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 atmosphere and decor was elegant. Food presentation was nice, but not to my taste. White chocolate mousse was too sweet, cogsworth was very dry and Mrs Potts was not explained to us. Sandwiches were adequate, and biscuit was disappointing as marzipan to make dress rather than icing. Very expensive and not as well themed as one would expect.

    Sandwiches couldn't be better!
    Deserts on the other hand was a bit heavy in the stomach but overall great.

    I came here for the Tale as old as time Beauty and the Beast afternoon tea and really enjoyed it. The food was very yummy and they catered to the fact I couldn't eat nuts. It was a lovely birthday treat and I would recommend it to any Beauty and the Beast fan.

    The food was great but the service was not. We arrived early and were asked if we wanted a drink from the bar. Having asked for a minute to look at the menu we were left for 15 minutes to place an order. Then it took a total of 30-40 minutes to sit at our reservation as previous group weren't in a hurry. Once sat the food arrived nearly an hour into our reservation and we were ignored in the corner. The cute extra touches of Disney to compliment the theme too a very long time to arrive. Despite having emails and phoned about dietary requirements in advance and the kind person I spoke to the day before told me the chef would be fully aware we still had to tell them for a forth time. There was a distinct lack of communication between front of house and those serving.

    What an amazing experience! My mum, my 6 month old son & me came along for Tale as old as time afternoon tea. What a delight! The food and every little detail was stunning from the snowball macaroon to the candle stick prop on the table! We loved it! I would sure do it again! Your staff are fantastic from the moment we entered the building to the bathrooms, lounge area, serving & explaining of our tea! I was made to feel very comfortable with breastfeeding my son. Our main waiter was excellent - I think his name was Saudo (sorry if it's spelt wrong)
