30% cheaper than a Hammersmith taxi - That’s Addison Lee

A Local’s Guide to Hammersmith

Situated right by the River Thames, Hammersmith is home to an excellent range of cafés and restaurants and offers leafy, picturesque walks along the riverside, a delightful weekly farmers market as well as some classy drinking spots.

Expect a wealth of cuisine and fresh food produce from Hammersmith’s Farmers Market every Thursday and Friday on Lyric Square. From flavoursome authentic Caribbean dishes to delicious handmade pasta, this weekly food market attracts hundreds of people from across the city looking to upgrade their lunch game.

If brunching is your thing, head over to independent cafe Truth for a diverse selection of delicious brunch options from avocado toast to their posh breakfast sandwich. Another popular weekend spot is wine bar La Cave, serving croque monsieur or three variations of poached eggs alongside the option of an espresso martini or two. Alternatively, if you need a sweet treat, Patisserie Saint-Anne is the go-to for all your French fancies, buttery pastries and moreish macaroons.

If you fancy hitting the shops for the day, Westfield’s Shepherds Bush is less than a 10-minute ride away. Book a car with Addison Lee for a spot of retail therapy. Struggling to find a Hammersmith taxi? Try booking a minicab with Addison Lee instead.
