    Really really disappointed with Bumpkin. I am a huge fan of the show, and have supported the owners business ventures over the years including their bars in London, and preordering the cookbook a few years back. I finally made it to London and Bumpkin was one of the top on my lists. I knew going in this was a pub with traditional style British food, but our experience was awful. First, the waitstaff was unfriendly (other than the manager) and not attentive at all. We made a reservation after being told it got crowded for Sunday Roast, and we walked in with only three other tables occupied. We ordered a wine and a vodka tonic and it took nearly twenty minutes to receive them. Our food took even longer. The atmosphere was dull and dated. It isn’t a trendy modern spot, and I knew this, but boy did the show make it look way nicer on TV. The seat cushions were all ripped on the booth seats. The servers were wearing shorts and crop tops, it just looked unprofessional. The food was OK at best. The potatoes were hard, the meat was so fatty there was basically no real meat, and the veg was just ok. I would sadly never return. Had super high expectations as the owners claim to be some of the most “well known restauranteurs in the world”.

    Just too over priced for fish and chips.not good at all. I suppose because of the location that makes the cost so high but just not good at all.

    We went for Sunday roast and got the roast beef and sticky toffee pudding. Everything was fantastic! It was a nice day so we ate outside. Not too busy of a corner, quite nice. I'd certainly go again!

    Unfortunately the waiter didn’t understand much English and this caused confusion on two occasions asking very simple questions. Nice manner however that’s not enough when you’ve questions about the food! Toilets pretty grubby and food was ok.

    They’ve had a revamp. Food was good but service pretty amateur I’m afraid. No ginger beer available, that’s fine although it’s a short drinks menu. When I asked what the steak was served with the waiter had no idea, peering over my shoulder to try to read the menu which was difficult to read. Waited too long between courses when the staff showed no interest in the customers’ existence. Half full. Around here you’ve got to get it right first time. Please train your staff so they know what good service looks like. Hope you make it.

    I live nearby and have been there so many times when the food was good but this time, I didn't even manage to finish my dish. It was really bad. Not sure if they've changed the chef but I am not going back again.

    This pub was highly recommended. It looked great. The servers were friendly. Lots of fun gin drinks and other mixed drinks available. Not too many beers to choose from. Pub was half full at most, but the kitchen had trouble serving the guests in a timely manner. We ordered 2 starters that never came, waited for our mains a long time and the side dish we ordered also never came. Our burgers were bitter and way overcooked, which was a shame, but luckily the fries were good. The pasta and meat pie were good. So I guess it's the luck of the draw as to whether or not you get what you ordered and if the food is good or not.

    It's not the first time i went to London, so i have visited other pubs, bit i can surely assert that Bumpkin is the best. Very kind, gentle service, very very good food, you can even see kitchen (very appreciated, no secrets). Very good beer. Very nice pub. Very reccomended. Sincerily. For whom it's my concern, i will come back here. Thanks to the guys. See you soon.

    I was not impressed with service - our water and coffee arrived one hour after we ordered them. Chopped salad was priced at £16 - I found two small cubes of chicken and avocado, the rest was lettuce and no dressing.

    The food was a huge disappointment! The food was not hot. I had the Sunday roast dinner. The meat had no seasoning and the gravy was watery and tasteless. The veggies were bland and undercooked. The sticky pudding was good though. We were seated at a table where you looked out at a gas station. It also was not very clean. I have never sent a poor review to anyone before, but, I was so disappointed. I planned to come to Bumpkin after learning about it in the U.S.

    We have been regulars at Bumpkin for years but haven’t been for a while. Saturday night was very disappointing. Bumpkin always had a substantial menu with lots of choices and then daily specials. However last night the menu was small with very few choices and no specials at all. I had a chopped salad which was deeply ordinary! The restaurant was less than half full, whereas it used to be jumping on a Saturday night. The staff were slow and lacking in any knowledge about the food. What has happened, Bumpkin?

    We have been regular guests at bumpkin South Kensington over the past 10 years or so. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and the seasonal foods as well as the service. Service has deteriorated significantly (servers don't make it their job to make yourself at home, create any kind of interaction) and would not recommend Bumpkin any longer. Price was too high for the value provided.

    It's a nice, uncomplicated restaurant serving good, honest food. The service is friendly and the food is ok for the price. There are a few issues with presentation, such as the menus being old and dirty which is not a nice look at all. This is a decent restaurant and I have been here 3 times before, but the quality has declined.

    Pretty poor service, rude waiters, bang average food (soggy sweet potato fries) and they stop doing brunch at 12 (on a Sunday? Who the hell gets up before that). Asked for a soda water and lime, got something quite different and was then charged £6 for the privilege. Will not be going back in a hurry and would advise anybody who is reading to do the same.

    We expected a charming Sunday brunch. Instead the food was average, the restaurant lacked personality, and we both left smelling like grease thanks to the open kitchen. The waitress was super lovely, however we felt that her attire was not suitable for a South Kensington restaurant (leather shorts with a crop top, showing skin and midriff). We're both girls in our 30s so not prude by any means - however I'd be reluctant to take my mother there for a Sunday Roast. We will not return to this restaurant.

    Bumpkin is a nice place to have an informal meal. Only negative point is that tables are perhaps a bit close together.
