This converted stables in South Kensington is a great spot for a small group meal or a fun date. There are tapas options, as well as lamb, pork, and beef chargrilled on the robata. We tend to go for their sushi. It’s served without soy sauce. Instead, each piece of fish is topped with something that enhances its natural flavours, like a sliver of truffle, or a tiny mound of caviar.

The outdoor seating at The Builder’s Arms makes it perfect for summer days and drunken evenings. And it’s just one of the things that makes this such a great pub. They also have a pretty exciting menu of updated British classics that all come in at under twenty quid, a hefty wine list, and local craft beer tap takeovers.

Ceru is one of the sunniest restaurants in this part of town, and along with the modern Levantine dishes, their new and expanded -for-2020 al fresco dining area gives this South Ken spot proper vacay feels. The all-day menu is full of seafood, fritters, halloumi and spiced meats. Basically, if it goes with mint yoghurt, it’s on the menu.

Brindisa in South Kensington really comes into its own when the sun is out, the windows are open, and the outside seating is laid out. The usual standard tapas classics are all on the menu, so if you’re in need of a half-decent meal near the museums, this isn’t a bad shout.
