Find Your Blind Spot

Birthday wishes are in order for St Martins Lane which turned 15 this year, oh to be 15 again. And they’re celebrating with the launch of their new bar, Blind Spot. You’d be forgiven if when you walk in you can’t seem to see it, because it’s hidden behind the façade of a boutique tea counter. Yep that’s right, during the day the counter will serve tea which guests can drink in the Den or lobby, but step through the concealed door and you’ll find yourself in a bar inspired by a hunting lodge along with the aromas and colours […]

Printworks Kitchen

What: Wholesome hipster food Where: 20-26 Rosebery Avenue Clerkenwell Why You Should Go There: To continue on your quest of hipster wannabe Favourite Thing We Ate: The Pea And Mint Soup Printworks Kitchen. It sounds like a colourful, hustling bustling spot. I know we shouldn’t form expectations from just a name in our head – but we do. From the outset I could see what they were getting at, they were jumping on the whole hipster/healthy whole foods bandwagon that has dominated my early twenties thus far.  On first impression it was definitely clean here. If you had dropped something on the floor […]

From Trading Money to Drinks

Banks and pubs, you might not put them together, well except when you need to drown your sorrows after seeing your overdraft (or to celebrate that you haven’t fallen into it, a more rare occurrence) but now one is becoming the other as the former site of the Bank of New Zealand, 91 Gresham Street is getting a new lease of life as it opens up as The Trading House pub next month.     The Victorian pub will invoke the spirit of the East India Trading Company as well as London’s nautical heritage and most of the Grade II […]

The Henry Root Doggy Dinner

Both you and your pet can enjoy a three course meal followed by a talk from special speakers such as Gracie Amico, CEO of pet lifestyle website Pets Pyjamas, and a representative from Battersea […]

Golden Arrow Tantalising Truffle Menu

When I glanced at my menu across the computer screen in my borderline office atmosphere I wasn’t sure if this menu was going to be a mutton dressed as lamb botched job. But I suppose it’s always better to surpass expectations that to let them down. In saying this, when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised the lights sparkled  like luminescent pufferfish – great interior decor. The ambiance was smart yet unpretentious a hard balance to capture, especially in a hotel. This wasn’t just another hotel restaurant. This was better. The Kelverton wild mushroom risotto with Somerset and Wiltshire white […]

The Richmond: style & substance in Hackney

New to the Dalston scene is the Richmond, a former and slightly frightening Egyptian themed venue complete with inside tree-houses… Anyway, all that’s been done away with and replaced with a quietly chic neighbourhood vibe thanks to interior decorator and antiques dealer Adam Bray. Duo behind the new venture are long-time pals, Aussie chef Brett Redman of Borough Market’s Elliot’s fame and Margaret Crow, stylist for the likes of i-D and Love magazine. Dishes are built around oysters, comfort food, and a raw bar serving a dizzying variety of oysters, clams and a rotating selection of carpaccios and tartars with […]
