Has been repainted in the last couple of months apparently and upstairs is now a second bar. Football on one screen this lunchtime and, even though Chelsea were playing, it was not obtrusive. Doom Bar, Purity's UBU, Ilkley's Mary Jane and Windsor & Eton's Knights of the Garter were the 4 handpulls - the latter at £3.85 was a little cloudy but perfectly drinkable (although I could not describe it as the best pint I have ever had). Rather a long wait for food but, when it arrived, it proved very tasty. Overall, quite a decent pub.

Full marks for having a fully comprehensive and clearly priced drinks list available on all the tables for perusal by customers.

When will all other pubs take this up?

This is an excellent pub. The food was about the best I have found in any pub in London or the country for that matter. The service was brilliant and the beer in top class condition. Prices were a bit on the high side but it was well worth paying a little bit extra for such great all round quality.

Lovely old pub in a secluded corner of kensington, a great find. No ales on this afternoon though, which was disappointing, had to have a heineken instead, boooooo! If you find yourself being dragged around the shops on kensington high street, nip down here for your lunch (food not sampled but looked good)!

Very impressive modern incarnation of a pub. Foodie without losing the relaxed pub feel. Well kept pint of Harveys washed down a delicious ox cheek pie, which was good value for the quality.
