It’s that time of year when leaves on the track might leave you stranded in London after work with a few hours to kill, and conveniently around the corner from Kings Cross station you will find the perfect place to spend an evening, with some of the most lucious libations to warm your cockles this…

The Devil's Darling - London Bar Review

The Devil's Darling - London Bar Review

The one thing Londoner’s can never say is that they’re not spoilt for choice. Hundreds of restaurants, thousands of bars, about a million branches of Pret. So when we were faced with a 4 drink cocktail menu at The Devil’s Darling in the Napoleon Hotel, we were able to spend more time…

Oslo Hackney - London Restaurant Bar Review

Oslo Hackney - London Restaurant Bar Review

Just a few steps from Hackney Central station is Oslo, the Nordic restaurant, bar, live music venue and club that's famous around East London for its relaxed, fun-loving day times and its party atmosphere come the night. Hearing good things about their Nordic menu, I hopped on the Overground to see if…

Scout Shoreditch - London Bar Review

Scout Shoreditch - London Bar Review

London has never been shy when it comes to culture or creativity. That said, Scout in Shoreditch takes this to new levels, pushing any and every boundary it can see; after all, have you ever heard of a London cocktail bar that exclusively pays homage to the best of Britain’s seasonal produce and…

The Dickens Inn - London Pub Review

The Dickens Inn - London Pub Review

St Katherine’s Docks is the perfect mix of new and old London, and home to some of the most picturesque views in The City; with Oliver Twist style cobbled streets and beautiful alley ways that lead to crooked high beam houses, all circulating around the well kept docks that home boats of all sizes…

Spread Eagle Camden - London Pub Review

Spread Eagle Camden - London Pub Review

As a country gal at heart, I love nothing more than a good, proper British pub, but it's hard not to become... accustomed to a certain gastro lifestyle after living in London for so long. Good job that there's pubs like the Spread Eagle just off Camden High Street, which meets in the middle between relaxed…

Venn St. Records - London Bar Review

Venn St. Records - London Bar Review

We all know that you’re never far from a great drinking hole in Clapham, but on one street in particular you’ll find a great spot offering one of the best daily Happy Hour deals in SW4. We decided to find out why Venn St. Records can’t keep ‘em away. The Venue and AtmosphereOne…

Le Bar Farringdon - London Bar Review

Le Bar Farringdon - London Bar Review

On a miserable, rainy day in London, it’s pretty hard to avoid dreams of a warmer climate. For me, I take my mind to warm, sleepy villages in the South of France, and have discovered that to get me that little bit closer, I can match the fantasy with a meal at Le Bar: the new venue of iconic Michelin…

The Hope Farringdon - London Restaurant Review

The Hope Farringdon - London Restaurant Review

For me, Farringdon is old London. Proper cobbled street, old crooked building, a history that goes back centuries. The presence of Smithfield Market, which seems rugged and real in its very architecture, is like the beating heart of the area. Food is such a prominent feature in an area like this. And…

Kanada Ya Piccadilly - London Restaurant Review

Kanada Ya Piccadilly - London Restaurant Review

They say the best kind of PR a restaurant can hope to get is a constant and steady queue of people outside. Humans are an inquisitive race and nothing evokes FOMO quite like a queue. If people are willing to wait in the cold for a meal, it must be good, right? In the case of Kanada Ya, yes, very right…

We tried out the Mar-tea-Ni Masterclass with Christabel's

We tried out the Mar-tea-Ni Masterclass with Christabel's

Some restaurants can be found in basements, some bars are found on rooftops. Some cafes are located in the middle of parks and some pubs can be found on boats on the Thames. The cocktail masterclass I attended last week was in an apartment. The nicest, most elegantly decorated apartment I’ve probably…

Below The Cut - London Bar and Brunch Review

Below The Cut - London Bar and Brunch Review

It’s a sunny afternoon in Fulham and a heavy Friday night induced hangover has got us craving ALL the food. Luckily Hanger SW6 has the perfect antidote: a juicy steak brunch with bottomless bubbles. The Venue Hanger SW6 is a place with the best kind of split personality. Upstairs is bright…
