It can be difficult to find something new and different in the neighbourhood of Notting Hill, so spoilt are locals when it comes to restaurants, so thank goodness for the Walmer Castle, a genuinely unusual blend of British pub and Thai restaurant. With all the cosy comfort and charming vibe of the best of public houses, the Walmer Castle nonetheless throws itself whole heartedly in to creating a believably Eastern setting, complete with dimmed lighting, glamorous touches of gold and richly patterned wall coverings. The result is part glam boutique resort restaurant, part eccentric colonialism. Both a bar menu, on which you’ll discover great light Asian options and hearty British dishes, and a full a la carte complete with banquet and tasting choices, are available to choose from, the focus very firmly on exploring Thai, Malaysian and Indonesian flavours in traditional recipes made using wholly authentic ingredients.

Anyone who is local to Notting Hill knows the Walmer Castle. Consider it like the famous pub Cheers in Boston - where everyone knows your name. Cool pub, cool crowd, but no wankers. One of my favourite all time pubs. Staff are super friendly and manage a bar faster than any other i know, meaning you get your drinks fast. Just had renovations so definitely worth spending a afternoon or night there for a few drinks with great friends.

The management and staff in this pub are arrogant and rude. There are plenty of great pubs in west London, this is definitely not one of them
