Where To Eat Out In… Greenwich

Oh Greenwich, it’s home to the Cutty Sark, the mahoosive National Maritime Museum, and of course, the O2. Yep, while most of us only ever venture over to Greenwich when one of the big celebs are singing their heart out in front of thousands, we’re always looking for a bite to eat last...


STK: It’s Rare To Find A Steak Restaurant This Good

It could well be down to my age but boy do I love the atmosphere inside STK. Granted, it’s a bit Saint Tropez night club-esque – at least one diner will be wearing something garishly glittery and if you don’t see someone feverishly sipping a brightly-coloured cocktail I’ll eat my hat. But you know what to expect at this stalwart steak joint, whose name is just as “extra” as its interiors. Often described as a  ‘steakhouse for the stiletto set’, STK is attached to the ME Hotel where Aldwych abuts The Strand. It doesn’t slap you in the face with its […]

Posh Picnics: 15 Places Whacking Out The Wicker

Let’s face it, the jubilant thoughts surrounding a picnic after often quashed by the fact that you have to pack it yourself. The sandwiches always end up soggy, the ice always melts out of its packet – probably the reason the sandwiches get soggy – and a juice carton always bursts at some point or another. So, why not have a posh picnic? Let someone else do it for you (for the tune of £1000 if you’re Corrigan’s in Mayfair). And embrace the sunnier climes whilst they last! So, treat yourself! Pop some fizz open at one of London’s various […]

Boris Isn’t The Only Eton Mess In Town: 9 Best Places For Eton Mess

It’s jolly boating weather, so how better to celebrate than to swing together to one of these spots serving some of London’s best Eton Mess.

The dish, full of meringuey, strawberryish goodness is pretty much a national dessert and the perfect summer pudding. So let’s get stuck in…   Manetta’s What: Eton Less Mess Why: […]
