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...

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.

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

It was our last night in London and of our six week trip. The C&S was only a 5 minute walk from our apartment. We had checked the menu on line and it was recommended by the host of our apartment so we decided to try it. It was a pleasant surprise, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere was comfortable,...
