Charlotte’s W5 have thrown away the rulebook on conventional dining and created a ‘third place’ for you to hang out. Community, quality, and great British food are what this new West London hub is all about…

What to Expect?

Open from 8am ‘til late, Charlotte’s W5 offers something for everyone at any time of day. Housed in a stunning renovated old stable block, it feels spacious yet intimate and has a buzzing atmosphere. Charlotte’s W5 are hot on making the most of the quality ingredients they use, so no food is wasted – pork belly offcuts are crafted into Crispy Pig Balls, while if you miss the Fennel Beignet tasters, you’ll find them alongside the Rabbit Ragu and Linguine. Even the menus are made out of potato skinsCharlotte’s, we salute you.

What to Eat

Where to start…thankfully Charlotte’s W5 offers most dishes as a taster, small or large plate, so perfect for sharing (and avoiding food envy). For something light and fresh try the Octopus, Confit Egg Yolk, Bottarga & Crispy Squid or the Burrata, Butternut Squash Salad, Pine Nuts & Sage.

If you’re after fish, the Sea Bream, Truffled Coco Beans & Jerusalem Artichoke is exquisite, while meat-lovers should try the richly flavoursome Pork Belly, Carrot, Anise & Cheek Fritter and the tender Lamb Breast, Basil Curd, Shallot Puree & Cavalo Nero. The Bread & Butter Pudding with Ealing Honey Fudge is heavenly and oh so moreish.

What to Drink?

Charlotte’s W5 boasts a 50 page drinks menu, or ‘bar book’ (these guys take their drink seriously) and there are some pretty creative concoctions on the cocktail menu. Beetroot and cream can’t claim to be well-known drinking partners, but a Beetroots Manuva will soon have you singing their praises, or try the Ugly, Slick and Dapper for a tasty surprise (hint: sweet balsamic vinegar features). Gin lovers will rejoice at the extensive list of craft gins – you won’t find Gordons on here – and the wine list is interesting and varied.

Don’t Miss

The Truffle and Artichoke Risotto was a hands-down winner – richly flavoured, indulgent, and just the best risotto we’ve eaten for a while. A small plate is more than enough; or why not try the Truffle Arancini and Artichoke Puree taster plate, a clever twist on the main risotto dish.

Best for…

Whatever you’re after! Whether you’re tapping away on a laptop all day, catching up with friends over lunch, or going all out (a ‘let’s try every cocktail on the menu’ night), you’ll be well-catered for. Charlotte’s maintains a focus on quality, innovation, and the finer details which make the greatest difference.
