ATTENNN-SHUN! | The Guard House, No 1 Street, Woolwich Arsenal, London SE18 6GH

Victorian Shenanigans | Mr Fogg’s Tavern, 58 St Martin’s Lane, London WC2N 4EA

If I were a tourist in London, Mr Fogg’s Tavern is exactly the kind of place I’d hope to stumble across. Pure British eccentricity in Theatreland, a pub just a stone’s throw from… Continue reading

Chops Away! | Blacklock, 24 Great Windmill Street, Soho, London W1D 7LG

I felt I’d given ourselves enough time to recover from the last no reservations restaurant we visited before heading to another* – Blacklock. Founded by a few ex-employees from one of our favourite… Continue reading

A Home From Homeslice | Homeslice Pizza, 52 Wells Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 3PR

When writing up our restaurant reviews, the first thing that I try to do is think of a title. It has to be witty (usually fails), pun-tasticly clever (again hit and miss) and… Continue reading

Make It EASY On Yourself | Big Easy Canary Wharf, Upper Level 1, Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf London E14 5AR

It Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin | Beef & Brew, 323 Kentish Town Road, London NW5 2TJ
