Our Restaurant & Bar On Kensington High Street


Well-to-do west London respectability meets Soho’s louche debauchery at our restaurant & bar in the heart of High Street Kensington.

At Balans Soho Society there is nothing we take more seriously – the correct temperature of every drink & the warmth of every welcome, aside – than the quality of our food. Working with the finest ingredients from some of the very best British suppliers like H. Forman & Son, Fenns of Piccadilly & Jude’s Ice Cream, we prepare everything fresh in our own kitchens. Unlike many of our contemporaries, we’ll not stand for any of that shipping meals in from centralised kitchens nonsense.

Here’s what some of our recent guests kindly said about us on Google:

‘Hidden gem – amazing brunch.’

‘An old favourite. Great food over an extended (boozy!) breakfast, superb friendly service, lovely manager & excellent location & restaurant.’

‘Lovely place, great decor & friendly staff, great choice of food too.’

‘Delicious food & attentive service.’

Bohemian, gregarious, sophisticated & perhaps just a touch eccentric – a place to abandon your plans – Balans is the quintessential Soho experience.
