Situated right on the canal, this is the perfect spot for any diner who loves great food with a great view. Dive into a variety of dishes all year round, from fresh salads and zesty cocktails in summer to seasonal comforts and rich mulled wine in winter. A secret in the city, come see for yourself.

Farewell summer, we've had a good run, and not in the least thanks to The Summerhouse - the grown-up sibling of the long time Little Venice favourite Waterway. With better food, yacht club inspired design and (sometimes) better service. It's location right on the canal gives The Summerhouse a real holiday vibe. We went three times over the summer. Thanks to the rarely seen heat wave(s), the window panes were down every time. Twice we were lucky enough to grab a table by the window, so could almost touch the water. Seeing ducks glide past against the backdrop of narrow boats just across the canal, all as you sip on your glass of Sauv Blanc is a joy that makes one oversee the shortcomings. To be fair, the first time we went (quiet lunchtime mid week) there were none. The food was great and the service attentive and the Super Healthy Salad (pictured here) firmly established itself as my favourite. The other two times round, however, we made the mistake of going for end of week dinners. The food was still mostly very good but the service stumbled. We've drawn conclusions. Lunch it is. All in all, I'm definitely putting The Summerhouse on my summer favourites list. Just please, please Mr (Mrs?) Restaurant Manager, could you get rid of those breadsticks on the tables? I haven't seen those in a restaurant of your standing since the 80s yet the Summerhouse serves them up proudly as a bread substitute. And do you really need my credit card details straight up at the time of booking a quiet midweek lunch? It's not like The Summerhouse is a Michelin starred affair with one sitting and 10 covers. Otherwise, good job!

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague at work and what a beautiful discovery! The location is romantic on Venice Canal, you dine al fresco in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Must go if you like seafood and fish which obviously are the specialities of the house but there is a meat option as well. Very good choice on a summer evening to chill in London! Not a bank breaker and very good wine.

The summerhouse is on the canal in Warwick Avenue and is lovely in the summer for lunch or dinner.


Great service and the food was good too. Just a little pricey but all in all not a bad meal out!
