Community theatre, exhibition space, dance studio and all-day dining in red-brick former church.
The Tabernacle is a Caribbean cultural centre that hosts musicians, theatre productions and other shows. There's also great Caribbean food available. A great place to meet other locals.
Originally a Protestant chapel, now a community centre, The Tab is a Notting Hill institution. You can join the locals and come here for exhibitions, for yoga or dance classes, or for a drink or a meal in the café/restaurant right at the front of the building. The food has a West Indian bent but…
This is a brilliant community theatre with exhibition space, a dance studio and all-day dining area in a red-brick former church.
“Serving a huge selection of tequilas, plus your usual array of alcoholic beverages, this is where the party’s at. You can soak up some of that alcohol with some Mexican fare – tacos, enchiladas and burritos are on offer with a wide range of fillings and spicy flavours.”
“Reminder: you are on Portobello Road so drinks aren't cheap, but this is still a little cheaper than other places. Mau Mau is more upbeat and has a good selection of cocktails. If you go too late, then it might be a little busy. ”
“Italian with stripped interiors, serving antipasti and rustic pizza and mains. Good idea to book”
“They have another in Shoreditch, but the interiors do not compare! This is the one to go to!”
“This isn’t just one of the best spots in Notting Hill, it’s one of the best restaurants in London too. Australian chef Brett Graham was just 26 when he opened the Ledbury back in 2005, and since then he’s won and continuously held onto two Michelin stars. The resolutely British eight-course tasting menu reads like a paean to the English countryside: clay-baked white beetroot, Herdwick lamb with purple aubergine, aged pigeon with endives, lots of game and Graham’s signature brown-sugar and stem-ginger tart. This may be a proper starchy-white-tablecloth restaurant, but there’s a genuine buzz inside and staff are welcoming, guiding diners through the lengthy wine list. Come for a special-occasion supper – reservations open two months in advance, so book far ahead.”
