Restaurant description

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.

    The London themed afternoon tea at The Town House is without doubt the best afternoon tea I have ever had. Everything about it was amazing. The champagne cocktail started it off well. The savoury canapés were so tasty. The London Eye cake stand was super impressive. I mostly loved the London landmark cakes, probably the Gherkin was my favorite but they were so dainty and so perfect. The service was spot on, exactly the right amount of attention. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

    The service was great, the food was really delicious and the atmosphere really nice. The tea was okay, but nothing special and the there weren't that many choices you could make.

    Amazing!!! We arrived to the Kensington early for our reservation we were seated in a beautiful room and they took our coats and offered water. We were soon asked to move into another delightful room and seated by the fireplace and greeted by Barbara. From the moment we met she took great care of us, answering all our questions and making great recommendations. The Food from the start was well presented and truly delicious. Thomas came over and introduced himself and spoke to us for a bit, he found out it was our anniversary he was SO happy for us and brought us many congratulations from the staff and hotel. The ENTIRE experience was BEYOND what we expected. Barbara and Thomas were just so sweet, They won’t be forgotten. It truly was a great experience.

    Lovely setting and very nice staff. Overall the food was delicious however I think there’s room for improvement with the cakes. Big Ben was nice but not particularly complex in flavour, the gherkin was delicious but I wasn’t blown away by the other two. It’s missing something with a good sponge, something that shows off the best of british desserts.
