Description: Bumpkin restaurant is a new thing, a country-in-the-city organic eatery that���s opened its doors on the Old Brompton Road in London���s South Kensington. Bustling with an art-collecting, sports-jacket-wearing local crowd, Bumpkin is a warm and cosy restaurant that has been decorated with farmhouse-chic furniture and eclectically upholstered chairs to relax in while you watch the chefs create their magic in the open-plan kitchen. The classic British cuisine revolves around the availability of fresh market ingredients, so the menu at Bumpkin changes frequently with sumptuous daily special as well. Apart from olive oil, all the ingredients on Bumpkin���s menu are one hundred percent British. Signature dishes include a variety of organic pies, gourmet salads and grilled fish accompanied by an excellent selection of wines, ciders and real British ales. We love this local gem, and it's an ideal spot for post-shopping salads, Sunday roasts and Bloody Mary���s, and organic on-the-run snacks.

Had a great meal here, the highlight of which was a plate of grilled vegetables. Everything here is fresh, local, and delicious.

My chicken was undercooked but they took it back with apologies and cooked it further and gave me a glass of wine to make up for the mouthfull of raw-ish chicken i had eaten. Great service.

Stopped off at Bumpkins for dinner with my husband and infant as this was close to our hotel and I read some good reviews. Really nice looking restaurant and I liked that they use local ingredients for their dishes. We got the British Cow Pie and the Classic Fish & Chips. The food was decent, not bad but not great. Found the beef in the pie to be a bit dry though there was lots of meat in the pie which was good. The fish and chips was good, did really like the tartar sauce though. It was one large piece of fish that wasn't overly greasy. Also really liked the presentation of the fish & chips, the chips were in a mini deep fryer basket and then the fish on top of the chips. What I did not enjoy was the bad service. When we got there it was totally dead (we were there at about 4pm) except for two tables out on the patio. We got seated quickly enough but then sat there at least 15 minutes before anyone bothered to come take our order (we probably should have just left at this point but we were too lazy to try to find somewhere else to eat). There was not a single other customer in the restaurant itself! The waitress who sat us never came back (so maybe she was only reception?). There was one waitress who was going back and forth, seemingly bringing food to the tables outside but she never once acknowledged us. There were two other servers that were busy talking with each other and they walked here and there but also did not acknowledge us. Finally the waiter come by and I told him that we were ready to order and he was snotty and basically said something along the lines "yes, that's what I'm here for". Really? Won't be coming back.

Who says you can't get good food in London? This place was great fun and excellent food. The service was very good. Try the meat pies, but you can get some good vegies too.

This place used to be great, but first time back in about 9 months and it was really disappointing. Service surly and often borderline rude. Food was cold, a bit bland and just lacking the flair they used to perfect. Came away a little bit sad inside
