Open seven days a week, Six Portland Road has five glorious menus; four of which are devoted to food, and split into three courses across two sittings a day. And there’s one big reason to go – it’s all delicious.
Sibling to Parlour (and now Harvest) in Kensal Rise, Six offers simple yet elegant, and incredibly satisfying dining at its best. Think crisp white tablecloths, well-considered menus and an incredible wine list, all brought to you by a team that make answering your every whim seem effortless. But despite the elegant trappings, Six is, at its heart, a relaxed neighbourhood spot, and when the windows are drawn back in summer and the tables spill outside, it feels particularly welcoming and relaxed.
Booking is advised, as the restaurant is popular and also on the small side, seating just 36 – which is a bonus if you’re looking for a romantic meal with loved ones, or a relaxed place to eat with a small group of friends who you actually want to talk to, rather than shout at.
The menu changes throughout the year but there are always à la carte options for lunch and dinner – wood pigeon with Jerusalem artichokes; turbot with fennel and samphire; spring carrot tartlet with whipped goat’s curd; and the like – plus a set lunch menu available Mon-Sat which offers three courses for a surprisingly reasonable price. In fact everything is sensibly priced, particularly so for West London, unless you want to take your own wine for which they’ll charge you 25 quid per bottle as corkage. What if it’s a screw top? Just drink theirs.
On Sundays they do traditional roasts and crumbles, and they do them very well. If you’re feeling a bit delicate or just up for some really delicious comfort food, head over to Six on the seventh day.
It will do you more good than wallowing in bed.
