Hereford Road

If you like to eat nose to tail without spending an arm and a leg, Hereford Road in residential Notting Hill is the place for you.

Set up in a former Victorian butcher’s shop, the restaurant looks much more modern than you’d expect, but still makes small nods to that era. The smattering of traditional white brick tiling in juxtaposition with the blood red booth seating certainly leaves you with no confusion about what it is you are about to receive.

Smack its rear and send it in.

As with any good seasonal restaurant, the menu at Hereford Road changes almost daily. But the website seems to stay as up to date as a butcher’s board, so it’s worth checking ahead if you’re not game to turn up and try anything. But fear not – it’s not all food with a face, and there is much more than organs and offal on offer here.

Head Chef Tom Pemberton, formerly in charge of the kitchen at St. John Bread and Wine, wanted to open a dependable and genuine neighbourhood restaurant, promising well-sourced, seasonal British food at reasonable prices in a relaxed environment. And this he has done.

Along with the à la carte (lamb sweetbread with pea shoots & mint; grilled mackerel & kohlrabi; and the like), there’s also a set lunch menu offering two or three courses for less than £20 a head. Very reasonable, considering the quality of the produce and preparation.

No wonder everyone flocks to it.
