Where do South Acton locals go?

The Aeronaut

Arguably one of Ealing borough's most unique venues. Circus themed, they have circus performances on Friday and Saturday evenings and they even have their own microbrewery onsite. Definitely one of the best beer gardens in London and a lively, fun place to go for a few drinks after a long week!


Grab your morning coffee from here. The staff are really friendly and helpful and they even remember your name and the coffee you drink every day!


Delicious freshly prepared sushi and hot dishes perfect for lunch time. They also sell bubble tea and after 4pm, the food is 50% off!

Gunnersbury Triangle

Bounded by train tracks, this picturesque spot is a haven for wildlife. There's a trail that you can follow with information points, where you can learn all about the local species.

The Duke of Sussex

A rustic gastropub with a great beer garden and excellent food. It can be a bit of a minor celeb hangout too!

Natural Natural

Once it's past 5.30pm, all the fresh sushi goes half price - it's delicious! They also stock an array of Japanese food and drinks.

Ealing Lawn Tennis Club

Based in the heart of Ealing Common, this tennis club has grass, indoor, clay and Astro courts.

The Station House

A little gem located in the heart of Acton in Poet's Corner and a lovely place to go for a bite to eat - great selection of food and very tasty. The Sunday lunch is AMAZING! Really nice paved garden out front with lots of plants and they let dogs in too!


A Japanese fishmongers selling high-quality sushi and sashimi.

High Road Market

Every Saturday, the market hosts the best farmers, growers and street food traders London has to offer, bringing a wide range of cuisines from around the world.

Putt in the Park

A really fun course for all ages and only £8pp.

Jackson & Rye

Great food and a continental feel, as well as outside seating on Chiswick High Road.

The Smokehouse

The Korean pulled pork at The Smokehouse rocks! And you can order it as a side - genius!

The Grange

The food at The Grange is delicious. They also serve some scrumptious white wine and do an amazing pub quiz during the week! It's a great place to cosy up in the winter or excellent in the summer - their beer garden is particularly pretty.

The Grange

As well as the delightful garden, this pub's Thursday night quiz is legendary! It also serves great food and a range of different ales.
