We had dinner aboard a luxury floating restaurant

Just a 5/10 minute walk along the river from both Embankment and Temple lies a unique restaurant, bar and event space. Moored on a luxury yacht, many might think this is a prime, touristy dining spot, but don’t be fooled. The Yacht’s fine dining menu and exclusive landmark views are stellar, butI…

Popping out for a drink isn't always what it’s cracked up to be - when we go out, we all want more. Whether it's cocktails topped with cheeseburgers, playing mini golf in an abandoned warehouse, or drinking in a prison cell, we want to be taken to the next level.

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. Every weekend the big question on my mind is ‘where the brunch at?’. Deciding to make the trek from the depths of South London to Zona N16…

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. A mix of coffee and meetings has been the extent of our relationship, until my curiosity took me to Patch East to check out a Thursday night in London's financial district…

The Ladywell Tavern - London Pub Review

The Ladywell Tavern - London Pub Review

I'm under the firm belief that Sunday afternoons are pretty much what roast dinners and pubs were made for - I dare anyone to disagree.
