A very good evening meal. The staff were very attentive and the food was freshly cooked. Don't let the noisy atmosphere in the bar put you off. The restaurant is quite despite being next to the bar.

Useless staff. Utterly useless, rude, staff. How can a bar run out of the most basic drinks? This appears to be a constant in the way this pub is run within the Youngs estate. Not my first time in complaining about this pub but the...More

Traditional English pub, cosy & comfy but unfortunately the food was very average. Good for a drink but find somewhere else for dinner!

Great place. The food was very good and to highlight the great range of beers. And also note that the waiter who checked us in was very friendly and helpful (Jose who was Spanish).

Part of the Hidden City, Enchanted mirror experience.. Couldn't have been more impressed. The pub was friendly, open and so lovely. So grateful for a wonderful day and the best experience. Beautiful place, thank you!!!

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
