A landmark on Ken Church Street for generations (it claims Sir Winston’s grandparents as regulars in the 1800s) – one feature of this flower-bedecked pub is a dining annex that’s served “generous portions of delicious Thai curry at surprisingly low prices” for the best part of 30 years. “Dining among a mass of indoor plants and knick-knacks completes the experience”.

“Top-value Thai food with personality – love it!”. This slightly “bonkers” pub near Notting Hill Gate looks normal enough, until you discover its “quirky butterfly conservatory at the rear”: “a hustling and bustling” venue serving “tasty”, spicy scoff at prices that are “amazingly low for the area”. “Still a winner” after over thirty years’ service: in particular it’s “a great choice for eating with friends”.

“Stunningly good-value, cheap ’n’ cheerful” Thai food is served in “portions which might prove a challenge even for the very hungry” at this one-of-a-kind boozer near Notting Hill Gate. The whole set-up can seem “as mad as a box of frogs” but is “always a fun night out” – you eat in a “a cute, butterfly garden conservatory at the back of a totally normal Irish pub”. “You only get an hour at the table but service is very fast.”

For 31 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).
