A word from Sticky Fingers
Born in 1989 to legendary Rolling Stones rocker, Bill Wyman. Sticky Fingers Café was aptly named in tune to the infamous album released by the band and was the concept of Bill Wyman’s idea of what kind of restaurant he enjoyed and London should have some it too.

This haven of good times, great food, and original Stones memorabilia continues to provide an enviable environment for eating, drinking, and having fun.

Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers remains one of London’s favored restaurants serving award winning burgers, great tender steaks, and the best ribs in London. The service is always friendly and welcoming testifying that Sticky Fingers is even stronger today than the trend it started many years ago.

Diner Reviews
  • "Everything fabulous but the 12.5 percent service charge"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Toilets need to be serviced more regularly - not good. They are also in need of an update which the restaurant acknowledges. Food was good but not brilliant."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "First visit but definitely not the last, food was fantastic kids meals were huge. Staff were friendly and efficient and really made an effort with our boys. Restaurant has ridiculously cool memorabilia and the u.s diner setting adds to the experience. I had the texan pulled pork hot dog and I'd recommend to anyone!"

  • "Daughter's birthday. Liked it a lot, food very good. Service a bit slow but our waiter was lovely."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Staff were fantastic. Food is bland. Left most of our food but we did not complain however, waiter saw food left and asked what was wrong. Pleasant chat and a discount given so we could not fault them. Loos grubby. Not sure Mr Wyman et al would eat here!"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "A great menu to match the hard rock ambience of this establishment. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff made it easy to enjoy eating here. Although I did not have children with me I would say the kids I saw there were loving it, you will have no trouble finding something that they will seriously enjoy eating. The restaurant is definitely an experience worth having and be sure to look around when you are there. If you are having more than one course then I suggest you ask for a bit of a break between dishes as the staff are fast and efficient."

  • "Never been to Sticky Fingers before, took my 16 year old twins there as a birthday treat, based on decent reviews. It was an early August Friday night & I booked a table using the website, which went smoothly enough although a quick phone call may have been quicker. The restaurant is a few hundred yards from High Street Kensington tube up a side road opposite & is easy to find. We were warmly welcomed on early arrival & shown to our table straight away. I was surprised to see that the place was only about a third full on the night we went, maybe because it's the holiday season? Nice feel to it, plenty of rock & roll artifacts on the walls & good tunes playing. Ribs & wings were great, shakes to die for. £90 for 3, well worth a visit!"

  • "The staff are very helpful and the food was delish! Will definately come back again for another girlie get together."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "A bit of the beaten track but worth the effort to get to. Family shared starters of jalapeno poppers and chicken balls. Mains-burgers perfectly cooked, hot dog and sf chicken also given thumbs up. Sides of coleslaw and japapeno honey a bit different and very good. Bbq sauce on table along with hot sauce and bottle of water delivered along with menus. Proper burger bar vibe with good music and plenty to look at on the walls. The boothes around the outsides were great however I would say the tables in the middle of the room seemed a little cramped (but to be fair you will find anywhere in London). The waiter was fantastic; very attentive and engaging. Rate much higher than Ed's, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock Cafe etc and would go back."

  • "Sticky Fingers changed the menu between booking and arrival. Madness monday was not available. The classic burger we had last year was now a very plain burger. Read only a bun with meat, thats all. Only served with fries and a small pickle. Taste was good but not the burger we expected. I think the change is not good. At first we wanted to visit twice but we didnot go back."

  • "First time we dine in sticky fingers and our experience is great specially our server Ines is very attentive, friendly and very helpful. I can highly recommend her to be your server for the day. Ambiance is great same as the music they play we feel like in 1960's and it's great. Food is ok not really enjoy my southern chicken but over all experience is excellent. You guys did a good job. Well done."

  • "We have been several times before over the years. Also this time our dinner and drinks were fine. Service was fine but at the end when presented with the bill, the waitress kept looking over my husband's shoulder and asked him if he was not going to add a tip on top of the 12.5% service charge. We always thought that service charge was the same as giving a tip. The waitress said:"The service charge is not for me. It is for everybody else. If you give a tip then that is for me". We are very confused because this is the first time ever that we have been asked for an extra tip. Sticky Fingers needs to review their service policy. The evening ended on a very sour note. I am afraid we will not be returning."

  • "It's a great place to get down and dirty with most probably the best rasting ribs in the world."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Went to Sticky Fingers and had a hard time making a selection. Their hamburgers, ribs and fried chicken are among the best in the area but went for something different and had the fried catfish. It was out of this world - YUMMMMM. If you're in the High Street Ken area, and are looking for something close to a North American experience, you'll love it. Not a vast menu, but what they do - they do really well."

  • "Had very good time at Sticky Fingers visiting London for my 60 birthday and daughters graduation"

  • "Went for a birthday lunch, really looked after us. The food was top notch and out waitress Ines really made us feel special! Great experience!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "A family favourite when in London. Unfortunately it was very disappointing for my first visit. Problems with both courses, both due to the waiter not paying attention. The first course wasn't what we ordered and had to be sent back. Then the main course (burgers) were all medium rare even though we specified well done when ordering. One of our group couldn't stomach this and decided to go hungry instead. Perhaps just an unlucky night!"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "Menu, once broad in scope and generally good, now shrunken and less appealing. Once good, now awful, hamburgers. Instead of a flavoursome, high quality and generous beef patty, now two skinny slivers of tough, low grade and rubbery meat. The new addition of "Southern fried chicken" is barely ok. Don't even try the mashed potatoes, served under a greasy puddle. We used to be regular customers of Sticky Fingers. We're not going back."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "The food was good as usual though the service was very pore and the cocktails were the worst I have ever had. A very annoying part of the visit is the drinks menu that has happy hour stickers all over the menu, which is very confusing as only some cocktails are included in happy hour. i.e. next to Kia Royale is a sticker that says happy hour but all the cocktails next to that sticker are not included. Then the standard of cocktails was very pore with little alcohol used to make them, as alcohol was not measured. I ordered 4 of the same cocktail and what was handed 4 very different drinks either full to the top or half full. When I queried the difference I was offered more ice!! Throughout the whole meal there were issues with the service."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "The food was plain. Nothing to do with a good hamburger."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "I took my son for his birthday and was really impressed, the food wasn't the cheapest but really good size portions and service was excellent. Was the perfect location for a teenager birthday and we all had a great meal."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "It was very interesting to see all the memorabilia. Food was okay - nothing special. All in all, not bad but wouldn't rush back."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "But we liked it. Same thing as this restaurant. Only disappointment, no music from the Rolling Stones."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "I've been to sticky fingers twice and both times i have been blown away. The food is absolutely mouth watering, service always great, cocktails are delicious, there's always good music playing and just the general feel of the place is great. Sticky fingers is a hidden gem on kensington high street and i cant wait to go there again!!"
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Ive been coming to Sticky Fingers for over 20 years and they have had their ups and downs with the menu but the new southern Style menu is the best ever. Fantastic burgers, the rack of ribs is still as good as ever. additional sides such as Mac n Cheese, pulled pork, corn on the cob have been added. And have always loved their cocktails. Definately recommend. Good vibe as well and as much as i love Rolling Stones, good mix of rock music."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We arrived at the Sticky Fingers one hour early (booked 6pm, arrived 5pm) - it was no problem to get a table! Service was outstanding friendly, the food was great. My wife had the best barbecue ribs ever, my burger was tasty, fresh, hmmmmm. My children had a plain burger and the chicken wings - very tasty. The ambiente was great, we had a look (any many photos) at Bills bass guitars and the golden records of the Stones. In our view one of the best places to be in London! Great rest after 6 hours in the National Historic Museum..."
    dined on 17/06/2014
  • "really enjoyed the food good quality and plenty of it used a 50% of voucher restaurant lived up to its name sticky fingers as i had the rack of ribs on the food friendly staff nice surroundings looking at the rolling stones memorabillia even stayed after 4 30 to sample a few cocktails at the bar would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant"
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • " Child's dinner was 1 drum stick and loads of chips - which cost £7:50. He ended up eating my chicken which was over cooked and greasy! Very over priced and poor quality. Would not go back!"
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Good food, fine wine, pleasant personnel - overall outstanding!"
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "Nothing too fancy. A bit like Frankie & Bennies. Food tasted really nice. Staff friendly. Just watch out for the 12.5% service charge ! You don't normally get that in this type of 'sit down fast food restaurant' "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "We arrived with a group of 8 people, and 5 of our 8 main meals were served cold (ribs and burgers). We each returned them and the waiter was very rude in taking back the food and blamed us as if we were the cause of the food. Prices are too high for the quantity; food was good but not extraordinary for the price paid. "
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "I have been here a few times but was quite disappointed on his occasion. Side dishes turning up after main meal had finished and lack of desserts which ere not made clear when the menu was handed to us. Very sad at this experience as I will no longer be recommending it."
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "We went for a Sunday late lunch, not many people in the venue so ambience was down, not many Rolling Stones records playing, food great but chose fries with burger mcdonalds style which were overcooked. Bought T shirt which turned out to be a ladies version and was too small. Hoping to swap it. Also allow for a non optional 12.5% service charge."
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "Our waitress never returned after bringing our drinks, except to bring us our check. My drink was finished before my food arrived. I was never asked if I wanted another drink. Workers were fooling around and throwing napkins at one another and one hit my daughter, who is 3. No injuries, just unprofessional. Food was good, but service was absolutely terrible. "
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "When the food arrived we were slightly concerned at the portion size and thought the food was over priced for the amount, however looks can be deceiving and we were both pleasantly surprised to feel adaquately full after our food. We had a 2For1 London voucher that you can use with National Rail tickets and this made the whole experience even more enjoyable ;-) Would recommend and would go again."
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "We asked for some water twice and that took twenty minutes to come. My prawns for starter were in a batter but had pieces of shell still on them! I then asked for sour cream with my main. It didnt come for another 15 minutes which by the time i asked two servers for it, i had nearly finished my meal! They then has the cheek to charge me for it! And also put a service charge on when the service was awful. Weve only ever heard good things but after this time, we wont be returning! "
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "Been to Sticky Finger's quite a few times in the last few years. Ambience was always great for R&R music lovers like me, food was fantastic and the staff was always nice and seemed delighted to be of good service. Last monday was my first time trying out the new menu and I was pleasantly surprised, way over the moon! The food flavor was stepped up a notch, adding quite a different presentation. My burger was terrific, The Pig, and Caesar salad as a side. Jalapeños were surprising and the NYC cheescake was even better than the last time. Staff great as usual. I will absolutely be back next month."
    dined on 26/05/2014
  • "The restaurant was very busy and had only a few members of staff. The staff member who looked after us was lovely but she didn't know whether she was coming or going. The food was pretty average and we had to send the rack of baby ribs back as they were cold Overall we've been but certainly won't be going back "
