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.

Always a great visit to the Kenny, excellent food, efficient service, our waitress managed to bring us brownie and ice cream for my nephew despite not being on the menu. Staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble

The Kensington is an absolute gem. The decor is paired back, but welcoming and comfortable. The food we had was incredibly tasty (I could have eaten my mushroom starter again). What sets the Kensington apart is the staff - warm, friendly, attentive (but not overly so), they made this the stand out night of our visit.

Absolutely excellent. Cooking on point, service that balance of treated like a long lost friend in a professional way. We’d like to rave about it much more but fear that we’d never be able to get a table again if everyone learns just how great it is x
