This “reliable” bistro and gin bar near Turnham Green tube has always been “a pleasure to eat in” for 10 years, with “very good cooking, decent wines, and friendly, helpful staff”. It is part of the long-established Ealing-based group whose original venue, Charlotte’s Place, has closed down following a disastrous fire last year (RIP).

“Smart and reliable bistro” (with a cosy, little gin bar) near Turnham Green tube that offers “a menu of crowd-pleasers, cooked with care and a little flair”. Part of the Ealing-based Charlotte’s Place group, it is “far better than expected from a neighbourhood warhorse”.

“An excellent cocktail bar” with “a lovely gin selection” helps set a “friendly and homely” tone at the W4 Charlotte’s – a “buzzy bistro and bar” near Turnham Green Tube, whose “tasty” fare suits an “informal” get-together. In W5, in Ealing’s new Dickens Yard development, its younger sibling is also “a good local venue” popular with business-lunchers and families at weekends. (Both are spin-offs from Charlotte’s Place, also in W5 – see also).

“For excellent casual dining” this “cosy” (tightly packed) Chiswick haunt hits the spot, boosted by a cute bar by the entrance; value-wise, “you get what you’ve paid for and more”. No feedback on its laid-back W5 sibling, but see also Charlotte’s Place W5.
