Clarkes Restaurant


Opened in 1983 by passionate chef Sally Clarke, this local legend on Kensington Church Street has become a firm favourite with professional critics and amateur gourmets alike. For 21 years, Sally served a four-course "no choice" set dinner, but now there is a weekly changing menu that showcases her passion for high quality seasonal produce.

Herbs and vegetables come from organic suppliers in South East England; buffalo mozzarella is flown in from Naples twice a week; and shellfish is sent overnight by rail from Scotland.

Popular dishes include loin of Balmoral roe deer with apple and sage sauce; baked fillet of Cornish brill with herbed crumbs and thyme cream; and dark chocolate and chestnut tart. Clarke's is quite simply an unforgettable experience.

Next-door to the restaurant is Clarke's Shop, a provisions shop selling freshly baked goods from the restaurant kitchen, including pastries, breads, tarts, cakes, muffin and biscuits alongside a daily changing selection of fruits and vegetables.

The food was great but the service was awful. They were clearly much more interested in serving their regular clientele, which was a disappointment because we live in Notting Hill- it was just our first time. We probably won't go back given all the choices in the area.more

Another great meal in London! My husband booked this table well in advance. The restaurant is lovely. Dove grey walls, wood floors. Clean and fresh! Our service was attentive. The bread was heavenly! My husband loved his salmon appetizer and lamb main course. I'm a vegetarian and we let them know ahead of time. They acknowledged it but offered me sides off of the main courses to be...more

Very nice experience. My grandson and I split a very large ribeye steak, my daughter had the prix fix diinner of fish, and my wife had a beautiful chilled soup and the chicken dish. All wonderfully prepared an delivered by a friendly and helpful staff. Very spendy but well worth it.more

This is one of a kind, daily menu of the freshest food combined brilliantly. We talked about each and every bite during dinner, and afterwards. Generous portions. Reasonable wine prices. The bread is wicked good. Going back again before leaving London. Go!more

Definitely one of the most expensive, yet fancy, options in the area, and would be perfect for a posh, white tabel cloth lunch. I had the sea bass with fennel and new potatoes and it was very good, but again, at 22 pounds it should be. The bread basket is excellent, I must say. The stilion cheese bread is gorgeous, as are the handmade truffles.

If you want a proper lunch, no frills, just...more
