Taking waterside dining to the next level, Darcie & May Green is bringing you delicious dishes onboard a stunning barge boat. Head over to the Paddington Basin haunt for a host of Australian-inspired bites (you must try their award-winning banana bread sandwiches) and summery cocktails.

The Dove is steeped in history. Since it first opened in the 17th century, this Hammersmith watering hole has garnered quite the name for its great atmosphere, cask ales, crowd-pleasing grub and cosy decor, as well as its riverside beer garden.

Barge House

We cannot get enough of East London's Barge House. The restaurant by Regent's Canal is only metres away from the water, with retractable glass doors allowing for eating outside during the summer months. As for food? You've probably seen their signature brunch, breakfast in bread, all over Instagram, but their seasonal menus are also worthy of a shout out.
