Spuntino, London

I have had a couple of occasions lately on my work trips that I haven’t had any plans, shocker ! So I have found myself embracing solo-dining. It can be quite a daunting experience if you have never done it before, you want to make sure you get the right place to feel comfortable and…

Bird of Smithfield, London

Nothing beats a nice drink at a rooftop bar on a sunny evening, and now summer is (kind of) here, a friend and I took advantage of the lovely sunshine and enjoyed a few drinks up on the roof of Bird of Smithfield overlooking the ornate Smithfield Market. I had read good things about the…

The Chocolate Cocktail Club

If you love chocolate and cocktails then The Chocolate Cocktail Club is the place for you! A few weeks ago I paid a visit along with some friends to this pop up; a speakeasy style affair hidden underneath Brick Lane serving chocolate twists on classic cocktails. This pop up was only to be around until…

Spitalfields Art

When the weather is favourable I do like to go for a walk at lunchtime, unfortunately depending on where I am working the walk is not often that scenic. Working recently in the City in London I discovered it is a haven of art!  From regular art displays in Broadgate to the Sculptures that can…

Brother Marcus

Brother Marcus was a recent great little find of mine about 200 yards from my London office along Camden Passage. So one evening I went along with a friend to try out their food – their Instagram account was appetising enough! The concept, as is the trend these days is for small plates.  The menu has…

Kricket

I’ve been spending more time in London recently with work, which gives a great opportunity to knock off a few items from my restaurant bucket list. Kricket in Soho is a modern Indian and my friend and I paid a midweek visit before going to see a film nearby at the Picturehouse Central (which I can also recommend!). …

Afternoon Tea at Sketch, London

Last weekend Mum and I were headed to London Town to a wedding, and we decided to make a few days of it.  One thing we both love is an Afternoon Tea, what is better than whiling away a few hours over some sandwiches, scones, delicate pastries and endless pots of tea?  I did some…

The Chop Shop

When we were last in London Stuart and I made an effort to eat in places we haven’t been to before.  When you are down there working its easy to fall into the trap of the same old restaurants.  So I did my research before we went and I set my eyes on The Chop…

Burger & Lobster

I’ve been working down in London this past week or so, and whilst I’m here I’ve been trying to check out different places to eat – a change from hotel room service! A colleague told me about Burger & Lobster, they have 4 branches across London and sell 3 things: Burgers, Lobsters and Lobster rolls…

Eat Street

During the summer I managed to be down in London a couple of times and was able to treat myself to the delights of Eat Street, a Street Food initiative run by Petra Barran and based at Kings Boulevard, up beside Kings Cross Station The principle is simple every day a collection (usually between 3…
