The Champion, Notting Hill

The Champion is a typical Notting Hill boozer.  Seating consists of worn leather sofas and stools and mismatched dining chairs.  It's an occasional venue for post-work drinks and one Friday we decided to eat there.

The classic burger with chips was the favourite choice, with one of us choosing the steak sandwich and the vegetarian selecting the hot falafel in flatbread.  Everyone was impressed.  The burger was good quality and the whole meal tasted hot and fresh, unlike a lot of pub food.  To me, the veggie option looked a bit thin but apparently it was tasty and the steak went down very well.  The bar staff can be a bit sharp but as a place for a bite and a few drinks, it would be hard to beat.
