The Indian Restaurant Vegans Should Know About

What: An Indian restaurant serving vegetarian food isn’t particularly ground-breaking but one with its own vegan menu is a small but important leap that caught my attention enough to get me down there. First Impression: A short walk from the main high street, the restaurant was much smaller than I expected with only around 7 tables, once you walked through the door you were in the middle of the room. Our table was by the entrance to the bar so not the best view, with a constant stream of waiting staff bustling by, but the better window tables were occupied. […]

It’s pretty hard to say winter is coming nowadays without thinking of John Snow clad in an overwhelming amount of fur looking out onto a tumultuous and bleak setting of snow and overcasting. However, the truth is that winter actually is coming (despite the Indian-summer style weather proving otherwise), and in keen anticipation inamo Camden is popping up with its Winter Garden, featuring three ent(ice)ing igloo pods. Sorry… snow more bad puns! inamo are Pan-Asian restaurants and bars which can be found flurried across the city with locations in Soho, Covent Garden and now Camden.

Lose Yourself In London’s Most Enchanted Forest

Enchanted forests are generally the stuff of fairy tales, teaming with elves, trolls and gingerbread houses. At best you’ll get Mr Tumnus and the Beaver family, at worst a three angry bears looking for porridge thiefs. And the received wisdom around enchanted forests is to generally steer clear, ask the TomTom for an alternative route, turn back or seek out a Potter-style invisibility cloak. All that is unless it’s the enchanted forest at Syon Park, in which plunge straight in. The ‘London home’ of the Duke of Northumberland, Syon Park ain’t no two-up-two-down in Balham but rather an imposing country […]

Champagne Bars So Smart They Should Give Them A Degree

There’s something about Champagne, isn’t there? A level of sophistication that you can’t achieve with other drinks. Perhaps it’s because it’s over-priced and quaffed by the sort of people who say ‘quaffed’, but maybe it’s down to the subtleties of the wine, the richness of the flavours and the variety of producers. As a nation we import more Champagne than anyone else, the City of London practically runs on the stuff. And London is the perfect place to find a great Champagne bar and make the most of France’s best export after Asterix & Obelix. St Pancras By Searcys If […]
