Wine & Nibbles for London Restaurant Festival at 1901 Wine Lounge

Malibran Sottoriva Prosecco

When catching up with old friends the setting and food choices are very important. I need a comfy seat, relaxed atmosphere and a good wine-to-food ratio.
The perfect evening for me would consist of a few small plates to graze on whilst sipping some delicious wines (plural), preferably on a fluffy sofa. The Wine Lounge at 1901 ticks all these boxes with their LRF wine and nibbles offering. Read more…

Free-flowing Fizz for LRF at M Restaurant Victoria

Wine Shop

London Restaurant Festival is back in town this month and to put it bluntly, I’m excited. If you are unfamiliar with the concept it means you get to eat at top quality establishments at a great value price.

The Stable Review: New Pizza on the Block

The Longhorn Jim Pizza

The London pizza scene is fierce. Not only do I expect great dough, toppings and crust, I want a great atmosphere and friendly service to boot. The Stable in Whitechapel caught my eye promising handmade pizzas with locally sourced ingredients, a great selection of ciders and a cool space to chill. With that I grabbed my boyfriend for a Friday date. Read more…

Review: Mustard, Shepherd’s Bush

Meeting my husband near Shepherd’s Bush station, we decided to check out the new up and coming restaurant that is Mustard. Read more…

At Stoke Newington’s latest buzz spot, The Good Egg, Jay Rayner finds that the ‘good things… really are very good’. Porchetta with cardamom and grilled apricots is ‘a reason for crossing town’, pistachio cake is ‘squidgy’ and ‘[pleasing]’, and baked cheesecake is ‘light and soft’. Read more…

Review: Acqua 7, Dalston

Dalston is nothing new to me personally. Usually I frequent this hip little hub to dance in its dingy basements. On this particular day though, things were different. Firstly it was daylight, I was sober as a judge, and rather than jabbing the air in music-induced, reckless abandon, my friend and I were to be sampling fine wine and food at the swanky new concept bar, Acqua 7.

Sunday Lunching – Townhouse at The Kensington

Dessert Platter - Townhouse

One of the things I love most about the restaurant scene in London is the little hidden gems within the boutique hotels especially around the Kensington area. My friends and I love going for a traditional Sunday pub lunch but sometimes it’s nice to try something a little different. Last weekend I was lucky enough to indulge in the new Sunday lunch menu at The Town House at The Kensington Hotel. Read more…
