Quirky, small site, off Notting Hill, that oldies will recall as The Ark (long RIP) and which – like its long-deceased predecessor – doesn’t always inspire much feedback due to its small size and out-of-the-way location. For the last few years it’s been part of the Gladwin Bros’ stable of field-to-fork eateries (Rabbit, Nutbourne) with a similar, faux-rustique theme. More reports, please!

“Lovely food and a great casual atmosphere” draw a buzzy crowd to this quirky, small Notting Hill site (which old-timers recall as The Ark). It was the first of the Gladwin bros’ shabby-chic venues in London (see also Rabbit and Nutbourne) and their Sussex-farm-to-metropolitan-fork concept provides an “interesting English variation on the tapas theme”; on the downside, some find the rustic furniture “very uncomfortable”.

“Unusual, intriguing and packed to the gunnels” – the Gladwin family’s quirky, rustic farm-to-fork outfit just off Notting Hill Gate – on a small site which old-timers still recall as The Ark (long RIP) – can be “noisy”, but the British seasonal tapas is “of good quality” and service is “good-humoured”.

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).
