Built from reclaimed materials, including a giant eight-foot tractor bonnet, the Shed is the newest project from the Gladwin brothers, whose work to date includes the ever-popular Brawn in London's Shoreditch. Gregory Gladwin supplies the Notting Hill restaurant with produce from his family farm at Nutbourne, West Sussex. Accordingly, the menu emphasises seasonal and foraged food. Chef Oliver Gladwin, who trained with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall at the River Cottage, presents food on large platters, which are then led in theatrical procession through the restaurant to their destination. Guests sit at a carefully curated selection of reclaimed furniture, including giant barrels used for transporting orange juice from Brazil (now repurposed as tables). At the back, the Butcher's Table, seating up to 14, provides a more interactive experience.
