Kensington Place launch new pop-up diner

A fan of both fish and pop-ups – aka roving restaurants that allow chefs to get creative?

Then check out FISHBone – Kensington Place’s pop up diner – which opened its doors yesterday. Yes one of our favourite fish brasseries has transformed its private dining room, for two months only, into FISHBone.


A stone’s throw from Notting Hill tube station, FISHBone is offering a unique fish and seafood spin on the ‘gourmet fast-food’ trend. Seating only 36 diners, the small and intimate space boasts a large communal wooden table running through the centre of the room and at-window bar-style seating allowing diners to sit back and indulge in one of Haute Living’s favourite past-times: people-watching.

Vintage signs and posters adorn the white side walls, with seaside trinkets and old books tucked onto built-in, dimly-lit shelving.


Inspired by Kensington Place’s successful summer menu, FISHBone serves up a range of ‘fast-fish’ dishes created by head chef Dan Loftin, including the signature ‘Scallop-dog with brown shrimp and cucumber vierge’ and ‘Pulled skate bun with beurre noisette and capers’.


Meanwhile the pared-back drinks features a a savoury ‘Filthy Dirty Anchovy Martini’ as well as white wine sangria, hot and cold Sake and a small selection of British beers and spirits.


A unique addition to the West London dining scene, FISHBone is open Tuesday-Thursday (12noon-3pm; 6.30-10.30pm) and Friday-Saturday (12noon-3pm; 6.30-11pm).
