our story

At The Common, we aim to create a dialogue and a community, through simple, well-sourced, food and drink that is exciting, yet affordable and always evolving. Sustainability, the seasons, the tastes of chefs and guests; this is what makes our menu, which is redesigned around our lives as we go. We want to create an environment where guests refocus on what matters most. That’s why we’re bringing people together around the table through delicious food and drink!

Leading the kitchen is our new Head Chef and co-founder, Ian Ballantyne, who brings a lot of love and joy into the kitchen alongside a wealth of experience.

Ian, Luis & Hugo and the team are meticulously managing the kitchen and dining experience, to create a place that is simple, sharing, evolving. With close to 20 years’ experience in the industry the Cult team bring invaluable skills and knowledge to the table…ultimately, “it’s about building a community, having a positive impact on the local area and being a part of something different through food & drink…if we happen to put Willesden Junction on the foodie map, so be it!”
