British, Traditional Restaurants in Kensington
1. Maggie Jones’s British, Traditional restaurant in Kensington 6 Old Court Pl - W8
“Cosy, fun, old place that has been around for years and years” – a favourite in its time of Princess Margaret, who used to slip away to here from nearby Kensington Palace, and whose alias when booking provides the current restaurant’s name. Its rustic, heavily-romantic style isn’t dissimilar to its stablemate, La Poule au Pot, and it likewise serves “basic, traditional English dishes” designed to satisfy your hunger at a “decent price” rather than to dazzle your tastebuds. “There’s a reasonable wine list too, unless you go for the magnum where they measure with a stick how much of it you’ve taken from the bottle: amusing to say the least but not their best vintage…”
2. Churchill Arms British, Traditional restaurant in Kensington 119 Kensington Church St - W8
“Top-value Thai food with personality – love it!”. This slightly “bonkers” pub near Notting Hill Gate looks normal enough, until you discover its “quirky butterfly conservatory at the rear”: “a hustling and bustling” venue serving “tasty”, spicy scoff at prices that are “amazingly low for the area”. “Still a winner” after over thirty years’ service: in particular it’s “a great choice for eating with friends”.
3. Ffiona’s British, Traditional restaurant in Kensington 51 Kensington Church St - W8
2017 Review: Diners are made to feel welcome and special by the eponymous patronne of this “romantic” Kensington stalwart, which focuses on well-cooked traditional British dishes, and is popular for weekend brunches.
4. Cheneston’s Restaurant, The Milestone Hotel British, Traditional restaurant in Kensington 1 Kensington Ct - W8
2017 Review: “Charming”, traditional dining room, offering a tranquil refuge from Kensington. It is particularly recommended for its “feast” of a breakfast and splendid afternoon teas (“scones are perfect – crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside!”)
