Review: Gold Notting Hill

The Lowdown


Inspired by the area’s unique cultural mix of artists, designers and musicians, Gold’s approach to dining reflects the discerning, cosmopolitan spirit of contemporary west London. The restaurant is spearheaded by
a team of local industry all-stars, including Head Chef Theo Hill (The River Café) and Front of House team Alex Ghalleb (Pizza East) and Arez Akgundogdu (Soho House). The menu exudes colour, taste and modern
freshness, and focuses on produce-led sharing plates and minimal-process cooking in wood ovens or over open flame.

Located on Portobello Road in the heart of Notting Hill.

The Food

The food consists of lots of small and medium sized plates which is great for sharing!

We went for the following:

Marinated sardines on toast, fennel seed, chilli

Wild sea bass carpaccio, marjoram, chilli, datterini tomatoes

Charred sweet heart cabbage, bagna cauda, chilli, bread crumbs

Rainbow radishes, tarassaco, frisee, capers, anchovy red wine vinaigrette- This was my favourite!

Wood roasted cauliflower, spiced yoghurt, cumin, toasted buckwheat, coriander

Wood roasted pale aubergines, perroche goat’s cheese, fresh chilli, mint

Wood roasted half Cornish Red chicken, nduja, tomatoes, parma ham, sourdough

It was all so flavoursome and delicious!

The Interiors

The modern bohemian interiors, from local architect and design duo Felix and Valerie von Bechtolsheim, draw on Portobello’s once-thriving industrial past to create a restaurant and bar that is both informal and open. The stripped back aesthetic exposes the original shell of the building for a raw look, while the contrasting industrial-luxe details, contemporary furniture, aged metals and vast indoor trees soften the space creating a warm, welcoming environment. Set over 4 floors, guests are greeted on the ground floor by a bar and open-kitchen area, leading out into a lush garden room. With a retractable roof and landscaped with mature trees, the garden room offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Portobello Road. The first floor houses a further lounge and dining area and the second floor is taken up by a private party room.

Private Events

Gold Notting Hill is a very diverse space, set over three floors, that can cater for events of all sizes. From intimate private dining bookings to large receptions and garden terrace takeovers. Guests are offered a range of set menus for both seated and standing events, or are able to create their own bespoke menu and wine pairing.
