English Restaurant
“THE SHED The Shed in Notting Hill first opened in 2012 by three brothers- a Chef, a Farmer and a Restaurateur, to bring slice of the Sussex Countryside to West London. The shabby chic interior, delicious, creative cooking and vibrant atmosphere has made the Shed a huge success among locals and visitors ever since. Their menu champion’s local and wild British seasonal produce with the ethos of what grows together, goes together. They use all things wild, foraged, and locally grown including sustainable livestock from the Gladwin’s own family farm, presenting exciting small plates to share and enjoy individually.”

Breakfast Spot
“Hip brunch spot around the corner from the Hillsgate pub. They don’t take reservations and you may have to wait 15-30 minutes for a table for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays – best to go before 11am. It’s a cosy little cafe that does a lot of egg offerings, but there are also a couple of non egg dishes. Good food and atmosphere.”
