Hey Hey Mr Postman! What Should We Do This Half Term?

It may be snowing outside, but the season is marching on and somehow it’s nearly half term time already. Commuters rejoice, my bus will be significantly more on-time without the school traffic; but parents, what are you going to do? How about the Postal Museum? If Postman Pat had been on the mean streets of East London rather than the mean streets of Greendale, he might have swapped his van for the Mail Rail, the 100 year-old post train that runs beneath the capital. No room for Jess, but room for you and your little ones. And that’s not all, the […]

We Review: Theo Randall at the InterContinental

What: Counting Jamie Oliver as a fan (see his praise splashed across Theo’s website and books) and Jay Rayner who claims Theo Randall served him “the best meal” he had “all year”, I was admittedly looking forward to eating at Theo Randall at the InterContinental and it did not disappoint. New? This is Theo Randall’s first restaurant which he opened in November 2006, his latest restaurant is Theo’s Simple Italian. Where? InterContinental, 1 Hamilton Place, Mayfair, W1J 7QY www.theorandall.com On the menu: Theo Randall’s menu reflects his personal taste for food so the menu is Italian cuisine done in an unfussy […]

The Ultimate Food Challenge: The Half Stone Burger

It’s no wonder Man v. Food is such a popular series, it’s basically food porn. A chance for us to indulge in our food fantasies of basically gorging ourselves silly on deep fat fried everything and then winning eternal glory and the respect of our peers. Or maybe that’s just me. Anyway, rather than delving into the inner workings of my mind, back to business, Man v. Food is back on our screens and with a new host. After years of eating, Adam Richman has handed over the baton to Casey Webb and to celebrate the new host and new […]

The Pop-up Back by Popular Demand

It’s back! Due to popular demand our favourite Thames-side forest returns. While January was busy being all depressed, February is hotting up to be the month of romance. The team behind Winterland has had a rummage around and decided to give us all the pick-me-up we need. Given it’s the time of the year where snuggling up with someone is all anyone seems to be talking about, be a friend or lover, there could not be a better place for snuggling. Look forward to that cosy winter warm feeling, swaddled in blankets and tucked away in an igloo. Ditch your […]
