Bentley’s Review

Bentley’s, on Swallow Street, is situated in a historic Victorian building on the borders of Soho and Mayfair. The restaurant came to life in 2005, when it was taken over by talented chef and restaurateur Richard Corrigan. He refurbished the venue to its former glory, making the building one of the oldest and most prestigious seafood restaurants in London today. Their passion and skill for seafood is clear as soon as you taste the food; our favourite was the Bentley Lobster which was full of flavour and a definite recommendation. A close second were the delicious oysters, but if you […]

Charlie McVeigh of Draft House fame is launching dive bar and distillery, The Bump Caves tomorrow on Tower Bridge Road which promises to 'breach the limits of flavour, aroma, sound, texture and vision'.

Fish Market: Review

We all know that sharing is caring and with this (possibly) in mind, Fish Market restaurant have launched a new sharing platter menu, The Fish Shack which is available at the weekends. Despite the rain that kept coming through in bursts we chose to sat outside; with plants winding around the railings hiding the bustle of Bishopsgate, large umbrellas forming a canopy across the whole terrace and heaters we were kept nice and snug, but if you’re able to go in the evening when it’s dry then the terrace is lovely with twinkling lights and flickering candles. The menu is […]

Radio Rooftop Bar: Review

The Radio Rooftop Bar at ME London, I’ve heard so much about it, recommended it to friends when they’ve asked for places to go and raved about it to others. I’ve just never quite made it there. So with the sun shining and thinking it would be the perfect time to experience the roof-top bar and see London in all its glory, I booked a table and then what happened? It rained. Did that deter us?  Of course it didn’t – we are true Brits after all, nor did it deter the rest of London since the bar was packed […]
