Check Out The New Aussie Restaurant Coming To Soho

Put another shrimp on the barbie, head down to Ramsey Street and let’s do a bush-tucker challenge while listening to Men At Work. Or let’s forget all the cliches and instead head to Scarlett Green for a real taste of Antipodean living. The restaurant, inspired by Melbourne and Sydney cafe culture, is opening in the centre of Soho next month and looks set to be the perfect place to find healthy food in a relaxed yet buzzing atmosphere. And founder Daisy Green certainly has form, she’s already made a mark on London cafe culture with openings including Timmy Green in […]

G-Force: Your Chance to Try Over 200 Wines

If you were to head down to the Phonica Records on Tuesday 1st May, then you would find yourself surrounded by over 200 wines, which is rather fun. Why? Because Wines of Germany are taking over the Soho building for an evening of German wine and food. Once there, you’ll have a chance to try over 200 wines from one of the world’s most exciting and oldest (and in places steepest) wine producing regions, including many wines that can’t be found anywhere else in the UK. We’re talking plenty of Rieslings, Pinot Noirs, Scheurebes and Silvaners. Wine is one of […]

The New Workshop Celebrating All Things Floral

From Romans and Greeks preserving flowers to study them, to Victorians bringing the beauty of outdoors indoors and girls keeping flowers from suitors in the pages of books, there’s something rather whimsical and wonderful about pressing flowers and as part of Chelsea Flower Show, Pullman London St Pancras will be hosting flower pressing workshops. The free workshops include botanical cocktails, canapés and London-based artist Anna Garforth will teach you how to press flowers and give tips about how to forage for flowers in some of London’s best wild spots.

World Famous Baker Launches Afternoon Tea

King of the Cronut ®, Dominique Ansel will be launching his first afternoon tea just in time for the May bank holiday…although we’ll warn you now, there are no Cronuts ®.

Experiences & Pop-Ups

Eat Out In Mayfair For Charity

The ‘safari dinner’ concept, where diners move from location to location between courses just moved up a gear. Rather than traipsing between your friends’ kitchens, sampling a cottage pie here and a dodgy crumble there, Action Against Hunger have launched nationwide Moveable Feasts, enrolling some of the UK’s leading restaurants and restauranteurs. The result is both worthy AND tasty and this May it comes to Mayfair. The Moveable Feast has already circulated round Liverpool, Leeds, Soho and The City. Guests attend a drinks reception before rotating round four leading restaurants munching their way through a different course at each venue. The […]

Anyone Who Loves Indian Food Needs To Be Here

We’ve got something seriously hot and more than a bit spicy for you. Don’t worry, we’re not about to launch some NSFW shizz onto your computer screen, we’re talking about a South Asian food extravaganza on London’s Southbank. Kerb, the capital’s leading streetfooders, will be running Southbank’s Alchemy Festival which will transform the concrete jungle of the Southbank Centre into a scene awash with colour and the flavours and smells of South Asian cuisine. We can’t wait. Unusually, uniting the nations of Balgladesh, India, Napal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the festival will see 29 street traders gather to cook up […]

Fulham Really is the Place to be as The Little Blue Door Opens

The Little Yellow Door was how we all imagine living in London was going to be, one long party, with plenty of drinks, no tidying up and a Notting Hill postcode to match. But just like when your favourite housemate leaves and suddenly everything falls apart, The Little Yellow Door has now closed its door and had their locks changed. The flatmates have moved on, getting their own places in different areas and the first flatmate has set up shop in Fulham, with The Little Blue Door. A new home which will act as a late-night neighbourhood bar and restaurant, […]

London’s Hippest Burger Joint Opens Close To Borough Market

Good things come in tens; which is normally our approach when it comes to glasses of Prosecco, but Patty & Bun have decided that it applies equally to restaurants so *cue fanfare* they have just announced a new London Bridge site, and it looks pretty impressive. The tenth Patty & Bun, located on Borough High Street, is billed as their ‘most ambitious yet’, being set over two floors and literally within stones throwing distance of the London foodie scene’s ground zero –  Borough Market. And with ten restaurants under their belt already, the plan is to put all that experience […]
