Ease yourself into neighbourhood bar Percy's, to hunker down in intimate booths or on a cosy sofa. You can grab a bite or two of the Kensington restaurant's British tapas plates, including honey mustard sausages and Cornish cod bites. Don't forget to try the hidden door to secret bar Casamigos too.

The Duke of Clarence is a classic British boozer with a difference. You can enjoy everything from a casual brunch and small sharing plates to lavish steaks, with all cuts sourced from an award-winning family butcher.

The Britannia

For a mighty fine roast with lashings of gravy in Kensington, look no further than modern pub The Britannia. Proudly sitting on the site of the old brewery, the pub is steeped in history and has provided its guests with the very best service since 1834. Expect comfy leather armchairs, a cosy bar and a contemporary dining area.
