Review: The Hayden Notting Hill

There’s a new kid on the block in Notting Hill – The Hayden on Westbourne Grove – serving up creative cocktails, a menu of refined British classics, weekend brunch and impressive Sunday roasts. Plus, it boasts eight luxury boutique bedrooms.


The Hayden – A Destination Pub in Notting Hill, with Eight Boutique Bedrooms

Located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Notting Hill, just moments from Portobello Road and Westfield White City, is landmark British pub The Hayden, with a welcoming restaurant, bar and eight luxury boutique bedrooms.


After undergoing an extensive makeover complete with new menus, this atmospheric London pub oozes sophisticated charm, from its grey wood-panelled walls, to red leather banquettes, decorative tin ceiling and large statement mirrors. The menu offers a selection of refined British classics, served from a central open kitchen, including jumbo short rib of beef slow cooked and smoked for 24 hours, steak and blue cheese salad, and seafood sharing platters, as well as a variety of burgers served with skin-on chips.

On weekends, start your day right with a hearty brunch of fluffy maple pancakes with bacon, Eggs Royale, or opt for the Westbourne full English breakfast. Sunday’s are a family affair with an impressive selection of roasts and joints, including rotisserie chicken and roast beef, all served with Yorkshire puds, roasties, seasonal veg and gravy, there is something for everyone.

The same care has gone into the drinks as the food, with a carefully curated selection of signature cocktails including 65 Bonbon with Ciroc vodka, Chambord, Maraschino liqueur, pineapple juice, lychee liqueur and lime juice, alongside local craft brews and an extensive wine list.

For special celebrations and group gatherings, the intimate semi-private lounge is the perfect location tucked away from the main dining area, and suitable for 30 standing or 26 seated.


Above the pub, and spread across three floors, the modern double and twin bedrooms come complete with bespoke mirrors, vintage chandeliers and distinctive feature walls. Crisp linens, opulent fabrics and walls washed with calming greys and creams, making each room a sanctuary from busy urban life.

Luxury doesn’t end with the décor; king size Posturepedic beds, wide-screen smart televisions, mini fridge, ultra-fast WIFI and in-room coffee machines, ensuring all home comforts and high- tech amenities are at your fingertips. Bright and modern en-suites provide the ultimate space to relax and unwind with reviving rainforest showers and spacious bathtubs. Room rates start from £165 for a twin or £185 for a double.

Equally suitable for business travellers and leisure breaks, the rooms at The Hayden are available for exclusive take-overs making it ideal for small wedding parties and groups looking for the ultimate boutique basecamp.

So whether you’re a Notting Hill local, in the area for the day or looking for a relaxing stay – this is the perfect Portobello Belle for you.

Our Thoughts?

So cosy and the staff are so friendly and accommodating! A great addition to the Notting Hill area if you are looking for somewhere to stay centrally in a great location but don’t want the big price tag with rooms from £165 a night.

The Bedrooms are very quaint and comfortable and it’s a lovely home from home!
