For stacked burgers with views over Grand Union Canal, head over to the industrial-style Lockhouse. The warehouse-inspired space is perfect for easy all-day dining, from weekend brunches (the duck benedict gets our vote) through to after-work cocktails.
The Little Venice Guide: Top Bars, Pubs and Restaurants in the Area
While the only similarity it may have with its namesake is being by a stretch of water, London's Little Venice has got plenty of its own British charm going on. Strolling distance from Paddington, the area is filled with cute pubs, date-perfect wine bars, and even a floating restaurant or two. So next time the sun is shining, or you fancy a stroll by a picturesque canal, head over to West London - and while you're at it, try our guide to the best pubs, bars and restaurants in the area.
THE spot for brunch near Little Venice, Darcie & May is a brightly coloured barge serving scrumptious breakfast plates. Meat-eaters can't go wrong with the Fancy Bacon Roll; a buttery paratha roti smothered in spicy hollondaise, spring onions and crispy bacon.
From the repurposed wine cellars through to the vaulted ceiling in the dining room, The Prince Alfred is one hell of a looker in Maida Vale. And it's not just quirky interiors; there's a cracking Sunday roast on offer too.
Pubs don't come much more gorgeous than The Hero Of Maida, the recently revamped boozer on Shirland Road. Complete with royal blue walls, framed prints, and a big wooden bar, the space is so cosy, you may just end up forgoing your month's rent and spending all your time here instead.
The pour-it-yourself wine bar has brought its unique concept to Paddington, a minute from Little Venice. Stop by after a long day for unusual bottles of plonk - which you can try using their card system - as well as outdoor seating by the canal come sunny days.
Making full use of its canal-side location, The Waterway has got two outdoor spaces to soak up any summer rays, including a large terrace. Nab a spot in the sun and tuck into seafood dishes, washed down with their choice of classic cocktails.
