The Ledbury on Ledbury Road was rated No 14 in the list of the best restaurants in the world in 2016. With two Michelin Stars to its name, the food and wine here are truly sublime. Chef Brett Graham, who opened the Ledbury when he was just 24, constantly innovates with his seasonal British menus; we recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing.
Osteria Basilico and Mediterraneo
If Italian is your thing, try one of these two neighbourhood restaurants on Kensington Park Road. Both offering beautifully cooked Italian comfort food in authentic surroundings; they are the perfect place for a business lunch or meal out with friends.
The Oak on Westbourne Park Road is a lovely old pub, which has been transformed into a restaurant serving excellent Mediterranean classics and delicious wood-fired pizzas. The décor is cosy, traditional and very welcoming. They have a private dining room upstairs, perfect for parties.

There is creativity everywhere here, including at the bar which has its own mixologist. The Fish Shop at Kensington Place is just next door offering the same fresh fish served in the restaurant.
If traditional fish and chips are more your thing then Geales on Farmer Street is a local institution. Not only do they sell some of the best fish and chips in London but they also have a full menu of fishy delights set in a 1930s style restaurant.

The Portobello Star
The Portobello Star on Portobello Road has been serving alcoholic beverages to Londoners since 1740.
