“A wonderful addition to this part of London” – Sam Harrison’s “sparkling” recent arrival (it opened in late 2019) is a real “class act”. “Beautifully designed” for somewhere outside the centre of town, it sits at the back of the newly revamped Riverside Studios, with Hammersmith Bridge in the background and a cute covered terrace to the side. The deluxe brasserie fare is “carefully sourced” and “intelligently cooked” but it’s the all-round experience created, not least, by the unusually “genuine and warm welcome” that seals the “fun atmosphere”, and which makes it “a great choice for a special night out”. “It just puts a smile on my face...”

Summary

Facing the Thames with views of (currently closed and hence very tranquil) Hammersmith Bridge, this October 2019 opening provides an all-day, 90-cover brasserie locals hope will prove a long-needed cheaper alternative to another river café five minutes walk away. It’s the brainchild of Sam Harrison, who for years ran long-RIP Chiswick favourite, Sam’s Brasserie.

Summary

Restaurateur Sam Harrison – who owned neighbourhood favourites Sam’s Brasserie in Chiswick and Harrison’s in Balham, until both sites were sold to Foxlow in 2015 – has announced plans to open a new restaurant and bar in February 2019 as part of the rebuilt Riverside Studios. Facing the Thames with views of Hammersmith Bridge, the all-day, 90-cover brasserie will have an outdoor terrace and private dining room, and will provide W6 with a long-needed cheaper alternative to another river café five minutes walk away…
