Jumped in here tonight for some food and a drink. Food was fantastic and very tasty. The owners were lovely with great service throughout. Would thoroughly recommend for a great meal and ever better service. Sad that these covid measures are wreaking havoc with small...businesses like this. Poor.More

This is a beautiful pub. Although they were a bit zealous with the COVID restrictions, a bit too clinical.

My husband and I regularly pop into the blackbird when we are in London for work. We keep going back because of the very warm welcome we receive from all the staff It was our automatic choice for our first stay in London after lockdown.... The rooms are absolutely lovely. They are fitted out to a very high standard. We stayed in the jacques room at the rear. It was the best nights sleep I have had in ages !! The room was extremely quiet and the air con was really efficient and all the home comforts. Tea making facilities and a lovely nespresso coffee machine along with a very handy fridge. A lovely breakfast was included, all for a very good rate . Natalie ,Neil and all their staff are a credit to fullers!!. The service and food is fab and I have never seen such an efficient sanitising regime. As soon as someone leaves a table it is sanitised straight away. They are constantly wiping bannisters door handles and the bar. Track and trace is implemented on everybody that comes in. I felt very safe in this pub during the current situation. Thank you for a lovely stay guys and hope to see you very soon !!More

lovely pub with great staff. We had fish and chips, fish finger sandwich and a burger and all were brilliant. Great food and the staff were so good with our kids. Would highly recommend especially as it's social distancing and the pub had done a...cracking job. Very safe and clean.More

A pub/restaurant in a busy area near Earl's Court underground station. Goid sekection of drinks. Very busy in the evenings with diners filling the tables. So if you only want a drink it may be difficult to find a table.

Black bird is not only the Beatles song I prefer (!) but definitely my favorite pub in London. This year I found it renewed and I was afraid it was "fake" . Instead I found the usual authentic atmosphere, extremely kind, very welcoming staff. Excellent...beers and truly exceptional food. I especially recommend the meat pies selection. Fantastic music and a great atmosphere. Very nice vibe Contemporary, cool and traditional together Great !More

Wow what a lovely review! Thank you so much!

Reviewed April 1, 2020

It was breakfast time and although the menu had some combinations and some individual items, nothing caught my interest, so I asked the server if the kitchen would be able to assemble some items. The answer was an unqualified YES! And the result was exactly...what I was looking for. Their willingness to allow me to pick and choose without hassle and without a lot of extra charges is the sign of a food establishment that understands the relationship between the kitchen and the guest. And, as an added bonus, the food was delivered hot and perfect and precisely as ordered. Once this COVID19 nonsense is over and done with, I'd return in an instant.More

We visited one evening and the Pub was packed and all watching a game. We had to share a table with folk who were staying there and they said how good their room was. Our meal was excellent. Everything was fresh, hot and well presented.

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
