The Alfred Tennyson


A beautifully British gastropub at the heart of Knightsbridge.

On the corner of the quaint Motcomb Street and a stones throw from Belgravia’s Embassies, The Alfred Tennyson's cosy and intimate atmosphere spans four floors. With a buzzy ground floor pub featuring an outdoor seating area, bright and airy dining room with huge sash windows and two perfectly unique spaces for private hire. Soaked in British history, it was the poet laureate who was ‘always roaming with a hungry heart’ that was the inspiration behind this pub.

A real 'farm-to-fork' experience, the menu changes every 6 weeks with all ingredients sustainably and locally sourced in the UK and are perfectly paired with a carefully crafted drinks list including over 30 wines by the glass from small and unique producers.
