Notting Hill and Portobello Road in particular is one of the most famous media locations in London. Portobello Gold is situated right in the heart of the antiques market which runs only on Saturdays, as opposed to the fruit and vegetable market down the street, the antiques block is the quietest part of the whole road. The conservatory with a sliding glass roof offers plenty of light on a winter day. The roof terrace is popular offering pleasant views of St. Peter's Church to the rear, and Kensal Rise four miles to the north.

The kitchen offers modern British and an innovative Mediterranean menu, with seafood and vegetarian options as specialities. Cajun jumbo shrimp with homemade sweet chilli jam, crispy tofu with chilli, garlic, spinach, and soy mushrooms, and Welsh rarebit with cherry tomatoes make for excellent options for light bites. For a more filling meal you could order sausage and bean casserole, or beef Guinness and oyster pie.

A beautiful frontage, original wood panels and traditional plate glass are only a few of the things customers notice at this Formosa Street mainstay. Inside its no less attractive, the bar area at Price Alfred is split into five separate cosy spots, and the adjoining Formosa Dining Room places emphasis on warm service and great food.

The guiding tenets behind the cooking are seasonality and ample portions, and starters certainly display some novelty, think mussels with spicy coconut and sugar snaps, and smoked wild venison salad with onion marmalade and pesto. Main courses venture in different directions, from wild boar sausages and half a native East Coast lobster to 8 oz open Exmoor beef burger topped with pan-fried foie gras, sautéed new potatoes and Madeira sauce.

Price Alfred's bar menu provides much respite to those looking for a quick bite and their drinks list is well-chosen with several wines available by the glass.

The Jam Tree, split across three levels, is perfect for relaxed lunches, after work drinks or private dinner parties. The interior is a unique blend of modish décor and antique mismatched furniture. The copper bar top is the focal point of the main dining area whilst old fashioned science lab benches complete the look with Bunsen burner taps.

The menu, designed by James Browne of The Settle Inn, Aquum, and The Well, offers great British dishes with colonial favourites from Malaysia, South Africa and India. You could expect the likes of Malaysian laksa - spicy noodle soup - with chicken or vegetables, salt marsh lamb rump with peas and broad beans, minted Jersey royals and pan juices or chicken Madras served with naan, channa dal and fragrant rice.

The final course is no less global, opening with the South African malva pudding.

Established as a public house in 1826 the Duke of York has been a landmark building in St. Johns Wood ever since. It was a meeting place for local residents who would come in for refreshments and to buy a large range of imported produce.
