Prince Bonaparte

There’s a hint of gastropub-by-rote to the large, corner Bonaparte, but the formula is rendered well. It’s a big, bare-bricked, high-ceilinged space but not an unwelcoming one, with picture windows inviting an egalitarian mix of men and women inside for evenings of friendly chat over a glass of something cold.

In both the lunch and the dinner menus, the starters (grilled squid, butter bean and chorizo stew; squash purée, goat’s curd and toasted pine nuts with pitta bread) display a little more spontaneity than the mains, but it’s all good stuff, with prices about what you’d expect given the postcode.

The Bonaparte also serves the drinker well: ales from Sharp’s (Own, Doom Bar, Cornish Coaster) feature on the low, half-moon bar counter, along with Moretti, Camden Hells Lager and Sagres; there are more than a dozen wines by the glass and around 40 by the bottle.

This Notting Hill pub is on the corner of Chepstow Road and has a nice, homely, comforting feel with a pub fire and super friendly bar staff. It's always busy but you can always somehow sneak a table and they serve food pretty late too. I've had a lunchtime tasty healthy salad here, and a not so healthy fish and chips served with mushy peas and tartare sauce. It's a must visit for the selection of beers and extensive wine selection.
