The Lonsdale is one of Notting Hill's most desirable bars - and the recent refit has really sharpened things up. A large, elegant and almost retro ground-floor bar is where you'll find most of the action with an enormous bar running the length of the venue.

On a weekend, The Lonsdale can get busy so arrive early to nab one of the tables at the back of the bar. The late license means it's a great Saturday night choice but the outside space also makes this the perfect spot to finish off a lazy Sunday afternoon mooching around Portobello Road
