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.

One of the most open parks in Ealing - a great place to have a picnic, go for a run or play sports.

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!

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

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

The Rose & Crown
A cute little pub tucked away off St Mary's Road. It does brilliant bangers and mash, plus it has a lovely beer garden. Very good pub all and all.

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

The Red Lion
Great selection of beers and food in a traditional pub with a 'secret garden' out back. Sunday is Pieminster Day, where you can choose between a roast dinner or a selection of pies.

Delicious Vietnamese food to eat in or takeaway. Try the banh mi - tasty baguettes with a range of fillings and hot sauce.
