Pint of frontier and chorizo burger advertised on the Scarsdale website for £13.95. The burger wasn’t on the menu at the pub and management refused to honour the deal alongside a burger they did have on the menu, blaming Fullers head office. Just very unhelpful...More

If you have fond memories of the food at the Scarsdale, think again. We haven’t been for a couple of years and while I can’t claim the food is appalling — I’ll reserve that term for the dining room service — it’s a far cry...More

This is a nice tavern that feels more like a restaurant. Prices were very affordable which was nice in an area like Kensington. This is a place that locals go to and is not a tourist spot. The Steak and Ale pie was absolutely fantastic!...More
