This is an attractive local pub with plenty of rooms and space, a great atmosphere, a lovely beer garden (quite rare in London) and a quirkiness that make it a fine spot for a drink with friends. We came here for food, however, and found the prices to be ridiculously expensive for the bog-standard pub food that they served us.... More

How anyone can give one star to this pub is beyond me. Nice shaded garden. Great choice of beers. Although the waitress did get us the wrong ones. The food is v expensive for what u get. But compared to the awful central London pubs this is wonderful.

The Windsor Castle sits besides Holland Park and enjoys a great location. Inside it's very old and full of character. The garden out the back is cozy and a great place to people watch. Although most of the seats both inside and outside were taken the pub was not full however the service was poor. Bar staff who were unsure... More

Reserving a table for dinner on a Friday evening turned out to be a much more arduous task than it needs to be, even though we called three days before. We did eventually manage to reserve a table, and I am glad we did, as pub was absolutely jam packed when we walked in. The young waitress was polite and... More

Recently renovated,this homely pub fortunately still retains its charm and most of its original interior. Serving the victual needs of Notting Hill , Kensington and world-wide folk , this charming local has the feel and ambience of a typical country pub. Due to the uncertain Summer weather a table was reserved inside. Shortly after sitting down with our drinks, we... More

Don,t go here. Full of typical British public school braying idiots. Appalling service from the woman at the bar who obviously hated the inconvenience of customers.

The Windsor Castle's outdoor patio was crowded on a Thursday night but we were fortunate to find a table inside. We had a great gastro-pub meal, and found an ale and a glass of wine that went well with the food. It was a healthy walk from the Hilton Kensington, with a walk up the hill. We decided to take...

I met my friend Anne here for a drink after work on Thursday. The beer garden was busy, however we managed to find a table to sit at and passed a very enjoyable evening. The drinks were a bit expensive, but it is Nottinghill. The bar has lots of period features and was also very busy. A favourite for a... More

This is a little oasis in otherwise busy tourist saturated area, it is nice to get just off the beaten track and find this lovely little garden at the back. The service was friendly, the charcuterie platter just fine, and not too expensive all in all, I liked it very much. Would love to try for brunch. Inside looks very... More
