Location and contact

The Troubadour, est. 1954, with ceilings and walls strewn with the instrumental heirlooms of a bygone bohemia, this 50s cafe screams throw-back and is now celebrating 65 years entertaining London's finest locals and lovely travelers alike with our blend of a homey garden, outstanding restaurant, music venue with a new cutting edge sound system. With an easy smoothness, this live music haven of yesterday and today is the cornerstone of Old Brompton Road, which has refreshingly resisted the modern humdrum of high street homogeny. Comfort & conviviality ooze as you sup French and British cuisine, enjoy nightly 2 for one cocktails, nurse a golden hot chocolate or bury your face in an breakfast omelette

I came here twice and both times the staff (who were gay) were prejudiced and cruel to someone who was lgbtq, one person a customer and the other a singer! I mean that is just hypocritical and disgusting and I thought initially it was such...More

We went for the free jazz at 8pm and had some cocktails and wine before it started. Service was friendly and the pub itself has a very laid back, cosy atmosphere. Wine by the bottle reasonably priced, and they have a 2-for-1 cocktail deal until...More

The best crumble ever but needs more ice cream, the ratio of fruit to crumble could also use adjusting. Maybe just crumble no fruit
