What once used to be the local Portobello pub Gold, the newest edition continues to carry on the legendary name to become a sophisticated, contemporary and cosmopolitan restaurant and late-night bar. Serving modern European creations, the chefs behind this new local gem place all emphasis on minimal intervention cooking that is served to be shared.  

The interiors, designed by local architect and design duo Felix and Valerie von Bechstolsheim, exudes a modern bohemian feel and takes inspiration from Portobello’s once-thriving industrial past, and moreover, the area’s incredibly unique cultural mix of individuals ranging from artists and musicians, to designers and all-round creatives. There is a stripped back aesthetic and raw feel throughout, such as choosing to keep the original exterior shell of the building whilst exhibiting industrial-luxe details inside.

Set over three fantastic floors, guests are welcome to hang around the open-plan bar and kitchen area or take a seat in the lush garden room where a retractable roof and mature landscaped trees offer the ideal tranquil escape from Portobello’s bustling streets.

A team of chefs who have come from front-runners in the gastronomy industry such as Soho House, Pizza East and the River Café storm the kitchen of this west London gem. Additionally, the menu includes delicacies such as charcuterie and cheese, salads, vegetables and plates to share. Using predominantly seasonal ingredients, techniques including live-fire cooking, wood roasting, charring and slow cooking ‘keep the spirit of our menu relaxed and timeless’. Pair it with one of the many fantastic homemade cocktails or choose from what seems to be an endless wine list results in the perfect late-night casual dinner.

Set in the heart of Portobello, the restaurant drew attention even before it opened to become one of the neighbourhood’s newest hotspots. A plethora of cultures meet artistic eclecticism to become this sensational eatery.
