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

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.

Hi Pierfra, Thank you for the wonderful review. Sunday lunch time is probably our busiest time of the week, and last Sunday was one of the busiest we've had for a long time. We're all glad you enjoyed the food, and had a great evening. I hope we see you again soon. Kind regards, John.

Staff friendly and helpful but some plates were cold and had to be sent back and beer was flat. Responded well without a fuss although a free beer would have been offered elsewhere.

Hi, Thank you so much for your feedback. I can only apologise about the cold plates. I'll make sure your feedback is passed on to our head chef tomorrow morning so he can investigate the issue. I'm glad you enjoyed the service, and hope you will give us another chance in the near future. Kind regards, John.

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. Food has always been consistent.

My husband and I went to Mitre for our first Sunday roast since moving to London and loved it. The space itself is beautiful and quite spacious. The food was very good for a pub- this is a true Gastro-pub. The wine list is extensive as well. We very much enjoyed the meal and appreciated how dog friendly they are. Will definitely be back!

Nice location for drinking with friends, don’t recommend going for the food... food quality was fine, but no flavor in the chicken dish, bland burger, nicely charred steak, but otherwise nothing special. Service was fine.

The Mitre
Responded on 29 July 2019

Hi Amy, I'm really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your burger or chicken. Our burgers are made from Mount Grace Steak, so are usually full of flavour, and our chicken is one of the most popular dishes on our menu. However I've fed your feedback back to the kitchen as we clearly didn't meet our usual high standards on this occasion. I hope you come and see us again soon so we can show you how good our food usually is. Kind regards, John.

Having had good experiences in the past we took friends from overseas to our local pub. What an embarrassment it proved to be. Service was almost non existent and at best dis-interested. One of the mains, a roast was cold and unappetising. We were not even offered dessert. A return visit is out of the question.

Went for Sunday brunch and although it wasn't our first visit we were happily surprised at how what was always a 'nice' place for brunch has got even better. I had eggs florentine and they were absolutely perfect as were the eggs Royale a companion ordered. Toast was served quickly, plenty of butter and preserves with it, and the full English was beautifully served and really tasty. Staff were attentive and helpful, choices of coffee and teas as well as vegetarian options on the menu. Four of us ate plenty, two had two drinks each and the bill including service was just £58 - so very reasonable for a Holland Park venue. Great place on a sunny Sunday morning!

My friend was taking late afternoon flight home, so we booked a table for brunch at 10am. It opened at 10 but no one bothered to show us to the table. Took them to take orders good 15 minutes. Breakfast was really disappointing. Requested another coffee which was completely forgotten and did not arrive until we reminded twice. I’m not going back there ever again. I

Excellent food although two of us ordered the main rib-eye option that took 40 minutes to cook. That was OK but when our other guests' steaks came they were ice cold. The server was professional and knowledgable but was overworked and rarely came by to take orders, refresh drinks and bring check.

Came here for a work event on a Thursday evening. The place was half full but service was very slow. We kept having to call for attention for drinks, to order, water, etc. Food was decent but we waited so long between being seated, ordering, and receiving food that it left a bad taste I our mouths.

Arrived for a 9:15pm reservation, made through OpenTable, and was informed “the kitchen closes in 10 minutes... if you can order quickly we can serve you.” Only after our party of 5 was seated were we Informed about the 7 entrees that they had run out of already. We decided to leave. This restaurant should manage the reservation offering so as not to put customers in this position - the host admitted this when we checked in.

Very disappointed after today’s meal. The waiter couldn’t be more ruder. My husband (celiac) was given a card to scan to show GF meals which came back with 0 options. After much frustration he was told he could have a roast without the Yorkshire pudding. He asked for a few more potatoes instead and was told that they won’t be able to substitute the pudding with anything else as it a cheap item on the plate. Really? How much is a half a potato? We then ordered a pint of coke and pint glass came completely topped up with ice, we asked if we could have less ice and were told that this is the industry standard. I have never come across anything like this and we won’t be returning back. Such a disappointing lunch!

Terrible service and food. Used to go regularly and won’t be going back again. One particular waitress (who apparently is the manager) was unbelievably rude. To be fair, one manager (John I believe his name is) sorted it out in the end but by this point, the damage was well and truly done. Good for a drink but nothing more!
