This is now our new match day pub for Chelsea, even if it is a bit of a walk to the ground. Great staff, a great range of ales, craft beer and wine and to top it all a brilliant bar snack menu. As there were three of us we ordered three items each off this list and shared them,... More

Great new fresh look to the pub. You'd think from the outside it was just a pub. But you will be very pleased when you step into a wonderful gastric pub with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Some great speciality beers and largers. Food was amazing veggie option didn't let the place down either. Had the aubergine dish. Scallop crab Scotch... More

Looking for a pleasant pub in Kensington and a decent Sunday roast? Try the Hanson Cab. Food: Sunday roast with all the trimmings. I’m a self-proclaimed prime rib expert and I found this roast good but not great. Good flavor. Generous portions. No complaints. Atmosphere: Popular bar with friendly vibe. Classic English pub style. We stayed for the Sunday quiz... More

Admittedly we turned up at 8.30 on Sunday evening, after travelling from Bristol to London and probably expected to be told that the Sunday Roasts had all been served - but thankfully we were wrong. I ordered the lamb, and it was a mighty fine example of a great roast dinner, which was enjoyed in relaxing surroundings. And the beer... More

We had pre-picked this pub knowing it was going to have Guinness on tap, the kind of pub food we like and easy walking distance from our hotel, NH London, Kensington. From the moment we entered we felt welcomed and at ease. The busy bar staff greeted us with a hearty 'good evening folks' and said he would be right... More

This is a quiet pub, but the food is outstanding! I've been to London twice now, and hands down, the fish and chips a Hansom Cab were the best I've ever had.

Called in on a Thursday morning for a few glasses of cask ale. Simple enough? No......only one on with the remainder off. Why? Place looked a little tired and not very clean. Good location but that's about it. Would not return.

Stumbled across this gorgeous little pub whilst staying nearby. Warm and inviting on a cold winters night. Went with a group of friends and we all had fabulous meals. We all had plenty on our plates, staff was good and friendly, fast service. Very enjoyable.

This is an unassuming pub in a local neighborhood on Earls Court street but the food is all made in house and fabulous! A lot of Pubs in London serve from the same menu title "The Best Pub Food" and tho it is adequate, it comes from the same purveyor and they all have the same menu choices. Trust me... More
