“You squeeze in on wobbly chairs, next to cramped wobbly tables” at the Gladwin brothers (Shed, Nutbourne) quirky Chelsea venture, serving distinctive, farm-to-table British tapas. Critics (more numerous this year) say “the novelty of eating expensive, tiny bits of food wears off pretty quickly”, but most reporters still applaud its “interesting small dishes concept”.
“Finally a decent restaurant at the heart of the Kings Road!” – this offbeat “organic, farm-to-table” sibling to Notting Hill’s Shed remains an unexpected hit in an area where brainless mediocrity is the prevailing norm. Despite a “cramped space” with “wonky tables and excruciatingly uncomfy seats designed to add to the rustic vibe” the style is “fun” and “there is real originality in many of the tapas-y dishes (even if they are expensive for their small size)”.
What is this “fun and original” sibling to Notting Hill’s Shed doing in the heart of the King’s Road? Its “innovative” British sharing plates can be a bit “microscopic”, but are “superbly executed” with “farm-fresh” flavours, and the “creative”, “barn-like” decor “works well in the crazy L-shaped space”.
On the former site of Choys (RIP), the people behind The Shed in Notting Hill bring this new nose-to-tail restaurant to the environs of Chelsea Old Town Hall.
