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.

PJ's Grill says
PJ’s Bar & Grill was opened in 1990 by restaurateur Brian Stein as a tribute to his love of great food and the sport of polo.

Designed with a classic ‘polo joe’ interior, the room pays homage to the great sport with its many displays of polo artefacts and imagery.

The unique centrepiece of the double-height space is a beautiful, suspended wooden aeroplane propeller from one of the first original Vickers-Vimy c.1911.

Today, PJ’s continues to be at the forefront of the Chelsea social scene.

The lunch and dinner menus at PJ’s feature a range of dishes appealing to anyone who appreciates good food made with the best ingredients available.

The emphasis is on quality and seasonality. Our head chef and his team work closely with our suppliers in sourcing the right ingredients and following the seasons to prepare classic and innovative modern-European dishes.

The infamous brunch menu at PJ's, available on weekends, includes all the classic brunch favourites our guests have come to expect.

A friend was looking for an excuse to have a tipple in the South Kensington area, perhaps a little too early in the morning for a weekday. I said the only thing that is socially acceptable at this time is a Bloody Mary. His eyes lit up. 'I know a place,' he said. Knowing my fury for bad Bloody Marys (too thick, too thin, not spicy enough etc.) I was hoping he would deliver. And he did.

Introducing PJ's Grill. I can't comment on the food and I can't really comment on the decor as I sat outside. What I can say is that the Bloody Mary was good and the service was amicable and swift. Not sure I'd ever find a reason to return but at least I know somewhere that I can get a good Bloody Mary in South Ken.


Really great meal, had the tuna ceviche and it tasted amazing, my wife had the carpaccio and she loved it.  Really busy and a great vibe, the staff we're very knowledgeable and made all the right reccomendations.

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.
