Frequented by well-heeled West London types, luckily The Westbourne comes with a hearty dose of jovial staff and a warm welcome. Situated in the heart of Notting Hill does mean it’s almost always busy but due to their love of well-loved, eclectic furniture dotted around the place, you can always find a perch. With a great wine list, Belgian beers and particularly scrumptious bar snacks (dive into the pint of prawns with a huge serving of aioli), it’s one for thirsty, fun patrons. You won’t find a boring drinker in the Westbourne.
Lunch and dinner menus change daily and although we hate the term, gastropub was seemingly invented to sum up the Westbourne. Down to earth, hearty food with a modern twist shines through in their pheasant, grilled sea bream and onglet steaks. The chips are phenomenal and the puddings are reliably, finger licking good (their chocolate cake with coffee and cardamon syrup should be ingested regularly to keep seratonin levels high).
