Quality pub, just off Kensington High Street. Nicely laid out with attentive staff. Called in only for one pint, but the welcome was such that I stayed for five.

Lovely black frontage and lots of character inside. Space to sit or dine. Food was good but a little pricey. Probably a result of the area.

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
