Rum Kitchen
Announcement Join us for bottomless brunch every Saturday and Sunday. £30 for brunch with unlimited rum punch, bloody marys and bellinis for two hours!

There surely can't be a more jolly place to drink in Notting Hill: colourful wooden wall-slats and furniture fill the upstairs bar, and down in the party-time basement there’s good reggae, very friendly staff and rum, rum and more rum. The selection is enormous, and you could spend weeks here without getting through it all. On the cocktail front, there are plenty of big fruity numbers, but the classicism of a perfect daiquiri makes us think this is the way to go. There’s a happy hour from 6pm to 8pm too. If you stay later, you’ll probably find yourself unable to resist the lure of jerk chicken, saltfish fritters or just an enormous bowl of sweet potato fries.

Rum Kitchen says
Come and check out our Caribbean inspired beach shack restaurant and cocktail bar. We focus on our jerk sauces, seasoning and cooking techniques to ensure the perfect flavour balance. We endeavour to showcase the vibrant spirit of the West Indies and serve more than 200 types of rum! Plantation have kindly bottled our very own 25-year-old so if you're celebrating then let us know! We take our playlists seriously so expect to hear a world class selection of reggae and soul!

We opened this spot in 2012, a 200 capacity site nestled in the heart of Notting Hill on All Saints Road.

Since then we've been fortunate enough to gain impressive reviews from critics such as AA Gill and Grace Dent and been frequented regularly by customers such as Prince Harry, David and Victoria Beckham, Harry Styles, Nicole Scherzinger and Rita Ora.

We're open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner and Saturday and Sunday for brunch also (from 11am). Our best-sellers are the jerk chicken burger and the LDD cocktail. Just ask any of the barmen if you need help with choosing the right rum, they're some of the best in the business!

Join us every Wednesday for #WingsDay where you can enjoy unlimited jerk chicken wings, sweet potato fries and a cold Red Stripe or rum punch for £19.50! Just ask for the current record!

Hope to see you soon! Feel free to email us on NottingHill@therumkitchen.com #NoRumNoRainbow

Having anticipated an authentic Caribbean treat in the Notting Hill area, we were sadly to be disappointed. The restaurant was buzzing with young and trendy clientele, and the decoration promised the full West Indian experience. However, the welcome at the bar fell flat and the rum based cocktails on offer were moderate at best. The Saltfish Fritters and Hot Pepper Poppers as starters were the best thing on this very limited menu. The TRK Jerk chicken bowl was served with slaw that lacked freshness whilst the chicken pieces did not seem fully seasoned. However, the Sweet Potato Fries that were served as sides to the mains were the only saving grace. The chocolate rum pot with nut brittle and berries was standard. The service was speedy and courteous, however, one had nagging doubts about how much money was spent for so little to show for it.

First time at Rum Kitchen after hearing all the hype and coming back after a holiday in the Caribbean, this was just the ticket. We started the meal with some cocktails, thought £8.50-&10 was a little pricey and didn't taste that great. Starters range from £5-6 and were yum, we had the poppers and the quid. Mains were about £8-13, we tried the pull pork burger and wings, I wasn't impressed with either and my pork was cold, so had to be sent back to the kitchen. Service was good. But a meal for two of us cost £70, that's included cocktails and two courses. I was not overly impressed.

A Caribbean beach shack bringing a little bit of my Island to London! If you don’t eat meat, don’t be put off by the jerk themed menu. The vegetarian offerings are plentiful and that’s typical of Caribbean food. Try the Jerk Halloumi burger, Charcoal Roasted Red Pepper, Rainbow Salad or Sweet Potato curry. I’d recommend them all! The sides are pretty pricey at £4 - £5 but the food and atmosphere make up for any shortfall on price. On Wednesdays they do ‘Wings Day’ - unlimited wings for a set price of £19.50 and on Sunday’s a bottomless brunch! That’s next on my to-do list. I recommend Rum Shack for a birthday meal or catch up with friends.

I visited Rum Kitchen last month for the Sunday brunch with 8 other friends at around 11am and  were looking forward to a great experience. But when we arrived, staff could find no record of my friend's.  When we did order our food, we waited nearly 30 minutes for dishes to arrive.  One of my friend’s meals (the Full Jamaican) had half an egg shell in it (!) and the three other Full Jamaican orders were semi-cold, with sausages that were practically burnt.  The staff on the day were very cooperative despite all of this, but we expected our experience to be of a higher standard – and in this case, it just didn’t meet the mark....

Unlimited spicy wings in the Nottinghill branch on certain days, brilliant cocktails and I love the atmosphere here! There is also a nice branch in Soho with balcony seating and winter fairy lights, located just off carnaby street.

Had heard great reviews, so booked a table of 15 for my birthday on a Saturday night. Got there and the table wasn't ready for 45 minutes after the time we had booked it. Service was awful. Very slow, then they brought the wrong food out and then over charged us. Charged us for drinks we hadn't ordered . Food was nice and great atmosphere! But I would not recommend for a big group and I certainly won't be going back any time soon.

Absolutely loved my visit here, great Caribbean classics on option, Curry Mutton was brilliant and the Jerk Fried Chicken Burger has gone down as one of my top 'burgers'! Great demi brioche bun with a smoky scotch bonnet mayo, starters - sticky ribs and wings and salt fish fritters were also great. Cocktails were spot on, bar man suggested a Hemingway Daiquiri.. A twist on a classic daiquiri - brilliant. Will be back!

Overpriced and mediocre - avoid & go somewhere that West Indians actually eat.
