Popped in here to catch a couple of beers and watch England v Croatia. Plenty of good real ales, all brewed locally and excellent Nachos. Friendly, efficient staff and chatty clientele. Very enjoyable (except the footie result).

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
