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

We have eaten at The Summerhouse before, but this time it was just my daughter treating me to a Mother's Day supper. The restaurant was quieter than in the warmer sunny months, but it still had a lovely ambience, with overhead heaters and thoughtfully provided rugs just in case! The odd passing barge and quacking duck added to the atmosphere.... More

Came with a friend. The atmosphere and ambience were lovely, intimate and cosy. Open kitchen so you can see the chefs at work. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Food was lovely. I had the clam chowder for starters and the lemon sole for mains which were cooked to perfection. The pecan pie For desert finished off the meal nicely. Didn't... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is really nice!! Nicely located next to the river and the interior is very cosy. The food was good but not amazing.
