Charlotte’s BIstro and Foubert’s ice-creamery near Turnham Green in London

Turnham Green is an underground station in West London. When heading into London (for tea and cake) I generally go to the same places – I know they’re good and it’s easy to direct someone to somewhere you know how to get to. I deviated from the plan this week and went to Turnham Green. It’s on the District line near Hammersmith, and I’m glad I did! Many very nice looking shops, restaurants, cafe’s pubs, and various other services. These two caught my eye – for very different reasons.

Charlotte’s Bistro is a buzzing restaurant open for lunch and dinner as well as wine and cocktails. But mainly because it has my name in the title I looked closer — I’ll be coming back to enjoy some drinks here another time.

Foubert’s is an Italian ice-creamery, and the building itself is just so striking — it can’t be missed. They boast twenty delicious flavours of ice-cream, and have been serving it since 1978. This is the second location of the ice-creamery, it used to be round the corner on Chiswick High Road — lucky for all the locals addicted to is ice cream it didn’t go far!

Not illustrated but equally lovely, i Found Gail’s ca and bakery and stopped in for a tea and to be tempted by cakes before dinner. It’s on a corner close to Turnham Green as well, and has tow massive windows perfect for people watching and letting the world go by.
