Excellent food. Would definitely go there again when in the area. Then spent an hour watching the world go by from one of the... More

I ate here with a large group after LFCC on Sunday evening, so it wasn't a normal service experience by any stretch. I'm definitely considering the circumstances in this review. When we arrived, there was no table large enough to fit our group, understandable on such a busy weekend, so we had to wait and rearrange a little before getting... More

We have enjoyed a couple of previous visits and, when entertaining a friend after attending an exhibition at Olympia, we chose the Crown & Sceptre. The decor was the same but the menu was much smaller with a limited choice. I chose the Chef's Pie but, sadly, it wasn't available. I finished up with 3 Sausages & Mash. My friends... More

We picked this place due to it's location. This proved to be it's best and it's worst feature. Great in that it was but a few minutes walk to Olympia where we attended the France Show and worst because we were unfortunate to be in a room overlooking the street (although the secondary double glazing did muffle most of the...

Good pub, nice staff, good music. Though not on the many was for vegetarians. I do recommend the vegetarian curry!

I popped in with my wife, staff were nice and friendly. You can sit outside, weather permitting. The range of drinks is pretty good. If you're in the area and fancy a drink, it's perfect.

Met with friends for dinner. Food is excellent and service was also great. The cod in prosciutto was fantastic.

The best Sunday roast I have ever had in London. It was superb, the absolute best beef, including roast potatoes. I cannot lie, it was the best. It really was . You cannot miss this place ++++

We were staying at apartments down the Holland Road so this was our closest local. We had drinks and also food on two occasions, I had a nice burger and colleague had fish and chips - both were good. This is a busy pub with outside seating seating and lots of people taking advantage of it. Drinks are normal inflated... More

We found this Gastro Pub easily just off the Kensington High street. This is a local pub supported by locals. The room was basic but clean and had coffee / tea making facility. No safe was in the room but there was TV and it was fairly quiet. It must be remembered that this is a room over a working... More
