About: The Hour Glass is a traditional freehouse pub located in SW3, conveniently located for the museums at South Kensington and Harrods in Knightsbridge. Cosy open fires in the winter and sun-trap outside seating in the summer generate a strong ambience. The Hour Glass is very deliberately not a gastropub: it's gravy, not jus. The food it serves is honest, fresh, home-made and classic. Good pub food. The menu changes by the day; fresh meat is sourced from the local butcher, and fresh vegetables are sourced from local markets. Traditional roasts are also served every Sunday lunch. Cask Marque-approved cask conditioned ales are on tap, and there is a short but well-chosen wine list.

This little pub is probably the best place to go to relax and have a nice lunch. Their burgers were amazing and beer was really good. The landlady is an amazing host. I love this place.

I was recently bearing a grudge against this pub because it forced a colleague to leave our party early for being too drunk. The grudge lasted five minutes, for it was then that I saw the guy. WASTED.

Love the Hourglass, great little pub. Just mind how much you drink. :)

A small but perfectly formed pub for lunch in a barren zone. On this visit to the Science Museum, my fifth in so many weeks, I'd almost despaired of finding a decent pub. However the Hour Glass serves several excellently kept real ales in accordance with Casque Mark rules (including not chilling the flavour out of them). I greatly appreciated a freshly made and fluffy tomato omelette ( the accompanying salad was OK but could have been a bit fresher). According to the friendly Antipodean barmaid this independent pub has been run by the same landlady for 22 years. God bless her,

Firstly this is my first review so sorry if I am not up on etiquette. This pub has good service, good food and good beer(sorry I cannot confirm last point but was unable to have alocohol myself at present but my friend did!) Only real poor point was the taped music which made conversation difficult.
