Notting Hill could be Britain’s best attempt at a tribute to Scandinavia – it’s the least grubby of London’s neighbourhoods, and has lots of tiny colourful houses too. Just like Scandinavia then. Snaps + Rye is as Scandinavian as Scandinavian can be - thick rugs on chairs, maps of Copenhagen along the walls, and simple but stylish cooking. The food is classically Danish with lots of beautifully prepared fish and meat packed full of hearty flavours, and all balanced really nicely with fresh herbs or pickled vegetables. And of course there’s homemade rye bread. Snaps + Rye is open all day and it’s perfect for a light lunch if you’re in the area, although make sure to book ahead at weekends when it gets busy. Their set menus generally make for a very good evening meal, and with five courses coming in at £38 from Thursday to Saturday evening, it’s decent value too.
