Dating back over 150 years, the Mitre Lancaster Gate remain one of the oldest pubs in the Notting Hill area. Elegantly decorated and immediately immersing guests into a wonderful world of quaint knick-knacks and characterful antiques, the pub has done well to hold onto many of its original Victorian features. As with every good traditional pub, the team behind this venue have worked hard to present West London's hungry crowds with an impressive line-up of comfort foods, including traditional ale-battered fish & chips, succulent roast dinners and amazing steaks. And of course, we mustn't forget the brilliant range of craft beers and real ales on tap at the idyllic bar.
With such a cool proximity to Portobello Road, it's no wonder that the Duke of Wellington is one of the most favoured pubs in Notting Hill. Not only can you snag favourites such as beer battered fish and chips over dinner, there's a roster of ales and draught pints not to be missed.
The Commander Porterhouse and Oyster Pub is a wonderful Notting Hill Pub ideal for a quiet drink in the day or something a little more lively by night. They serve amazing cocktails and really great food, specialising in oysters. But if it's ust a swift int you're after that's no problem, just make sure it's a Pilsner Urquell!
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. It's all rather brilliant really.
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. At this beautiful Notting Hill pub 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.

The Churchill Arms is an award winning warm and cosy pub on Kensington Church Street. Baskets of flowers hang outside the pub making it a truly beautiful place to enjoy a cold beer in the summer. The food on offer is Thai but you can also enjoy great British classics and Sunday roasts. The pub also organises regular events so be sure to check in for something different.
Portobello Gold is part traditional pub, part hotel, part restaurant - a very interesting and quirky venue right on Portobello Road. It has a stunning tropical conservatory with sliding glass roof so it's perfect for enjoying a quiet pint in the summer. This fun Notting Hill pub is also home to live music nights, a bar come restaurant and an affordable night out.
The Earl of Lonsdale offers some of the most reasonably priced drinks in Notting Hill. Not quite a gastro pub, it offers a good selection of traditional pub grub alongside real ales and beers. There's also a large patioed garden area, perfect for enjoying an ice cold pint in the summer.
