Smokin’ Good And Not In The Big Smoke Either! | Brisket And Barrel, Sevenoaks

Brisket and Barrel, sounds like just another east-end hot smoke barbecue joint. But no, it’s all the way out in the ‘burbs – in Sevenoaks to be precise. ‘How the hell did you… Continue reading

Summer In The City | HKK’s Xiao Shu And Da Shu Menu, 88 Worship Street, London

Ducking Different | Duck & Waffle Local, 52 Haymarket, London

Five years on since opening, Duck & Waffle up in Heron Tower is still one of the places to go in London with bookings hard to come by. People come flocking for their… Continue reading

I’m On The Top Of The World Lookin’ Down On… Canary Wharf | Bōkan At The Novotel, Canary Wharf

Last Night A Taco Saved My Life | Breddos Tacos London EC1

OK, so that heading is a little dramatic but Breddos Tacos rescued what could have been a very disappointing evening. I had even got to work early so that I could escape my… Continue reading

Do Believe The Hype | Padella, 6 Southwark Street, London

Once again, we were late to the party, leaving it a little while for the hype to ease and the queues likewise. Padella, in case you don’t know, is a pasta bar by… Continue reading

Taking Some Time Out | Bel & The Dragon at The Swan, Kingsclere

Since Big Ben rang us into 2017, Saff and I have been working our bits off. It’s been relentless with me on a magazine redesign whilst Saff has been neck-deep in a new… Continue reading

Brighton Up Your Life | 64 Degrees, 53 Meeting House Lane, Brighton

With 2016 so full of doom and gloom – particularly heavy on the death front, we decided to make 2017 about having a bit more fun and going to more places (especially places… Continue reading

Wal Worth It | Louie Louie, 347 Walworth Road, London

When I typed ‘Louie Louie‘ into Google for a little background info, top of the page was the song of the same name performed by The Kingsman. I had no idea that this… Continue reading

Picture Restaurant, Marylebone, London | Bookatable Star Deals

Le Coq Spread Their Wings | Le Coq, Islington, London

Le Coq in Islington is a rare gem – and when we say that, we mean that wholeheartedly, it’s especially lovely to visit at this time of year. We first discovered them a… Continue reading

I Feel Like Chicken Tonight | Absurd Bird, Commercial Street, London

The night before we tried Absurd Bird I had a craving for KFC. ‘No’, I said to myself, we’ve got fried chicken tomorrow – good fried chicken (from what I’d heard). London is… Continue reading

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah | Bluebird, King’s Road, Chelsea, London

With the billions of new launches and food trends, it was refreshing news to hear that Bluebird in Chelsea has reopened after a £2m refurbishment. Yes, TWO MILLION – if only we could… Continue reading

Meat, Fire and Smoke | Barbecoa, One New Change, London

Barbecoa over in One New Change was on our list back when it opened way back in 2010 – that’s like three decades ago in restaurant years. It has since been wiped off… Continue reading
