I visited London on business and this place was local to my hotel and I neded food quickly. I fact it was quite a find..relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff and good food. It wasn't spectacular but it had a quiet confidence abot it. Had a most enjoyable meal with a lovely G&T and, although it was reasonably pricey it was probably god value for what received. Would recomend

Our daughter treated my husband and I to an afternoon tea here. My husband isn’t fond of too much sweet food so we found it perfect here as you could choose 2 items from each of the four sections and there were savoury options in three of them. The food was lovely and the staff were very nice.

In the heart of Kensington this place boasts a large bar & dining room - although run & next to the Radisson it does not feel like a hotel restaurant.

The service is good, quick and the food nice & good value - it's very standard but well presented fayre - you do get the feeling that the food is all pretty prepared as it comes out quick. However we had the Prawn cocktail which tasted great and the presentation was nice - served on a paddle. For mains we had the shepherd's pie, which was nice & filling. It's not fine dining, but at £20 per head it's a nice place to eat & at the bar you can order cocktails & beers before you dine. We would go back but we have lots of other places to eat at in London first though which we have not tried before.

Booked this restaurant for lunch with friends. Was a little apprehensive due to mixed reviews.

Service was superb and one of the best burgers I have had. Empty plates so no complaints...!

Only comment would be to make sure you ask for tap water (if you are happy with this option) as not offered and we ended up with bottled water in our bill.
