certainly to recommend.

We found this place after an internet trawl and me and a mate went there for dinner on my last night in London. It was a short walk from the tube station and it was absolutely fantastic!! After eating at Michelin starred restaurants during my London stay I was happy to find food just as good with friendly service an... More

During a trip to London this weekend, I ended up having a free night to myself and decided to try out the Kensington Wine Rooms. I easily made a reservation for one about 4 hours earlier in the day. When I arrived, I had a very friendly greeting from the bar. I was offered a seat and some water and... More

We were happy to have the opportunity to find a great choice of second or third wines of prestigious Bordeaux's castles, very expensive if you are limited to the main wine. The quality of food was very good and the service fine. Not recommended for romantic dinner, the dining room is loud but the atmosphere is very pleasant. Don't miss... More

We went here lured by the extensive wine list by the glass, however we were also very impressed with the service and the food. Had the soft shell crab starter and the venison Carpaccio which were both very well cooked- only criticism is that the portions of the starters were pretty small. For mains we both had Iberico pork which... More

Having already visited the Fulham wine rooms we were familiar with the concept of the enomatic tasting system. This time we were here as a party of 4 for dinner. After sampling a few wines we were then able to choose various bottles to accompany dinner. The calamari entree was beautifully cooked, fresh and simple. The soft shell crab was... More

Great concept, good wines, cool atmosphere and good food. Sums it up. Had a business event there, and the concept of the credits for wines works really well for such an event. A bit tiny, we were about 20 people, and with the regular guests, it was a bit crowded.

Best known as a wine bar, and there is a good selection of wines by glass and bottle. Not cheap but that's London for you. There's also a restaurant in the back section, and this can be a good experience. Monday nights they also have a really good offer on wine to go with your meal...bottles are take-away prices basically.... More

Popped in here for a pre-dinner drink to celebrate the engagement of a close friend as well as to catch up on the last 5 months of the year whilst I was out gallivanting around the world. Staff were friendly and helpful in choosing bubbles. The atmosphere was just right for celebration as well as background ambience being at the... More
