Any thoughts on a good Polish restaurant close to Gloucester Road tube and also any comments on what you might call a Polish pub, one with Polish beer and snacks. Thanks so much.

Not near Gloucester Road, but how about one not far from South Kensington, just one stop along (or a short ride on either of the number 49 or 74 buses)?

Daquise, at 20 Thurloe Street, has been serving up Polish food and an assortment of vodkas, for over 50 years. Lots of good food, including some vegetarian options, and Polish beer available as well.

Na zdrowie!

There are two sorts of Polish establishments here. The oldfashioned sort frequented by Poles who came here after WW2, and the modern sort for Poles grown up since the fall of Communism. There are nearly a million of the latter over here.

Daquise is the oldfashioned sort. The Polish Hearth Club is in South Kensington ( you can find it on the internet) and there is a Polish Club in King Street, Hammersmith.

The most wonderful modern Eastern European food is at Baltic, opposite Southwark tube station. There is a very popular bar with flavoured vodkas and delicious bar snacks. This place is quiet at lunchtime and very busy in the evenings.

For all things Polish in London head to Acton for lots of cafes serving homestyle Polish food and also the UK's first chain owned Polish pub "The Belvedere" on the High Street which serves Polish Beer and snacks

Although not Polish, the Wetherspoon chain always has a good selection of Polish, Czech and Lithuanian beers. In some parts of London quite a number of the patrons will be Polish too, and, as in many pubs, so will the bar staff.

You have Polish ancestry?

I like the Patio restaurant at 5 Goldhawk Road, which serves very traditional Polish food and has been run by the same Polish family for more than 30 years. It's a short walk from Shepherds Bush underground station.

Here is a list of some other Polish restaurants:


Also "In 1974 P.O.S.K, the Polish Social and Cultural Centre, was opened on King Street in Hammersmith. Today it houses a library, restaurant, café, art gallery, theatre, travel agency and many other services and is a focus for the Polish community."
