Beautiful pub in a quiet spot just a short walk from the busy Earls Court Road Tube. We normally go for the sunday roasts as there is always a nice atmosphere with a log fire and friendly staff - although it can get busy downstairs....More

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
