We had a private function and the waiter was fantastic, regularly checking to ensure if we needed extra drinks or food. He had a great manner, lovely balance of informality and professionalism. We had a great evening. Thank you

We had an amazing afternoon for 18 of us in one of the private rooms. The food and drink was excellent. Charlie, our waiter was amazing, as were the rest of the staff. They looked after us brilliantly and were particularly good at making sure the kids were happy, which made us happy! There was a slight mix-up with giving the room back at the end but the staff handled it fine so it went away. We will definitely be back

Well sourced ingredients. Food was appreciated and tasty but we felt the price of some dishes were far too high for what we received.

Slightly underwhelmed by the food and the dining room was pretty chilly. Most of the staff both in the bar and restaurant were completely disinterested, stand offish and unfriendly - apart fro Gabby and Stephen who were good, hence the 3 stars for service. One member of staff found it "difficult" to comprehend that a finger bowl is a better option than another napkin when eating prawns!

Everything was excellent, one of our party wanted her burger well done which it wasn’t & it was sent back twice but wasn’t as cooked as she wanted it. She recognised that the burger was so lovely and thick it would have been hard to have cooked it well done without overlooking the outside, however the server apologised & have her the meal for free which was fantastic of him. We have been to the Kensington before and bring friends who don’t live in Bristol as our restaurant of choice. We will continue to do so!

Really enjoyed our visit, nice pub and staff very friendly. The food was nice and tasty and good selection for a Sunday dinner. Pudding was nice but would have been better with more crumble on top!

excellent food and service. One minor criticism is that I think you should give more than one roast potato on the kid's roast dinner.
