Plum and Spilt Milk: Review

It was Saturday morning, London was that horrible sort of hot, muggy temperature where the tube is a living nightmare and you lose inches just sweating your way through the crowds. For once we craved light foods rather than the usual carb heavy diet and finding ourselves in need of something to fuel our productive day of lying in Green Park, we headed to Plum and Spilt Milk, located inside the Great Northern Hotel, having heard they recently launched a new healthy breakfast menu. Inside it is beautifully elegant, dark blue walls, wooden panelling, high ceilings, hanging lights and simple […]

Swingers Opening In Shoreditch

Winterwell Festival’s founder, Josh Ford, will soon transform an impressive 7000-sq/ft warehouse into an exciting destination that will host London’s new golfing experience, Swingers, and take competitive socialising to a new level.

Arabica: Review

The Arabica Spice Company has been around for 14 years, their restaurant in Borough Market had only been opened in a week when we went down to visit and despite no reviews having been published at that time, it was already packed on a Monday. So far so good. The restaurant features a mix of simple wooden tables or turquoise leather booths, exposed brick walls, arched ceilings, low lighting and they can open up the front which in this heat is life-saving. As the website says the restaurant is an ‘epicurean exploration’ of The Levant, and the menu which is […]

Porky’s BBQ: Review

Following on from the success of their Camden branch, husband and wife team  Simon and Joy Brigg launched a second restaurant over on Bankside recently and so The Handbook team went down to check it out. Inside the restaurant is all exposed brick walls, high sturdy wooden tables and stools, twinkling lights, it’s stripped back but still welcoming and reflects the simple but well-honed menu. We chose however, to sit outside but unfortunately Porky’s is situated on a street which doesn’t seem to catch the sun, so whilst we could see people walking in the light by the river our […]

A Shoreditch Pop-Up

Listen up, we’ve just heard about a pop-up coming to Shoreditch this December that, if you’re super-organised and are already planning your festive work party (well done you), you have to check out. That’s right, this year an Enchanted Nordic Yulefest is popping-up in the heart of Shoreditch. It’s a Christmas experience like no other and is going to make last year’s office party last year look, well, a little deflated. And why? Because it’s going to be a birch tree lined fairyland with sheepskin laden nooks (the place for the obligatory office party romance?) and forget the usual standard […]
