Great new Seafood restaurant. Cool decor and very modern. Lovely staff. As the name suggests some of the food is served in different size buckets. Great for sharing. Beautiful well thought out side dishes which were just as delicious as the mains. Beautiful Mussels in great sauce, best I've ever had. The Whitebait bucket was amazing. Great menu choices and really good value. Highly recommend for any age group. Will be definitely visiting again.
Nice seafood restaurant with very good cocktail list. They just launched this new menu couple weeks ago. We tried the spicy langoustine linguini and their crayfish and shrimp burger. Bother full of flavours. The linguini is quite spicy, the pasta was cooked to al dente but the langoustine’s texture was quite mushy which is a shame. Burger was with great flavour and seasoning. A nice place to go when you fancy seafood for a meal.
I still love this restaurant having become a regular since it opened.
Everyone I have bring here loves it too. So different to all other places one can go to in London.
Great buzz, very friendly staff who actually remember you and your likes!
I really like the seating especially the table for four, with the cushions and padding!
Bucket restaurant near Notting Hill is a short walk from the station and serves sustainably sourced seafood literally by the bucketload in a relaxed, friendly neighbourhood spot.
Cocktails are inventive at Bucket. We started with Zacapa Old Fashioned (£13.50) with Ron Zacapa, Pedro Ximenez, chocolate bitters and orange. This cut through the strength of this classic cocktail and gave it a lighter, refreshing taste. The Crozier (£8.50) with Zubrowka, passion fruit, strawberry was a more fruity and sweet number. We also opted to try the Seaweed martini (£11.50) Hendrick’s, St-Germain, seaweed, sea algae, cucumber. A hazy greenish tinge in colour with algae sat in the glass, it paired well with the seafood.
We started with the Seaweed and squid ink crackers (£4.50) – black, crunchy and tasting of the sea they make a great bar snack. The Tuna tartare (12.00) was next with pickled radish, avocado mayo and seaweed crisps. The tuna was incredibly tender and the spikes of flavour in the pickle worked well.
Ordering a bucket was a must and you can choose from whitebait, calamari, prawns or mussels. The latter appealed as there are a range of sauces to choose from. The portions are generous with a small bucket containing 800g of mussels. We tried the Mussels in lobster bisque with brandy (£14.50). The sauce was salty and rich and very moreish. We opted for a side salad of seaweed and cucumber (£6.50) to accompany this dish which delivered great flavour and freshness.
We also chose the Board of langoustines served with gremolata, courgettes and fries/salad) (£27). The boards include options of steak, whole sea bass and chicken. Whilst they are the pricier end of the menu the portions are generous, wonderfully presented and deliciously cooked and the fries were excellent. The langoustines were meaty and tender and we thoroughly enjoyed both mains.
We were recommended the Don Pedro usually served with vanilla ice cream, whisky and pecans (£9.00). The staff suggested changing the flavours to suit our tastes and we were given a chocolate ice cream with hazelnut liqueur mixed in with pecan topping. A very unusual dessert that was sufficiently sweet and boozy – a real hit. We also tried the Tarta del nonna (£5.00), which was a lemony cake. It was a little on the drier side than expected but had a lovely fresh zingy flavour.
Bucket restaurant near Notting Hill is a friendly spot serving up great seafood. The restaurant has friendly staff and an elegant beach shack vibe, with a stylish central bar for drinks and cosy seating with homely touches. We certainly think it ticks the boxes for a special occasion for any seafood lover and their lunch menu looks great (fish fingers sarnies!) – if you happen to work in the area too it is worth popping in. Finally,

Amazing seafood at Bucket, London.
Prawn, samphire & tomatoes to start. With a poached Salmon fillet salad, grilled aubergine, corn, garlic tomato & courgettes. Such a nice dinner 😍 Manager was very patient with telling me about ingredients too as I follow a strict eating regime👌🏾
But can't fault the food, decor and ambiance. Had a perfect date night
We took a small bucket of mussels with two side dishes and it was enough for two! Wine and cream mussels are great! Very cozy atmosphere and lemon on the table is just adorable :)
We had a very good time. Staff very friendly. Good Food , although mussels with cream really puzzles me, were very nice. Chocolate 🎂 top notch.
The buckets and "happy hour" oyster deal are very good. Great cocktails. Fresh sea food. Was a little disappointed on the "raw sampler" as if was very bland.
Now called Jack's Sprat! Lobster rolls, soft shell crab burgers, fish & chips and more. Awesome menu and good vibes. A hidden gem!
Great food! Especially mussels are amazing and come in a large bucket. Fabulous mocktail and lovely interiors
