We were looking for something simple after a long day of touristing London. The pub was warm and there were a fair amount of people around. It took us a while to figure out that we had to order at the bar for table delivery. Overall a decent pub experience with ok food, beer, and figuring out the process.

Went with a group of friends for Christmas lunch. First the pro's Claire was a really nice waitress. Now the con's; We booked our meals in advance but what we got wasn't as promised. Firstly the cold water on the tables was warm water in hot craves that had probably just come out of the dishwasher. The goats cheese starter... More

Foods great if you want non wankery honest pub food. Highly recommend the... More

Although not haute cuisine, a fair-priced pub with rather delicious home-made pies. We were pretty desperate and hungry and found this pub around the corner from our hotel. A life saver!

We fell across this pub, it was around the corner form the Copthorne Tara Hotel. It was certainly cheaper than other London pubs and the atmosphere was good

Stumbled into here one night in London and what a result!! We'd already seen the previous reviews and knew it looked canny but we'd decided to go elsewhere. Anyway on walking out of our hotel (Tara Copthorne) 5 mins down road it started raining and we just happened to be passing it so decided to give it a go. Wow!... More

Popped in here for a post theatre drink. Friendly staff and good selection of beers. Decor and lighting not quite hitting the mark - needs to be softened a little, but otherwise, nice place. Shame it closed immediately after we ordered our drinks (11pm on a Saturday).

Visiting London with family. Refused to serve my mother who has food allergies. Ridiculous situation, my mother has visited Japan and still managed to eat out!!!

I always visit here when am staying at LAK apartments, the food and service are just brilliant. The staff always make me feel welcome and the prices are perfect for the awesome menu they serve. I miss it when am home in Glasgow.

Devonshire Arms S, General Manager at The Devonshire Arms, responded to this review

Good afternoon Janey! What a lovely review, thank you. If we could duplicate the pub for you in Glasgow, we would! Perhaps you could take a visit to The Curlers Rest when you miss us? We've heard they're great too. Glad to hear you love our new menu and we look forward to the next time you visit. Kind regards,... More

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!

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.
