The Brunch Where Champagne Arrives Via Your Own Personal Train

Chew chew! All aboard the Tattinger Express, a non-stopping service straight to your liver. Someone at Burger & Lobster has decided that the most efficient way to serve Champagne is to send it via trainset, and so for the restaurant’s new bottomless Champagne brunch they’ll be firing up the miniature railway and sending your drinks on the length of the nine-metre bar. Putting a whole new meaning to ‘the fat controller’, you can gorge on the full a la carte menu, which includes their ‘famous’ prime cut Nebraskan 10 ounce burger or wild Atlantic lobster (apparently one of the few […]

Where to Party Like It’s 1929

Since its opening in 1929, Quaglino’s has always been the place to see and be seen. It’s been London’s watering hole for A-listers, the arts set and royalty. Princess Diana snuck through the kitchens, a table was permanently reserved for Princess Margaret and it was the first public restaurant ever visited by a reigning monarch when the Queen and Prince Philip dined in 1956. Having survived both the recession of the early 1990s and 2000s it has continued to be the go-to place for partying, entertainment and no doubt side of scandalous behaviour. When smoking was in, everyone turned into […]

There’s a Brand New Beauty and Beast Bottomless Brunch

When reviewing restaurants you always hope that the chef will read the article, and if they take onboard the feedback you gave about the chips not needing to be served in a mini deep fat fryer (whoever thought that was a good idea needs to have a word with themselves) then even better. What you don’t expect is for the restaurant to take your words and use them to create a whole new brunch… but M Restaurants has gone there.  They’ve taken Bill Knott of the Financial Times words “Stylish and ambitious…Michael Reid’s menu matches beauty with the beast” and […]

Awesome Afternoon Teas

This New Afternoon Tea Celebrates London’s Icons

I’ve always been a fan of gherkins – I’ll eat them out of the jar if I’m given a fork. I understand though that gherkins belong to the same family as sprouts, Marmite and the Kardashians, they’re divisive. What about a chocolate gherkin though? More specifically The Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe, if we’re being pedantic) made from white chocolate filled with a dark chocolate ganache. I think that would be a yes from everyone. Why all the gherkin chat though? Well, following on from the success of their Tale As Old As Time afternoon tea, Town House at The […]

Chew Chew! The Michelin Starred Chefs Going On The Rails

Some things are just quintessentially British; football hooligans tearing apart a Spanish café, Jacob Rees-Mogg spouting off about poor people, losing at cricket or losing at Brexit. But nothing beats eating on a train. And not a gently defrosted sausage roll on the delayed Virgin service to somewhere ghastly up north. No, proper eating. We’re talking silver-service dining on deep plush seats gazing out onto the rolling British countryside while the tracks clickerty-clack beneath you and somewhere in the distance the locomotive chuff chuffs its way toward a viaduct. And that’s where Belmond British Pullman comes in. Belmond British Pullman are the world’s […]
