Very friendly pub, good service, nice servers. We really enjoyed the fish and chips, tasty fish and crispy batter. Place can get really busy, go early or make a reservation.

8 of us drank and dined here on a Thursday afternoon/evening. The food was great, well proportioned and reasonably priced. Gets a bit busy as the afternoon rolls on but highly recommended.

Hereford Arms is a local pub just a couple of blocks from the apartment. The ambiance was what we expected - a warm welcome from the hostess, dark furniture with dim lighting and background conversations from an almost full pub. Anya, our server, was very...More

Many pubs have either gone the fancy gastropub route, or a bland mix of burgers and fish and chips every day. The Hereford Arms managed to keep a traditional pub feel and provide a fantastic traditional British Sunday roast. This is on top of their...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

I would consider that the Sunday Roast would be served ALL DAY. Unless they run out. Wife and I dined for late lunch at 2.30pm and no problems getting served.
