Blue Boat

17 user reviews 4

Located right on the Thames in Hammersmith, The Blue Boat is inspired by the water it resides on. The West London restaurant has nautical interior decorations to really hone in on The Blue Boat namesake. Both their drink and food menus embody classic pub grub--plenty of brew and ale options and hearty meats with chips on the side. A West London restaurant with the comfort of a neighborhood pub at sea sounds like a no brainer.

Just off Fulham Road, Gordon Ramsay's Maze Grill Park Walk is churning out delicious all-day dining options. The casual space is all about high quality dishes, including aged steaks and bottomless brunches. Stop by on a Saturday afternoon for their sushi menu, which includes free-flowing prosecco and several courses of Japanese nosh.

The Porchester

70 user reviews 4

Based on Bishop's Bridge Road, the Porchester has become a favourite spot for locals living in West London. The pub certainly doesn't lack character. With brightly coloured beams connecting the floors to the ceiling and a handful of bright seats spread across the venue, the entire pub is balanced by simple, wooden floors and a similarly plain bar. Of course, as with most metropolitan pub, the food and drink served here is of the highest standards. Alongside the collection of cask ales and craft beers, the venue's talented chefs have curated a food menu of traditional recipes and gastro pub treats. Think heart roast dinners, perfectly cooked steaks and burgers fit to burst.

The Hero of Maida is a British gastropub serving up classic British and French cuisine as well as sumptuous Sunday roasts, with slow-braised lamb shoulder and 45-day aged Hereford sirloin stealing the show come the weekend.

This plush private members club is one of the best restaurants in Chelsea. Immaculately furnished from tip to toe, the venue offers a relaxed yet super stylish atmosphere in which to treat yourself.
