This is a modern British pub with all the quality and style that you would expect in Kensington, coupled with the comfort, delightful look and fine, fresh food that are synonymous with the quintessential Geronimo pub. Perfectly set in the oldest licensed building on Old Brompton Road, The Duke of Clarence was previously more renowned in the area for its brunch, burgers and bonhomie. However, it has now also gained an impressive reputation for the extensive wine list, selected by John Clevely and featuring everything from smooth classic reds to aromatic whites. Alongside a great range of beers, The Duke of Clarence can certainly satisfy the demanding residents of Kensington and beyond. Whether it's to watch the sport of the day or just watch the world pass by through the huge open windows, this is a superb spot for both stylish diners and drinkers.

This is the sort of pub you'd love to have for your local. And you might even put on your list for when you're in Earl's Court, which isn't often.
You could almost call it a clean, well-lit place to drink. Windows all round lend a friendly atmosphere, and an excellent selection of ales (Tribute, Doom Bar, and... oh, something else which I've forgotten) Aspall cider on draught. The food looked...more
Prior to moving to London I tended to stereotype pubs: old carpet, old bar, old men. Now I understand that those pubs are but a subsection of the broader pub community and the Duke of Clarence is definitely a very distant cousin, if related at all.
The Duke of Clarence is an upscale classy joint. How can you tell? Well, for one thing the special last night was a carefully prepared steak...more
Decent pub. Looks nicer than it feels, if that makes sense. I found the staff very rushed and not particularly attentive. It was crowded (and this was on a Wednesday or some not particularly exciting night) and the clientele was a little too snobbish for me.

This was our hang out in London...our home away from home. Such a laid back environment with such a friendly and welcoming staff. Great traditional English dishes such as Shepard's Pie and bread pudding (although we all know England is not exactly known for it's great cuisine). But none the less, if you want to unwind at a unpretentious, neighborhood pub with some good old comfort food and...more
