This pub was completely renovated since our 2017 visit. I feel it lost much of the pub charm it had. The new version will ultimately have a restaurant, and a 9 room hotel. The bar area has been updated and has booths, table, and bar...More

We missed this the first couple of nights we were in the area as it was hidden behind some construction scaffolding. The award winning meat pies are worth a try but we went back because of the dessert. Over two nights between us we had...More

Popped in here for a (veggie) full English and was taken by how tasty it was. The poached eggs were perfectly cooked, and spinach was a surprising but tasty addition to the plate. The staff were very friendly and the pub had a really nice...More

Went to have a pint, as I was waiting take away food. Nice staff, and people. Was a bit crowded. Horrible singer was ruining my pint, as it sounded like someone's being tortured right there at the pub corner.

The pub was in close proximity to the Mombray Court Hotel! Food was great at an affordable price! Hamburgers highly recommended, am excellent example of a British pub!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Well that all depends on how many, time of day for eats, what you are going there for etc etc. Drinks are London prices, £5 for a pint, £8 for a glass of wine. As to food, I'd suggest you Google for the menu as there are so... More

Hi gerrycrean, yes we do serve Guinness Extra Cold and it is on draft. As TonyJ85 and 67brickie mentioned we serve Fullers beers as well, but we always have had Guinness as a draught option and never had anything else... More
