Stayed nearby at the Holiday Inn High Street Kensington and it was a 3 minute walk to enjoy a nice, heated outdoor patio. The chicken wings, fried calamari were excellent. Good beer and spirits selection for a decent price.

It's a really nice pub. Lovely interior. It has a front garden which is not too big and on the main road so it might be too noisy. After a long time I met my cousin in this pub for a meal. She had a...More

Hi Viktorija - Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. We've passed on your comments to our chefs about the pie, but are delighted your friend loved the burger. We hope we see you again for more tequila! (and lemon!)

You know you're going to pay London prices when you see the interior but then you were wandering around Kensington dear so what did you expect? It's laid back but friendly vibe, high ceilings, somewhat unusual menu ingredients and very well kept beer make it...More

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

Description
South Kensington's cosiest pub. Just a stones throw from the boutique-lined streets of South Kensington, The Devonshire Arms has rustic character and vintage style in equal measure. Step inside to discover an unsurpassable range of speciality drinks, all served with a dash of idiosyncratic charm and an eclectically furnished interior that exudes a subtle air of stately-home grandeur, an apt setting for sipping on a crisp New Zealand Pinot G or treating yourself to one of our home-cooked Sunday roasts. The pub garden has ample tables that catch the sun with heating and jumbo umbrellas for when the British weather catches you off guard!
