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.

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…

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

"A most enjoyable experience given we were seated outside in bright but chilly weather! Sam and staff are making a real effort to build customer loyalty having only had a few months trading from the Hammersmith riverside location before Lockdown One and, as a new business, unable to secure any financial help from the Treasury! Superb parmessan churos, lobster bisque and lamb fillet for me. Beef Tartare and Lobster for Mrs M. Quite dear but you are paying for the stunning location. We will be back!"
