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.
Wonderful set lunch - delicious and excellent value
Makes one proud to be British. Good native ingredients well cooked and presented and deftly served.
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!
Well worth the second visit. About to make the third.
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 !
Always a reminder to come back again as it never fails to please. Sad they had run out of the brains and potatoes though.
Amazing meal and great service. Loved the wine list as well, such good value for money. Would highly recommend!
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.
I loved this place. Absolutely fantastic food and staff!
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!
Love your place always great.
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.
I absolutely love this place. The staff are fantastic and the food is always lovely. I would always prefer to sit at the back. Delicious!
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.
Sum of the parts
Apart from the Sunday roast beef which was tasty, fatty and seasoned.
We had been here in July and we loved it. So we decided to come again on the occasion of another trip to London and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is charming and food is excellent. Strongly recommended!
Best local restaurant with excellent simple food, fantastic service. Highly recommend.
Love this place !!!!
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.
Best meal I had in London
Always wonderful. A neighbourhood restaurant with first class food and service.
I am a great fan of Hereford Road and have been visiting the restaurant for many years. It is one of the rare places where you know you will constantly get excellent food in a great environment. Thank you chef for yet another fabulous meal!
Fantastische eten. Leuke mensen. Alleen kwamen de gangen wat snel achter elkaar.
Maar echt top.
One of the finest restaurants in London. A hidden gem!!
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.
All the food was excellent and extremely good value for money. The partridge with barley and girolles was superb.
Fabulous menu with Terrific food at exceptionally low prices
Good service, quick service as we needed to get to the Ginstitute for their master class
My guests and I wouldn’t hesitate in returning.
Really enjoyed the food
Fantastic food, service & wine
Delicious modern British fare in a lovely Notting Hillish side street. We will definitely return.
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.
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.
Wonderful evening. Great food and fabulous service.
