GO AL FRESCO IN LITTLE VENICE
Rejoice: the season for summer popups has arrived. And none will be more summery than the 60-cover Summerhouse, on the banks of Little Venice’s canal. In keeping with a Hampton’s beach house theme, the menu will be full of American seafood dishes such as New England clam chowder, popcorn shrimp and prawn cocktail. Interiors will be light and airy – a decent refuge from the rain should it happen. Open until October. Opposite 60 Blomfield Road, W9 2PD, Tel: 020 7286 6752.
