Kensington Place

About Kensington Place

To many in the know food lovers, Kensington Place is where the British food renaissance all began. This was the first place where you could really enjoy seriously good food - light and simple but with deft, complex touches, in what is essentially a very smart, of-the-moment brasserie setting. Kensington Place taught us to expect fabulous space, madly buzzing ambience, top service, and food that made us swoon. And now? With ex-La Noisette and Greenhouse chef Henry Vigar at the helm a revamped menu is better than ever before while a refreshed interior remains true to the original chic and relaxed concept. Still number-one choice for media and stage types and the lucky local denizens of Notting Hill, Kensington Place ramps up the see and be seen factor while appealing to foodies as well.
