Urban Meadow

Time Out says

Sleek premises, white with a copper leaf motif, host this all-day restaurant and café, serving modish British food. The menu is divided into 'grazing' and 'mains' sections, plus salads and sandwiches – so dining can be informal. Grazers might choose potted rabbit, say, or crushed avocado toast with chilli, coriander and pea shoots. Mains range from comfort-food staples like cauliflower cheese to grilled sea bass with capers, anchovies, black olives and smoked chilli.

Seriously.... Ugh... Where do I start.

I live 2 minutes from urban meadow but with so many spots for brunch in the area I still hadn't managed to pop in. Crazy right?

Anyhoo... The Al fresco seating is great.. You can enjoy a nice breeze and great sun exposure. However, that's as good as it will ever get.

The service is terrible! We were seated and waited 15 mins for someone to come and take our drink orders... The only reason that even happened is because we got tired of waiting and went and found someone.

To boot they served us champagne in cheap looking glasses and when we asked why everyone else had beautiful glasses she said it will look a lot less if we changed the glasses.


We then attempted to try their cocktails and that's when it went even further downhill.

Twice we had to send it back and couldn't even drink what came before us. I will never go back.. Ever.... And wouldn't recommend it either.


The first big plus of this restaurant and bar is the huge outside area at the front. Situated at the beginning of Notting Hill on Bayswater Road, it's one of the few places I don't mind sitting staring out on to a busy main road, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the cars going past.

In summer the huge sliding doors open up and the whole space feels quite tranquil and cool.

The menu has something for everyone, from what you would expect (burgers, pasta and sandwiches), to the more seasonal and creative (lamb with samphire; mint and orange duck breast salad), and mains range from £9 to just over £20 which is normal for Notting Hill.

Service is generally quite good.

While the surrounding pubs are rammed with no chance of bagging a seat, this is a great option if you want to be outside.


Looking over the expanses of Hyde Park, nothing says ‘London Summer’ like Urban Meadow’s beautiful terrace, complete with colourful furnishings and wide cream canopies. Plus there's plenty of inside cover for when the weather inevitably turns grey!

The first thing you should know about Urban Meadow is their staff really want you to have a good time. They're enthusiastic and our waiter seemed particularly keen that we tried every cocktail on the menu by the end of lunch.The cocktail list at Urban Meadow is pretty delicious so it was a nice challenge to be set!

For our first round I ordered an Elderflower Fizz which arrived complete with summery striped straw and pretty mint garnish. 

Our meal started with delicious Crispy fried calamari cooked to perfection, accompanied garlic and lemon mayonnaise and perfectly fresh grilled green asparagus complete with a ‘just runny enough’ poached egg and creamy hollandaise sauce. For mains I had oven baked salmon fillet that came on a bed of green beans and asparagus with baby new potatoes and a coriander butter that I would have married if that was at all possible. 

We were finding it hard to choose a dessert at this point (possibly the fault of the three cocktails but who’s counting!) and this is where our waiter made the transition from new best friend to best friend for life, bringing us two freshly baked chocolate chip cookies with melted chocolate centres to tide us over until we made our decision. Still hot from the oven. Like I said the staff are really nice and enthusiastic!!

It's a great place for a lovely long lunch. Rumour is they also do an amazing afternoon tea (the rumour being the fact I saw it on another table and stared at it greedily) and a terrific brunch.

My one regret? Not completing the cocktail challenge. Oh well, I’ll just have to get myself back there to try the rest!


The name of this restaurant conjured up images of a quaint cafe set oppositethe park. It could possible count as such if was not attached to a massive chain hotel.

There are plenty of hotel restaurants that provide great food and wonderful service but unfortunately this is not one of them.

The brunch selection is so bland and uninspiring that I opted for a lunch option instead, pork schnitzel which was actually very tasty. All of the side options were very enjoyable as well and with an offer of 2 sides for £4, they are good value too.

Although the food I had was very enjoyable the service was so slow that it negated the fact that the staff were actually very accommodating and professional.

If I do return it won't be in a hurry and will be on a day when I have loads of time to kill.


I've walked past this place a few times on my way to Notting Hill and never given it a second glance as it just looks full of tourists and from the outside looks a bit tacky.

I recently came for a pop up painting session and inside is actually quite nicely decorated and very light and spacious. 
The location is near to Kensington Gardens so would be good for a glass of wine or a coffee catch up 
Not sure on the prices of drinks and food as we didn't eat however I saw someone with some potato fries that looked pretty good. 
Keep an eye out for certain evenings for pop up painting sessions as they're fab! 
My lesson learnt - don't judge a book by its cover!
