I went here for my leavers do after being a few times before with it only being a short walk from the hospital, The manager was very accommodating to me and my colleagues even though we were late as work ran over & only half...my party turned up 🥴 The service was very good and we didn’t wait long even though there was a wedding reception upstairs and the downstairs was full also The food was delicious, I had haddock fritters, tripple cooked chips and Mac and cheese and I tasted my friends burger which was so nice All in all a great experience and I will definitely be coming back againMore

Came in on Monday night with my partner, service was excellent and atmosphere was brilliant. Our server Cesar recommended the steak and it was perfectly cooked. He was a brilliant help all night, cannot praise him more or recommend visiting here enough

The Hollywood Arms really knows how to organise a wedding celebration! Our daughter and new son-in-law got married at Chelsea Old Town Hall recently and we chose the The Hollywood Arms for the wedding reception. Their planning from start to finish was absolutely spot on,...with regular communication throughout. Lewis our wedding event planner was fantastic and the Boulevard Bar was set up in the most fantastic way when we arrived for the wedding celebrations. Lewis remained on hand throughout the day and in to the evening. He went beyond the extra mile at every opportunity and nothing was too much trouble for him. Simon the General Manager was also great to work with and made sure the day was just perfect for the newly weds and all their guests. We were welcomed with champagne and gorgeous canapes and then sat down to a 3 course set meal for the wedding breakfast. The food throughout was incredible and the head chef is just amazing. Every guest has fed back how much they enjoyed their meal. Our celebrations went on into the evening and we danced until closing time, which was superb and so much fun. The Boulevard Bar has a fantastic vintage atmosphere with a great vibe. We would highly recommend for your wedding celebration. Thank you Lewis, Simon and all the team at The Hollywood Arms for your 5 Star service and making sure we all had the best day!More

Went there for lunch for our Anniversary and sat at a table with a big comfy sofa. Staff were all really welcoming and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The Hollywood burger was great. So relaxed, we stayed longer for a few more drinks.

I have been in the Hollywood Arms with some friends on the last Saturday night. We did not have a booking and the venue was very busy but Cesar managed to get us a nice table on the bar. The ambience was amazing, good music,...drinks were coming fast to the table and the service provided was spot on. It must be pretty tough for the whole team to get back to no restrictions but it was impossible to notice as it looked like they were doing that for years. Thank you to Cesar and the rest of the team for a lovely Saturday night.More

Five of us popped in on the off chance on a Saturday night and were able to use a table that was waiting for guests to arrive at 9.30pm. As we were there for 7pm and only wanted to stay an hour, there was no...problem at all. The bottle of champagne and white wine were very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of this classy bar/restaurant. Staff were friendly and I would happily visit again as we have in fact over the years. Recommended!More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely

mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
