Wonderful lunch alfresco

We dined at Kensington's for lunch, which was included in our spa packages and the food, decor, and service was excellent. I highly recommend the burger and and of the salads. Avoid the lobster rolls. Cold and loaded with celery. Way too much celery. But my meal was excellent. My wife suffered... read more

Had a light lunch, really enjoyed the tuscan bean chili with truffles! The service is really friendly and the pub is cozy.

We have lunched and dinned many times at Kensington's and had pleasant meals, but this year Mother's Day special was a disaster. Oysters have a very potent ( foul) smelling, the shrimps were soggy, the lobster bisque had so much flour that stuck the the spoon, the halibut was overcooked etc. the only thing that I could eat was the...

My wife and I ate out at Kensington's while staying at the Norwich Inn and Spa recently and it was just ok. My wife had the chicken pot pie which she said had a serious lack of seasoning. I got the Fra Diablo which was cooked fine but had zero spice. What actually made me write this review was my... More

This restaurant used to be excellent. Not true now. Selection was limited, and not enough vegetables.

We ate at Kensingtons multiple times over a several day stay. The food was creative but not consistently fabulous. The main courses were interesting and well prepared. We also liked some of the soups and cheeses. I was glad to eat here several times while staying here, but I probably wouldn't go otherwise.
