Summary

The Notting Hill site that was formerly Bumpkin (RIP) has had a change of fortune: Emily Roux (yes, daughter of Michel) and her husband Diego Ferrari (currently head chef at Le Gavroche) have taken it over with a view to creating this October 2018 newcomer with its own, er, character (geddit!). A blend of French and Italian cuisines is promised, but the style is to be simple and seasonal rather than ‘fayne dayning’.

For 28 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

"Tasty food born out of 2 great cuisines - French and Italian. Lovely wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Excellent presentation. Friendly, helpful service. Delightful, quirky touches everywhere - cutlery, crockery, furnishings, paintings on the walls. Caractere is my favourite restaurant."
