Brunch on the canal- The Summerhouse.
With such amazing weather as of recent, my home packed lunch wasn’t looking so tempting on my lunch break. As an avid lover of brunch, (because who really eats breakfast anymore?) I searched high and low in my local area and came across The Summerhouse near Warwick Avenue.
Off a quiet street and along the canal, the Summerhouse seemed the perfect brunch venue for views, relaxation and a touch of luxury.
The staff were extremely welcoming on arrival and the restaurant became busy very quickly, despite me being there at 11am. A reminder to always book ahead.
Despite being busy, the restaurant was serene and relaxing. It didn’t feel like I was in London at all.
The view was incredible. With ducks gliding by, the sun glistening off the canal water and boats idly passing, it was the perfect break from my busy workplace.
I ordered my brunch go to meal, eggs benedict with Parma ham, a mocktail and a croissant on the side.
The hollandaise sauce was rich and flavourful and the poached eggs, done to perfection. The star of the brunch for me however, was the fruit Collins’s which was a mix of lime juice, strawberry and pineapple over ice. It was so nice that the Swedish girls siting next to me couldn’t help but ask about it.
The brunch came to around £15 which I think was very reasonable considering the great view.
I will definitely try the Summerhouse again, and I’d love to try their full menu at night which boasts lobster, steak and all the luxurious foods I love. Plus a night time canal view and candlelights? I think a date night is pending.
You can check out their menu at http://www.summerhouse.co and book a table on open table.
