So to the Hereford arms, we were in London for a short break and were attracted to the pub by the reviews on trip advisor. It's buzzy and busy in the evening, the restaurant is set to one side of the main room. Service is good, friendly and efficient, menu nice and varied with specials and a good wine list.... More

We especially like their Sunday Roast. Traditional but updated. Their beers are very good as we like Fuller's. The decor is old story, wood, few tables made from sewing machines, separate area fr food but you can get it anywhere. Outside area, too.

We were recommended this place by a cabbie after visiting the Natural History Museum In South Kensington. Great food, service and beer selection. I would highly recommend this place for food, service and the vibe was great. Here's the itinerary: Hit museum row in the morning, have a great lunch at Hereford, walk it off heading back to the Kensington... More

Our concierge recommended this for a great pub lunch. Our family agreed after several other tries that this was the best fish and chips we had on our trip.

Stopped here for lunch but all the tables had been reserved in the dining area and also the bar area. We managed to occupy arm chairs and small table just being vacated and ordered drinks which were served to us by pleasant staff. Very busy as it was a Sunday lunchtime. A pleasant atmosphere with lots of people making conversation... More

Ourserver, Nausher, was excellent! he was very friendly, and helpful. Given no one from our gourp of 6 about is familiar with the various beers on tap, he brought a sample of several local brews so we could taste before ordering. Food was very good and nice sized portions. We will definitely go back!

Been here before on a previous visit to London. The pub has a good atmosphere but this visit I found the menu choice a bit limited. I made the mistake of choosing the Mussels from the ''chefs specials' on the blackboard. They were very disappointing! Although the cider & bacon sauce was tasty the mussels were so small .... not...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
