Nice, normal pub. Good house Gin with Tonic. A bit limited choice in regards to draft pilsner beer. Only Peroni, which is a bit watery. Friendly personnel.

I really liked it. Went there for a quick morning bite and tried the eggs benedict, which I absolutely loved. Then I went there in the evening. Great pub with a large variety of craft beers.

We went for brunch, with the intent of getting a decent full English breakfast. A little side of bacon and avacado toast rounded out our meal. Not sure if it’s an English thing or just this specific restaurant but they didn’t have any hard brunch...More

Food and service were excellent. Great range of local and other brews. The bartender also makes a mean martini. We intend to return to enjoy the atmosphere and the food.

Tried the chicken and chorizo pie with a light beer: it was amazing! Next day tried fish and chips with a stronger lager: woah! Huge, tasty and delicious. Definitely will try more pies and ale there. The service is fine and the atmosphere was friendy.

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

Hi gerrycrean, yes we do serve Guinness Extra Cold and it is on draft. As TonyJ85 and 67brickie mentioned we serve Fullers beers as well, but we always have had Guinness as a draught option and never had anything else... More
