The interior is cozy and looks like a high-class pub. However this also means that the staff acted a bit pretentious. Food is good, but not of fine-dining calibre. Prices are a bit higher than of a normal pub. However, for example for a beef burger, one pays £15.00. But for bacon and cheese, an additional £3.00 is added, without... More

Was able to make reservations on Open Table. When we arrived, we were told immediately that we had only a certain time available to us at our table. We were sort of surprised. Maybe it is because it was the holiday season, but it didn't set the tone for our meal. Service was OK. The food was average, we had... More

Four of us are in London for the New Year and we found this restaurant. On looking a the menu, which was impressive, I was thinking that the portions might be a bit on the small side.....like they seem to be in "fine dining" places and tv competitions. I could not have been more wrong.....my starter of soup was in... More

Not the type to leave a review, but we had an incredible experience from the great food to the amazing vibes we truly will be back many of times. Also, be sure to ask for Nicola, one of the best services we've received in our first 6 weeks of living in London

I visited Bumpkin on a quiet day, and I had the best service I have had in ages. Carlos' cocktails are truly exquisite and Kamil's customer engagement skills made for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend them. I cannot wait to come back soon!

I went to bumpkin with a group of friends tonight with high hopes but was disappointed. We got a booking on the day which was great. When we arrived we were amongst an awkward negative exchange between one waiter to another telling each other off. When seated by the hostess everything seemed fine. However our waiter seemed more interested in... More

We booked for 11, arrived at 11:02 and were greeted with the breakfast menu, which it said was served from 10-12 on a Sunday. It advertised three "morning aperitifs", so we ordered a bloody Mary and a glass of Prosecco. Oh no. They are only available after 12pm, said the waitress. But they're advertised on this menu, I said, which... More

We were a party of 30 having an evening meeting with dinner at Bumpkin in their upstairs room. Our Bumpkin hosts were Nikki and Edu who were fabulous - nothing was too much trouble. The food was great, service was prompt when we wanted prompt and slower when we needed it to be slower. All in all a very stress... More

Description
Bumpkin restaurant is a new thing, a country-in-the-city organic eatery that���s opened its doors on the Old Brompton Road in London���s South Kensington. Bustling with an art-collecting, sports-jacket-wearing local crowd, Bumpkin is a warm and cosy restaurant that has been decorated with farmhouse-chic furniture and eclectically upholstered chairs to relax in while you watch the chefs create their magic in the open-plan kitchen. The classic British cuisine revolves around the availability of fresh market ingredients, so the menu at Bumpkin changes frequently with sumptuous daily special as well. Apart from olive oil, all the ingredients on Bumpkin���s menu are one hundred percent British. Signature dishes include a variety of organic pies, gourmet salads and grilled fish accompanied by an excellent selection of wines, ciders and real British ales. We love this local gem, and it's an ideal spot for post-shopping salads, Sunday roasts and Bloody Mary���s, and organic on-the-run snacks.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
