When you step inside Bonnie Gull, you are whisked away from the dark London streets and could so easily be on the South coast. Its white interior is lit with small twinkling lights and is adorned with kilometre of fishermen’s rope evoking the nostalgic feeling of a seaside shack. The infamous Nirvana quote, ‘It’s ok to eat fish ‘Cause they don’t have feelings’ stands proudly on the wall and the winning feature (for me) the map of Britain points out exactly where the fish has been caught that day, which not only means that dishes depend on the catch but […]

Although the restaurant was nearly empty, it did take a while for someone to clear our plates. However, once they had, my roast chicken arrived pretty swiftly – a beautifully tender piece of meat with a Yorkshire […]
