Summary

At the posher end of Ladbroke Grove, this smarter-than-usual local is a “comfortable” and “friendly” spot drawing a crowd of regulars – Jeremy Clarkson among them – as well as tourists. It’s “always a great place to go for Sunday lunch, or indeed any other time”, to sample the “small menu of modern British dishes” – even if some find it hard to accept the “high prices for what is gastropub food”.

Summary

“It has the feel of a pub”, but this posh hostelry at the Holland Park end of Ladbroke Grove is very genteel as boozers go. It’s a very consistent all-rounder, with “extremely friendly service” and “a weekly changing menu of fresh and reliable fare” that’s “affordable” too. “Fun, even when crowded”, its welcoming nature includes dog-owners and their pets.

Have you eaten at The Ladbroke Arms?

Owner's description

A charming pub set in a beautiful residential area, close to the hustle and bustle of Notting Hill, yet tucked away in a secret enclave all of its own. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the Ladbroke Arms is something of a destination pub. You will be greeted by an award winning display of hanging-baskets, a pretty terrace, perfect for sunny days and balmy evenings, and a traditional bar, all cared for by a dedicated team of happy and hard-working staff. Whether you fancy a quick drink after work, an evening with friends and family, or a meal guaranteed to leave a great impression, the Ladbroke has a unique quality to make all who visit feel not only special, but eager to return.


In May 2016 The Ladbroke has had a small, well needed refurbishment. We haven’t changed anything drastic, however, have tried to keep the absolute essence of The Ladbroke which has been so popular for decades. Our seating is a little more comfy, our fittings a little newer and we now have space to comfortably cater to larger groups of up to 15. We aren’t changing what we do, just trying to make it better, we hope you feel the same.
