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, Adi Mandokhot. 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.
Executive Chef Adi Mandokhot has created a menu to match all tastes where the emphasis is on fresh produce focusing on the seasons, balanced with its hand-picked wine list with something for everyone. The restaurant experience, from the service to the ambience make this unfussy space a local favourite.
Designed by Alexander Waterworth Interiors, the interiors reflect the buildings natural charm and old English Town House aesthetic.

I was so excited to go visit the hotel for the beauty and the beast afternoon tea, having booked it months in advance and taking a day off from work!
We arrived running slightly late and I had plans after so I let the waiters know that we were unfortunately in a rush. They didn't really take notice of the request to bring the food and the tea out, quicker and it was served at their usual pace. Despite this, the service was altogether pleasant and discreet.
The afternoon tea sweet treats were all themed and were pleasant apart from a jelly that was made to be the glass bell with the rose, as it lacked flavour. There were also Cogsworth and Lumiere figures scattered around the dining room but that was the only hint of the themed decor in the place.
It was also quite reasonably priced for a Disney themed afternoon tea.
Such a beautiful place to have lunch or dinner. It is quiet, cosy with the fireplace and the comfy sofas and chairs. The food is amazing and service always on top !
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.
