What Insiders Are Saying
Hereford Road looks modern, but the food is traditional British. And despite being in Notting Hill, it’s very reasonably priced.
A thoroughly enjoyable meal, with excellent relaxed service, delicious well-cooked food from an imaginative menu that reflects the best of British cuisine. I am looking forward to returning soon!
This restaurant is absolutely amazing. Quality of the ingredients and cooking is outstanding and we simply love going there. Service always great, a fabulous food experience and just gives you a great feeling to eat there. We have never had a bad experience, and we go very often!
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere. This is now high on my list of favourite restaurants. I can’t wait to go back.
Lovely simple straight forward tasty food. And v friendly service
Our evening was absolutely wonderful, we shared all of the small plates and a bottle of the exquisite Barbera between the three of us and had a delightful experience at the Hereford Road Restaurant. Everything was impeccable.
Our second trip to Hereford Road (on two trips to London), and we agreed it was about the best restaurant we had visited. Food was very good, service was fine. Prices are a little high (well, more than a little), but the overall experience made it worthwhile. We will certainly go there again on our next visit to London.
So is this review.
We enjoyed a delightful evening at Hereford Road. We have visited a number of times over the past few years and always enjoy good food, value simple, classic dishes: no foams or fuss.
This was not a restaurant I'd been to before, but it is situated in the quiet and leafy area behind Notting Hill, an area with a lovely ambiance. There were tables outside which were full on a warm evening. Inside the atmosphere was slightly uncharismatic but we ate early. The menu was very interesting and it was hard to choose from several dishes. In the end we opted for two starters each and a shared pud. All were absolutely fantastic and plenty big enough. I'd certainly go back and would highly recommend it.
Had a great meal with wonderful service. Very usually dishes on the menu.
Was a lovely neighborhood restaurant. Great service and delicious food!
Food was okay, service was unfriendly and subpar
Delicious food, especially the desserts.
We always recommend this restaurant! Fabulous ingredients fabulous food delicious deserts. We go back again and again, it never fails. One of our top favourite restaurants in london
Actually picked this restaurant as I wanted a more local place with interesting food.
That is what we got.
My son had the rabbit which truly was falling off the bone it was so tender.
We enjoyed the knowledge of the server and that everyone cared about the food.
As good as ever. Going back to our favourite local restaurant was an absolute pleasure. Honest, robust British food at its best. Superb ingredients and a very deft hand in the kitchen.
The food was great. Everything so delicious . Service a little slow but it did not really matter .
Nice neighborhood restaurant when you need something a bit more fancy.
Really lovely evening here. Food was great and can't fault the service. Highly recommended.
Randomly chosen after an afternoon at the Design Museum - Kubrick, but that’s a different review- what a great find Hereford Road is.. relaxed, casual.. but with great attentive staff and a brilliant menu- Thank you to the chef...for the best kidneys for a long long time... great value we will come again soon.. honest
Consistently delicious food in an easy, unfussy atmosphere. Great servers.
Great British food, will definitely recommend to others.
One of my favorite places to eat in London. Warm staff, comfortable atomosphere, and delicious food.
Good Food - staff a little too reserved and not overly welcoming
Hereford Road is the local restaurant you wished you had at the end of your road. Delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. I can always eat everything on the menu!
I believe it is a perfect local restaurant. Unpretentious and yet the menu is well thought through. The smoke eel was delicious and we went for an Hungarian wine that was interesting. Lovely service and enjoyed the side by side seating "lounge" style.
Had a very pleasant dinner here one Thursday night. The food was excellent - how really tasty British food can be these days - and the service and ambience were good too. I really appreciated the fact that their tables for two are nice and spacious and not lined up in a closely packed row (as in so many restaurants in London these days). Similarly, there was no pressure to hand the table back after a set time. I will definitely go back.
Brilliant lunch, delicious food and lovely service! Also, great value for a set menu, 3 courses for £15.50.
Outstanding Sunday Lunch, but all the food is fabulous and unbelievably priced. The quality of the ingredients bought is tip top and the menu is so very reasonable . We go very often and are never ever disappointed.
The menu is changed daily, how fabulous is that and how indicative of the freshness apart from the imagination.
Simplicity at its very best, its in the top four restaurants in London for us.
The perfect neighbourhood restaurant - good for special occasions, too. Lovely, welcoming staff and delicious, unfussy food, not expensive.
Excellent selection of game dishes, my rabbit was cooked to perfection. Nice wine list too. Very reasonable for the quality of the food. We just moved to Notting Hill, we will definitely be back.
The food was good. The male servers were pretentious and basically ignored us. The ladies that cleared plates and checked waters were very kind and attentive. Would likely not repeat the visit with so many great options in NH.
always a good standard of cooking - maybe the Yorkshire Pudding with the Roast Beef could have been a bit better but the meat itself was quality
Excellent lunch in a very pleasant dining room with an open kitchen
Good, simple food in a professional environment. Service a little flat.
Good value lunch in a slightly off the beaten track location (though the chi-chi end of Westbourne Grove, and Portobello aren't very far away). Reasonable choices and good portion sizes that you often don't get at more 'up-scale' venues offering set lunch deals. Half litre options on wines gives extra choices if you're not planning a full blow-out.
Real and honest food. The manager very professional and overall good service.
We were very pleasantly surprised. When we entered the restaurant it did not look as good as on the website but our experience was great . A bit noisy but then we are in our 70s.
Would certainly recommend to others.
Small portions, pudding cold in the middle and service poor
Simple old-school good cooking...great ingredients and not too much done to them. The food is always a treat and the old-world wine list is a delight. A neighbourhood treasure
