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 whole experience was lovely! The hotel and restaurant were so cute and all the staff were eager to help. The tea and champagne were very good as was all the food. My favorite food that I enjoyed was the starters, the scones and the pastries shaped like the London landmarks. The star of the show of course is the adorable London eye stand that you brought out filled with the cute pastries and delicious food. My Mom and I went for tea there while visiting from Detroit, Michigan and I really wanted to have a special tea experience with her and you guys went above and beyond. I really appreciated that they took a picture of us at tea “to have a memory.” One of my favorite experiences in London with my mom. Thanks so much for making it so special.

    Overall experience was nice but was underwhelmed by the quality of the food. The savouries at the start and the Big Ben were nice but some of the bread was stale, certain cakes were nothing fantastic and the scones were very dense. Not good value for money. However, the service was excellent.

    Wonderful experience. The servers were excellent and the food was really good. It was great to be able to choose more than one tea to try and the setting was beautiful.

    It was the first time that my friend and I booked a high tea. It was a very nice experience and I would recommend to everyone. The staff was so friendly and the food was delicious. We noticed that everyone from abroad were treated with a nice English rose. My friend and I will make it an annual event. I would like to thank the staff Barbara and I think the nice friendly man with the roses called Thomas....correct me if I'm wrong but I still remember him. A very friendly and funny bald man. Thank you for a wonderful and delightful experience.

    Amazing location and beautiful hotel. The food was superb and the staff, in particular our waiter couldn’t have done more for us. I booked this lunch to say goodbye to our dear friends travelling back to Australia . The Town house had left a hand written note for them , and they were presented with a rose and a beautiful ‘Goodbye’ desert. Amazing. I will hopefully be back . X
