Featured Kensington Restaurant
Home to the very best British and International cuisines, Cast Iron Bar & Grill is centred around a huge feature glass wine rack. The busy restaurant sits next to an eight story glass atrium which floods the seating area with light. By contrast, the clubby bar area is a wood panelled gem with comfortable leather sofas and warm occasional lighting. Open from morning until late, the Cast Iron Bar & Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The menu boasts a wide selection of 100% British steaks grilled to perfection, deluxe burgers, succulent ribs, slow-cooked shoulder of lamb, charcuterie boards, delicious sharing plates and mouth-watering desserts perfectly matched with great wines. The finest, carefully sourced British ingredients, are simply cooked and are served alongside a fine selection of wines, craft beers and bespoke cocktails.
