ENJOY DINNER FOR TWO WITH A VIEW: Sam’s Riverside
Opened in Hammersmith at the end of last year, Sam’s Riverside is a contemporary spot for dinner with a remarkable Thames view. Its three-course Valentine’s menu (£75pp) includes Carlingford oysters; celeriac, chestnut, mushroom and truffle wellington; and Kir-poached pear. You’ll also get a cocktail and canapés. Sam’s is next door to the newly reopened Riverside Studios, so you could even catch a film in gleaming, high-tech surrounds before or after dinner.
