We have been here several times and it is unusual in one sense - there is very little turnover of staff. That makes for a special welcome and a very comfortable feeling of being 'at home'. The food is excellent although the range of choice is limited but I have yet to eat anything here that I would not be... More

This casual-chic joint offers a good-spirited atmosphere and good service. One pleasant thing we note is that although it was rather full it was not noisy at all; which we value. The wine selection and the sea food was all fine but the pawn-cocktail could be much better, thus 4 star.

we visited the Summerhouse Restaurant in Blomfield Road, London on Friday 25th November 2016 - this was our second visit and the meal was excellent. The restaurant specializes in fish dishes

I had a wonderful meal and evening with friend here, but was left extremely disappointed, frustrated and scared with the so called taxi service they called me. I asked yto call a cab and was left with a no name service who had no idea of direction, tried to get my credit card details and left me on the side... More

Excellent venue for a tea retreat on a rainy day in Little Venice. The tea and cakes hit the spot. The location on the canal is unbeatable.

Been dining at the Summerhouse on Valentines day months ago with my wife, but this time I came with family just for drinks and deserts. It's a lovely canalside restaurant, very warm and cosy and it's my go for place for romance and good seafood in London. George the manager was very accommodating and helped to pamper my in-laws to...

We had a great dinner at the Summerhouse... both the seafood & the atmosphere was terrific! Busy but not so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation. Service was a bit lacking the night we were there (and it could have been just our server). Jus slow to place any order (food or drink) and had to flag down... More

Second visit here and very impressive menu. We had a fabulous bottle of wine - red - unfortunately I can't remember the name. Scallops were perfect followed by .monkfish and then rice pudding with coconut. Others had the fishcakes and knickerbocker glory. One veggie had the risotto which he said was ok and would have liked more choices. However this... More
