The Petersham Hotel really must be the best London hotel to not really be in London in. With a commanding position over the river Thames this grand yet intimate gem has much to recommend it, an enviable location, gorgeous interiors and, now, Head Chef Jean-Didier Gouges. Gouges has taken the helm after heading up the team at Rhubarb’s flagship restaurant in the Royal Albert Hall and is already transforming the menu at The Petersham’s fine-dining restaurant into something both unique and special. Setting out in his native Mauritius, Gouges was trained in classic French techniques and it’s this culinary ‘bilingualness’ and understanding […]
If the answer to ‘Who wants a free burger?’ isn’t ‘Can I have fries with that?’ then a. you’re totally barking mad and b. you’ve not had a Rail House Café Burgerdict. And yes, you can have fries with it. Here’s the deal: Victoria’s Rail House Café is giving away 20 free Burgerdict dishes every day next week. That’s right, the first 20 orders each day, entirely gratis. While the lure of ‘free stuff’ should be enough for anyone, you may still be wondering what on earth a Burgerdict is? No, not a meaty tribute to the Sherlock star, or […]
As a child, I didn’t expect to appreciate cartoons and fairytales at the age of 27 just as much as I did when I was five. Perhaps even more so, now that I fully understand all the little quips that went over my innocent head. And don’t get me started on conspiracy theories or how each film is linked… hours have been wasted on that. As a child I also thought I’d never appreciate alcohol, but some things change. Before I digress (further), why am I telling you this? Because there is a fairytale bottomless brunch coming to London. Bringing […]
Another day, another vegan announcement (if you missed yesterday’s you can check it out here) today we’re letting you know that What the Pitta, the UK’s first vegan doner kebab stall is opening their third and flagship branch in Camden on the 9th March. Realising the benefits of a plant-based diet but missing the grilled flavours of Turkish foods, vegan Cem Yildiz, joined forces with friend, Rojdan Gul, whose uncle had been making cult vegan kebabs in Germany for years. The result was What the Pitta and a pop-up in 2016 at The Pump in Shoreditch. The kebabs are made […]
Ever wondered what it would be like to eat like The Queen? Not knocking back Dubonnet and picking out corgi hairs like our current monarch, but like the most glorious queen Britain’s had, Queen Victoria? Well now you can, thanks to Blenheim Palace. Led by Executive Chef Billy Bush, the team at the stately home’s The Orangery restaurant have put together a culinary homage to the great lady in the form of an afternoon tea celebrating her life.

After the success of last month’s ‘Critics’ choices’ article we decided that we’d do a roundup of February too! So here is everywhere that the team visited, and reviewed, over the last month. Darcie and May Green Peter Blake, the famous painter, has designed two brightly decorated barges and Daisy Green has lashed them together and created a floating restaurant which Charlotte went to review and was impressed by the antipodean menu. No kangaroo here as Charlotte’s strictly veggie so she gourged on halloumi fries and vegan curry and gave it a casual thumbs up. Check out the full review here… Theo […]
Everyone knows that when it comes to gravity defying acrobatics, jaw-dropping stunts and edge of your seat performances then Cirque du Soleil is at the top of their game. Their latest show OVO is a riot of energy with crazy crickets, amazing ants and flexible fleas and even features a 14m high flying trapeze act, which is the biggest of its kind. You’ve got to be quick if you haven’t seen it yet, as it’s only hanging about until this Sunday (4th March) so really you have to be super quick. Whilst you’re there you can raise a glass of […]
