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.

    Wir waren als Familie mit drei Personen zum Afternoon Tea im Kensington. Wir wurden freundlich begrüßt und herzlich, mit typisch englischem Humor von Thomas und seinem Team betreut. Es war ein Erlebnis, von dem wir noch lange erzählen werden. Die Törtchen in Form der Landmarks von London, die Sandwiches und die Scones! Alles sehr lecker und originell! Ein Nachmittag den man jedem nur empfehlen kann. Thanks for this

    I went to 4 different afternoon teas while visiting London, and this one was definitely a favorite. I loved the atmosphere and sitting in the lounge chairs as opposed to restaurant chairs. The waiter and waitress that waited on me were by far the best I had my entire time in London. They were both very helpful, attentive and genuinely interested in chatting with me. I ordered the afternoon tea menu, and everything was fantastic. The handwritten note that they handed me as I was leaving was the best touch! I recommended this tea to all of my friends who are visiting London soon!

    Vibe is good and fit to family. Good afternoon tea but the order of afternoon tea food placed on the tray layers are different from traditional ways, so it'd be better to add a bit explanation on this point. It'd be better to inform that the dinning room located on the ground floor to lower their expectation to street view. Also, shorten wait time for checking would be better.

    Excellent food and super environment. We had a corner table which worked perfectly - loved looking at all the book titles too! Service was excellent, highly attentive but not at all imposing.
