This is one of our locals and we just love it! Always fantastic service! Always buzzy! And, always super food! We had a vegan burger and chips and fish and chips. After this, we shared a vegan chocolate ice-cream. Delicious. The chips were crispy and...tasty. I think you can judge a place overall by its chips. My helpful hint is be sure to book a table and this place is always flowing with people. Around GBP 52 with a couple of glasses of Rose. Highly recommended.More

Two of us had dinner - neither is veggie/vegan but we both had the same vegan (plant based, on their menu) options for starter and mains. Both were absolutely delicious. Nice glass of wine, good value, nice service from our waitresses, clean loos. Nothing at...all to grumble about. I thanked them on the way out for getting things looking back to normal. They are making the effort with Covid prep, but without making a big song and dance about it. Well done.More

Called in for a quick pint with a colleague while down in London on business in January 2020. Seemed a very nice pub, clean and tidy, and with a good welcome on arrival from the bar maid. Although it was a Friday early evening and...starting to get busy we still managed to get a table. The pub had a good vibe to it, and the beer tasted good. Although we didn’t have food, the menu looked inviting. Its proximity to the Gloucester Road tube station and local hotels was also ideal. Would recommend, and would call in again if passing through.More

A charming pub in Kensington, near Gloucester Rd tube station. Good fare and a nice choice of beer on tap. The kitchen was also aware of allergies, very special for a pub! Sunday night was roast night and my partner's lamb shoulder was exceptional! I...had chicken schnitzel which was quite dry and the arugula salad was near impossible to eat causing me to wonder if chefs ever eat what they prepare! The leaves were long and hard to get into the mouth!!! Dessert was great: chocolate brownie oozed Valrhona and the toffee cheesecake complete with salted caramel ice cream was a perfect end to a pleasant meal. Just two blocks south of the Gloucester Rd. station....or the 49 bus stop is nearby.More

We were staying in this area and stumbled upon this pub it was quite busy and had a great atmosphere. Our group had fish and chips and the burgers, which were all very good. The food arrived quickly (ordered at the bar and delivered to...our table) we stayed and had some pints. The staff was excellent and extremely helpful. Lovely little Pub with great food.More

Tina wanted to find authentic real deal legit fish and chips in a non-commercialized environment. So we started googling and reading reviews and found this place! We called at six and made a reservation for 730 and the way the girl sounded on the phone,...we weren’t even sure if she actually kept the reservation. We literally chuckled about it. When we got there the place was packed and we went to the front desk and the young gentleman there asked if we had a reservation and we replied that we did at 7:30. He confirmed our name and offered us a space at the bar until they got our table ready! It was only a matter of a half a beer until we were seated!! The crew there was very friendly and accommodating and the customer service was totally five star! The The only thing better than the customer service was the food!!! I definitely recommend the HereFord Arms for a great traditional English neighborhood pub experience and wonderful food!More

Apologies we didn't see this, yes we did! We show the big stuff, World Cups, Olympics (in our time zone!) & the 6 Nations, Euros etc. We don't have Sky or BT for regular sport though.

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.
