British
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.

Delectable and interesting take on british food, raised to higher standards. Great service and good suggestions on pairings by the glass.

The food was unusual and different from the average restaurant. Tasty and I particularly enjoyed the warm rice pudding and jam.

It’s simply just great great cooking! Nothing more to say really. Just delicious food made with tip top ingredients. Front of house are fab! We go regularly and I must say, our experience so far has been everything absolutely delish!

Delicious choice of dishes with a good emphasis on game. Simply cooked, but cooked to perfection. Quail starter was succulent and simple; the rabbit main course was fall-apart soft and full of flavour, and the devilled lamb's kidneys were tender and spicy, just wonderful.

We had a very special meal here on Saturday. It was a birthday present for two friends and we couldn’t fault anything. I really loved the understated decor complemented by excellent fresh cuisine. They were super knowledgeable about all the wines available. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant and will return very soon!

I have eaten there before, which is why I booked lunch for my brothers 70th birthday with confidence that he would enjoy, and he did - we all did !

My favourite place to eat in W8 - never fails to impress. There is nowhere else like it now that Kensington Place and Cafe Anglais have long gone...seasonal quality modern British menu with a twist.

It was great, food delicious and staff charming. I had called beforehand to ask for a quiet table and they were most obliging. My friends and I all thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you.

Noise level was quite high.... the acoustics could be reviewed or am i getting too old?
The meal was fab.
The issue was when we went to order a second bottle of the lovely Rioja, it was sold out! so we had to switch wine which of course was not as good!

The restaurant is very cool designed and the ambiance is nice. However the service is very straightforward and not friendly, the food is unique so probably not for everybody’s taste. We had a nice evening even if we are not 100% satisfied, we would give it another try as the menu changes.

Excellent food and great recommendations on food and wine by Rachele. Noise level is high, especially on the round tables in the middle of the room.

Service was inattentive , we waited 40 min for our entrees . They all came out separately. The quality of the food ingredients was good just not a lot of flavor or creative cooking.

Apart from the Sunday roast beef which was tasty, fatty and seasoned.

I read about this restaurant in a travel book by Rick Steves. It was everything promised! The menu was sophisticated, interesting and a very good value for the level of the food. Worth the walk! Nice to be in a neighborhood.

The quality of food has remained high for years. There is sufficient choice and the wine selections are good. We had two new entrees and mains this time, and they are each excellent. This remains a favorite restaurant for us.

Such a charming neighbourhood restaurant combining the pluses of that, with solid, ambitious cooking. Lovely people both in the kitchen and outside. And the pudding list makes me think of school but in the best way possible!

Wobbly table which the server did nothing about when I told her . Just said ‘it’s the floor not the table’
Hake main course cooked well. Didn’t like the accompanying vegetable with it though.
Starter - ok
Wine by the glass- seems some strange options . I wanted a Chardonnay or Sauvignon blanc but nothing available .
Had a riesling which wasn’t cold enough .
Woman on table opposite me - constant ‘pinging’ of her phone throughout the whole meal. Are the servers not trained to say something when other diners are disturbed
by their other people’s constant phones ?
Server didn’t say goodbye when I left.
Disappointing experience

Assured, innovative and consistent - what we have come to expect over the years since we first ate here. HF rarely disappoints, and combined with an interesting and sensibly priced wine list, it is our London restaurant of choice.
