From the very first time I made contact with their Event Manager, Valentina, it was a dream. She was friendly, organised and I was able to lean on her experience of the venue to make the evening a real success.... More

Wonderful experience at the Town House for Sunday lunch with some friends last weekend! Delicious food on offer at surprisingly good value. The interior decor coupled with the views looking out on to South Kensington provide the perfect environment for a relaxed dining experience. Service was also warm and welcoming.

A lovely meal with excellent service. Town House is an elegant place to eat with a nice atmosphere and attentive staff. The chocolate fondant was the perfect end to the meal and is recommended

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
