“A long-time local favourite” celebrating its 25th anniversary this year: Tom Conran’s Irish-themed gastroboozer on the Notting Hill-Bayswater border is “always relaxed”, with “reliably good food” (both in the bustling downstairs bar, and the cute, cramped first floor). Despite its name, the focus is on seafood (oysters washed down with a pint o’ Guinness being the classic choice here).

“Exceptional seafood” is the gastronomic draw at Tom Conran’s “really relaxed and friendly” Irish pub in the Notting Hill-Bayswater hinterland. “The fish stew is highly recommended”, alongside the oysters and Guinness.

“A bit rough around the edges but a proper boozer” – Tom Conran’s “busy” Irish pub in Bayswater makes “a refreshing change from most glammed-up pubs”, and provides “simple seafood cooked well, great Guinness and a buzzing atmosphere”: “I always have a whole crab and spend hours eating it!”
