Review: The Coral Room afternoon tea

I love an afternoon tea. Nothing feels more indulgent than tiny sandwiches, dainty cakes and scones in the middle of the afternoon, so I was excited about sampling The Coral Room Sparkling Afternoon Tea. Nestled inside the Bloomsbury Hotel, The Coral Room is the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of central London, and definitely a sight for sore eyes. Read more…

Pisqu – a review

Peruvian cuisine is on the rise within the UK, noticeably through clusters of restaurants within London, and the use of Peruvian ingredients being heralded as ‘superfoods’ and cementing themselves as staple ingredients in pre-packaged lunches for those looking to eat green/lean/whatever the latest word for it is. Pisqu, however, offers Peruvian cuisine with more style than most. Read more…

The Wellington Club – a review

Jermyn Street is home to quintessential British artistry and craftmanship right in the heart of Piccadilly. Quite a fitting home for The Wellington Club, which boasts similar qualities itself. Finding The Wellington Club at first proves to be challenging, and you’ll have to go on using the good old address rather than rely on any shouty signs. Read more…

Review: Angler tasting menu

Mirror-gilled Angler is found on the buzzy seventh floor of the South Place Hotel, complete with a super-slick interior and an in-demand terrace. Having established itself a name as one of the best seafood restaurants in London, it’s no surprise that the very best produce is hauled in at Angler, foraged from coastlines and shores to develop skilled cookery with more than your average soul.

Afternoon Tea at the Knightsbridge Lounge – a multi-sensory experience

The Knightsbridge Lounge can be discovered in the centre of Belgravia, a short walk from Knightsbridge Underground Station. The lounge itself comprises many comfortable high-backed armchairs, and soft couches. Each table is set far enough apart from the ones around it to get a sense of privacy within your group – something that is so often not the case. Read more…

Maskelyne & Cooke – a review

It is grey, it is January. The holiday season is over, a long 5 weeks loom until this month will be over. Blue Monday is around the corner, and the jolly of the party season has evaporated. Lo & behold, Maskelyne & Cooke. The bar proving that the magic and sparkle has not all faded, as they offer an impressive cocktail menu, classic dishes and best of all, a magic show. Read more…

Review: afternoon tea at Café Forty One

Can there be a more classically British way to spend an afternoon than with a traditional afternoon tea? Afternoon tea in London is still booming and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. A good few places now cater to those with dietary requirements and of course the seemingly ever rising number of vegetarian and vegans, but I must say this is one with a difference. Read more…

Review: a Hidden Gem at Rock Star Sushi Bar

Drawing flocks of crowds from faithful regulars to far-flung destination travellers, the fine-tuned formula at Rock Star Sushi Bar is clearly ticking all the boxes, with a strong line in contemporary Japanese creations rooted in immaculate sourcing.

That will be a mainstay throughout the meal as we’re continuously wowed by the offerings at Gillray’s Steakhouse & Bar. Read more…

Review: Londrino

When Grace Dent brands the food ‘magical’ in one of her restaurant reviews, you sit up and take notice. Turning this staunch critic into a fangirl, Londrino is the latest outpost from head chef Leandro Carreira; the name meaning ‘Portuguese for Londoner. Read more…

Review: The Rib Room

Nestled just off the high-end shops of Sloane Street, you’ll find The Rib Room at the luxurious Jumeriah Carlton Tower. In a fast-changing and sometimes cut-throat London restaurant scene, The Rib Room is somewhat of a rarity, a restaurant that has been going strong for over 50 years. Read more…

Review – Mango Tree Belgravia

With Thai restaurants now two-a-penny in London, the challenge of finding Far-Eastern flavours was long displaced by the challenge of discerning the good ones. Especially those whose dishes retain authenticity. Belgravia’s Mango Tree offers just that, bringing distinct dishes from each corner of Thailand to Central London. Read more…

Adjoining Flat Iron Square – one of Southwark’s established foodie hubs – is Union Street, a street that runs parallel to the river and has its own food offerings to rival the square. Union Street Café is one aptly named offering, and one of 15 in Gordon Ramsay’s Restaurant Group. On offer is Northern Italian cuisine. Read more…
