The only negative thing is the choice of beers. It is average. The staff is professional and not some foreign people barely able to speak english. The other patrons seem to be local and that's what makes it nice. Good for couples and friends. Apparently no football or other sports' games so good for the crowd who does not like... More

We found this place through Tripadvisor and it was highly recommended. We had had previously dined at the Hansom Cab which was excellent but my wife wanted to try something new. We were not disappointed.... The staff were nice and chatty and the food and wine great. Others have said that it's not cheap but I would say that for... More

Beautiful classic pub in Notting Hill serving good drinks at a reasonable price. We only went here for drinks and dessert, so I can't really comment on the food, but I have to say the chocolate and salted caramel tartlet was out of this world, so good! I really liked the dark wooden interior, which made me feel right at... More

This pub is a short stroll from the entrance to the Kensington High Street end of Holland Park. The hanging flowered baskets make for a pleasant exterior to the outside tabled entrance. The staff are welcoming and helpful especially if you sit at one of the outside tables which need a wedge to stop them rocking. The staff have wedges... More

We were 6 all together - 4 of us visiting from the states for my daughter's birthday and 2 British friends. It was pouring rain out on a Saturday night. There was some confusion with our reservation when we called to confirm in the afternoon, although we had earlier received a confirmation email. When we arrived, soaking wet and hungry,... More

Tasty food, brought out quickly - no hanging around which is better than several other local pubs! Excellent wine list, and great advice in choosing. Small issue with a cold Yorkshire pudding was dealt with very swiftly and politely and two fresh ones brought straight to the table. Will definitely return.

Stopped by for a quick lunch. Big bowl of tomato basil soup with bread. Really delicious with 1664 beer. Bar staff were very congenial. Would go back to his place. I guess the lamb is world famous!

Had a weekend in London and booked this to finish off our weekend, Sunday lunch before our journey home. Booked based on recommendations on trip advisor, and we were not disappointed. Got there early, midday and there were a few in. Decided to just have the main course, me beef, sister in law lamb, and hubby fish. We all thoroughly... More
