Fantastic Fish and Chips at Bonnie Gull

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 […]

Cocktails at the opening of the Churchill bar and terrace

The Churchill Bar and Terrace officially opened at The Hyatt Regency London yesterday and The Handbook went down to take a peek. One of the most striking elements is the attention to detail in the interior and design of the bar which is based on the young Churchill and his immense love for his wife, Clementine.
