I have been here many times over the years. I really liked it when it had the Thai restaurant upstairs. Now all English food it is ok for a drink with friends. I used this place as a pre drinks meet-up and reserving space is free and was always easy by email no hassle complaints on that front. I will... More

The pub is in a more sophisticated part of generally eclectic Notting Hill. The interior is maybe a bit juvenile in its attempt to be individualistic. The menu and wine list is very common.

Hello Renso Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. Bit disappointed about your comments but everyone has got own opinion. In terms of juvenile attempt to look individualistic I think you might be referring to our current art showcase around the pub. It's local artist based initiative that received only good feedback from community and our customers. It's only... More

We found Walmer Castle while searching for somewhere to eat on Christmas Day 2016. And what a great find it was. We were a long way from home and dining here on the 25th was a highlight of our six week trip to Europe. In fact it was that good we returned on at least six occassions. The food was... More

Have dropped into The Walmer Castle a couple or three times. Has a nice chilled out atmosphere playing great music. Had the Lamb Sunday lunch today, it was great and very reasonably priced. Please guys sort out your wifi issue.

Was greeted by a server behind the bar who aggressively told me the Thai restaurant had been closed for over 3 years (only asked if the restaurant - generic - upstairs, was open. Ruined the atmosphere and set us up for bad service from the start. Hire better barmen.

Hello eplmiu Firstly, I would like to apologise for aggressive behaviour of my member of staff. Your review came to me as a surprise as I've put so much pressure on my staff to be positive about change of cuisine in our upstairs room. That's the only way to persuade customers arriving with Thai food in mind to try our... More

Fortunately we managed to find a table on this busy Saturday ( Portobello Market ). Very popular with the market goers / tourist and the Notting Hill locals. Good variety of drinks and good good. Staff are good as usual.

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
