British
Opened in October 2007 and occupying a site that was once a Victorian butcher’s shop, Hereford Road offers simple yet innovative British cooking.

Tom Pemberton, formerly head chef of St. John Bread and Wine, uses the best nationally sourced, seasonal produce, placing the provenance of meat, fish and vegetables at the centre of the endeavour.

Hereford Road aims to provide a genuine neighbourhood restaurant in residential Notting Hill Gate. It is also be worth a journey for people who value excellent food. Friendly, informed staff introduce the daily changing menu that champions well sourced British food at reasonable prices.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

Hereford Road looks modern, but the food is traditional British. And despite being in Notting Hill, it’s very reasonably priced.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

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.

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.

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.
Definitely recommend.

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.

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.

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.
