Located in the heart of South Kensington, the Town House restaurant & bar is an all-day dining haven, accessed through its own discreet entrance on Manson Place. While away an afternoon over a delicious classic afternoon tea or sip exquisite cocktails at the adjacent K Bar.

Executive Chef Steve Gibbs, formerly of Hix and Caprice Holdings, 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.

Designed by Alexander Waterworth, the interiors reflect the building's natural charm and old English Town House aesthetic, with a specially-curated library also adding to the charm. The Town House’s period rooms – consisting of 3 beautiful interconnecting spaces - of what were once individual Regency style townhouses, feature bay windows, working fireplaces, parquet floors and original art.

Launched in February 2016, K Bar is inspired by the sophisticated atmosphere of a gentlemen's club. Deep grained oak panelling lines the space which is softened by racing green and royal blue upholstery. An impressive bar front with leather panelling and a rich green marble top accompanies a polished brass back bar display and bespoke wine fridges. Bar Manager Ben Manchester, has put together a cocktail list with unique recipes created to demonstrate how food and drink go so well together.

South Kensington Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    The Town House at The Kensington Hotel was fantastic! Venue was elegant and very relaxing, not overcrowded or busy. It made for a very pleasant afternoon tea experience.

    The selection of food was lovely. Particularly the cakes

  • ((((* 30 November 2016 by Madeline from London

    A good selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones. Lovely setting for a posh afternoon tea. Works out as £50 with service charge on top of special offer for £45 for two.

    We had an excellent High Tea at the Town House Restaurant in the Kensington Hotel!

  • ((((( 27 November 2016 by Laura from Sauquoit

    We loved afternoon tea at The Kensington. The selection of savory and sweet offerings was beautiful and the array was plentiful. We ejoyed it all at a lovely, well appointed table for two in the lounge. The finger sandwiches were very good, particularly the smoked salmon and chicken with cranberry. We added on a glass of champagne for a few extra dollars. It was a bit pricey, but worth it; we'd do it again.

    The service in the hotel was nice and the enviroment is very cosy. Unfortunately the food was disappointed, either too sweet, or too plain.
