The Hillgate serves traditional pub food and has a strong sense of identity with a following of loyal locals. Its quietly tucked away position, behind Notting Hill Gate, gives a false impression of this lively public house. Pavement seating is also available.

Pretty cosy, upmarket boozer right near nottinghill station.

Several years must have passed since I last visited the Hillgate. Memories of a dark and slightly dingy old men's pub have been replaced by a careful makeover. The bar was heaving on a Thursday night, and we were lucky to be able to grab a corner of one of the big pine tables. A section of the bar is reserved for diners without the Hillgate having to much of a gastro pub feel about it.
It's a lovely pub is a quiet, sweet neighbourhood. It's very close to the Notting Hill station, and has indoor and some outdoor seating. I was happy with their veggie food selection- we had nachos and shishito peppers. It's one of those posh pubs where you feel clean, happy, and warm inside. I'm a fan! more
Really Cozy neighborhood pub. Great drinks and food and awesome atmosphere. We had a few beers, a nachos to share and food. Nachos were great. Especially the guacamole. The Saladin nicoise was tasty. Just the portion too small. Also kids eat free on the weekend. Which was a nice surprise. more
