Serpentine Road, Hyde Park, London W2 2UH
My friend and I met for brunch in Hyde Park at the Serpentine Bar and Kitchen. It's such a lovely setting and despite walking by so many times I'd never actually gone in before.
We arrived just before 11am which was a good time as the place was already quite busy. I spotted a newly-vacant table by the window and went to nab it but someone else was there quicker and played the 'we've got a pram so it's easier to sit here' card, which I didn't really get to be honest - there was just as much room at the previous table, but away we went defeated.
There was still room further back and we sat at a small table, furnished with condiments. Although the kitchen is not visible it's still open above the small partition they've put in front which means you do get a lovely whiff of grub when you're waiting to eat... perhaps a tactic to up-sell coffees to brunches. You do have to go and order for yourself and at the prices they charge it seems a little much, service would be nicer. However, we ordered... myself the eggs Florentine and my friend opted for the same without sauce or spinach (no discount for just wanting a buttered muffin and eggs I might add).
food was really nice. The eggs are creamy duck eggs and the Hollandaise
was delicious (although I tried not to have too much as I was watching
the calories). The tea was yummy and I got about three cups from my
teapot but we did have to pay 40p for the hot water (really?!). See the breakfast menu here.

The reason I haven't given this more stars is because, there was zero atmosphere and the service wasn't really up to scratch. The pub is really spacious and I imagine it might be better of an evening. Also, the high benches really aren't good for short people like me, I felt like I was tackling a climbing frame just to get seated.

Go for the mixed kebab and chips and share with a friend. Yum.

The decor of the restaurant is lovely, especially the amazing stone table which is a bit of a centre piece to the room. It's all wood, stone and monochrome. It was quite quiet when we arrived, but got busier through the evening and there were also lots of Italians dining there which I felt was a good sign.
The food was really good and felt quite authentic. The menu offers a lot more than pasta and pizze which a great menu of mains and seafood too, including lobster.
For starter we had: smoked salmon with a yoghurt sauce / Anchovies, buffalo cheese and roasted peppers. My anchovies were delicious, really rich and salty and a great contrast against the creamy mozzarella.
For our second course we had: spaghetti with wild boar ragu / risotto with wild clams and saffron. The portion sizes were just right on our 'Primi' course. My risotto was cooked just right with plenty of flavour.
For our main we had: steak served on a hot brick / filet mignon with creamy pepper sauce / a side of chilli, garlic spinach to share. The quality of the meat was fab, it tore apart with a gentle cut of the knife. The steak on a hot brick was really nicely seasoned.
For dessert we had: Chocolate mousses / dessert of the day which was a duo of almond tarts with chocolate mousse. The chocolate mousse on it's own was a little bitter, but it worked well with the tart I opted for.
All in all a great experience, with good service and at a great price (with the voucher). If I was paying full price I'd probably skip one of the courses, but it's definitely worth a try if you fancy a special meal.

The restaurant has an air of mystery as from the outside there's just a menu board and a buzzer. You go upstairs to the first floor and are then greeted with lovely decor and friendly staff. We had a table by the window (but beware, the view isn't much to look at).
For starters I had the potato and chard soup and my boyfriend had the limoncello cured trout. He won that round as the trout really was delicious, served with a really tasty sauce and beautifully presented. My sauce was yummy too, but there was a bit too much and it was very creamy.
For our mains I had the lamb while my boyfriend opted for the sirloin of beef. The beef is definitely the one to go for if you are hungry as it comes with all the trimmings and some hefty potatoes. My lamb was done perfectly, a little rare in the middle but crispy and sweet on the outside.
Finally for dessert we shared the chocolate brownie and the torta di formaggio which were both very nice. Apart from the carrots being a little underdone I couldn't really fault the food at all. We ended up paying £70 for the two of us, which considering we only had one beer each felt quite a lot for lunch, but the food was lovely and the service was good. A fail-safe option for when you've got a bit of money to spend.

This pub is close to the office which makes it a good option for post-work drinks. What makes it even better is that it doesn’t have the crowds and large groups that other nearby bars have. The food is average and drinks prices what you’d expect, but it’s a cosy pub with plenty of room upstairs if there’s a few of you.

I was surprised that I actually quite liked this place having read quite a few bad reviews. I was there on a Friday night, post-work, and I didn’t have to queue long at the bar which is my usual gripe with these sorts of places.
There wasn’t much seating as most of it was booked out, but they didn’t mind us hanging around. The terrace at the front I imagine would be nice in the summer sun too.
Drink prices seemed about average. Overall, not a mind-blowing night out but pleasant enough.
