“Interesting and reasonably priced seasonal British food, expertly cooked and full of flavour” has underpinned the winning formula for 15 years at this old butcher’s shop in Bayswater from ex-St John chef Tom Pemberton. “This is farm-to-table, but done properly”, “letting the ingredients speak for themselves with flawless cooking that you can watch in the open kitchen” – made to look “deceptively simple” and served in an appropriate “slightly spartan ambience”.

St John alumnus chef Tom Pemberton “never disappoints” with his modern British cooking at the “small but not too noisy” Bayswater neighbourhood restaurant he opened in 2007, in a cleverly converted former butcher’s shop. “Service is efficient, food is excellent and good value” and the “Sunday roasts are brilliant”.

“Inventive food and solid service” make chef Tom Pemberton’s 15-year-old Bayswater venture a particularly strong “favourite local”. Housed in an artfully converted Victorian butcher’s shop, it majors on seasonal British produce. Water damage from a leak in an upstairs flat delayed the reopening after lockdown, but as of September 2021 the restaurant’s Twitter feed was advertising for a new front of house, implying reopening some time soon thereafter. Top Tip: “amazing value set lunch”.

Chef Tom Pemberton’s “consistently excellent neighbourhood resto” in Bayswater has a sharp focus on “very good seasonal British produce, very well cooked”, and is “a bargain for the quality”. “I’ve been eating here since I gate-crashed the opening in 2007, and I’ve never been disappointed”.
