Cambio De Tercio
Established in 1995, this small Spanish eatery has really dazzled Old Brompton Road with wonderful places to enjoy authentic Spanish food and grown to include a taperia, sherry bar and gin bar. The original restaurant is still considered the go-to spot in Earl’s Court and an ideal spot for a midweek lunch or post-work dinner.
Within walking distance of Earl’s Court underground station, Bandol’s Provençale and Niçoise sharing plates focus on the French Riviera for inspiration. A sleek space for a family meal or catching up with friends.
Earl’s Court Road’s Dolci Café is a pastel-hued wonder in a decidedly urban spot. Florals cover the walls, and the drinks, juices and smoothies only add to the colour chart. Instagrammable and pleasingly cheering, the food and drinks here happily match the gorgeous decor.
Many Earl’s Court pubs and bars double as venues for eating and entertainment. Evenings that start as a quick post-work drink can quickly become a night in a cocktail lounge or long, leisurely pints in a beer garden.
There’s little this Hollywood Road pub doesn’t do well. Bar, restaurant and pub, it doubles as a place for after work drinks and an essential venue for a Sunday roast. Able to host weddings, events and parties, the Hollywood Arms also makes a welcoming nook to enjoy a quiet drink after a day exploring the local sights.
The Lillie Langtry
Part of the Hippo Inns’ stable, The Lillie Langtry still manages to retain an independent spirit that sets it apart from other London pubs. The luxe Victorian cocktail lounge is a high point - as is the art on the walls, while the rear gardens do add a certain something to summer evenings.
By day, Over Under serves some of the best coffee in London. At night, the space undergoes a truly amazing transformation to bring top-notch cocktails to its ever-growing list of loyal customers.

Since being chosen as the spot for Bob Dylan to make his debut performance, the Troubadour has been championing grass roots music. The list of famous faces to have passed through here is impressive, whilst the fact the venue doubles as a pub and restaurant only adds to this historic space’s appeal.
Evans and Peel Detective Agency
If you like a little interactive theatre with your drinks, a night at the Evans and Peel Detective Agency blends speakeasy stylings with a little live action role play. Though half of the detective work is actually finding the bar on the Earl’s Court Road, the real reward is the innovative cocktail menu.
This petite playhouse may only have seating room for an audience of 50, but it has hosted some of London’s most compelling dramas. A leading light in the world of fringe theatre, the Finborough Theatre sits above the Finborough Arms, a handy venue for a post-play drink.
Despite the relatively small catchment area, Earl’s Court is still home to some wonderful green spaces. Walks through the trees and gardens are a must, though there’s also a chance to take in some art in the area’s galleries.
For an alternative green space in Earl’s Court, Brompton Cemetery is a park that's full of history. While it may seem a sombre space for a stroll, its architectural restoration, plus new visitor centre and café, makes for a unique place to enjoy a coffee with friends.
