Celebrating the finest British ingredients for an exceptional and relaxed dining experience in the heart of Notting Hill. Core is an elegant fine dining restaurant with an emphasis on natural, sustainable food, sourced from the UK’s most dedicated farmers and food producers. We create beautifully crafted dishes, seeking out the best of British produce, with a passion to delight and share our curiosity and our love of delicious artisanal food.

Since opening in August 2017, Core has received numerous awards including three stars in the 2021 Michelin Guide, 10/10 in the Good Food Guide, five AA rosettes, Best Restaurant at the GQ Food and Drink Awards, New Restaurant of the Year by The Craft Guild of Chefs, and the Service Award at the National Restaurant Awards. 3 Star,. It’s not just the food that makes a restaurant and here at Core, Clare Smyth really focuses on the whole experience. From the moment you arrive her superb team will put you at ease with their warm welcome and natural pride in providing some of the smoothest, most attentive service around. The room is wonderfully elegant, and larger parties can book the long table down a couple of steps, right beside the kitchen.

Go for one of the tasting menus: ‘Core Classics’, which features dishes that Clare has continually refined over the years, or ‘Core Seasons’, which sees more contemporary constructions with a luxurious edge. The strength of the kitchen lies in its ability to create modern dishes that deliver superb flavours and textures but in a restrained, understated style. The terrific wine flights enhance an already outstanding experience.
