Given the fact that Hammersmith is a major travel hub, it is unsurprising that you can explore the culinary world in a day with the area's restaurants. They feature a wide range of cuisines, from Keralite food (from an area in southern India) at Shilpa and eclectic vegetarian fare of The Gate to Saigon Saigon's Vietnamese and Polanka's Polish menus. Perhaps more surprising is how well priced it all is.

Venue says: Live music at The Hog on Saturday 28th February, 7pm-10pm. Blues and jazz sounds in the bar. Free entry.
The Hampshire Hog in Hammersmith sounds like the start of a tortuous tongue-twister, but it’s actually a ‘pub and pantry’, run by the team behind the Engineer gastropub in Primrose Hill.Read more
Venue says: Locals don’t come to Tosa for the sparkling setting – the dining room seems just a little lacklustre. Instead, friendly service and a decent range of sushi and skewers are the main draw.

Sophie's Steakhouse & Bar
The larger Covent Garden branch of Sophie's in Chelsea, with a nearly identical menu. The beef is all native breeds, and the rib for the Sunday roast comes from the 'family farm' in Oxfordshire. It is aged and butchered on the premises in a meat hanging room. One significant departure is the Theatre Menu, served at lunchtime, from 5-7pm, and after 10pm. A nice touch: £1 plus VAT from every meal is donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
