Ahead of its 25 birthday, Notting Hill hotspot Kensington Place has just reopened following a fabulous redesign to its interior. The grand refurb overseen by British Designer Polly Dickens (The Conran Shop) sees a beautiful black and white tiled floor, a distinctive handmade wire sculpted shoal of fish across the rear wall, custom made communal table and banquette seating and fish shaped water jugs for the tables. Look carefully at that trademark mural for a few surprise additions to reflect Kensington Place's new direction.
A new menu from recently appointed head chef Dan Loftin will celebrate the best of British fish, as well as classic brasserie dishes of frites, roast rump and confit shoulder of lamb, Jerusalem artichokes and girolles, braised suckling pig belly and seared Cornish scallops.
Local ingredients are paramount and fish is sustainably sourced fish from Billingsgate Market and the British coast – you can pop next door to The Fish Shop to select your meal if you're so inclined. The bar too has had a revamp with a brand new Enoround enabling customers to choose from a varied range of wines by the glass.
