The Milestone Hotel and Residences

Sunday Roast Lunch Offer: Complimentary glass of Champagne and 3 other offers

Relaxed and quirky, this gorgeous hotel restaurant just a short walk from the Royal Albert Hall boasts a stunning selection of eats from simple chicken noodle soup to chargrilled wagyu steak. Head over to see why The Milestone makes our list of the best restaurants in Kensington and Chelsea.

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.

EVE Kensington

A cafe, bar and restaurant all bundled up into one, EVE is a gorgeous Kensington haunt with menus inspired by the vibrant flavours of the Mediterranean. Go for the lamb shawarma wrap and stay for the epic soundtrack of their weekly Friday night bash.

The Orangery at Kensington Palace

Dine like royalty at The Orangery at Kensington Palace, where you can find a mouthwatering all-day menu served in gorgeous surrounds. This stunning spot has been around since 1704, and today it features beautiful white interiors and a sunny outdoor terrace. You can nab delicious dishes like wild mushroom tortellini, braised lamb shoulder pie or seared chalk stream trout here, as well as indulgent afternoon teas for just £55 per person.
