Bertie's Bar Review

Bertie’s bar is the newly refurbished bar in the Royal Garden Hotel on High Street Kensington.

Any airs of pretentiousness can be left at the door of the five star hotel - this place may look posh with its stylish interior but remains friendly, fairly priced and the service is superb.

We were greeted with a lovely smile from bar manager Luis, who has been there for over thirty years. He is very proud of his intimate bar and is a legend with the regular customers. He knows most of them by name, which gives the place the warmth and friendliness of your local, but in very classy surroundings.

Luis handed us a bubbly glass of champagne and we sank into large comfy chairs. Choose a sofa in a secluded corner or take a stool near the bar to relax and enjoy while the friendly staff provide table service.

The drinks menu seems endless, with traditional cocktails, champagne cocktails and an extensive wine list (including 10 different types of wine by the glass), plus 12 speciality beers and a selection of over 15 malt whiskies.. There are also a number of non-alcoholic cocktails for those who fancy sipping something equally as delicious.

Fashionable 'bar bites' such as sesame coated prawn toast balls, seared chicken satay and a freshly made sushi selection are served until 10.30pm. They are fairly priced at under a tenner each and most dishes are perfectly sized for sharing. We thought the mini sausage and mustard mash was particularly tasty.

My friend was particularly enamoured with the ladies toilet. They look less like a lavatory and more like a girly dressing room, with mirrors a plenty, making it a delight for us females to go 'powder our nose'.

The bar caters for a diverse list of clientele; from celebrity residents to holidaymakers and after work crews, it is a place that welcomes everyone.

Bertie’s is open from 5pm to 11pm Monday till Saturday for the public and until 2am for residents.

“I did not like this place at all. The staff very stuck up, and snobby. One of them had the audacity to say that the drinks were most expensive and that they did not do a happy hour, the nerve, as I was dressed appropriately in a red satin chinese cocktail frock. Well I will be giving this place a miss in future. As for stars!!!! I would sooner look up at the sky!!!!”

“Really nice place. Pretty chilled too despite all the labels on display. For one moment I thought I was at the hospitality lounge at london fashion week. Bar staff unpretentious as is the clientele. In fact apologies from some when they knocked into me. How good is that for London? Bertie's Bar is definitely worth a visit. Prices a bit steep though.”

“A great addition to Kensington's bar scene. The bar is located off the lobby of the Royal Garden Hotel and is superb for people watching - in just an hour we saw several soap and sports stars coming and going! Really wide drinks choice and good unobtrusive service, so nice not queue at the bar and prices were still competitive. Well worth a try and much better than anything else on offer in Kensington.”
