Best Pubs in Notting Hill

Corker of a film with Julia Roberts aside? Notting Hill is an area alive and kicking thanks to leafy suburban streets, stunning Regency homes and city charm. The best part? It's not shy a great pub or two. Whether you're after a secret beer garden near Portobello or simply settling in for a Sunday roast, these Notting Hill pubs should do the trick when it comes to chill weekends in W11.

Cock and Bottle

One of our top choices when it comes to pubs in Notting Hill, the Cock and Bottle is a true classic. Located on Needham Road, the Westbourne favourite serves up real ales in a welcoming British setting, complete with Sunday roasts on the weekend, and a bit of bunting for that kitsch spirit.

The Elgin

Make like the buzzy, arty Notting Hill crowd and saunter down to the eccentrically cool Elgin. Boasting more than a few bold patterns, enormous mirrors and bountiful artworks, this a creatively friendly place indeed. And as a rather bohemian boozer, naturally live music is a major part of its character. Cider, ales, beers and Bloody Marys jostle for attention.

Union Tavern

A gem of a Notting Hill pub, The Union Tavern has a beautiful canal-side garden where you can watch the boats go by on Regents Canal on a sunny day. They sell delicious, unique dishes and a brilliant range of craft beers and there are plenty of interesting events including beer discussions and a Wednesday's pub quiz with an irresistible £5 burger deal. 

Sun In Splendour

Claimed to be one of the oldest pubs in the area, Sun In Splendour not only celebrates its heritage with a menu of British classics and fun interiors, you'll find a top notch secret courtyard out back, made for drinks when summer shows up in the city.

The Prince Albert

A relaxed neighbourhood pub in Notting Hill, The Prince Albert is one unique place to drink and chow down on street food from Ruby Jean's Burgers, Chicken Society, The Marvellous Pub Grub Co. and Veg Head. Plan on dining alfresco? There's a pretty beer garden with hanging lights, lush greenery and bold wall art awaiting. 

The William IV London - Kensal Green

Fronting historic interiors and a tasty British menu, The William IV London - Kensal Green is a fabulous choice for boozers in Notting Hill. Whether you fancy sipping on a craft beer in their gorgeous inside space, or for a few small plates in the beer garden (with BBQs in the summer), this spot is bound to impress, and even comes with hotel rooms if you're kicking about in Notting Hill for longer than just a pint.
