“Standard overpriced gastropub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

This part of London abounds in places like this: pubs where they want to serve you ok wine and ok food and charge you more than it all really deserves.
As these places go this isn't too bad. I like the fact it's all in one big room and my pork belly was pretty good. The service is less surly than in other similar places.

“Great pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

An amazing modern pub. Well decorated and a feel at home environment.
Food is excellent too, only a bit pricey. Good selection of beers and pretty friendly staff.

“A Notting Hill Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

When the sun is out there is only one place to head ! The Westbourne ! Good buzz, lots of people, nice selection of wine and beers. Food is solid pub grub. Service is OK (not bad, not great). A nice place for the locals to hang out and for non-locals to visit and question what the allure is !

“Overcool pub trying to hard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

This pub gets chaotic on sunny days, so expect slow service and a crowded bar and outdoor area.
The food itself isn't bad, it's just overpriced for what it is, definately better to be had in many of the places nearby.
Service wise it's the sort of place you'll only get hired if you have a hangover, so keep your expectations low. The crowd is very boho Notting Hill, with all the good and bad stuff you would expect from that.
My advice would be have a drink here when the sun is shining and then pop over the road to somewhere they actually like customers.
