The Blackbird is about as authentic of an English Pub as you will find. The "traditional" English breakfast is enough to choke a horse, for 10 pounds, a fair price for the food you can get, to share. It included two eggs, two large pieces...More

I didn't like the look of the "breakfast room:" in our hotel, so we opted for breakfast here. Much better and a wiser choice. We had a toasted breakfast sandwich (bacon & a fried egg) and it was FAB! Service was quick and friendly. we...More

Went here for lunch and we had great food. A bit expensive for lunch but what the h..k?! Someone takes orders on the table instead of ordering ar the bar and giving a table number.

Food was good, our waiter was quite grumpy. Pies were good. Fish and chips great. Roast was a very large serving

A stone's throw from our hotel, we loved the Blackbird. This was our first meal in London and it was by far the best. Beer and pies are their specialty and we indulged. Our son got a cheeseburger which was really good. The atmosphere was...More

Ate an excellent breakfast here one early morning. I ordered the egg benedict and my friend ordered the english breakfast. Serving was generous and the food was delicious. Service was also prompt and good. Worth a try!

A local pub with great food, extremely friendly service and brownies that are to die for. You haven't had brownies until you've had them here. Keep it up guys !

The food looked very good. The place was packed out (Sunday night). The beer was flat and very overpriced. Reasonable selection of beers available.

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

Well that all depends on how many, time of day for eats, what you are going there for etc etc. Drinks are London prices, £5 for a pint, £8 for a glass of wine. As to food, I'd suggest you Google for the menu as there are so... More
