Delicious food but a fairly expensive wine list. Service was OK when we were able to get the attention of our waitress. Otherwise happy to recommend this local restaurant

To greet us, a log fire, a friendly welcome and a lovely table by the window overlooking the canal, with plenty of heaters and rugs to turn this summary venue into a cosy winter experience. Candles and subtle lighting gave the restaurant a romantic feel if you were to be with the right person!

Not a large menu, but there were alternatives to the restaurant’s speciality: fish. However, the four of us all chose fish, which came with subtle, delicious sauces and beautifully cooked fresh vegetables.

Our bill would have been £40 a head including service, had we not taken advantage of the excellent value 30% discount offer. That was for a two course meal and wine, but the offer is not restricted to 2 courses.

A really delightful and unusual venue to take visitors from out of London, perhaps at it’s best in the summer, but I keep going back for the food and enjoy the cosy feel so cleverly achieved for the winter season.

In the last few months I have become a regular diner here. It has s great combination of ambience, service and food. The food is of average quality vs say Mayfair restaurants, but I do like the seafood which is fresh.

Also lovely service, attentive without being overbearing

Food and ambiance good however only went to take advantage of 30% January discount. On arrival I was told discount only applied to a la carte menu not fixed price menu or wine . As I was paying for a table of 4 it worked out a lot more than I thought . I also felt rather cheated .

This was a small birthday party and the evening went very well. Friendly, attentive staff who listened and helped us settle in. The food was fine, perhaps not very inspiring; the popcorn shrimp were truly delicious. The salad leaves with the smoked salmon were plain and not quite fresh-tasting.
The great thing about the Summerhouse is its location and warm, civilised ambiance, plus the exceptionally good staff. We have been to the Summerhouse many times and will continue to do so.

I searched for somewhere close to Paddington Station as was meeting up with family for Sunday breakfast. The setting is lovely, the staff very friendly, attentive and helpful.

Two of the breakfasts were lovely (French Toast & the Eggs Benedict however the other two were disappointing as the menu said crispy bacon but the bacon proved to be fatty, not crispy at all.

Our friends didn't want to make a fuss so only told us after we had left the Summerhouse which was a shame as maybe if we had sent it back the Chef could have made sure the bacon was crispy as stated on the Menu. Probably wouldnt return or recommend which is a shame.

The Summerhouse gave us a really lovely evening and the food was delicious - especially the beautifully cooked smoked haddock and ham hock. Looking around, everyone in the busy restaurant seemed to be happy and enjoying themselves - which is as much a sign of a good restaurant and good staff as anything else.
