Square Meal Review of The Shed ?

Devised and run by three brothers – a chef, a restaurateur and a farmer – The Shed (formerly Italian The Ark) packs all sorts of cheery locals into its convivial bar and long, colourful dining room. The decor mixes the urbane and the rustic with an arch eye for detail – think wines from the family vineyard in West Sussex served from a bar fashioned out of a tractor bonnet, wooden tabletops balanced on recycled tin barrels, and a loo that pairs childlike tractor wallpaper with posh soap. Dishes on the daily menu are tapas-sized (although robustly priced), with as much produce as possible sourced from the owners' farm. Top shouts include tender grilled lamb leg with a carapace of crisp fat and a splodge of flavoursome chestnut pesto; miniature baked pumpkin with a creamy almond, leek and garlic filling, and bracingly fresh gurnard with tender cockles and zesty sea purslane – all brought by friendly staff.

  1. Brothers Oliver and Richard Gladwin have lovingly created The Shed Restaurant in Notting Hill, taking over from where the Ark Italian Restaurant once stood on Palace Garden Terrace. Paying homage to their lifestyle in rural Sussex, the ingredients are sourced from their youngest farmer brother in Nutbourne and other local suppliers in Sussex. Otherwise it is foraged for, and the British menu is ever changing depending on what is available. It is classified according to ’mouthfuls’, ‘fast cooking’ and ‘slow cooking’, etc, and designed for sharing with smallish-sized plates...

    Rocket & Squash :: The Shed, Kensington

    Perhaps a good way of describing the Shed restaurant in Kensington, is that it is bit like Polpo for Middle England. You see, this cosy little place near Notting Hill Gate is doing the whole small sharing plate for just about reasonable prices thing, with those plates being served by young, not-bad-looking wait staff, in a room full of reclaimed materials and closely packed tables. Except for vaguely Venetian, read vaguely modern British; for tattooed, just-been-shagged-hair waiters, read respectable plaid shirts and hair firmly tied back; and for NYC themed light fittings and salvaged diner signs, read second hand pitch forks, and wine glasses hanging from the bonnet of a John Deere tractor. It’s a little bit quirky, informal but comfortable; a fun place for a meal...

    HungryinLondon :: THE SHED (Notting Hill)

    The Shed, just around the corner from Notting Hill Tube Station, is, well, a shed. A beautifully restored and well heated one that is, but nevertheless a shed. The wood smell, the warm lighting, the waiters dressed in lumberjack shirts, and the tools on the wall create a rustic, cosy and warm atmosphere which is of course a bit artificial but still incredibly charming. If it wasn’t for the most uncomfortable tables I have possibly ever sat at (turned-around barrels with wood tops and absolutely no space for even my short legs) I would make The Shed my new living room...
