Nick Davies left this review about The Serpentine Bar & Kitchen

This is the main bar/restaurant in the park perfectly situated at the east end of the Serpentine. The inside is of no interest, supposedly something to do with "English country living" so vaguely gastro-style but outside is a lakeside terrace extending along to a large beer garden with plenty of seating. High-end contract caterers who think more of themselves than perhaps they should, and high-end bar prices too, well over four quid for the usual keg selection. Service can be slow, as there's usually a queue of tourists trying to explain to the bar staff what they want, with neither party having English as a first language; there is a stand outside serving drinks sometimes. But once you've got your drinks it must be one of the best spots in central London to enjoy an outdoor pint or three on a hot sunny afternoon.
