Brew Review – What We Thought

It’s always best to address the elephant in the room from the very start. Brew. The name that conjures up images of coffee, cake and dare I say, cyclists.   Upon arrival I glanced at the menu with caution. Was I going to find a Lance Armstrong apple sauce?Or a Eddy Merckx mezze? I hoped not.

Portrait Restaurant Review – What We Thought

What: Audrey Hepburn inspired menu Where: The Portrait Gallery  Why you should go there:   Favourite thing we ate: Veal and ricotta meatballs  If there is one thing I would like to have more of it would be poise. I have about as much grace as small baby elephant which in other words is zero.

5 Of The Best Delis In London

Everyone loves a picnic, but in recent years, the standard of picnic-ing appears to have dropped. If, like us, you get fed up of your friend Instagramming ‘picnic in the park’ with their supermarket meal deal and have to resist the urge to scream ‘that’s not a real picnic!’, then you need...

Pop down to POP-Down at Cuisson

Everybody loves a bit of pop, whether it be the cheesy S Club 7 kind, or the fizzy coca cola kind. Pop is fun and fleeting, or in the case of Steps, scarring. Pop-ups are just as much raucous fun and are pretty much guaranteed to be enjoyable. One promising pop-up is POP-Down, a brand new...

Salmontini Review – What We Thought

Ever since sushi first became an ‘it’ food all those years ago, I have loved Japanese cuisine, so I was really excited to try out Salmontini, which promises a modern, yet authentic take on Japanese dining. It is safe to say that I wasn’t disappointed! We began the evening in the lounge area...
