Review of 'Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers'

We sort of stumbled across Sticky Fingers when we were walking around the Kensington area located, as it is, just off the Kensington High Street. “What is that place over there, looks interesting?” “Hum, an American-style restaurant, let's give that a try.”

Looking at the menu, it is full of typical American fare with hamburgers (£8.95 to £13.75), sandwiches (£8.95 to £12.95) along with the bigger main dishes of assorted types of ribs (£14.95) and peri-peri chicken (£13.95). Anything you can think of as far as the typical American dinner can pretty much be found here. In our case we were not interested in a more formal “dinner” so we limited ourselves to appetisers of onion rings (£2.95) and buffalo wings (large for £9.45). The rings were as they should be - Good onion flavour with a rather odd garlic sauce on the side. We had half-and-half wings with hot and normal spice which were wonderfully plump and tasty (the blue cheese dipping sauce, though mild as these things go, I gave a miss).

One of the main reasons you might want to visit Sticky Fingers is for the rock memorabilia on the walls - Which consists of posters, framed records, pictures, framed guitars, music and others. Of course, the music played throughout is of the same period as the music - The 60s. There does seem to be a bit of a bias in the material towards the Rolling Stones but, hey…When we visited in the middle of a Saturday afternoon it was a bit noisy with a large number of families with smaller children. It is that type of restaurant though…Cosy and friendly. The service is quite laid back but perfectly adequate.

We will have to return to try the main courses. The ribs in particular look quite tasty…And seem to be particularly well known here. This is not fine dining by any stretch. But it is good, honest, fried American food.
