It’s about great pub grub and local lagers at this Notting Hill favourite.

Score a table outside, order a pint of prawns, some chicken liver pate and a glass of the Beavertown Gamma Ray from Tottenham and you’re in business at The Westbourne, a pub that’s been a Notting Hill favourite for decades.

In summer, balmy nights are best spent outside sipping on one of the 17 tap brews and a Cotes de Provence Rose by the bottle; while during winter, a table by the window with some Cumberland sausages and mash and a bottle of Bordeaux is the order of the day.
