PJ's Grill

There's a polo theme at this South Kensington bar and grill, with all manner of equine artefacts and ephemera providing the decor and a long-forgotten 1930s movie called Polo Joe providing inspiration for the name. It's not all about the fillies, though - the room's impressive centrepiece comes from the swooping wooden propeller from a Vickers-Vimy biplane. 

There's plenty of variety on the food menu, with dishes ranging from tuna tartare with avocado, chilli and lime salsa to steaks from the grill, wild garlic and morel risotto, corn-fed chicken with black truffle, caponata and basil oil, and roast duck breast served with spiced aubergine, chickpeas, savoy cabbage and duck confit.

A detailed wine list focuses firmly on the old world, though bottles from California, Australia and New Zealand also feature. Expect, too, a range of classic cocktails, alongside bottled beers including Budvar, Birra Moretti, Brooklyn Lager and Greenwich Meantime Pale Ale.

As I arrived to this French American grill in South Kensington, I thought to myself 'Why on earth did I let my expensive-taste friend choose the restaurant without asking any question?' The menu seemed much more expensive than I had first expected – most dishes between £20 and £60 each and cheapest glass of wine £5.95! - but I had no choice but to walk in. As it turns out, I actually had a great evening! Yes, it was posher than places I would usually go to but it was still friendly. My friend had a Tastecard which allowed us to have 2-for-1 meals and it was so worth it! She ordered a garlic and cream risotto and I went for the lemon and thyme baby chicken with garlic mash – delicious! I was too full by the end of the main to get a dessert but I was really tempted by a few really cool desserts including crumbles and brownies.


while the waiters were friendly, service was just ok. The food was just ok too. But the chocolate fondant was mostly uncooked. Quite a disappointment from previous visits.


it is in my neighbourhood so used to go there on sundays for brunch: after management change quite intolerable. called in advance , was advised there is a 15 min wait. after more than a hour wait in the bar being ignored by management, gave up and went to the thai place across the road which turned out to be a brilliant decision.
