Description: Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill is a townhouse serving quality British food and inspired cocktails from lunch till late. Our menus update seasonally and our venue is perfect for exploring Baroque, Rococo led design and our Ballroom hosts the best banquets around. Grand fireplaces, glistening chandeliers and exceptional food and drink make us the place to be to take in the sheer decadence of it all.

“Back to the bad old days..”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I thought the practice of double tipping had gone away years ago. We bought a £30 bottle of wine at the bar and was automatically charged about £34 pounds to receive the biottle. The food bill has the service added by default, then when you pay by card they request a tip on top of the service. Bad practice to the point of being illegal.
Not a nice place.

“Experience..”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We ate here last year, I think you should go to look at the interior, it is decandent and the cocktails were good however the food was nothing special, and I would say overpriced. Service was good nothing more.

“Perfect for parties”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Very good for cocktails and the steak is amazing. As you enter you are directed down stairs and it feels like you are inside an old castle. It suits all kinds, from romantic dinners to parties .

Dinner with friends: this place has a great atmosphere! Dining in a cave or dungeon surrounding with good quality food and nice music!
