Looking at the place from the other side of the canal you'd possibly walk on by thinking it wasn't up to much. It is adjacent to the canal. In February one could forgive the owners for not opening up the coverings - in Spring/Summer/Autumn I suspect the covers are off. Superb location. Food was good. We had the Eggs Benedict... More

Thank you for your review we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your brunch. You will have to return in the warmer months when we open up the covers onto the canal as it is still a bit chilly to do that now. More

We phoned to see if it was possible to turn up at short notice for a quick lunch. We were with our daughter who was getting married the following day. They were very friendly and seated us at a wonderful table right overlooking the canal. They also presented Becky with a glass of Champagne - which was a very warm... More

We ate dinner here on a Sunday night, a walk away from the hotel we were staying in overnight. The restaurant wasn't busy as we ate after the Sunday afternoon rush, we both had ribeye steak which were nice, washed down with a couple of bottles of wine. The prices were average London prices nothing too steep. The staff were... More

My wife & I visited here after a walk around Little Venice. Great outlook over the canal as you sip your drinks (we didn't eat here but the menu looked good) - in our case watching the snow fall outside. I sampled the Anchor Steam US craft beer - very good indeed & they have an extensive list of beers,... More

Good food, great environment... it is amazing during the Summer! During the last visit, i ordered cod. It was nice, but the piece I got was not the greatest. Fish & Chips looked really nice. We loved the desserts - bayleys cheesecake and sticky dates pudding. The service was extremely low. We had to chase the food at least twice...... More

We had eaten lunch at the nearby Waterway restaurant and had had a positive experience with great well priced food and excellent service and so thought we would try The Summerhouse too. There were only two other diners in the sun-filled room at lunchtime on a Tuesday in late January when we arrived. We were seated by the maitre d'... More

Sitting on a platform (or a barge?) on the Grand Union Canal, just before it flows into the Paddington harbour, the Summerhouse is small but lovely. We had lunch on a sunny winter day, but the veranda can be opened and it must be absolutely beautiful in summer. The cuisine is mainly based on fish, in style with the setting,... More

Stopped by for Saturday brunch at this attractive canal side restaurant. The menu was limited but enjoyed our french toast with maple syrup and bananas and granola with greek yoghurt and fruit compote. With coffee, tea and service charge the bill came to £19.58.
