Overlooking the Thames, with impressive views of Hammersmith Bridge from the Thames Path, Sam’s Riverside is set within the redeveloped Riverside Studios and features a large bar and private dining room. The restaurant is currently open outdoors for two lunch sittings and two in the evening, offering a large selection of oysters and seafood, and a modern European menu with a focus on Anglo-French dishes. Expect to sample the likes of cured wild sea bream with pink grapefruit, compressed cucumber and chilli dressing; Devon brill with rock samphire, kale, brown shrimp and hazelnut méuniere; and vanilla and buttermilk panna cotta with Yorkshire rhubarb and candied almonds.

Nutbourne is located on Ransomes Dock, near Battersea Park. The neighbourhood restaurant is part of the same group of restaurants from the Gladwin Brothers, who have Sussex, The Shed and Rabbit to their name, and who serve 'local and wild' cookery inspired by the philosophy of 'what grows together, goes together.' Nutbourne’s terrace is currently open to outdoor diners, where the team is serving seasonal signature menus including fire-roasted premium beef and pork from Sussex, weekend breakfast with bloody marys, and a best farm-to-fork Sunday roast with all the trimmings. Spring cocktails and English wine can also be enjoyed on the dockside terrace.

Joy at Portobello
Stevie Parle has reopened Joy at Portobello, his residency at Portobello Dock. Post-lockdown, Parle has pulled out all the stops, decorating the space with thousands of beautiful spring-blooming parrot tulips and launching a new seafood-focused menu, showcasing the finest produce from resident supplier The Goods Shed and its trusted Kentish fishmonger, as well as fresh Welsh catches from Lockdown Lobsters. The menu can be enjoyed al fresco in the picture-perfect glass greenhouse, one of the art-filled pavilions (which come with heaters) or out in the sunshine on a canal-side table.
