Giving It Both Barrels | Shotgun BBQ, 26 Kingly Street, London W1B 5QD

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, unless you have 7,000 hours in the day and (£7,000 in the bank), it’s pretty impossible to keep up with all new restaurants popping… Continue reading

The Slow Burn Brunch At Chai Ki | Mall Level -1 Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AR

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

If You Go ‘Up’ To The Woods Today… | Forest On The Roof, Selfridges & Co, 400 Oxford Street London W1A 1AB

I rarely visit Oxford Street, I find that the hoards of tourists and crazed shoppers frazzles my brain, sending it into a spin. But if weaving my way through the crowds means I… Continue reading

Holy Duck! | Peter’s Menu at Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Pizza Perfect | Pizza Pilgrims, 11 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5PW

OK, I’m not being mean,  but why do so-called Londoners go to Pizza Express? This is a question we ask ourselves frequently. There are tonnes of greater (and cheaper) restaurants, it’s not 1998… Continue reading

Pass me a bottle, Mr Jones | The Jones Family Project, 78 Great Eastern Street, London EC2A 3JL

Winter warmers | Our favourite slow-cooked stews and casseroles in London, bookable with OpenTable

Put this on your restaurant bucket list | The Palomar, 34 Rupert Street, London, W1D 6DN

Great pizza, perfect setting | Pizza Tipi, Cambrian Quay, Cardigan, Wales SA43 1EZ

The toast of India | The summer toastie menu at Cinnamon Soho, 5 Kingly Street, London W1B 5PF

Other restaurants take note, this is how its done | Polpetto, 11 Berwick Street, London W1F 0PL

Restaurateur Russell Norman has said several times ‘In a restaurant, service is as important, if not more so, than food. You can rescue an average food experience with excellent service, but no amount… Continue reading
