Stables Bar, Names can be deceiving. And that's certainly true of this Kensington hotel bar. Because although it's called The Stables at the Milestone, it's not just a place to pass through on the way to somewhere else. This bar should be your ultimate destination. Set in a Grade II listed building, the beautiful 17th century architecture and extensive drinks menu belies such a modest name. And it's the same for our signature cocktail: The Old Fashioned. Because really, it's anything but. They follow the traditional New Orleans recipe, but they added something special at the start, and a theatrical twist at the end.  

• Rather than whisky straight from the bottle, there has been barrel-aged for 60 days in Canadian maple syrup and vodka. And then there's a final flourish that elevates it from a drink to an experienceyour cocktail is presented in a glass dome filled with shisha smoke, releasing hints of apple and orange when you lift the lid. And they believe that commitment to exceeding expectations is also the secret to a truly great bar. The drink is undoubtedly at the heart of everything. Yet it's the extra touchesfrom enticing surroundings to world-class service that really set it apart. That's The Milestone Stables, and that's The Milestone Old Fashioned.  

The Conservatory, The bright and airy Conservatory, with its chic juxtaposition of sheer black and white, gives you the al fresco ambience with natural light pouring through the glass. With comfortable leather armchairs and sofas it is the perfect place to unwind. Overlooking the herb garden and forming an extension of Stables Bar, it is a relaxed space for drinks, light snacks or a leisurely breakfast. Every day you can enjoy the legendary afternoon tea in this appealing sunlit spot. As the hotel is so close to the Royal Albert Hall, the Conservatory is also a perfect place for pre-theatre drinks or a light meal from the bar menu.  

Afternoon Tea, is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form here at The Milestone. It is a treat in more ways than one - a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches is accompanied by warm freshly baked scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and home- made preserves, as well as a selection of pastries including eclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macaroons. Accompanied by a vast tea menu or perhaps a glass of champagne, enjoy tea at your leisure in fine surroundings and experience the superior service for which The Milestone is renowned. Top tip: Make sure you let them know which treat you liked best and you'll be happy to bring you another, as well as free flowing top-ups of your selected tea or coffee.
