Popped in for a couple of pints and watch a bit of sport. Beer is pricey but probably average for the area. Got served quickly and it was friendly enough. Can’t say it’s a great place but ok for a pint or 2.

Frankly not a bad pub for a hotel. Went to watch the football and found that the quality of the screens leaves a lot to be desired. Good selection of beers and wines and prices good for the area.

You might not expect to find a great pub/restaurant in a hotel but this one really is! Food was great - we had fish and chips, cheese bread, pasta and beef pie. All the food was fabulous.

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
