Annie’s restaurant in Chiswick is a real gem, perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle of the high road, on the corner of the beautiful Magnolia road and almost directly opposite the river Thames. Annie’s restaurant has become somewhat of an Institution, drawing people in from all over London; if ambience, friendliness and Great food are up your alley, Annie’s will never disappoint
Lorraine Angliss is the woman behind the comfy décor, beautiful designs and scrumptious food. Having been a restaurateur for over 25 years Lorraine certainly knows a thing or two about how to run a great restaurant. Before setting up Annie’s Lorraine helped to run the Coconut Grove and even set up Sticky Fingers for Rolling Stone Bill Wyman!
Since its opening in Chiswick Annie’s has received much attention from here there and everywhere and even won ‘Chiswick’s best restaurant’, an award much deserved! Everything about Annie’s is welcoming and homely, it truly feels like your home away from home, the staff go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and happy. A true testament to their efforts lies in the story that was told to me by one of Annie’s loyal locals:
“Ever since Annie’s first opened round the corner from my house, I have been a regular, in all the eleven years I’ve been coming here, not once, have I had a bad meal. Annie’s is different from other restaurants, you truly feel as though it is your home, the staff are your friends and the customers all become incredibly sociable, I’ve made many a friend here and in my humble opinion there is no better place to be on a Friday night. I love Annie’s so much I once came here for Breakfast, Lunch and then Dinner, all in the same day! My favourite dish is the ‘Posh Kebabs. No the Gaspacho! No word of a lie, their gazpacho rivals that in Spain! And they bloody invented the stuff.” – Mark Fricker, Annie’s loyal since 2003
Well, the proof is in the Pudding as they say, and Annie’s has plenty a pudding selection to choose from, so go on! Get yourself down to Annie’s for an exquisite meal, beautiful surroundings and extremely friendly staff.
