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 […]
What: There’s something troubling me about The Coachmakers Arms in Marylebone. It’s nothing major, but should there be an apostrophe? Are they the arms of a coachmaker? Or the arms of the all coachmakers? Or perhaps it’s not possessive at all? It doesn’t really matter, but you’ll have plenty of time to ponder it while you wait to be served, and it’s better than constantly glancing at your watch. 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 […]
Le Bab, the restaurant that made it acceptable to eat kebab before 11pm has announce that they’ll be opening a new Covent Garden restaurant, Maison Bab.

Chucking food away, too many straws and endless coffee cups, we’re all guilty of not making the most of what we already have. Rather than bury our heads in the sand and hope the problem goes away, it’s time for us to all come together to reduce the amount we waste if we want to help the state of our planet. Here are six ways that restaurants are working to save the planet, from loving ugly vegetables to giving you money off your morning flat white. Cutting Down on Straws According to Eco Cycle, the US gets through 500 […]

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”.
