SquareMeal Review of The Cumberland Arms

While not somewhere to head for ‘a big night out’, The Cumberland is nonetheless a ‘great local pub’, servicing a stretch of West Kensington not otherwise blessed with boozers. The interior features plenty of stained wood, though the furniture could do with ‘an update’, notes one reader. Food mixes seasonal British ingredients with Italian know-how, hence fettuccine is teamed with pheasant, tomato, red wine & rosemary; own-made ravioli is filled with chicken, spinach & ricotta; & Tuscan rabbit casserole is among the heartier choices. Desserts such as coconut rice pudding with rhubarb compote take influences from closer to home, & blackboards of specials add further interest. The global wine list, containing several decent choices, keeps below £30, & Landlord is one of a fine batch of ales on tap.

Biscuit silver reviewer 28 March 2011

I have been going to The Cumberland for a few years now and have to say it's a great local pub, with good food, drinks and on the whole a very relaxing ambience. I can only recall of one time when I wasn't able to get a table, becuase of a party, which on a lazy weekend is quite important to me. I like to go there with a small group of friends, as we can chat away in peace over a nice bottle of wine. The food is really quite good, particularly the complimentary bread which is always warm, and the suasage pasta dish is great for a hangover! The staff are always friendly and helpful, and it seems that dogs are always welcome, which i really like. I wouldn't say this is a pub you go to on a big night out, but if you live locally, its definitely worth a visit. The only recommendation I would have for the owners would be to update the furniture… some of the chairs are a bit rickety!
