British, Modern Restaurants in Chiswick
1. No 197 Chiswick Fire Station British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 197-199 Chiswick High Road - W4
2018 Review: A “re-invention of the old fire station in Chiswick” – from neighbourhood bar chain Darwin & Wallace – “an open airy space, successfully divided into various differing areas”. Its Aussie-style menu generally produces “well thought-out” and “tasty” dishes, but although service is “friendly” its speed can be “very slack”.
2. The Duke of Sussex British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 75 South Pde - W4
A classic Victorian tavern by Acton Green Common with “lovely pub food you can rely on” from a Spanish tapas-style menu, served in a “beautiful dining room” at the rear, leading out to a small garden. As a bonus for local families, it’s notably “good with kids”.
3. Vinoteca British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 18 Devonshire Rd - W4
This modern take on the wine bar “sets the benchmark for an imaginative, indeed educational, wine list” – with “constantly surprising selections from far-flung places alongside the old-world classics”. There are “good choices by the glass, though prices can start quickly to move upwards”, and the “food is generally surprisingly good, with good-value set-lunch options”. The ultra-handily situated King’s Cross branch draws some flak for being “just too popular”, while branches in the City, Faringdon, Marylebone and Chiswick all have their fans. A new branch is scheduled to open by Borough Market in late 2021.
4. High Road Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 162-166 Chiswick High Rd - W4
Soho House seem to have forgotten about their all-day brasserie in a prominent spot on the Chiswick High Road – the most generous critic in our latest survey says it’s “unfortunately not as good as it was”. Others are much harsher: “pretentious and not worth the money”; “grabby on pricing”; “lazy, careless and very popular – go figure”.
5. The Silver Birch British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 142 Chiswick High Road - W4
“A brilliant addition to the neighbourhood” – this Chiswick site was formerly a branch of Brew (next to W4’s thriving Franco Manca), and, despite opening in tricky times (October 2020), wins enthusiastic local praise. The first solo project from Kimberley Hernandez (previously head chef at XU and Kym’s), it’s a relatively ambitious neighbourhood restaurant for this chain-filled high street, with “competent”, “flavoursome” modern European cooking.
6. The Roebuck British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 122 Chiswick High Rd - W4
This “spacious” late-Victorian tavern on Chiswick’s main drag is thriving under “very impressive new management” who have installed a new pizza kitchen and revived the “lovely garden” with a large covered terrace. “They took over just before the first lockdown and worked their socks off to get it right – and boy, have they succeeded” with its “honest and reliable” food offer.
7. Rock & Rose British, Modern restaurant in Chiswick 270-272 Chiswick High Road - W4
Restaurateur Lorraine Angliss (Annie's, Little Bird) opened a second site for her Rock & Rose restaurant concept in Spring 2022.
8. Megan's at the Flower Market British, Modern restaurant in Hounslow 214 Chiswick High Road - W4
With their very “pretty interiors” and “great brunch” – this “reliable chain” of “cheerful” all-day hang-outs has emerged completely undaunted from the pandemic, expanding beyond its south west London heartlands as far as Islington, Marlow and St Albans. With new openings scheduled for late 2021 in Dulwich and Richmond, the roll-out shows no sign of slowing down. They’re very “dog friendly” too.
