This egg-focused, brunch-heavy restaurant comes from Ennismore (the same people behind the Hoxton hotels). There are all types of eggs - in burgers, omelettes, salads and even simple boiled eggs and soldiers if that's what you fancy.
Soho House's Notting Hill outfit consists of an Electric House members club, a fancy Electric Cinema (London’s oldest cinema) and the Electric Diner. The Diner's all day menu features steaks, sandwiches, all-day breakfasts and much more comfort food.

Notting Hill's food credentials are boosted by a restaurant and bar team that comes via the River Cafe and Soho House to take what was once a pub. They're serving up sharing plates, and food cooked over fire or in a wood-burning oven, all across four floors.
For seasonal British food done brilliantly you can't go wrong with Hereford Road where the former head chef of St. John Bread and Wine, Tom Pemberton, is in charge of the kitchen.

One of the few London restaurants to make it as far as the top 10 of the World's 50 Best, this is often cited to us by fellow foodies as their favourite place in town.

This was the first restaurant to be opened by The Gladwin brothers, who are each a farmer, a chef and a restaurateur. Serving up British food, much of it from their own family farm, it's all about locally grown, sustainable produce.
This Tonkotsu is a small departure from the rest, as it features a counter-style ramen bar of the kind you'll find in Tokyo. But don't worry - if it's your favourite ramen dishes you're after, they're on the menu too.
