A pleasant pub in the big smoke
11/01/2010 by piph2000
Coming from more rural parts of the country, where the great british pub is a treasured asset. It was with some trepidation that I went to the Scarsdale, based only on the mixed reviews it had received on this and other sites. However, as it was near to where I was going it was worth a punt and I am glad I went. They keep a very pleasant pint of London Pride and my girlfriend and I both enjoyed the mulled wine which was very welcome as we had just come in from the snow. It is subtley decoreated inside and was bustling with a late luncthime crowd when we arrived, The food coming out of the kitchen looked very appealing, so much that we ordered chilli nachos to nibble on and very nice they were too. The bar staff were efficient and I was served promptly. I dod not expect them to greet me like a long lost friend as per other reviews but they certainly seemed on good terms with some patrons who appeared to be regulars. All told The Scarsdale is a good pub with which to frequent in London and I will be returning.Report this
Tucked away nicely
10/06/2009 by snowbadger
If you are ever in Kensington High Street, want lunch but want to sample some tucked away, back street goodness go to the Scarsdale. Sat on the picturesque Edwardes Square there is a nice small front facing garden and the pub feels like a pub inside. Nicely kept, original features - all good stuff. Largely Fullers on tap, and a decent menu. We were served quickly, the food was really nice (Scampi and Wedges) and generally all good.Report this
Best Pub in London?
06/01/2009 by alexgjohnson
The Scarsdale is what a pub should be. It is friendly, albeit in an extremely affluent area - reflected in the patrons. It serves good seasonal drinks - the usuals, Pimm's in the summer, mulled wine in the winter. It has a roaring open fire for the winter, and a terrace outside for the summer, facing a lovely garden square. Food is very decent - I would say not "gastro" but it does what it sets out to do, and is appropriately priced. And it is dog-friendly - a perfect stop-over after a walk in Holland Park: think labradors and beagles, not old men with dogs on bits of string. It has a TV for rugby etc. but it is unobtrusive for those less interested. It is my favourite pub in London - nothing is amazing but everything is just right.Report this
Superb atmosphere, don't choose the bar food
14/06/2008 by oogywawa
This agreeable hostelry gets 4 stars purely for atmosphere and a decent drinks menu. To get the negatives out of the way, the food was a pig with lipstick. Nicely presented, hugely average taste deficient lazy cooking for the masses. How the 'clucking bell' can you still get away with charging £11 for fish n chips and serve tartar from a catering pack and have the affrontry to tell me that it's freshly made - from what glue, such was the consistency??? The restaurant might be a different matter but the only plus was that the nosh was generally cheap(ish) - given the area. But that said, given the area and disposable incomes why not serve superb food and charge a bit more... What redeemed all of this was a genuinely convivial atmosphere, well served beers and mixers and splendidly comfortable surroundings. The crowd spilled out onto the street such was its popularity - a mixture of pretty & handsome local professionals, ruddy faced downbeat public school types and affable tourists, all rubbing along nicely. An excellent local that is maybe complacent about the food given that it's guaranteed to be full each night with regulars who don't go to eat.Report this
Off the beaten track....

I bumped into this nice pub on my way to the Odeon Cinema in High Street Kensington. I was looking for a parking space in the back streets, it was dark, saw the lights of something which looked nice: the Scarsdale Tavern. The Scarsdale is a very nice and cozy pub...I really have a thing for their lights. The atmosphere is just very nice. They serve food in the pub, but also have a restuarant at the back. And some tables outside, so it's perfet any time of the year. I never tried the restaurant, but the pub menu is actually quite good.Report this
