The finds here are beautifully restored and the owners, brothers Marc and Kevin Weaver, take special care with the display of each object. It’s not about period, it’s more about how well things go together in a space—and their displays, almost like vignettes, are both inspiring and stunning. Every few months, Guinevere changes its windows and those alone are worth the visit.
The River Café
Thames Wharf, Rainville Rd., Fulham
The River Café hardly needs an introduction. Serving unmatched Italian since 1987, it is a landmark among restaurants everywhere. They've always been known for their simple, seasonal fare, and the location right along the Thames makes it the perfect spot on a sunny day for Sunday lunch or a special dinner. There's also a private room just off the main dining room that seats up to 18 (fitted out with the Café's signature hot pink rug, and minimal tabletop), which makes an ideal venue for an occasion. You'll definitely want to try something that's been cooked to perfection in their pink wood-fired oven, which has been the central focal point of the restaurant since its renovation, undertaken under the watchful eye of architect (chef Ruth Rogers' husband) Lord Richard Rogers.
The Harwood Arms
Walham Grove, SW6 1QP, Fulham
Exceptional gastropub fare with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients and wild game (one of the chefs actually shoots his own venison) are big draws here. Full meals can get a bit pricey, but it's also a great for a pint (they have quiz night on Tuesday) and a ridiculously good Scotch egg.
