Square Meal Review of Kensington Place ?

Its glory days may be long gone, but ‘KP’ has regained some of its impetus following a refit and a change of culinary emphasis. Inside, a black-and-white tiled floor and cloth-free tables emphasise the contemporary brasserie vibe, while the addition of sound-cladding soaks up what was once a considerable celeb-fuelled din. The all-purpose, French-inspired menu has been replaced by a bistro-style offering that leans heavily on seafood from next-door's fishmonger, with appetisers including the likes of spiced Devon crab or Cornish mackerel rollmops with potato salad. After that, pair your chosen ‘market fish’ with various sauces and sides or opt for, say, roast cod with ham, braised chicory and heritage beetroot. There are also steaks and game for the carnivores, while dessert might bring sticky toffee sundae with candied walnuts. Special dos in the private room come in for fulsome praise.
