The latest offering from Sara Adams of The Kensington Square Kitchen, this cosy little neighbourhood eatery behind Kensington’s main drag is the sort of place where you’d imagine stumbling across Hugh Grant’s character in the movie Notting Hill. Comprising just one room, with long windows looking out onto a quiet cobbled street, it serves a tidy mix of seasonal British dishes – assured creations with balanced flavours such as seared mackerel with beetroot and orange salad, slow-roast pork belly with greens, celeriac purée and roasted chicken broth or pan-fried cod with crispy cod cheek, split peas, shrimp tartare sauce and pea shoots. The interior feels smart and very W8 (think warm grey and silver tones, textured wallpaper and hand-blown glass pendant lights), while a grey canopy hangs over the eponymous cobbled terrace. There’s also a zinc-topped bar dispensing classic cocktails and well-chosen wines.
