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 lovely environment and a stunning, delicious afternoon tea. So well balanced, and those who had the vegetarian option were so well catered for and did not feel like second class citizens as you can in some places!

    We had a very enjoyable experience thanks to the lovely waiting staff who looked after us the entire evening. Our waiter was very funny and attentive but I can't remember his name. he is originally from Bulgaria but has lived here most of his life. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The lighting and atmosphere also perfect. Expensive but it was for a special occasion.

    Had the London landmarks afternoon tea which was superb! Afternoon tea is filling to start with but to add the little "savouries" was a little too much though absolutely delicious. Service was impeccable and it was a nice and varied selection of sweets and sandwiches.
