5 Top Winter Cinemas

One of things we love about Christmas is the fact that you can sit and watch films all day and no one can judge you, it’s pretty much in the Christmas guidebook – ‘watch an inordinate amount of films’ . If you can manage to peel yourself off the sofa then head to one of these top winter pop-up cinemas, with gourmet pop-corn, mulled wine, Canada Goose coats and Moncler blankets – these cinemas are truly special and will leave you full of  festive cheer.

Christmas at KidZania

Christmas in London is rather magical isn’t it? With the sparkling lights, glittering ice-rinks and the impressive Christmas trees that line streets and fill the hotels. Well forget that because we can tell you somewhere that is even more magical this Christmas – especially if you have little ones or want to be the best sibling/aunt/godfather: KidZania. It’s like a real life Bugsy Malone -the children being adults bit, not the cream pie throwing gangster bit.  From tomorrow yuletide cheer will be spreading through the kids’ city,  the lights will be going on, the actors will be preparing for the […]

Ma Petite Jamaica Review – What We Thought

They say they are London’s first Caribbean diner and weirdly, after trying to think how I would sum it up, they are exactly the words I was trying to find – no frills, just Jamaican food in colourful, relaxed surroundings. The portions are huge but even so I’d say this is more of a lunch place than dinner – I can imagine it’s popular with nearby workers and market shoppers to get their jerk fix and perk up their afternoons with wraps and roti. Brightly coloured chairs and a palm leaf umbrella in the main dining area let you know […]

Vanilla Black Cookery Day School

If you’re vegetarian in most restaurants you’d be lucky to have half the number of dishes to choose from that carnivores do – bonus points if mushroom risotto doesn’t appear. Whilst we love a good steak and on a winter’s night a beef casserole is very hard to beat, we also think that vegetables should be more than just a side portion and (sometimes) deserve to be the star of the show.  Say hello to Vanilla Black’s Cookery Day School that can make anyone feel like Jamie or Nigella after a couple of hours. Put on by Icetank Kitchen who […]

Terroirs Review – What We Thought

Going out to eat around the Strand can be a bit of a minefield; it’s a task to find somewhere genuinely good and all too easy to find somewhere that preys on people who aren’t sure where to look, so they whack up the prices and cut out the quality. Then the inevitable happens and you play it safe in somewhere like Prezzo feeling rather miffed. So don’t eat on the Strand, go back a street to Terroirs, a French bar and wine shop sitting unassumingly on William IV Street. Having opened in 2008 Terroir’s takes its inspiration from the […]
