Where do Strand on the Green locals go?


Great on a summer's evening with outdoor dining, Annie's is close to the Thames and serves reasonably priced food.

The City Barge

Best pub in Chiswick for food, atmosphere, beer and views that look straight out onto the Thames. There is a hilarious quiz that takes place on a Wednesday and the soft shell crab burger is something else!


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!

The Smokehouse

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

Grove Park Deli

The most amazing selection of deli foods and probably the best sausage rolls in the world!


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

Watermans Art Centre

Watermans is to West London what the National Theatre is to Central London; theatre, independent cinema and a great children's theatre.

There is no better place than Oliver's in Kew for a guilt free treat! (They have guilty ones too if that's what you are after...)

The Old Stationhouse

Ant and Dec's local and right by Chiswick Station, this pub serves fantastic food!

The Glasshouse

Exceptional Michelin star restaurant serving this delicious lamb amongst other dishes!

Kew Village

Fancy a coffee? A slice of cake? A sausage sandwich? Do you need a last minute present for a girlfriend? Or do you just need a post office or access to the District Line....? Head to Kew Village. There is something for everyone!

Kew Gardens Hotel

Delicious food and a quirky interior makes this gastro pub a great choice every time. Grab a private booth, lounge on a sofa or hide up on the mezzanine.

Enjoy a day out all through the year in these beautiful gardens. Make sure you check out the Victorian glasshouse, which is the largest surviving structure of its type in the world.
