SquareMeal Review of Kens Bar and Garden



On the face of it, Kens (as in Kensington, its location) is unlikely to pull in picky locals, spoiled for hotel lounges hereabouts. The decor-by-numbers of the bar and ‘Library’ attached is fairly forgettable – naff digital flickering flames in place of a real fireplace notwithstanding. But there’s a hidden trump card: a vast lawned garden in the lea of a Grade II-listed church. Set with loungers and sofas and blessed with blankets and heaters, the space has become an all-weather draw. Kens’ cocktails – the likes of Royal Highball (a brandy and strawberry purée Bellini), Delilah (gin, Cointreau and lemon) or Negroni Sbagliato – cost no more than in local pubs, and an all-day menu covers everything from sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, salads, and fish & chips to sharing plates from Umami, the hotel’s pan-Asian restaurant. However, Sassenachs (and others) might refrain from the ‘Funky Scottish’ (deep-fried Mars bar, bacon and chilli flakes).
