It's all things British at this charming 1856 Notting Hill gastropub, which overflows with relaxed but discerning Notting Hill locals and Sloanes. Check out the Coronation mugs, Royal wedding trinkets, and Prince Charles and Lady Di memorabilia before sampling some great British bar snacks like pork scratchings, soda bread, or lop-eared sausage rolls. Move through to the simple dark-oak-floored dining room to feast on hearty beef pie with bone marrow poking through the
crust, or wallow in '70s nostalgia with chicken Kiev, mac 'n' cheese, or high-quality smoked-salmon fish cakes with spinach and a coddled egg. There's salted caramel chocolate Rolos or Victoria plum cheesecake for dessert, plus some stonking British farmhouse cheeses, like Shorrock's Bomb, Isle of Avalon, or Leagram blue. Note the bargain £10 weekday lunches.
