With time to kill, this pub was an extra bonus for me. It's a gastropub tucked away a couple of minutes walk from Notting Hill Gate tube in a residential area. The place was busy. There were a couple of drinkers at the bar. But most people were there for food. There are waiting staff, who were turning away people at the door, such was its popularity for meals. Sharp's Atlantic is the house beer. Guests were Marston's Poppy Ale & Wessex Witchcraft. The latter was my choice and it wasn't a bad tipple. Although, as with the Windsor Castle just up the hill, it was standing room only and I felt in the way as there wasn't even a surface to place my drink. Better than I had originally anticipated though.

The Hillgate has been given a refit and has a new menu with a new chef and is wonderful. Love how the pub looks, and the food is out of this world. I ate Bavette Steak which was perfectly cooked - quite honestly the best steak I've ever had in a pub where so often you're let down when you order one.

They have a good range of ales on offer, including Wandle and Pride.

The loos here used to be a bit disgusting, but they're much better now. If you haven't been to the Hillgate recently, you should make the effort to go back soon.

I read that this pub had improved of late. Sadly not much. Only one ale on - not well kept. Clientelle noisy and up their own a***s

Re MrMurphy below...

You should not be surprised that the bar woman asked what kind of a stupid question is that?, simply because it is a very stupid question, the reason being that Guinness is a pasteurized keg product that does not easily go bad. It is not an ale, its a mediocre keg stout which, unlike real ale, has a long shelf-life and is designed to taste the same everywhere. So, to a bar worker whose profession is working with beer on a daily basis, your question would have come across as ridiculous.

Down to the Gate to see Swifty (6 bargain on Mondays) so popped in here for a very quick half so not much to comment on. A few regulars and a couple of barstaff who weren't busy but were busy cleaning tidying up, etc. Beach Boys on which was pleasant and a nicely chilled lager. Pleasant all round.
