Located within a boutique townhouse, Kensington Hotel’s aptly named Town House restaurant is a casual affair, albeit one with a strong focus on quality food. The period rooms, wood panelling, parquet flooring and bay windows create an air of sophistication, without the pomp.

The food menu has been put together by executive head chef, Steve Gibbs. Dishes range from caesar salad, grilled asparagus with fresh crab and cress, and smoked salmon served with Guinness brown bread to poshed-up fish and chips, seared sirloin steak with watercress and horseradish, and whole sea bass with lemon and herbs, cooked on the grill. 

Desserts include gypsy pie, warm chocolate fondant and baked pineapple served with coconut sorbet. Steak sandwiches and croque-monsieurs feature too, should diners want something a little lighter.

Town House At The Kensington says
Located in the heart of South Kensington, the newly refurbished Town House restaurant is an all-day dining haven, accessed through its own discreet entrance on Manson Place. A home-away-from-home, Town House is the perfect space for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or to while away an afternoon over a delicious afternoon tea.

Executive chef, Steve Gibbs, formerly of Hix and Caprice Holdings, has created a menu to match all tastes, with the emphasis on fresh produce focusing on the seasons, balanced with a hand-picked wine list offering something for everyone. The restaurant experience, from the service to the ambience, make this unfussy space a local favourite.

The site is also home to the K Bar. Launched in February 2016 it is inspired by the sophisticated atmosphere of a gentlemen's club. Deep-grained oak panelling line a space softened by racing green and royal blue upholstery. Dimly lit lighting and accents of polished brass create a warm and inviting space. An impressive bar front with leather panelling and a rich green marble top accompanies a polished brass backbar display and bespoke wine fridges.

Our bar manager, Ben Manchester, has put together a cocktail list with unique recipes created to demonstrate how food and drink go so well together.

The Town House also doubles up as the perfect event and private dining space suitable for a wide variety of events – from wedding receptions to birthday meals, presentations, book launches and networking events.

The best venue for afternoon tea and relaxation, I particularly loved the sandwiches and the scones as they were very warm and crumbly plus the service is very attentive from George and Alessandro. Thank you and I highly recommend.
