I went here for Sunday lunch with family and I couldn't fault the place. Lovely location right on the canal, it was a sunny day so the canvas windows were rolled up so it was open and you can watch the narrow boats going by. We had oysters which were very fresh and tasty, followed by lobster (also very good)... More

Faced with finding a good restaurant in the vicinity of Paddington station (a somewhat worrying challenge), I was pleased to find The Summerhouse only 15 minutes walk away, located on the canal by Little Venice. Good service, enjoyed the clam chowder and my main course: Papardelle, field mushrooms, pine nuts, parmesan shavings & truffle oil. Not cheap but nice touches... More

This restaurant is tucked away so no doubt relies on repeat business. The warm welcome, friendly service and good food with a Little Venice canal view, no doubt contributes to the buzzy atmosphere. This was our second visit so the recipe works.

We discovered this canal-side restaurant back in 2010. Its great on a lazy weekend afternoon for lunch where you can enjoy good, fresh food in a lovely setting. The Summerhouse is a short walk from Warwick Avenue tube. We weren't planning on going out for dinner but found ourselves hungry in Maida Vale/Little Venice at 8pm on a Friday. We... More

By the canal in the Little Venice area of the Paddington Basin. Friendly welcome from all members of staff, and great service from our waiter. Simple mainly fish based menu of great food, excellent non-alcoholic cocktails and wines.

I had been to the Summerhouse before for a similar event- a group of students celebrating the end of term; I remembered it fondly, so booked again. This time was even better; professional and friendly service; table looking onto the canal; really intimate and friendly ambience. The food was great, my calamari crisp and tasty; my steak tender; the wine... More

Went here last Saturday evening and had a table by the canal. The restaurant was busy but service was very attentive and swift. I had fish cakes x 2 which were delightful and full of fish. Recommended.

Went here for lunch with work collegues - this restaurant is 10 mins walk from Paddington station along the beautiful canal and very easy to find. Staff were very observant and helpful and cheerful - service was good and quick, considering there was 8 in a party they managed to get us all served within 20 mins of sitting down.... More

Thank you for your kind review. We will be addressing the Gin and Tonic with our Bars Manager as you should have had a large measure with good wedge of lime, twisted nicely - thank you for the feedback More
