Fabulous food in a beautiful setting - refined, not too loud, the focus is on the food, the wine and your conversations with your guests. Only slight negative was how quickly each course was delivered. Can’t wait to go back! More

Mediterranean | South Kensington, South West London

One of the best Sunday Roast in London! After Harrods closed its Georgian restaurant for Sunday Roast, I was despearte to find an alternative place where we can have good food in a nice atmospher. I used to live near the Blakes but moved away around 25 years ago and stopped visiting the Blakes since. I got to know that they are doing nice Brunch menu and when checking their menu, I found out they do Sunday Roast. I went there with three of my friends just check it out after 25 years of absense. Everything was perfect. The beef tasted on of the best I'd tasted in London, and friendly and lovely service staff. After the meal, we had lovely time relaxing in the coart yard and felt it was an ideal way to spend lazy Sunday afternooons. I'll be a regular visitor of the restant and recommend it to all my friends! More

We had a table for 7 at 1945 hrs and closed the restaurant down! The menu is good and the quality of food even better. A smallish but nicely diverse wine list provided a good selection to match the food choices. The waitstaff (Gabriel et al) were very attentive and welcoming. The restaurant is "snug", maybe too snug for larger groups, but very intimate. We had a super evening and will return when we can. More

Chose this hotel because it was the closest to the V&A museum and so glad we did. The afternoon tea was lovely. It was a Mary Quant tea so the sandwiches and cakes all were vibrant. There was a chocolate lipstick a rasberry couli nail polish. It was eye catching and very tasty. Highly recommended More

Thai | South Kensington, South West London

It’s a lovely place, food is quite nice and the service is welcoming. The only recommendation I have is to re-fill glass of water when it’s empty as otherwise you’d have to ask for it. Maybe giving a jug of water would be easier. Also they didn’t have the dish I wanted to order but maybe because it was on Monday which is not a popular day of the week to dine out. Quite pricey if you compare it with Busaba, most fishes are over £17 plus you need to order rice with pretty much any dish. More

The garden here is exquisite and peaceful, but we we sitting near a generator of some kind set behind the beautiful plants. The constant hum was awful - but the garden and long pool so lovely which offset the noise. We had mezza and a bottle of wine, both good, but the pitta bread too hard so we think pre-prepared. We finished off with coffees and I had one of the best hot chocolate drinks ever - dark and gorgeous. Apart from the generator and pitta bread, all was just lovely - admire this hotel, atmosphere and decor and certainly location! Our waitress, from Venezuela, could not have been more pleasant and efficient, and the other staff we encountered were also pleasant and quietly welcoming. We'll definitely be going there again.

Very tasty food. Slightly limited menu but still a very good choice. The steak was excellent and sides were delicious. A very nice setting and feels very spacious and a good distance between tables. IT was quiet when we went but seems a big enough room that even if it was full you wouldn't be drowned in everyone else noise. More
