“A Place to Dine in a Group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The Bumpkin is a very pleasant place to be. The decor - stripped wooden floors and so on - is typical of a gastro-pub. What makes this location interesting is that it also offers two private dining rooms on the upper floors that are ideal for client entertaining. I attended this restaurant in a party of 18 and was pleased with the service. The menu has all the usual classics: steak, slow-roasted pork, fish dishes and so on so most guests should be able to choose in advance something to their liking .

The room we had had its own bar and dedicated waiter/bar staff, so service was prompt. Whilst the room wasn't large, there was enough space for us without banging elbows.When bringing out each course the waiter had some help, so it was possible for all 18 of us to be served in a few minutes.

The food itself was very decent rather than wonderful. My mushrooms were very good: nicely seasoned and flavourful. But the toast that they sat on was quite a challenge to tackle with an ordinary table knife: it was extremely tough. It was nice when I could get at it! My fish pie had dreamy mash and a well flavoured fish filling with some very plump prawns. The vegetables that came with it were disappointing: I'm not entirely sure what one or two of them were meant to be, something simpler - just peas and carrots perhaps - would have been better. Pudding was Cartmel toffee pudding: utterly delicious and an excellent choice on the part of the restaurant.

The wines served were good value new world. Both the red and white, which were essentially house wines, were perfectly drinkable. I also had a glass of dessert wine that slipped down an absolute treat and tasted of raisins.

This is a good location for a meal - perhaps a Christmas lunch or a place to entertain a number of guests. Apart from the odd vegetables with the main course it was all decently cooked, well served and very enjoyable.

“Excellent dîner- Perfect dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Quel bon restaurant à l'ambiance très sympathique. Nous avons fait un dîner parfait de plats britanniques (saumon fumé, fish and chips, hamburger) bien cuisinés avec d'excellents produits. Nous avons bu un très bon vin du Languedoc. Le service est parfait avec des serveuses sympathiques et aux petits soins. Bref un très bon moment.
What a good restaurant with a very friendly atmosphere.We enjoyed a perfect dinner with typical English dishes (smoked salmon, fish and chips, hamburger) well cooked with fresh products. We drank a very good wine from Languedoc. The service is perfect with friendly and thoughtful waitresses. In short we had a very good time.

“Private party at Bumpkin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is officially my new place to dine, I hired this venue for a 30th birthday celebration, it was amazing, we all ordered from the roast menu which included a starter main and dessert, the events organiser Amanda told us we did not need to order canapés because we would be stuffed can I just say thank goodness we didn't, the portion sizes are amazing, well worth the price, I had pork belly, it was the best I have tasted to be fair. The events organiser Amanda was so helpful in the days leading up to the event and also during the event popping in to see if she could help with anything before she finished her shift, I call that great service as she was so dedicated towards myself and the party guests, also are waiter for the night was Helga he was very helpful and gave a service with a smile what more can one ask for, would I recommend Bumpkin Notting Hill??? Of course I would it was fantastic.

“My new go-to for Notting Hill eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Is it a pub? Is it a restaurant? Who the hell cares, Bumpkin is my new go-to for Notting Hill eats. The prices are decent and the homely wooden interior with contrasting prints and colours gives the place a farmhouse feel.

I had delicious grilled mackeral dish, with potatoes and beetroot. The fish was neither too crispy nor overly fishy – it was deliciously fresh and well seasoned. I had sticky toffee pudding for dessert and instantly died (and went to heaven).

There are disabled toilets on the ground floor at Bumpkin and seating is well spaced for access. Their menu is somewhat busy and the font not very large, however the staff are very much on hand for any assistance that is needed. Bumpkin is situated approximately 10-15 minutes walk from Westbourne Park station.

Great choice.
