For Foodies

You’re in for a treat if you have the chance to dine in Kensington. It seems to me that when I advise my guests at the hotel in Kensington that the choice of cuisine is infinite in this area. Whether you’re looking for an international or traditional experience, I can point you in the right direction.

As I’ve said before, I am a great lover of British cuisine.

Now it’s perfectly true that great chunks of our indigenous culinary traditions were driven to the brink of extinction by the insane 1960s-1980s headlong rush towards so-called ‘modern convenience foods’. Fortunately, a few enlightened people recognised the damage this was causing and over more recent times there has been a huge upsurge in the re-discovery of our native ingredients and dining traditions.

Organic Eating Near our Kensington Hotel

Posted by Oliver, on 05 Nov 2014, in For Foodies

I have admitted once or twice to guests at our Kensington Hotel, albeit slightly sheepishly, that for some years I just didn’t “get” organic and biological food.

I was a lot younger when the first notes of concern were raised about certain agricultural practices and I suppose at the time, with the disdain of youth, I assumed it was largely hype and fashion. When I think of how I used to eat in those now long-gone days, I’m pleasantly surprised that I survived! (more…)

Regular guests at our Kensington Hotel may well have noticed, even if they’re perhaps too polite to point it out, the fact that like many men of a certain age I seem to have to work harder to keep my weight under control. (more…)

The question of where to eat seems to be one of the most frequent to pop up among guests staying at the Kensington hotel where I work. There are other recurring enquiries, of course, but it seems as though everybody wants to know about good places to eat. (more…)

I know I say this quite often, but one of the best things about working in a hotel in Kensington is the variety of different lunch options I have each day. Never has the phrase ‘something for everyone’ been better encapsulated than in my borough’s choice of eateries. Whether you fancy a burger, fish and chips, a nice sit-down meal, world cuisine or simply a quick bite from a major-chain franchise, you will find it all in Kensington! (more…)

As I have probably told you, we get all sorts of people passing by the hotel in Kensington where I work. It’s really quite fascinating to discover just how different the human race can be, whether in terms of culture, beliefs or personal tastes – at least I am always enthralled by it! (more…)
