Tucked away with its very own Michelin star on a picturesque Kensington backstreet, Launceston Place presents fine British cuisine with creative flair, and was voted as one of Time Out’s Top 50 London Restaurants.

Housed in an elegant building that dates back to 1839, Launceston Place Kensington has a sophisticated dining room, featuring the classically elegant Chef’s Table, adjoined to the kitchen with a live link-up via the plasma-screen TV. The signature 6-course tasting menu is partnered by Launceston's award-winning wine list, which features New World favourites and Old World picks from the experienced head sommelier. A seasonal 3-course market menu is available every night except Friday and Saturday.

Only a 10-minute walk from the Royal Albert Hall, Launceston Place Restaurant, London is also just a 5-minute walk from Kensington High Street.

    My husband, daughter (8 years old) had dinner at 7pm. The starters were amazing. The main course. Duck was ok. The service was outstanding. The offer was very good value for money as it included a glass of champagne (pink), which we were not aware of.

    The chefs table was a wonderful experience, great to see what is happening and to talk to the chefs brilliant, but also the private room works really well for business meeting combined with a bit of show.
