The Lucky Pig Opens in Fulham

Fulham Broadway is great for brunch, it’s great for healthy juices and it’s perfect for long lunches, but what it is in need of is a really good cocktail den and a place to dance. Good thing then that The Lucky Pig in Fitzrovia heard Fulham’s cries and emerged from their  lair to set up camp in south west London. First things first, who is this pig and why is he so lucky? Well the name refers to the Lucky Luciano a 1920s racketeer and the name given to speakeasies during the Prohibition, blind pigs. Channelling the hedonism and glamour […]

Source, Battersea

What: Wholesome locally sourced foodWhere: BatterseaWhy You Should Go There: For casual, fresh food. Favourite Thing We Ate: Sweet potato gnocchi Battersea is widely known for its landmark power station and ever-popular dog’s home, so top restaurants aren’t exactly what comes to mind when you think of this South London district. However, the restaurant Source, with its emphasis on showcasing wholesome locally sourced food, is a great addition to the Battersea scene.

The Strand Dining Rooms

What:  British dining near Charing Cross Where: Grand Buildings, The Strand Why You Should Go There: If you’re after British dining but can’t justify places like The Wolseley.Favourite Thing We Ate: Parmesan custard with anchovy toast You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into a version of The Wolseley mixed with the Savoy when you walked into The Strand Dining Rooms, albeit a more modern, causal version.  It features the same classic décor emulating iconic Pullman train carriages, shares an equally enviable London position – as the name suggests on The Strand and yet it has a way to go to […]

The Black Penny Opens: Drinks for 1p

Cancel your lunch plans and forgo your coffee – even if you’re reading this whilst drinking it, bin it and head to The Black Penny on Great Queen Street because today all coffees cost a mere 1p and for 2p you can have lunch too. Look at it another way, how much was your usual coffee £2.95? So at The Black Penny you could have bought a hefty 295 cups of coffee for the same price (that is enough to satisfy any caffeine addict and probably hospitalise you). If you haven’t heard then The Black Penny is a new coffee […]

Get Hung Up On Merlin Events

”Do one thing a day that scares you”. It’s a good rule. We like that rule. But when we went on a tour of the London dungeon we didn’t expect it to actually scare us. After all it is just one of those attractions in London that only tourists go to. Wrong. The actors here are sensational. Yes – actors! We got to meet Jack The Ripper – top lad, not sure why people don’t like him. There is no boring history lecture either, the entertainment just keeps on coming. The 60 minute, live action, Dungeon tour is a sensual and […]
