This “noisy, fun” and “quirky little place” – just off Notting Hill Gate – was the first of the Sussex-based Gladwin brothers’ ‘farm-to-fork’ restaurants to open in the capital, a dozen years ago, and is applauded for the “fresh ingredients” that one might hope for. One reporter feels that it’s “not as good as it was”, but ratings have held up decently over the years.

“A bit of an oddball” – this “quirky little place with a fun atmosphere” off Notting Hill serves a selection of creative dishes using sustainably sourced produce that’s foraged or from the Gladwin family’s farm in Sussex and is one of their better-rated venues. The Gladwins have now opened six restaurants under their ‘Local & Wild’ brand across west and central London, with more expected to follow.

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”.

For 33 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).
