This used to be a fantastic pub with a fantastic menu. However, 2 or 3 years ago it had a refurbishment and lost quite a lot if it's character. The food standard has remained but the loud rock music piped in does not do the...More

Really nice pub. Very clean on the inside and friendly staff. Found a table easy enough. Lager average price for London. Really nice juicy burger, beautifully cooked. Made for a pleasant couple of hours and I would recommend.

Nice outdoor space (if a bit noisy from the road). Good for a glass of wine outside. Do not eat here under any circumstance. I paid £17 for the worst steak I've ever had - so overdone, horribly fatty and just generally a really cheap...More

Classic english tavern with OK pub food. Atmosphere is cool and staff just OK. We ordered the grilled cheese with garlic (just OK) and fish and chips- Enjoyed the experience!

We usually just have the drinks here. The food was never a big attraction compared to other pubs and restaurants in the area. In nice weather , sitting outside is a fun evening!

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

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!
