A short amble from the Thames, this long-standing Chiswick evergreen is big on quirkiness and romance, with its vintage rococo interiors, floral bouquets, twinkling fairy lights and flying cherubs on ornately framed mirrors. Families drop by early doors for breakfast and brunch, while the all-day menu brings eclectic brasserie-style options ranging from paella to sticky pork belly with Vietnamese salad. Cocktails and fairly priced wines go well with bar nibbles.
OCTOBER 2019: We’ve added Villa di Geggiano (a delicious slice of Tuscany on Chiswick High Road) and the Chiswick offshoot of Battersea’s Little Bird, as well as Tamp Coffee & Tapas and Annie’s, a local favourite famed for its romantic vibe and quirky decor.
