Sticky Fingers
Venue says Come and try our smoked stack burger served with paprika spiced potatoes! Available now.

Once a fixture in Soho, Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers cafe (taking its name from the Stones' album) has been serving up quality burgers, ribs and steaks, not to mention cocktails, since 1989. The move to Kensington doesn't seem to have dimmed its popularity, perhaps thanks to a special all-inclusive party menu and a three-hour happy hour. 

The menu is typical southern American staples – think slow-smoked beef short ribs, St Louis-cut rib, BBQ pulled pork beans and mac ’n’ cheese. You can also try an ice cream and coke float from the soda fountain, as well as freakshakes should you really want to get indulgent.

Sticky Fingers says
Sticky Fingers restaurant, created by legendary Rolling Stones rocker Bill Wyman, was aptly named in honour of the famous album released by the band, and is the concept of Bill Wyman’s idea of what he most enjoys in a restaurant: 'a haven of good food and good times'.

At Sticky Fingers, our food is designed for getting your fingers dirty and your face sticky!

Moving with the trends, we recently made a few changes to our food menu and whilst some of our favourites have remained on our menu, we have also made way for some new dishes. These include slow-smoked beef short ribs, St Louis cut rib, barbecue pulled pork beans and everyone’s favourite, mac ‘n’ cheese.

The bar menu also features a good range of creative concoctions taking inspiration from the original classics, and an extensive list of good wines, beers and hard shakes add edge to our feel-good venue.

Never order from them for delivery! I ordered at 7pm. At 9pm, the status changed to delivered but it wasn't. Customer service was horrible, redelivery was scheduled for 10pm so I had to cancel. Horrible!!!!!

I've been here quite a few times over the last 5 years, but most recently with a group of friends for a birthday.

We had a very friendly waitress but I can't say much for the manager. It's also the second time I've come here when the toilets have not had any loo paper in them and I've had to go back upstairs to ask for some.

The food is standard, filling, American grub. More Planet Hollywood than Blues Kitchen and The Diner, but still not bad, and the menu has recently been revamped.

The ribs, wings and mac 'n cheese are great to share when you're in a group.

But my Sticky Salad which was supposed to come with Gorgonzola cheese but there was no sign of it.

During the week there's a happy hour between 5 and 7. There's a selection of cocktails but they're nothing to rave about. Stick to the selection of American beers and wine.

Speaking of wine, our group ordered a few bottles of house red which we were told they'd run out of. The next bottle up was obviously more expensive- and not just by one or two pounds- so I asked if we could have it at the same price as the house bottle- not an unreasonable request.

Our waitress went to ask the manager, only to come back and say that 'the manager says you can't'. We ordered it anyway. Then we also ordered a bottle of house white wine amongst other drinks. When the other drinks were being brought our waitress said they'd also run out of the house white. So again I said we should really be given the next option for the same price- it's not our problem that they've run out. But again the manager refused. So we ended up paying more.

Firstly if anything has to be referred to the manager, the manager should be coming to deal with it- not sending the waitress to pass on their response. I expect the manager to be coming to the table and explaining why we should have to pay about £25 more on wine because they'd run out.

Secondly, check your bill. When we got it luckily one of us actually checked it and noticed we'd been charged for an extra bottle of wine which we didn't order or have.

Not saying they'd done that on purpose, but it could've easily been missed especially being in a big group.

While I've come here several times and had no real issues, unfortunately my last visit left a bad taste in my mouth, thanks to a lack of customer service from the management.

But I'll give them another chance to try the new menu.
