Visited this small pub 3 times while at the Royal Geographical Society for a week. Out of the way in some mews in South Kensington, this is a great place to grab a pint. They had 6 handpumps with London Pride, Doom Bar, and Timothy Taylor's Landlord as regulars with various pale ales and ipas on the others as time went on. The pints pulled here were among the best I had in London, always fresh and always properly poured. There were also some taps with the typical imports but they had some meantime beers on draught as well. The food is serviceable and not bad considering the location.

Visited this pub a week ago, on my way to visit a friend living in that area. It's yet another "mews-pub" situated in a 19th mew building, quite hard to find/out of one's beaten track. A rare gem in Kensington area for real ales, it's frequented by upper-middle-class locals, rich foreign-residents (quite a few French and Americans), and Imperial College London's students~~

The interior is quite simplistic, not classy nor nostalgic at all: wooden-floor, plenty of large windows allowing much light to come through, purple-red celing and wall-paints, a weird chandelier hanging in the centre of the pub (can you imagine that in a rather low-ceiling pub?!) plus some X'mas-type string-bulbs... very bad-taste decor (if I may), though I could sympathise with the landlord's painful efforts to (try to) live up to the gastro-feel which is so "pandemic" in posh parts of London nowadays...

The L-shaped bar has 5 handpumps, serving London Pride on 3 of those, Adnam's Bitter and Young's Bitter on each of the rest. Several taps do the popular foreign beers to Londoners nowadays: Staropramen, Leffe Blond, Fruli Strawberry, Hoegaarden, Kuppers Kolsch... along with several rare bottled lagers in the fridge, incl. Cain's Finest Lager~~ The service from the amiable land-lady is quite friendly and polite, if not cosy, and a nicely poured pint was in order.

The pub also offers a nice, gastro-pub orientated menu and wine list, which I didn't try but saw other punters tucking in ever so merrily. All in all, this is a decent local, modern-style pub worth a visit if you happen to be in the Kensington/Knightsbridge area. If it's out of your way, it won't be too much of a loss if you never use it.
