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.

    We enjoyed an enjoyable late lunch prior to going to the ballet. The food and service were both good, but nit exceptional. The price however was exceptional.

    We had the Beauty & Beast afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the standard of service from the wait staff was superb. It was a great afternoon!

    Nice place, was a tad quiet when we went between Christmas and New Year. Good was lovely, shame they charged for bread and water where most other places don’t Only other thing was because it’s a hotel there were young babies crying which wasn’t really complimentary to the atmosphere After dinner we went into the bar and had to keep asking for drinks so deducted the service charge at the end and they weren’t happy! I pay for service when I get it!

    A great meal at The Townhouse. We are a family of four and the restaurant catered for all our needs. The service was excellent - there was a hiccup with the timing of the starter and main meal for one the of the children but the staff were very apologetic and couldn't do enough to make amends. We would certainly go back and thoroughly recommend the restaurant.

    Fantastic, if you enjoy the film this will be right up your street. Did feel a little rushed out the door and due to the table lay out ended up assisting those serving, which isn’t what you expect when you are charged 12% for this service.

    Everything was exemplary. Service was excellent and really helped to cater for my 3 year old. Even suggested that she just share some of our high tea as opposed to having her own which she might not finish. And have her a hot chocolate! Food was wonderful, the explanation of how it relates to Beauty and the Beast was excellent - especially when the waiter was French with his accent as well!! Nothing was too much for any of the staff. Food was great, service was excellent. I would definitely recommend!
