Countryside dining all wrapped up in luxurious trinkets and farmhouse glamour, The Counter is bringing Middle Eastern food back to the forefront of Notting Hill's eclectic dining scene.

Rustic and warm mixed with breath-taking contemporary design, The Counter is bold and imaginative. In accordance with its name, this eatery specialises in countertop dining which is anything but mundane. A gleaming marble countertop awaits eager diners and is sheltered by a magnificent, beautifully structured bar that forms a curve around the exposed kitchen. It is crowned, or course, by dozens of gleaming wine bottles and hanging cured meats that are getting tastier by the day. Expertly walking the tightrope between Notting Hill's love for all things fancy and the leafy charm of the British countryside, The Counter is the best of both worlds.

The menu heralds the art of Middle Eastern cooking. To begin, order in a mix of hot and cold mezze, all of which bring something new and exciting to the table. Take the chocolate babaganoush, the veal tongue with chimichurri dressing and the lamb liver skewers, all of which offer flavours hitherto unknown.

For the main event, welcome a world of rich stews, marinated meats and freshly baked bread. For drizzly grey days, opt for a beef cheek stew, for bold flavours try the minced lamb kebab and for some plant-based deliciousness, the vegetarian kebabs and mushroom borek are always a treat. No matter the occasion, you can always count on The Counter for a dining experience worth writing home about.
