We Review: Arthur Hooper’s Vegan Menu

What: Arthur Hooper’s is a European restaurant in London Bridge that takes the hustle and bustle and history of Borough Market and brings it cleanly into the 21st century. No wandering through the stalls and queuing in the cold, Arthur Hooper’s will have you seated in comfortable black leather seats and feasting on deliciously put together dishes. New? While Arthur Hooper’s opened in May last year, its namesake, fruit salesman Arthur Hooper, has a slightly richer history as he occupied 8 Stoney Street back in the days when Queen Victoria ruled. Where? 8 Stoney Street, London Bridge, SE1 9AA […]

We all know that London has a problem with air pollution. Our streets aren’t exactly clean and we all know how much it is affecting our health, but before we all up sticks and head for the countryside, it’s not all doom and gloom.

Dancing to End the Stigma Around Mental Health

If you had a broken leg you probably wouldn’t be embarrassed about telling your housemates; if you had to take some time off work to treat a kidney infection it’s unlikely you’d think twice and if your friend told you she had just been diagnosed with cancer there’s no way you’d tell her to ‘act like she didn’t have it and maybe it’ll go.’ Funny then how when it comes to our most complex organ being ill, the brain, we do all these things. There is still a stigma around mental health. We might be scared to discuss it, we […]

Singapore Airlines and the Singapore Tourism Board have flown Hawker Chan, Head Chef at legendary Asian street food stall Chan Hong Men, over to pop up here for three days only […]
