If you’ve ever gone to Portobello Market from the Notting Hill tube, you may have noticed The Sun In Splendour. Next time, consider going in for a drink and maybe a meal. Notting Hill has changed tremendously, but the Sun has barely changed at all – except in bumping up the size and range of its menus. There’s a rotating set of real ales, craft beers in bottles, traditional English food including Sunday roasts, genuinely friendly service, and a garden out back with shelter from the rain. Forget the market. Come here instead.
