"Restaurant was quiet on a wet Thursday in August, but the food was as good as ever and the service exceptional. It really is one of London's better pubs to eat in."

"The food is excellent and it takes pride in showcasing Northern Irish produce. The value for money is also undeniably fantastic for what is on offer and the service staff are highly efficient, helpful and friendly."

"Would-be trendy bar-restaurant serving nicely cooked (but fairly run-of-the-mill) food in a vibrant atmosphere. Nice cocktails."

The Editors Review
notting hillWith the long weekend looming, and many Londoners (and out-of-towners) heading to the Notting Hill Carnival, we thought we'd round up the area's top cheap eats. Granted when one sets foot in the rarified air of gated gardens and dazzling white terraces the term 'cheap' takes on a different meaning. Nevertheless we have ventured to try and provide a guide to handy pitstops for reasonably priced food and drink for Carnival revellers this weekend. Bring on the posh nosh for less dosh...

 

taqueriaTaqueria W11

Dinner with wine and service: £35

“A far remove from the usual Tex Mex” – this “always buzzing” Notting Hill cantina offers an “interesting” menu majoring in tacos, “admirably complemented” by some “excellent” tequila-based cocktails.

 

rum kitchenThe Rum Kitchen W11

Dinner with wine and service: £28

Bringing Caribbean beach shack food and cocktails to Notting Hill, this 200-seater restaurant makes a great Carnival pitstop. It's open until 12.30 am on Sundays but closed Mondays.

 

gailsGail's Bread W11

Lunch with drinks and service: £27

“For a pastry and to rest your feet”, these “buzzy and friendly” cafés make an excellent standby. On bank hols they stay open an hour later until 8 pm.

 

pixPix W11

Dinner with wine and service: £25

There's no menu or ordering involved at this casual tapas hangout, you simply wander up to the bar and choose the pintxos (snacks served on skewers or pieces of crusty bread) you like the look of. Open every day.

 

eattokyoEat Tokyo W8

Dinner with wine and service: £23

“Spankingly fresh sushi” at “very reasonable prices” wins a major thumbs-up for these busy Japanese outfits; service is “prompt”… but “more focussed on getting the job done than wooing customers!”


 

cow-website-pix-1-1024x685-1The Cow W2

6 oysters and a pint of Guinness: £14

“Fresh-as-you-like seafood, among the west London glitterati” – Tom Conran’s cramped but “friendly” Oirish boozer, on the Bayswater/Notting Hill border, “is a great pub in its own right”, but its Guinness and oysters “make it a pearl!”. They're also hosting a Carnival party.


 

imgresThe Oak W2

Pizzas: £9.50-13.50

“Incredible thin and crispy pizza” – especially at the “really buzzing” Bayswater original – helps make these “airy” and “fun” west London pub-conversions perennially popular hangouts; in W2, there’s a “vibey” bar upstairs too.


 

seven-800x600Lucky Seven Diner W2

Burger and a shake: £10

“Back to the USA in the ’50s” – Tom Conran’s authentic-looking diner, on the fringe of Notting Hill, is a top spot for burger and shakes; “you really do feel like you’re back in America”.

 

boom burgerBoom Burger W10

Burgers: £9

Among the vintage furniture and jewellery stores on Portobello Road sits a little taste of Jamaica. Boom Burger turns out patties and buns with an island twist. Try their Jerk Boom (Jerk chicken, with fried plantain, rocket, mango and pawpaw sauce). Closed Mondays.

 

notting hill chippyNotting Hill Chippy @ Kensington Place W8

Fish & chips: £9

Until 24 September D&D London's Kensington Place will host this seafood-focused pop-up offering a twist on traditional chip shop faves. Try their fish and chips in curry spiced batter, mango chutney and lentil dahl. Walk-ins only. Closed Mondays.

 

lowry bakerLowry & Baker W10

Brunch dishes: £8.50

The Notting Hill set loves this little independent coffee shop and brunch spot – so much so that you may find it almost impossible to get a table this weekend!

 

Lisboa Pâtisserie W10


Snack and coffee: £8


“Great coffee, and perhaps the best pastries in London!” win ongoing acclaim for this “stalwart” Portuguese café in North Kensington; it’s “always busy”.


 

George's Fish Bar W10

Fish & chips: £6

We haven't had much feedback on this Portobello Road chippy but locals (and Jamie Oliver) seem to love it.

 
Falafel King W10

Falafel, pitta and houmous: £6

Also on Portobello Road is this ever-popular purveyor of tasty falafel wraps, great for a quick lunch or food on the go.

 

hummingbHummingbird Bakery W11

Cupcakes from: £2.50

For a sweet treat after your burger or falafel just mosey down Portobello Road to this bustling little bakery where you'll find a dizzying array of cakes, tray bakes and pies.

 



NIFTY NEWCOMERS


We would have liked to include Bone Tea W11 – a pop-up broth (or stock if you prefer) bar serving a variety of different meat and veggie broths, as well as chicken wings and savoury buns – but they are closed this bank holiday weekend.

 

farm girlFarm Girl W11

Breakfast plates: £6-10

Keeping up London's 2015 trend for health food-focused cafés is this new Antipodean joint just north of Portobello Market. Go for breakfast/brunch on their (hopefully) sunny terrace before the carnival frivolity begins. Closed Monday.

 

egg breakEgg Break W8

Plates range from £4-9

A joint project between Soho House and Ennismore (owners of The Hoxton hotel) with – as the name might suggest – a focus on eggs. Closed Monday.
