Right.  Didn't expect that response.

The Mitre in Bayswater (not the one in Notting Hill), near Lancaster Gate 

I found mention that they serve food only from 12:00-15:00, but they 
served dinner when I was there late December of 2004.

Hm, they appear to have a cellar, "a splendid warren of small drinking
rooms".  I missed that.
