Bumpkin - South Kensington
Visit the website of the Bumpkin restaurant chain and you are greeted with a delightful hand drawn imagining of the two London establishments, backdropped by rolling hills and generating a sense of rural ease and relaxation. The scene is further set by the restaurant chain's tagline - 'For city folk who like a little country living', leaving the visitor in no doubt as to what to expect.
Still, the capacity to surprise and delight in equal measure is one of Bumpkin's main strengths. The chain's two locations - in South Kensington and Notting Hill - could not be more urban yet, even in the bustling heart of London, diners at Bumpkin can enjoy the serenity, the peace, the charm and friendliness long associated with the great British countryside by simply stepping inside.
The food served at Bumpkin is a rich mix of the finest traditional British recipes derived from only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients sourced from local and trusted farmers and suppliers. Having relied on these farmers, breeders and butchers for over four generations, Bumpkin is able to guarantee quality with every meal, and boasts some exceptional dishes, such as the fantastically fresh garden pea and mint soup, Cornish sardines on toast, Staunton black pudding with leek and apple, beer-battered fish with hand cut chips, 28 day Yorkshire rib eye steak, slow-cooked Gressingham duck, and a traditional cow pie that even Desperate Dan would find hard to fault.
The Bumpkin South Kensington branch is famous for its delicious Sunday lunches with all the trimmings and seasonal vegetables, and is also open for lunch and dinner throughout the week, and opens earlier on a Saturday to catch the breakfast and brunch crowd. With a vibrant open plan kitchen, sleek interiors, friendly staff and delicious desserts, beers, wines, ciders and spirits, this is one of the most welcoming and amiable restaurants in the heart of London.
