Blogger Blast at Bumpkin Notting Hill

When I was invited to be one of the first guests in London to try the Summer Menu at Bumpkin Notting Hill, I was ecstatic! Wouldn’t you be?Bumpkin Notting Hill

With 4 locations in London, it’s tough not to know about these restaurants focused on seasonal, authentic British food. Well, if you haven’t heard of them, it’s a good thing we bumped in to each other!  I can fill you in on their hot summer selections!

I arrived with 5 other fabulous London bloggers. Selena the Places, Kings Road Rocks, Love and London, Adventures of a London Kiwi and Urban Pixxels. Through the past few months I’ve developed personal friendships with them, so I knew the night would be a blast!

We started with a tour of the restaurant. I had no idea they had so many different rooms upstairs from the main dining area!

We actually didn’t even get to see all the rooms because they were already in use for private parties. This one was my favourite…

Can you say, ‘Time for dinner!’ or ‘Hey, does anyone know what time we’re eating?’ or ‘Should we pass food clockwise?’ hee hee. I’ll stop with the silliness now. 😉

A place card greeted each of us at our seat. Check it out…

Then the drinks started flowing.

Now back to the drinks. We had fresh mixed berry lemonade. The second was a cocktail that blended Blackberry Lynchburg lemonade, muddled blackberries, Jack Daniels, lemon crushed ice and soda. With my Starter and Dinner, I had a glass of Gnarly Head Vintage 2011Old Vine Zin and an Australian Circa Shiraz Viognier. They beautifully complimented the food.

For my Starter, I selected the Pan Seared Scottish King Scallops, Chilled Pea Soup and Crispy Bacon.

The scallops were definitely fit for royalty! They were cooked perfectly and flavoured beautifully.

Next, I chose the Roast Southdowns Lamb Rump, Baked Heritage Carrots and Spinach.

I followed these two courses with a dessert.

Other Summery desserts on their new menu are: Strawberries and Cream, Madeleine’s and a Pot of Chocolate or Baked Vanilla Custard, Poached Rhubarb and Hazelnut Crumble.

For our three and a half hour food affair there was tons of other food floating around the table. Here’s a peak at what some of the other bloggers consumed:

I truly fell in love with the Bumpkin Notting Hill experience. Well done, Executive Chef Raymond Fulton-Corrie!

They also have Bumpkin Healthy Options included, as well as guilt free dishes, vegan and gluten-free, and hydraulic cold-pressed juices.

Finally, Bumpkin has a World Cup Menu at Notting Hill, Chelsea, and South Kensington. It includes Sticky BBQ Ribs, Classic Fish and Chips or an Angus Beef Burger and Triple Cooked chips, washed down with 2 Pints of house lager for only £20. It’s available from 11am – 8pm weekdays, 12th June- 13th July in both the restaurant and private dining rooms.

  1. It was lovely to meet you last night in person. The Bumpkin interior is really lovely I like the way they have used different furnishings to change the mood of a room and the quirky features of a clock table and upside down umbrellas create interest. The food looks yummy too, seared scallops are a personal favourite.
