Geale's, nestled between the über-wealthy Kensington (W8) and Notting Hill (W11) have, to put it briefly, devised a magic forumula which should be studied by economically-minded sociologists: “How to turn simple, average fish and chips with mediocre side dishes and a few bottles of wine for four persons into a £300 meal?”. It also spells out as “Arrogance + Ignorance X Location”. The only (remotely) justifiable part of the equation is “Location”, as yes it is handily located off Notting Hill Gate, but the rest is simply shocking. These are the kind of restaurants which give Lonodon gastronomy a bad name among visitors. Geale's was a Kensington stalwart until it was overhauled and then hyped-up. It now sports minimalist black-and-white decor and has lost all of its original charm. What a pity. And if one is after a good (and be it pricey) meal in this neck of the woods there are plenty of options. To avoid. No, better: run!
