Food and drink
I tend to go for the traditional fare. Huge pieces of sustainably sourced fish (pollock, haddock, cod) come in a shell of smooth, crisp beer batter with rich tartare sauce. The chips are great, but unusually they are charged separately at £2.95 for a smallish bowl. My husband loves the sweet, fresh-tasting mussels marinière with creamy lemon and parsley broth. We adore the chocolate brownie too, which features the toasty crunch of whole hazelnuts and a ball of blood orange sorbet on top. House white is a pleasing French viognier.
Luxuriously appointed, with smart grey wallpaper, deep-padded high-backed chairs, and black glass wall lights. Customers are a mix of locals, tourists and families.
Pleasant and unobtrusive.
A quiet side street off Notting Hill Gate.
Three courses for two people plus one of the cheaper bottles of wine will cost just under £80. There are cheaper places to get fish and chips!
Geale’s has a new branch in Chelsea Green – see website for details.
