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 cafe/restaurant right at the front of the building. The food has a West Indian bent, but there are also burgers and breakfasts. This is not a place for a date: you’re eating in what’s essentially the foyer of a public building. But the local vibe, all ages and all races, makes The Tab a great place to hang.
