Granger & Co

Arguably the most fashionable breakfasts in Notting Hill, with regulars including David Beckham and Harry Enfield!

Clarendon Cross

A great collection of boutique shops, including L Maison, Cowshed, The Cross and Summerill & Bishop.

Beach Blanket Babylon

Great outdoor space for a couple of cocktails and lovely food in the crypt restaurant.


Breakfast doesn't get much better (and healthier...) than this!

Westbourne Gardens

Springtime is beautiful in one of London's many garden squares!

Kitchen & Pantry

The best chai tea and full English breakfasts!

The Grocer on Elgin

Our village grocer owned by Australian Ashley Sumner. Inside freshly prepared food with an Aussie influence - you can even pick up Australian treats like Tim Tams!

The Hummingbird Bakery

Best cupcakes on the planet! The famous Red Velvet was born here. Many other cupcake companies have tried to copy them, but they never come close to Hummingbird's.

The Shed

British food from the farm. Lots of fresh dishes served at lunch and dinner in rustic surroundings.

Cleveland Square Fireworks

Fireworks night at Cleveland Square Gardens is fantastic for W2 residents! A yearly main event and one not to missed. Fireworks mixed in with dance music!

The Notting Hill Bookshop

The famous bookshop that Hugh Grant owns in the movie Notting Hill.

Fez Mangal

A bustling Turkish restaurant close to Ladbroke Grove Underground Station that cooks amazing Turkish BBQ'd meats. Great takeaway or fun with a few friends to eat in, as it's BYOB. If you're feeling hungry, get the special mix. Also the mezze starters are tasty too...actually everything is!

Electric Diner

You can't beat the lemon meringue pie at the Electric Diner on Portobello Road!

L Maison

In the heart of Clarendon Cross, it's always great to stop in here to view the unique furniture and home accessories.


Eggs as many ways as you can imagine... This restaurant is particularly good for brunch and it's close to Notting Hill Underground Station too.

Kimmy HC

"Notting Hill Gate is a wonderful living location. It is peaceful, safe and plenty to do! Portobello Road is just in walking distance, offering plenty of small boutique shops and bar/restaurants that you can't find on the typical high streets. Hyde Park is just off the main street which will always be your weekend relaxation hotspot (if you cant think of anywhere else to go on top of your head)! Its connectivity to central ... more

  1. About Notting Hill Gate

    Notting Hill Gate is one of the main thoroughfares of Notting Hill, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Historically the street was a location for toll gates, from which it derives its modern name. At Ossington Street / Kensington Palace Gardens, the Bayswater Road becomes Notting Hill Gate, continuing westward until it becomes Holland Park Avenue, just before it reaches Ladbroke Grove. Notting Hill Gate is distinct from Notting Hill, although the two are often confused. Notting Hill Gate is home to a variety of stores, restaurants, cafés and estate agents as well as more specialist stores which include rare records and antiques, as well as two historic cinemas as well as also several bars and clubs. Notting Hill Gate is the site of Notting Hill Gate tube station which is on the Central, District and Circle lines. This area is often packed with tourists heading to the nearby Portobello Road market.
