Our second trip to London. Ate at Bumpkin during our trip in 2011. It's near our hotel in South Ken. When we arrived after an overnight flight from Chicago, we dropped our bags and headed to Bumpkin for lunch - knowing it would be charming, good food and good hospitality. Did not disappoint. Menu has some locally sourced items, cool... More

Unfortunately I can not give a good rating. Pleasant place, nice service but food was not as Good as I thaught. Especially the main course with cakes was awful. At the request of service for its exchange after 15 minutes of waiting I received exactly the same, I was not mentioned this meal. I have not even heard sorry. That's... More

My fiance and I went to this restaurant for dinner after reading great reviews, and we were not disappointed! The decor and general ambiance of Bumpkin is charming and comfortable, and we immediately felt happy with our decision to eat there. The staff was friendly without being overwhelming and the food was delicious. As a vegetarian, I was thrilled to... More

We have the Sunday Roasts here at least twice a trip. It is the very best! Best sticky toffee pudding too. I've read a few posts that didn't rate it quite so highly but honestly, we've been about 6 + times with just my husband and myself, with my family and with friends and not once did we have bad...

I have visited this restaurant a few times. However tonight, was a disaster. I was readily seated in the bar area. While waiting for my order, a new reveller joined the table next to me by sitting in front of my table forcing me to ask for another table. The sea bass with oyster mushrooms, potatoe and leeks in a... More

We had the most wonderful cozy wedding lunch in the private dining room at Bumpkin South Kensington. The private dining room setting was fantastic and so were the food and the wine. The ribs and the duck confit were amongst the tastiest food choices, but nobody complained really, regardless of what they had.The staff that served us were extremely nice... More

First night in London and asked the concierge at the Kensington Hotel for a good, representative fish and chips place and this place hit it out of the park! Great service, even better fish and chips, plus a fantastic chocolate creme brulee w/ sweet cherries. That alone is worth the trip to London!

Description
Bumpkin restaurant is a new thing, a country-in-the-city organic eatery that���s opened its doors on the Old Brompton Road in London���s South Kensington. Bustling with an art-collecting, sports-jacket-wearing local crowd, Bumpkin is a warm and cosy restaurant that has been decorated with farmhouse-chic furniture and eclectically upholstered chairs to relax in while you watch the chefs create their magic in the open-plan kitchen. The classic British cuisine revolves around the availability of fresh market ingredients, so the menu at Bumpkin changes frequently with sumptuous daily special as well. Apart from olive oil, all the ingredients on Bumpkin���s menu are one hundred percent British. Signature dishes include a variety of organic pies, gourmet salads and grilled fish accompanied by an excellent selection of wines, ciders and real British ales. We love this local gem, and it's an ideal spot for post-shopping salads, Sunday roasts and Bloody Mary���s, and organic on-the-run snacks.

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.
