Does Your Dog Want To Get Married On A Peckham Rooftop?

Everyone loves a wedding! The dress, the hymns, marquees and cake; there’s nothing more special than the solemn vows and the party afterwards, a deeply meaningful combination of the spiritual and plenty of spirits, the bringing together ancient families and oldest friends in a binding forever union. I mean, surely there’s nothing you’d want more for your dog? Yes, the city that’s got everything just struck again, and this time it’s offering your dog, your actual dog, the chance to get married on a rooftop (er, ‘wooftop’, surely?). Could anything be more magical? More momentous? Or more weird? Thanks to […]

Did Ed Sheeran Just Open A Restaurant?

We’re just thinking out loud about something… namely Ed Sheeran’s new restaurant which apparently is a thing. Sneaky Ed has apparently bought a restaurant somewhere in London, rumoured to be Notting Hill, which is unsurprising seeing as Ed loves hills so much (Castle on the HILL and all that). But, aside from this thin on the ground info, we know little else! Ed has teased us with an Insta post, as celebs often do, and has shared a bottle of Ketchup on the gram. This could be because his restaurant will be about all things ketchup, given how much Ed […]

This LA-based diner has flown the nest over the Atlantic ocean launching their very first London venue, and it’s opening tomorrow! On 7th August, this new eatery is landing on Portobello Road and it’s been stirring up a bit of a name for itself. Mainly because of it’s charming name.
