Finally, what we’ve all been waiting for. A Spandau Ballet themed restaurant. No, we’re just kidding, this huge three storey pub and dining room in Notting Hill might not have a Gary Kemp lookalike serving their seasonal small plates, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t excellent. Although you’re looking at bigger prices than your average pub situation, dishes like wood-roasted whole sea bream and chargrilled squid are worth the extra spend. The upstairs dining room is all exposed brick and linen banquette seating, but the downstairs area with its palm trees and glass ceiling is where you really want to be. Heads up, they’re open until 1am at the weekend.
