Cheers all, was mostly wondering if the 'beverage pairing' is worth it? Is it just like a wine flight?

Didn't rate Breddos (Clerkenwell), seems a bit expensive for what it is, the portions just seem miserly. Also the taco's themselves were mushy. Baja fish one tasted great though.

Best treated as a bar that does nice snacks (maybe I just didn't get that's the concept).

Despite living just down from it I’ve never been. Let me know when you’re there I’ll spy you from my window

what are the posh ones?
thanks

Fully booked all weekend unfortunately but had a good lunch at Hantverk and Found in the end. Definitely a town that needs advance bookings.

Can anyone recommend a "British" restaurant/cafe/pub near South Kensington area for Sunday lunch that isn't stuffy or £££, that can cater for a group of 8 people (including 2 kids) and take reservations. Got to play host to relatives who are flying over for a holiday and I'm stumped for ideas.

Closer to High St Ken but https://www.thebuildersarmskensington.co.uk is reasonable, always been a weekday thing so never had the Sunday grub but it's not a bad cruiser for food.
