The Anglesea Arms is found on Selwood Terrace in South Kensington, where Charles Dickens once resided at no. 11. The site was originally a market garden and nursery dating back to 1712. The beautiful traditional pub is a Grade 2 listed building, steeped in heritage from the local South Kensington area.

The site today is a vibrant and iconic London venue, popular with locals and tourists alike, sporting a routinely bustling bar area, a beautiful garden terrace, along with a quiet & cosy dining room, all serving food all day out of our AA Rosette awarded kitchen.

We are very happy for people to bring in dogs to the pub, but in our restaurant we run on a strict no dog policy. The Anglesea arms is an over 21’s premises.

    Unfortunately the price didn’t match the quality of some of the food this time, but it is a great menu. It may just have been an off day!

    This is a beautiful pub, located in a fantastic area. The food is good but the attitude makes you uncomfortable. I booked a table at the bar for some drinks and nibbles at 5:00 pm. The bar is terribly loud so it is hard to hold a conversation. The waiters forgot our orders multiple times. I ordered two double gin and tonics and when the first arrived it was barely a single, I ignored it and ordered a second one and I am still wondering if there was any gin in the glass. After about an hour, it was clear that the waiters wanted us out, they repeatedly came to ask if we were done. They took everything away without truly asking if we were done, including our napkins, the final drops of my gin and tonic and some of the unfinished food. Granted, the place was busy and others could have used the table, but why couldn't they tell us from the beginning that we had to leave by a certain time? This is what my booking said: Bar • Table for 3 on Friday, 17 May 2024 at 17:00. You book a table and unless told, you expect to be able to stay as long as you want. So, at the end all I can say is that I was meeting some friends after not seeing them for 6 years, I chose a place that was highly recommended because I truly wanted a pleasant evening and the only conclusion I can draw is that I was annoyed and uncomfortable at the Anglesea Arms ... but, that being said, it was wonderful to see my friends again!

    Hi Jose, Thank you for your time in leaving us a review. I'm sorry for your experience with us. On weekends we get busy in our bar area, if you are looking for quiet experience we would recommend our dining area. For every reservation by policy there is specific time limit depending on size of the party and it can be extended upon request, if not table is then table can be rebooked online by other patrons. We would like to make up for your visit, please drop us an email. Team Anglesea

    Yuk. Ripoff! We ate dinner here and urge you to avoid this restaurant. The worst restaurant in London. The service was poor, taking 40 minutes to get our meal, the wait staff ignored us, and the fish we ordered was by far the worst ever. It was a whole fish, consisting of bones with a thin layer of fish meat that was bland. We had to scrape off a topping put on the fish in order to get to the bones. Top it off with our overpriced entrees and we felt ripped off, especially when a 9.2% service charge was added to the bill.

    Hi KevinW, Thank you for reviewing. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't happy with your visit with us. My sincerest apologies regarding service time on the day. I will investigate with our kitchen regarding the sole. If you'd be happy to, I'd love to hear more detail on your visit so we can improve for next time and invite you back for a much better experience. We hope to see you soon, Team Anglesea

    This was our second visit, and a poorer experience than the first. Service wasn't great. Servers seemed inexperienced and a bit disorganized. Most tables were empty, so I don't think they were overworked. Scallop starter was excellent, fish and chips was very good as usual. Sole was nicely cooked but the sauce was too much and just overwhelmed the fish. Something lighter would work better. Disappointed that nothing with broccoli was available, as that left just a bunch of starchy sides. None of the desserts appealed so didn't try.

    Hi Mootyttt, Thank you for your time leaving us review. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't happy with your visit with us. We will make sure we spend more time with our new starters to make sure our level of service is up to standard. I will work alongside Chef to improve our sole recipe where possible. We would love to invite you back and make up for your recent experience with us. We hope to see you soon, Team Anglesea
