Having had to do a few errands in St Johns Wood and then settle down for lunch in this delightful part of Little Venice, certainly makes London seem the best of all worlds especially on a surprisingly sunny November's day. This very same location, so many years ago was in its previous and less salubrious form known as Jason's, and so it was quite a revelation to step into a bright and inspiring canal-side venue which reminds one more of San Francisco's Fishermans's wharf or other.
The decor at Summerhouse is ubiquitous with light wood and sea-faring trinkets and memorabilia, but not so much as to be overwhelming as just to bring enough interest and delight into what seemed to be the perfect waterside venue. There are rows of tables for two which are right by the canal whilst another part centres around an airier atrium-like area with bench seating to one side.
In keeping with a light lunch we had soup and mussels which were perfectly delivered, both the food and service, which incidentally was suitably unhurried for such a venue. A glass of red wine seemed to go rather well as the sunshine shone through much of the restaurant, making if feel a million miles away from any of the London bustle.
Afterwards, we strolled back to Maida Vale before eventually returning to more errands in St Johns Wood. Overall a definite one to revisit as a regular whenever one has the time to lunch in this delightful neighbourhood.
