If ever a bar represented the changing demographics of W11 from the 1950s to present day, here it is. Rum Kitchen takes the spirit of the Caribbean and repackages it for the new residents of Notting Hill. The ground-floor restaurant is lined in driftwood-type boards which probably washed up in an architectural salvage yard somewhere off the Westway. A dedicated rum bar is housed in a basement. Within is a stock of pirate’s piss plentiful enough to keep an armada jolly on grog for a whole campaign. The impressive selection encompasses everything from knock-it-back ration standards to single-estate rarities. Euan Ferguson
