We tried out London’s first ever crisps restaurant

We tried out London’s first ever crisps restaurant If music be the food of love, give me crisps instead. It’s common knowledge that London has gone slightly mad with ridiculous food trends. I for one am not complaining about this madness, especially when I heard about HIPCHIPS. I’m gonna cut to the chase; if you're not a crisp fan... Read more >

The Colton Arms - London Gastro Pub Review

The Colton Arms - London Gastro Pub Review It’s not very often that I venture to West London. However, it was hearing that Hippo Inns had opened a cosy pub in West Kensington that sparked my curiosity to head on over to the land of the unknown. The Colton Arms is one of their newer venues, offering a great local for residents, and... Read more >

Darbaar - London Restaurant Bar Review

Darbaar - London Restaurant Bar Review One of the benefits of living in our nation’s capital is not just the diversity of the food on offer, but that all of that diversity tastes so good. Indian food is no different, so when I got the opportunity to visit Darbaar (winner of Best Newcomer at the British Curry Awards 2016), I...

Dandelyan Waterloo - London Bar Review

Dandelyan Waterloo - London Bar Review I hate to be the one to deliver bad news, but White Lyan in Hoxton will close its doors forever in April. Before you start hysterically sobbing at the thought of never having whale sperm cocktails again (yes, these actually exist), take solace in the fact that you can still revel in Mr... Read more >

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. But finding the right pub can sometimes feel like a treasure hunt. A gem found just south of the river, The Ladywell Tavern is a good ol' neighbourhood pub, where... Read more >

Dickie Fitz - London Restaurant Review

Dickie Fitz - London Restaurant Review I've always got a slight spring in my step when I'm walking towards Fitzrovia. As I plodded around the corner and saw Dickie Fitz down the way, I had a feeling in my gut that this Aussie spot was going to be up there with the best. I might have felt a bit subconscious about my... Read more >

We tried out a bottomless brunch at the ever nostalgic Schoolhouse in Battersea

We tried out a bottomless brunch at the ever nostalgic Schoolhouse in Battersea In the last year, I’ve really... really got into brunch. I’ve eaten my fair share of smashed avocado, and moved from Americanos to Flat Whites, but the only wild thing about my brunches is dosing up on two coffees. After living in London for 7 years, and working for DesignMyNight for 4... Read more >

Bare Bones XXL Tour - London Event Review

Bare Bones XXL Tour - London Event Review Much like the crusty seats and determination not to make eye contact, drinking on public transport is a Great British rite that should be chiseled into stone and plonked outside Oxford Circus. Mancunian sauce company Meat Lust have combined the three British pillars of beer, BBQed meat and busing... Read more >

Gotto Trattoria - London Restaurant Review

Gotto Trattoria - London Restaurant Review Everyone I spoke to before my review of Gotto Trattoria said the same thing - 'amazing Italian food, cute little space, but not the easiest to get to'. Given that I had to take 3 different forms of transport and was led down two dead-ends by google maps on my route, it's fair to say the latter... Read more >

SMITHS of Smithfield Review - London Restaurant Bar Review

SMITHS of Smithfield Review - London Restaurant Bar Review Once again I find myself face-to-face with my sworn enemy: steak. Don’t get me wrong, when steak is cooked properly, it’s literally a food that’s descended from the heavens. But too often we’re forced to put up with medium rare pretending to be rare; with cuts of meat that... Read more >
