Housed in a picturesque old building in the heart of one of London’s most charming areas, Goode & Wright already has all the makings of a great bistro before you even see the menu. Once you do, and taste it, though, you’re likely to discover that this atmospheric Portobello Road eatery has much more going for it – namely one of the very best menus of modern British cuisine in Notting Hill.
Lovely little place!! Food was lovely great friendly staff had lovely catch up with my girlfriends and pretty comfortable bearing in mind that the weather was scorching
Amazing brunch and great atmosphere. The only thing that could make it a touch better is adding a sweet option or two to the fantastic menu.
Excellent local restaurant. Warm and friendly, good straight forward food. Had a lovely private evening with a friends. Lovely, wonderful, fabulous, terrific, great, good food.
From the outside Goode & Wright appears to be something from the past, a nostalgic European bistro in an old building as photo-worthy as the other sites along Notting Hill’s celebrated Portobello Road. However, settle in and you’ll find that nothing about Goode & Wright is stuck in the past, and the menu created by talented chef Grant Holloway shows as much care and flair for modern British cuisine as any casual restaurant in London. For that reason Goode & Wright is a must-visit for those curious about the current state of British dining, but for anybody Goode & Wright is a warm, welcoming bistro that promises superb feeds and welcome respite from the hustle and bustle outside.
Taking old British favourites and giving them new life, Goode & Wright showcases an acute understanding of traditional techniques as well as an eye for great ingredients and an ear to the ground on London’s most enticing food trends. Brunch on Portobello Road is a nice weekend event, but here it is really something special, with a duck-egg omelette with chorizo, toasted brioche with dark chocolate ganache, and granola with Greek yogurt and local London honey taking the place of their outdated relatives. Lunchtime ushers in charred prawns with burnt lemon and aioli, beef tartare with nduja toast and other intriguing options, and you have a smorgasbord of fantastic small and large plates available for dinner, which make Goode & Wright particularly perfect for groups and social gatherings in Notting Hill.
