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”.

“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.

This attractive and atmospheric “gourmet pub”, at the Holland Park end of Ladbroke Grove, “definitely requires a reservation, especially on weekends”, but it’s “worth the aggravation” for the “delicious food” and “great local beer”. Top Tip – “the real draw is the terrace on a nice day”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
