Sunday Lunch
Casual
Situated snugly on leafy Holland Park Avenue, The Mitre provides a warm welcome for locals and visitors to London alike. Our menu is based on seasonal British dishes with global influences and is complimented by a comprehensive list of fine wines, a wide range of cask ales and a small, but perfectly formed, cocktail list. Lying neatly between Holland Park and Notting Hill tube stations we are well positioned for easy access to the West End as well as being ideally placed as a stop off point to or from the world famous Portobello Market

Having come here a few times, I now know it's definitely at its best when it's quieter. My last visit was extremely noisy and we waited about 45 mins for food - none of which was complicated but just brunch. My mum came another time recently when it was busy and also had an even longer wait for food so clearly they need more staff in the kitchen or someone to manage the kitchen better when it's busy.

However, it's good value with an nice ambiance and we had great service from a friendly, unflappable French waitress. The other thing I like about this place is the fact they are dog-friendly.

The Mitre
Responded on 14 January 2020

Hi Alix, Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to hear you love the service, but I'm disappointed to hear that the wait for food hasn't been acceptable on two separate occasions. I'll bring this up with our head chef so we can ensure it isn't the case going forward. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards, John.

We were meeting with relatives we’d never met before so there was lots to talk about. We arrived half an hour early and were immediately seated. The staff allowed us to stay for 3.5 hours, when we were ready to leave. They never rushed us and we had a lovely time.

The food was delicious, very nicely cooked. It was busy with lots of kids and a dog with a piercing back contributing occasionally. Service was OK but I think they were busier than they had anticipated and so a couple of times we needed to nudge them. Overall we were happy though and will be back.

I organised my birthday party at The Mitre. The customer service was lovely and my group of 9 guests really enjoyed the venue, Christmas decor and the food. Only on one occasion we had to grab the attention of the waiting staff, so we all could order the main course, but as soon as the waiting staff arrived they were really nice and apologetic that they didn’t realise all guests have arrived already. - We were supposed to be 10 people. All in all I would love to give this experience a five star. Thank you.

Had roast dinner - meat was delicious and very well cooked, as were vegetables. Would have been better with more gravy, Yorkshire pudding was cold. Was not the friendliest place but not rude either. Service was efficient. Probably won’t go back given the price I would expect everything to be on point.

The Mitre
Responded on 28 November 2019

Hi, Thanks so much for your review. I'm sorry to hear you didn't have the best time, as we'd also expect everything to be on point. We do offer unlimited gravy on request with roasts. Your waiter should have checked how everything was and brought more gravy if you asked for it, so apologies that that didn't happen. I hope you come back again in the future and give us another chance. Kind regards, John.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your burger. Our burgers are made by our butchers at Mount Grace farm in Yorkshire, who also provide our steaks.

The food was first class as was the service. It was our first visit and will not be our last when we are next in the area.

Noise was a little on the high side and although it is nice to see dogs are allowed, they did bark a few times so was a little annoying as could not hear conversation.

Keep up the good work.

Great position very close to Holland Park and with several seats outside. We enjoyed a Sunday dinner with the kids and another family when this restau-pub was not crowded, nor did we suffer from the lack of the proverbial roast - lunch must have been busy instead - thanks to an excellent monkfish and to succulent rib eye steaks. Interesting combination of flavours in the vegan salads. Service not impeccable but a lot of effort to accomodate very diverse orders and requests for information. Maybe the initial presentation might have focused on the great corner table and on the good though not numerous dishes, than on what was no longer available. It was a lovely evening.

We always come to the Mitre for Sunday Roast now that we lived up the street. the only problem is that you need to book in advance for sunday; and we always book last minute! luckily today when we called they said they have no table until 3 pm. But just as i was browsing in open table other pubs available nearby; my husband said check again there is availability online at 12.30’pm. So we did booked it and got there on time.
