Party Earth The Mitre Review

The Scene

The Mitre in London’s Holland Park is a sophisticated gastropub with great seasonal fare & a lovely wine selection. Class up your London night with Party Earth.

A wholesome dose of sophisticated British eats and an extensive wine list beckon big groups to The Mitre, a stylish hangout nicely anchored between Hyde Park and the famed Portobello Road Market.

A large, hedge-lined terrace strewn with big tables is the first of the venue’s many faces, and makes for an ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely weekend breakfast.

Inside, the circular zinc-topped bar is conveniently planted in the center, surrounded by chic backless bar stools where trendy locals sip a wide range of premium drafts or the small but curated collection of classic cocktails.

Candlelight and dark leather couches set to one side create a romantic tone built for lounging and chatting over fine wines, overseen by the old photos of Holland Park Avenue and Ladbroke Grove that hang on the walls.

The dining area, which overlooks a charming backyard garden, features tasseled lanterns, black-and-white art nouveau wallpaper, and red leather booths, and bustles with composed families, mature urbanites, and a big after-work crowd from the BBC offices a mile away.

Seasonal English eats like roast duck, lamb, and pies dominate the menu, though there are also few international touches like Italian vitello, a Spanish charcuterie board, and butternut squash ravioli.

Prices are the norm for the area – £15+ for most entrées – but anyone in the mood for a relaxed atmosphere will find a laissez-faire vibe to go with their luscious fare at The Mitre.
