Unlike some of the nine-day wonders that have popped up in the capital of late, The Summerhouse aims to be around for six months (from Easter until October). Dreamily located by the banks of Little Venice, just a skip from its permanent sister The Waterway, this breezy newcomer sports a blue & white striped nautical theme with sunny echoes of a Long Island beachside retreat. Seafood is the main culinary event, with transatlantic favourites including New England clam chowder, popcorn shrimps with sweet chilli sauce & swordfish steak alongside fish pie, mussels & halibut with béarnaise sauce. To finish, it has to be knickerbocker glory or Pimm’s jelly. Drinks include international wines & seasonal refreshers such as the Waterside Cooler (Havana rum, lime juice & orange liqueur topped up with ginger beer). The Summerhouse has its own moorings, if you fancy turning up by boat.
