Opened in October 2007 and occupying a site that was once a Victorian butcher’s shop, Hereford Road offers simple yet innovative British cooking.

Tom Pemberton, formerly head chef of St. John Bread and Wine, uses the best nationally sourced, seasonal produce, placing the provenance of meat, fish and vegetables at the centre of the endeavour.

Hereford Road aims to provide a genuine neighbourhood restaurant in residential Notting Hill Gate. It is also be worth a journey for people who value excellent food. Friendly, informed staff introduce the daily changing menu that champions well sourced British food at reasonable prices.

Hereford Road is a modern take on a traditional French bistro: simple food but cooked with love, served with a personal touch, in stylish but utterly unpretentious surroundings.

First visit. Booked the restaurant based on online and locals recommendations and was not disappointed.
Friendly, cosy atmosphere even in our C19 dominated world. Service was efficient and friendly.
Potted shrimp was the best I’d ever had and the lemon sole was cooked perfectly.
My guest was equally impressed.
Will be returning

Best restaurant in W2! Outstanding food, adequately priced - in fact, their lunch deal is a steal! Would hate to see that gem go in this terrible Corona storm... keep up the good work!

Our favourite neighbourhood restaurant, still surprising and delighting with its comforting mix of fresh meat and fish dishes cooked simply and well that do not break the banks with a great selection of organic wines.

Incredibly great value at this neighborhood gem. Despite living about 10 min walk from Hereford road for the past 5 years, only now I finally got to check it out and was blown away. The food is fantastic and really great value.

this is a hidden gem. A friend recommended it, we had walked by during covid times and it didn't look like anything special, but there is a back room that is bright, contemporary, and lovely for dinner. The service was spectacular and the food delicious. We will be back.

Decor a little plain at the rear of the restaurant but booths are a welcome feature at the moment. Not much atmosphere but on a Monday night, and with restrictions in force, this was hardly surprising. The duck leg and the guinea fowl were both tasty, as was the birthday panna cotta which came with a candle! Service very pleasant. Would go again.

I always enjoy this restaurant, the food is always good. The staff are friendly and helpful. We both chose potted crab which was delicious and pork chops cooked to perfection. It was my birthday and they kindly gave us a glass of champagne. All lovely. Thank you.

Extremely disappointed with the recommended off-menu main course. Both fish dishes were out of stock. We ended up with really terribly fried fish and a few scraps of cold vegetables, and charged the same price as a regular main course.

We had gone out for a special night and left very disappointed. Seriously let down.
