Polpo Covent Garden - London Restaurant Review

Polpo Covent Garden - London Restaurant Review Tucked away off the back streets of Covent Garden's crowded marketplace lies a rustic Venetian hideaway, Polpo.

Zona N16 Stoke Newington - London Brunch Review

Zona N16 Stoke Newington - London Brunch Review Those who know me well will say that brunch is my first true love - and it's true, brunch and I have been in an intimate relationship for a while now.

Patch East - London Bar Review

Patch East - London Bar Review Generally sticking to the likes of Shoreditch and Peckham, I will admit that the City bar scene and I are not very well acquainted.

Ray's Bar Dalston - London Bar Review

Ray's Bar Dalston - London Bar Review What with living South of the river it’s not often I pop East, but with talks of a new cocktail den adding to Dalston’s growing and diverse cocktail scene I felt the trip would do me good.

Sticky Fingers Kensington - London Restaurant Review In the week leading up to the Presidential Election, when the world centered in on America I thought I’d head down to an authentic American diner over in Kensington.

Buddha Bar - London Restaurant Review

Buddha Bar - London Restaurant Review Being a good ole ‘South’ Londoner, I felt it was about time I swap my jeans, denim shirt and converse for a dress and pair of heels (after a good dust off that is!) and venture into Knightsbridge to check out high end sushi restaurant, Buddha Bar.
