The Hansom Cab is located in the very heart of London on Earls Court Road, Kensington, and is a highly stylish Victorian pub offering a quirky interior and good pub food and drinks. Not far from Kensington High Street,the Hansom Cab is a hidden gem nestled in the capital, in which customers can pop in for a quick pint or two, enjoy a meal, or even use as the location of a party or group booking, since it has a dedicated dining room for this purpose. The food on offer ranges from an a la carte menu, which includes traditional staples like shepherd's pie and Cumberland sausages, to a buffet menu and a Sunday lunch menu. The Hansom Cab prides itself on uncomplicated quality meals using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The Hansom Cab has a long and varied history, as befits a Victorian building set in the heart of the capital. The Hansom Cab refers to the replacement for the Hackney Carriage as a vehicle, which would later become the taxi cab, and so the interior walls are adorned with artwork from 19th century Kensington. Inside there is a large open fireplace to warm up the guests on cold days, and outside is a pavement area with tables for dining in the summer months. The Hansom Cab retains an old world charm not seen in many of the chain pubs that grace high streets across the country, and has a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere in which to enjoy family dining and nights out.
