An excellent menu with great ingredients. A proper English breakfast with lots of options available. Staff could be friendlier.

My family and I stopped by for lunch on our first day in London. we were warmly greeted by the manager. We all loved our food and the restaurant is warm and cozy inside. A nice place to grab a meal in Kensington

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
