The quintessential neighbourhood bar and bartender hangout, there's very rarely a quiet night at this Notting Hill local.
The now world famous Portobello Star has firmly established itself as a must-visit venue for both bartenders and 'normal people' alike.
The drinks list is testament to Jake F Burger's dedication to the cause. There's not much food unless you like brownies (everybody likes brownies right?) but no one seems to mind too much.
