The Summerhouse is one of our favourite spots in London to while an afternoon, whatever the weather. With enviable canal-side views, the staff couldn’t be more attentive and don’t bat an eyelid if you turn up with the papers with the intention to work your way through the (heavenly) wine list. But this is a place to share with your nearest and dearest. Recognised as one of the best restaurants locally for seafood, whatever you order will undoubtedly impress (we found it to be one of the best fish dishes we’d eaten in a while combining succulent, flaky white cod with roasted vegetables and spicy lentils). Within walking distance of Paddington, a stone’s throw from Little Venice and a short taxi ride from Notting Hill, this is a no-brainer. Take Mum and Dad, the apple of your eye or rock up with the kids. As we said, all are welcome here.
