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.

Head 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.

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.

    A fantastic, belated Mother’s Day treat for my mum. Impeccable service, delicious food and stunning surroundings. I can not fault a thing. From rhubarb mousse to Stilton and broccoli tart, our taste buds went on an incredible adventure. Highly recommend this afternoon tea for its service, surroundings and unique aspect from starter to the main afternoon tea. Thank you.

    I was there with my 14 year old niece for a delicious afternoon tea.
    Service was very warm and extremely friendly from the moment we entered the place.
    Little changes on the menu were no problem at all and the food was delicious.
    The London Landscape theme was perfect with so many little details. You can see how much effort the cooking team put into it.
    We both loved it!

    The food was great and the service flawless but what really left us an incredibly perfect impression was the waitress Barbara!! She made our experience at the Kensington restaurant perfect!!! Every waiters should be as great doing their job and relating to people as she does!! Thank you so much Barbara for your delicate attentions for our engagement! We will not forget about this :-)

    The London Landmarks Afternoon Tea was spectacular and the service was so incredibly friendly.

  • ((((* 11 April 2019 by Tracy from London

    Afternoon tea was delicious but staff lacked a certain amount of attention. No "follow-up" so to speak, nobody came to ask whether all was OK or whether anything else was needed ( more sandwiches, tea, milk ). Cream and jam came in very small bowls. Considering we were 3 guests = 6 scones, this was hardly enough for 3 scones.

    The best afternoon tea I’ve had. The sandwiches were fresh and tasty and the cakes delicious. The London Landmarks theme was fun and well executed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I’d happily go again.
