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.

    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 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.

    I wanted somewhere close to the V&A that had a good gluten free selection for my mum’s birthday. I selected The Town House and hit an absolute gold mine. Firstly the service was fantastic - welcoming, professional and mindful of our allergies. The food was delectable, a really good selection and everything beautifully prepared and presented. The atmosphere was relaxed and elegant and it was the perfect place to have such a delicious meal. The staff also made a lovely fuss of my mum with a rose and a card along with a glass of fizz and some amazing macarón.... over and above what you would expect and really a lovely touch. Most of all it seemed sincere rather than cynical, which was lovely. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Town House and look forward to returning!

    From the moment we arrived Thomas made us feel very welcome and escorted us to the comfortable lounge tub chairs in front of the crackling fire to wait for our dining experience to begin. Barbara was our waitress for the event and nothing was too much trouble. She was very knowledgeable and was always aware if we needed top ups for drinks etc. We advised by email earlier in the week that my daughter was gluten intolerant and the chef delivered delicious gluten free options on the day that we’re almost identical to the normal foods. The food not only looked amazing just like the various London landmarks but the taste was also magnificent. The decor of the dining area was beautiful with fresh flowers and beautiful art work and top class fixture and fittings everywhere. The club chairs were very relaxing and we left very full and very satisfied. The extra £10 optional service charge was well deserved. Thank you Thomas and Barbara and the chef for an absolutely fabulous couple of hours. A must do!
