I had a very serious incident here last December (right before the holidays) where a girl slammed glass into my left eye for no reason whatsoever. After two major operations, I was hospitalised for several days and was forced to take a month off work. This injury is life-long permanent damage. I will never fully recover my eyesight and will need more operations in the future.


This place deserves no stars because they was grossly negligent and completely incompetent for reasons we can only assume to protect their own license: they did not report the injury to the police, let the perpetrator and witness go, asked my friend that night to sign a waiver of responsibility, and claimed that I perpetrated an 'attack' that led to 'my own injury.' 


Thank you for ruining my sight and for dismissing all responsibility. I will now never find justice because of you. You are terrible, terrible people.


(And finally to the girl who did this to me, thank you so much for running away. Good luck to your moraless life and I hope everyday karma will hit you back)

Great place to start your evening over a few pre-dinner cocktails. LOVE the interior! You will feel like you are in some Peter Pan movie! It’s magical!

The best night out I've had in years, great service, great food and a great experience.

Seems like people reviewing are always those who are unhappy which is a shame. I always celebrate my birthdays at BBB and I love the place. The service is excellent, the managers really get involved to make sure everything goes smoothly. They are famous for their amazing drinks and music is always good. I love BBB

My favourite London bar! BBB Notting Hill is classy, serves the best cocktails including their famous Pornstar Martini, staff are a little slow but those cocktails are worth the wait. Their dj is fantastic and has everyone dancing on a Friday night and the food is to die for. I have also visited their Shoreditch branch which is totally different but equally fab but the Notting Hill branch is still my fave London bar. 5 star!!!!

Absolutely appalling service. We pre-booked and pre-ordered our 3 course meal, our table was booked for 9.30pm and we didn't get seated until 10:40pm. Only half of our parties starters arrived at 11pm. With the other half getting told that there was an 'accident' in the kitchen and their food was dropped on the floor! They offered an alternative and the rest of our party got their starter at 11:20pm. Mains came out at 11:55pm, and the beef was rare when I asked for medium to well-done & a few others who had ordered chicken were missing part of theirs. When bringing up the menu to the waitress asking where their extra food was they got no sympathy and were told they didn't have any left. We were extremely angry by this point especially seen as our waitress didn't want to listen to us so spent 30 minutes complaining to the manager who only said he would take the 12.5% service charge off! For a big party who had pre-ordered their food and booked a table for 9:30pm not actually getting their food until 11pm is a disgrace!!! Would never go back!!

truly the WORST bar staff in notting hill... they all THINK they are too cool and important to be serving drinks. takes forever to get served and when you finally do, you are given major attitude. The food is also overpriced and distinctly average. dont waste your money, there are far better bars/restaurants with lovely staff and amazing food just a street away.

Oh dear, difficult to know what to say about this place. Either I am completely mad and all the reviews I saw on another site are genuine or ... The food was okay, not great but okay, the waiting staff seemed totally fed up and for the extortionate price and lack of customer service it is just not worth the trek (for me, anyway) to Notting Hill. Avoid!
