Windsor Castle pub, Notting Hill, London
Comfortable locals pub - though be aware that the locals are some of the wealthiest people around! The pub is old-fashioned and unspoiled, with secluded nooks and an outdoor (but partly covered) eating area.
I always found this to be a great pub for entertaining visitors, especially Americans, who love the snugs and the traditional food.
Favorite Dish: Honest pub fare with top quality ingredients. The organic sausage and mash is excellent. The sausages are quite possibly from nearby Lidgates (qv)
