Pizza East Portobello

The former Fat Badger pub has transformed into a swan under the wing of the achingly fashionable Soho House Group, a company that seems to specialise in charging more than its cooking is worth, but compensates diners with fabulous interiors and a feeling of being in with the in-crowd.

Refreshingly, this branch of the Pizza East concept doesn’t imitate the hit Shoreditch original. Barring a predilection for white porcelain tiles and the option of bar seating, the two are like night and day: the East Ender’s converted warehouse decor just right for clubbers; this sunny spot (with bright blue chairs, large windows and blue and white striped awnings) inspiring alfresco brunches with friends and family.

We liked the veal meatball pizza, made still more luxurious with cream, and the spicy sausage, mozzarella and broccoli combo – but the desserts left us cold. Apart from around a dozen pizzas, mains include fillet of beef and roast chicken. Breakfast is also served and, as with the original, there’s an on-site deli – though the idea that the Portobello area needs any more retailers of polenta and taleggio is just ridiculous.

We called in for a Sunday night pizza using my 50% off keyring. The place was packed so I'd highly recommend booking but even so, our servers were fantastic and the food arrived in good time. The pizza isn't your authentic Italian thin base but the flavours are great and the garlic bread is yum. If you can half your bill at the end, then this place is a fab place to visit with friends. 


Great atmosphere, gorgeous interiors. Staff are very cool and friendly. Pizza is good, not great, very doughy but tasty nonetheless. Recommend for an evening out with a group of friends - great vibe.

I don't see what all the fuss is about. Nice place with friendly staff and pretty decor but the Pizza was average, and the garlic bread was overly saturated with garlic and butter. I think the Pizza toppings are trying to be a little too experimental but it didn't really work for me.
