Such a great experience, went there early for drinks before being sat at our table and the ambience was great. Staff were very attentive and friendly, food was great and we'll definitely be back!

Third visit here and, again, had lovely food. I've eaten many a mushroom risotto, but this one was without doubt exceptionally good. Relaxed, and dog friendly.

Very noisy. We we’re 4 people aroubd a tavle and able to hear what the two on the other side of the table said.
As well, we arrived for our booked table 8.30pm and was only served the starters 9.00 and mains 10.15... and the place closed 11.30.. they apologiesed with extra bread, but not fair to wait that long.
Can only recommend this place for Sunday roast or outside eating. The place itself is lovely and good as a pub.

Always a pleasure to eat at the "Laddie" where the food is beautifully prepared and cooked. It's also a great proper pub to go and have a couple of pints with friends or even solo...

I’ve been coming to this restaurant for 5 years. And last Friday was the worst experience by far. The lamb and steak arrived cold (after waiting for an hour for it!). We sent it back, and the steak came back chewy and hard. And they didn’t bother heating the lamb, it was still cold. There was no one to speak to as the waitresses were avoiding the back room entirely. We complained again when someone finally came over 40 min later- and her response was “well what do you want me to do?”. We explained I couldn’t even eat my steak bc it was so rubbery. She just shrugged her shoulders and left us to it.

The bill came, and we asked to speak to the manager. She apologised as they were short staffed and it was a busy night, so we were given a “discount” on inedible steak and cold lamb. We then asked to remove service bc it was so appalling. Hugely disappointing.

The Ladbroke Arms is a great local restaurant. It has retained its pub atmosphere in the front, whilst embracing fine dining. It has no music, which makes it perfect place to sit and converse, so great for business meetings.

Nice environment, friendly staff but some improvement needed when it comes to loģistics. We were served our soup first, then the "waiting beer" and when the soup were almost finished, the wine.

One of our main course was linguine . Quite alright in taste but it wasn't linguine.
The 28 Day Aged rib_eye steak was alright, not fantastic but good. I can't say that I was over enthusiastic that the whole steak was covered with sause... Could have been served seperate, would have improved my experience anyhow.
All in all a very genuine gastro pub with friendly atmosphere but with improvement areas..

It took one and a half hours to get our main course. It's obvious the kitchen cannot handle the volumes. The staff can only say that they had too many large parties. You would expect after such a long wait that your meal be discounted or even comped. In better news the food was good however the art of service is simply missing.

We booked for a Sunday at 7pm by mistake and turned up on the Saturday for a table for 6. It was my mistake. The staff were brilliant and fitted us in. Service and food was wonderful with a great buzzy atmosphere. It was only the third time I have been there but it just gets better every visit! Definitely worth a regular visit going forward.

Splendid evening at The Ladbroke Arms

This charming pub set in a gorgeous residental area of Nottingham Hill is a little gem !

The friendly vibe, jolly atmosphere & amazing attentive staff are a joy to behold.
People from all walks of life, sat chatting, laughing & sipping the wonderful array of quality wines on offer or fine ales, makes this the place to be.
The lovely front terrace with its pretty hanging baskets & "come take a seat & chat a while" benches all add to this oasis of happiness.

Then enter the main event ........the food !

WOW !! this is on a different level , SUBLIME
Every element on each plate, tickles & tantalis the tastbuds & takes you on a magical journey of wonder. If you are looking for a fine dinning experience with a twist at a reasonable price then this needs to be your destination.
Everything is freshly prepared & cooked to perfection & presented like a work of art.

Well done to everyone who has a hand in making the Ladbroke Arms our new favourite place to eat in London.
