Great service and lovely food. Would prefer the option of just having one course though.

This was our first post lockdown roast and it was lovely! Great service, and the best food and drinks. The roast pork was next level! We will be back very soon 👌🏽 A lush atmosphere out on the terrace too.

Great Sunday roast with great service. Couldn't resist the 3 courses! Felt very Covid secure with distanced and screened dining tables which did not spoil a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We will be back soon

What an excellent evening, we were made to feel so welcome. The food was outstanding, especially considering the short notice of opening after dropping to tier 2.

Our server was spectacular! She had an incredible positive energy about her and went above an beyond to provide exceptional service. For example splitting a main on two plates for our friends that were sharing. I love the service and food at the Kensington and will be returning as soon as life goes back to normal...hopefully December!

Food was nice, but didnt think there was enough on the plate to warrant the cost. Shame as it is one of my favourite places, but wont be returning for a while. Service was great and covid secure.
