We Review: The Hamilton Inspired Afternoon Tea at The Lanesborough

What? Hamilton, it’s the most talked about musical to hit the West End since the Book of Mormon and right now the hottest ticket in town. I didn’t get tickets, the self-defeatist in me came out and I didn’t even try to go get them (that coupled with the fact that I completely forgot), what I did get though was the chance to go to The Lanesborough for the new Hamilton inspired afternoon tea – the Alexander Hamilton Tea. New? Yes, having launched at the start of the year, it’s a chance for those who got tickets to have a […]

But once the food does arrive, the only grammatical question to ponder is where to put a semi-colon or a comma in ‘this food is fantastic; definitely worth the unusually long […]

Uber vs Taxi: The Handbook Investigates

I’ve had to endure a number of hardships as a journalist, free holidays to California and Blackpool, complimentary dinners at dazzling restaurants, and Nandos, a week cycling up near vertical hills with an Olympic cycling instructor because they thought I was a sports correspondent. So when I was told that I’d be getting taxis to and from work for the next few days, my only answer was an enthusiastic “Yes g’vnor, but I won’t go Sarf of the river, mate”. Which is maddening given I live in Tooting. TFL rocked the boat when they announced that ride hailing app Uber’s […]
