    Fantastic experience at Hereford Road. Food and service were outstanding. For starters the chicory was wonderful and the leek vinaigreet just worked. Mains great too. Just everything pretty creative and tasty. Very decent prices too. Interesting wine selection, we went for a carage of a delicious Italian wine. Friendly service. Recommended!

    Hereford Road restaurant and its owner/chef Tom provide the best value, service and home cooked style food of any restaurant in Notting Hill. When prices in all the endlessly appearing and disappearing restaurants in W11, WI0 and W8 exceed a monthly mortgage payment, HR remains consistently excellent and affordable.

    We had not been to Hereford Road for a number of years and were very disappointed with our meals .We ordered roast beef and the order arrived very ( too) quickly as I mentioned to my wife .The beef was fatty and lacking volume and mine came with the normal accompaniments but also a small veg which was rock hard and a meaty piece which could not be cut into .I left these items and both my wife and I left a lot of fat on the plate and I mentioned to our waitress that I couldn’t eat the 2 pieces mentioned above .She made no response and just took the plates away .The desserts were ok .Overall it was a very disappointing meal and one we will not repeat

    The quality of food selection and preparation has been maintained over the many years that we have come to Hereford Road. Food is nicely seasoned and prepared, and there is always a good selection. The wines are also well selected. Prices have remained reasonable. This is one of our most favorite London restaurants, and it has never disappointed us.

    This is our favourite neighbourhood restaurant and never disappoints. The focus is on high-quality British meat, fish, poultry and game, simply but expertly cooked. I had potted crab on thick slices of char-grilled toast, followed by pan-fried skate with roast cauliflower and capers. My companion had a smoked mackerel salad followed by venison with purple sprouting broccoli. The wine list is fairly short but interesting. The puddings were very tempting but we didn't feel we could do them justice on this occasion as servings are generous. The owner/head chef, Tom, is one of the nicest (and best) restaurateurs I've ever met. Long may Hereford Road continue.

    Passable, but the food was nothing special. Guinea fowl was leg rather than breast, and didn't fall from the bone. Quite the opposite. Sides of new potatoes and vegetables small, with the latter consisting of a few leaves of cabbage only. Plates were small, to match the servings. Pork chop mustard sauce was watery. Rice pudding was good but, again, a small serving. Not great value for money and wouldn't hurry back.
