Welcome to The Kennington

Awarded BEST NEWCOMER in the Great British Pub Awards 2013 for London & the South East!

We are pleased to let you know that we are open again. Please note that we have new opening hours, so please check on the right hand side of this page. As we must now operate a table service only policy and to allow everyone the opportunity to visit us, bookings will be limited to two hour slots. We strongly advise everyone to book online in advance to avoid disappointment. We are currently NOT taking bookings over the phone.

Due to legal obligations, contact details including name & telephone number will be required from the person making the booking. All bookings allocated online are for the covered (or mostly covered) tables outside. Our picnic benches are not covered and therefore will be allocated on a first come first served basis upon arrival. IMPORTANT: In the event of bad weather, you will not be able to move inside.

The “Rule of Six” still applies & states that there is a limit of up to six people allowed at gatherings indoors only in England. Therefore, we will not be accepting bookings of more than six people. You must remain seated at the table. If you do see friends on another table, we ask you not to go over, mix or socialise with them in any way. This is against the law and the police will have the powers to enforce these limits, including to issue fines (Fixed penalty notices) of £200, doubling for further breaches of up to a maximum of £6400. Fines for those facilitating or organising large groups congregating can be fined up to £10,000.

Social distancing must be maintained at all times. Our Staff & Customer's safety is paramount to us at all times. Please follow all guidance notices and requests from staff members. We will be operating table service only - there will be no service at the bar. Contactless / card payment is requested. Please do not come to the venue if you are feeling unwell or are demonstrating any symptoms of Covid-19. Please ensure that you are adhering to all of the above. A risk assessment has been carried out and this venue is Covid Secure.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Kennington and thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding.

Opened in March 2012, we offer a comfortable and relaxing environment for our local community and businesses, serving delicious food in a contemporary pub environment with good old-fashioned hospitality & a smile! Check out our Light Lunch deal on Thursdays & Fridays!

Although primarily an adult environment, as most pubs are, well behaved children are allowed and we offer a children's menu too. We just ask that the kids leave by 7pm, ‘coz we feel that The Kennington turns into a more adult space after that and us adults can't always be trusted to be on our best behaviour!

We are also proud to be a dog friendly pub, so it goes without saying that well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome!

We look forward to welcoming you to The Kennington very soon!

From your hosts,

Steve, Lee & The Kennington Team
