I hadn’t clocked when I got the invite but my friend Amy had told me about the original version of this place many, many years ago and I had still not got around to going. This was, perhaps in part because, before its recent relaunch, getting a table (as fully admitted...

I’m a sucker for some immersive dining, combining two of my favourite things as it does, and I’ve been to some cracking ones recently – Shotgun Carousel’s  Divine Proportions was a hoot and Gingerline’s Grand Expedition was whimsical delight. I had high hopes for Banqu...

A pub quiz, bingo and Cards against humanity – who would put those things together and why?

Well, Cattivo did and it actually worked pretty well, though lead to feelings of slight injustice from our team.

The set up is this – like any pub quiz, there’s a quizmaster, and...

I went to Kudu for the bread, not gonna lie. But I stayed for everything else. 

The bread reminded me of this stuff we used to get when we were kids – Hawaiian bread, squares of puffy, slightly sweet dough that didn’t need butter but were even better warmed an...

Another one I managed to cross off that has been on my list for an age was the Silk restaurant in Oxford Circus. I had heard the food wasn’t outstanding but the idea of eating in a converted courthouse – one that had seen the Rolling Stones and Oscar Wilde brought to t...

I don't know what a buttermilk pie is when it's at home but I can tell you it's delicious. At least, it is when A Pie Party makes it. It reminds me of a pumpkin pie without the pumpkin which I'm going to guess is down to nutmeg. It was rich, bouncy and sweet. I am sold...

A place can be years on my list but I'll get there eventually! Such as it was with The Marksman. I can't even remember when it first opened but way back in July I finally ate there.


We didn't order that much - I wish I could have tried more but what we did get...

I have been keen on returning to the Bleeding Heart since a farewell work dinner there in 2007. It made that much of an impression.

Partly this is because I love the morbid story associated with its name whereby a woman is murdered, found torn limb from limb with her he...

It may be sacrilege to say it but I think I prefer crab to lobster.

So when I heard that Claw were moving to a permanent place in Carnaby, I knew I had to make a visit. Maybe several.

First I stopped by to try their takeaway crab roll. Packed full of crab, not too heavy...

I was racking up a few places in the Broadgate Circle area that I wanted to try that are only open lunchtimes so finally I decided to take the hit and use up my lunch hour traveling there and back to try one. Schmaltz was top of the agenda - I thought their chicken san...
