Fulham: A family-friendly location full of hidden gems

By Sophia Wood-Burgess

View latest articles


This West London location remains a firm favourite for working professionals, young families and those in search of a village feel just a stone’s throw away from central London. Not only can you expect an abundance of green spaces, good local schools and independent shops in Fulham, move to the area and you’ll have a dizzying range of options for food and drink.

Bradley Deadman, our Fulham Sales Manager, said:

Fulham offers the best of both worlds. A village feel with multiple green spaces, boutique coffee shops and traditional pubs whilst being within an easy commute of central London. Encompassed by the River, buyers are drawn to the beautiful tree lined streets with Victorian and Edwardian houses that have proven popular with young professionals and families. SW6 is renowned for its multiple leisure activities, whether it’s the weekend farmers market, a game of tennis or cheering on your favourite football team, there is something for everyone.

Thinking of renting in Fulham? We asked DesignMyNight to list the must-visit restaurants, bars and pubs in the area. From riverside drinks overlooking the Thames, to Sunday dinners on the Chelsea border, here is the ultimate venue guide spanning SW6 to SW10.

By DesignMyNight:

Cock Tavern

Situated a mere 5 minute walk from Fulham Broadway station is Cock Tavern. Dubbed as Fulham’s coolest hangout complete with cocktails and board games, this is the place to be whether you're in the market for after work drinks, tasty plates or Fulham’s best Sunday roast - you’ll have to trust us on that one. The kitchen experiments with new and exciting recipes and flavours on a daily basis, so you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy. From British classics such as the trusty sausage and mash to vegan and veggie options including the tasty Moving Mountains burger, this pub will soon become your new go-to when seeking great food and feel-good vibes.

The Tommy Tucker

Just moments away from the bustling Eel Brook Common is The Tommy Tucker, a Fulham gastropub brought to life by the team behind Amuse Bouche and Claude’s Kitchen. A must-visit for a great meal in Fulham, The Tommy Tucker aims to 'bridge flavoursome street food pizazz with Claude’s Michelin kitchen experience'. Get your phones at the ready - plates here are as pretty as the interiors, and menu highlights include the likes of miso black cod with chilli and ginger choy sum, and the venison burger with pickled red cabbage. Be sure to save room for their infamous cheese plate, and pair with a Pecorino Torre Zambra Madia from the downstairs wine cellar.

The Chelsea Ram

Rightly titled SW10’s best kept secret, The Chelsea Ram is a charming pub nestled away on the back streets of Chelsea near Stamford Bridge. Boasting a warm and inviting atmosphere, this is the perfect spot for a prosecco fuelled brunch, or to spend a laid back Sunday afternoon with friends. Enjoy a Sunday dinner from the five options of roasts available, or indulge in a baked Cornish camembert paired with a decadent red from their expansive wine offering. Feeling competitive? Challenge your new neighbours on their trivia knowledge at a midweek quiz night - winners are rewarded with a £50 bar tab.

Kona Kai

Those who have recently moved to Fulham will be in agreement that SW6 is an unrivalled area of London, but sometimes, you just need a holiday. In those times, head to Kona Kai - paradise by way of Fulham. With tiki decor, exoticcocktails and weekend DJ nights, Kona Kai embodies the vibes of a Polynesian beach bar right here on the Chelsea Fulham border. If the mango bango cocktails aren’t enough to draw you to the area, the affordable rental prices surely will be.

The Blue Boat

One of the main reasons people are drawn to Fulham is the close proximity to the Thames. This nautical-inspired pub sits directly overlooking the river, making it the ideal location for after work socials in summer, day drinking on the weekend and late night tipples when the urge to have ‘one more drink’ is on the table. Offering unparalleled views, a stellar food menu and craft beers on tap, The Blue Boat is the ultimate hangout - and will surely have all of your friends looking for their next property in Fulham.

The Little Blue Door

Celebrate your move to SW6 by attending London’s ultimate house party at The Little Blue Door. This quirky West London hangout serves the very best in food and cocktails and it’s open late throughout the week. Decked out as a cosy flat, this is the perfect place to get snap happy for the ‘gram, and indulge in a night of debauchery in one of London’s most talked about venues. The best part? When the parties are over, you can leave the post-party clean up to the bartenders and head home to your comfy Fulham home.

Address: 871 - 873 Fulham Road, London SW6 5HP
