Bumpkin Notting Hill

With flowery wallpaper, linen tea towels as napkins and mismatched china, Bumpkin’s take on a funky farmhouse kitchen is charming. It’s buzzy, fun and one up from a gastropub, with a jolly wine list, farmhouse ciders and a guest ale on draught – hurrah! The emphasis on cocktails is telling; Bumpkin belongs to the bar group that includes Prince Harry’s hangout Boujis. Notting Hill’s ex-boarding-school crowd appreciates this British comfort food, and the more sedate upstairs dining room should be ideal for entertaining guests from abroad. But visitors might be baffled by the seemingly cheddar-less cauliflower cheese, or miss the point of a dull fish cake. For pudding they might wonder if the crumble topping should be so crunchy, but enjoy the proper vanilla custard. We couldn’t fault starters of butternut squash soup with thyme and almonds, and a glorious spring vegetable salad of baby roots, beans, peas, cherry tomatoes and pea shoots plus bosworth ash goat’s cheese. Full marks too for the heritage tomato salad. Weirdly there was no bread available. Service was friendly: too familiar in the case of the waitress who sat at the next table to recount her life story while we waited for our bill.

A venue for a relaxing brunch with a group of friends was required and I couldn’t think of anything better than Bumpkin. I’d heard a lot of hype about this restaurant and couldn’t wait for a chance to give it a try.

After strolling through the beautiful, if somewhat pretentious streets of Notting Hill, I arrived at Bumpkin located on the corner of a charming street. This Brasserie serving from a hearty British menu has a laid back country pub feel to it. mis-matched furniture and china, ornate flowery wallpaper and homey touches such as candles give this restaurant a very relaxed feeling. It’s exactly the kind of place you’d like to while away a few hours in good company.

The staff are friendly and attentive, adding to the comfort levels. However for those who are trying to curb their spending the delicious breakfast menu is the best option.

Great restaurant. Cosy and great British menu. 

Love the Sunday roasts.

Also a great venue to host parties as they have several rooms upstairs the cater for a range of party sizes.


Some dishes are very good, some other are not... In any case, very small portion sizes... I won't suggest it in any case.


Food was ok but way overpriced and small portion sizes. Will not be back.


We've been to Bumpkin a number of times and will continue to go back. The menu has a good mix of prices (from pot pies to steak) and the place is comfortable. They're always very accommodating, and the last time we went there they gave us a free glass of wine as they were a bit late seating us. One of my favourite London restaurants!
