Been vapping here for a year and know half the other locals vape. Ridiculous for them to ban it. Good food and drinks ok but cancelled reservation for 10 as they all want to vape. Better more welcoming places nearby that listen to locals. Food...More

Unassuming local gastropub of High Street Kensington. Nice atmosphere with very good food - would not go there for a food experience, but rather to have a meal with friends in a relaxing atmosphere.

I love this place! Well-cooked, tasty, unfussy food, very nicely presented. Everything we’ve ever eaten at the restaurant has been delicious. Very good, short wine list too. Very comfortable seating on roomy banquettes. Excellent service. What’s not to like?

I have been organising career mums meet-ups in Kensington for years and we’ve hit a sweet spot at The Abingdon. There’s a lovely couch area just at the entrance where a dozen or so of us meet up for a drink and a laugh on...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

The eating area can be sectioned off I believe and it is an ideal wedding venue. Regrettably the facilities are in a basement down stairs, Hope this helps.

I don't remember seeing a child's menu. That said, we were 4 adults with a late dinner reservation and our biggest concern was that it took almost an hour for wine to be served and then even more time for the martini's... More
