Popped in whilst staying at a nearby hotel for a couple of nights. Friendly staff and regulars and great all round atmosphere. Didn't eat here but wouldn't hesitate to recommend by the look of the food that was coming out of the kitchen. Decent menu. Thanks for an enjoyable couple of pints and hope to see you again.

We visited late afternoon Monday before the Chelsea v Watford match. Great fish and chips, those who had burgers enjoyed those too although my friend who had the shepherd's pie found his portion to be a little on the small side. Good quality drinks too and only about a 20 minute walk to Stamford Bridge - we will be back... More

The Kings Head was very close to the Marriott in Kensington and we went for dinner. The service upstairs in the dining room was fantastic. We had the fish cakes and shepard's pie. And gin and tonic. Several of them. They were that good. The food was fantastic, too. There were different infusions for the g&t and we really enjoyed... More

We enjoyed our pub experience tremendously. Paul was terrific. We both sang a few show tunes from major musicals. The people at the pub liked our spontaneous performance. We enjoyed the delicious British breakfast and the appetizers as well.

This is a great local place to eat. I had family visiting from overseas yesterday and didn't have time to cook so needed a place to save the day!

Visited this pub multiple times during our stay. Nice atmosphere and I found it quieter than a lot of the other pubs in the area, but still full of friendly folks and staff. Had fish and chips here on our last day and really enjoyed.

Came here Friday night for dinner and drinks with some friends. I had visited this pub around two years ago before it was a Fullers pub and had one of the best drinks I've experienced (Affligem Blond) and was hopeful they would have it on tap still. Unfortunately, it was not there and instead had Leffe, it's ugly cousin! Excellent... More

I found this place on Trip Advisor due to quite specific location needs, meeting family for a Sunday lunch. It looked nice enough and prices seemed reasonable, so I booked via the website. The pub's decor is lovely and it seemed like it might have been recently decorated, not sure. It was in great condition, nice decor and no sticky... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
