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.

Rock solid - my local. Food consistently good. Excellent open atmosphere - light in day and cozy at night. Specials vary and are good. Good beers on tap. The pub quiz is long gone these days (maybe 3-4 years ago they did away with it). OK for dining alone. Excellent for lunch too. If it is really busy - try across the street at the Drayton Arms. Lamb burger is one of my favorites.more

When in Rome do as the Romans do (or at least they used to do...) so I went with fish and chips & pint of Doombar bitter for a total sum of £16.
Beer was fine, the main dish was also fine. Not the best fish & chips I've had but...more
This was my local for a good 1+ year. I love it. It's cozy when the weather is crappy and I prefer the food to Anglesea Arms (down the street).
It can get packed during games.more
When I initially walked in, this place seemed great. Nicer pub, lots of cool wooden features (I'm a sucker for giant unfinished solid wood tables). Alas, I stepped up to the bar and soon I was singing a different tune.
First, the placement of the tables relative to the bar is a bit silly considering it's a pub that gets very busy quickly. I had to maneuver in between tables and finally...more
This is my local. And there's good reason. Aside from the fact it's not far from my flat.
Solid food. Burgers are always good. My lamb shank steak (strange right) was great the other night but almost over-shadowed by the really well done side of lentils with sweet potatoes and tomatoes. The best are the glazed sausages to start. My favorite.
House bottles of red and white are a good deal and...more
