It’s a small restaurant in Little Venice, on Blomfield Road (which runs parallel to the canal, opposite the visitor moorings that spread from Ha’Penny Bridge down to the old Toll House on the entrance to Browning’s Pool).
We’d spotted the restaurant months ago and promised ourselves we’d return. And, though we couldn’t quite conjour up a dry evening, a fine rain fell pretty much the whole time we were there, we were able to get a canalside table and with a glass or two of wine, good food, great company and the gas heaters warming the damp evening air, we had a wonderful evening.
In fact, it felt a little bit like being away (despite the fact that we were only a couple of miles from home!). The Summerhouse has that kind of ambience about it… as if it’s somewhere else – somewhere sunny.
