2nd Dirty Bones Opens

This September our Soho foodie haven, Kingly Court is going to see the arrival of Dirty Bones on its top floor and the food is going to be well and truly dirty…in the best possible way. Forget about courgetti, quinoa and nut butter this is all about American comfort food, the sort of food that Instagram was made for, the sort of food that your cheat day/week/life needs to revolve around. We’re talking The Mac Daddy Burger – a burger topped with pulled beef short ribs, mac ‘n’ cheese and Dirty Bones barbecue sauce and Dirty Bone pickles and BBQ […]

Doggy Disco At M Restaurant

It’s a well-known fact that as a nation, Britons are obsessed with pooches. Over the last few years, we have seen doggy apparel lines, dog hotels and even canine-friendly ice cream! It seems like the only aspect of human life yet to be conquered by our four-legged friends is the nightlife scene…that is, until now. This September, M Restaurants will be hosting a Pedigree Pooch Party with a difference by bringing the all-singing, all-dancing Doggy Disco to London with a back to school twist to celebrate the start of a new school year. Yes, that’s right, not only do you […]

The Lobster Bar opens in Hackney

Following on from their tapas restaurants Ivy’s and Little Ivy’s, tomorrow Cristine Leone and Christina Lahaniati are opening The Lobster Bar on Richmond Road in Hackney and as you can imagine there is a lot of lobster. A lot. Quirky but well put together, the menu is a fusion of nationalities, inspired by the owners’ Greek and Brazilian seaside upbringings and their mutual love of travelling and unsurprisingly the lobster is the star of the show, being served however you desire; in a roll, grilled, tossed through spaghetti… we have been eyeing up the lobster benedict. If lobster isn’t your […]

The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone Opens

In recent years London’s boutique hotels have made a name for themselves, people are after something a little more personal, a little more unique and something which feels more like a home from home (there’s also less chance of getting lost in the maze of corridors and rooms, just saying) and the latest boutique hotel to open is The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone. Its sister hotel, The Zetter Townhouse Clerkenwell is said to feel less like a hotel and more like the house of a fabulous and eccentric great aunt (her name is Wilhelmina if you’re wondering) and the Marylebone addition […]

The London Royal Tea

As we all know afternoon tea is a very British tradition, all thanks to the Duchess of Bedford being rather peckish between meals and Hotel Café Royal is launching The London Royal Tea on the 14th September which will be a celebration of both London and British history. Served in the iconic Oscar Wilde Bar, the afternoon tea service will begin with a bell being rung to signal the start of service which harks back to the 1800s when the muffin men would ring their bells to say the muffins were ready, that is until 1839 when it was prohibited.

Taking things back to basics, Selfridges is also becoming the first retailer to stock beautifully packaged foraged ingredients and wild foods for those who want to become slightly more adventurous cooks […]

8 Places to Celebrate Game Season

Apart from our huge population of pigeons being in London means we don’t tend to see many birds let alone grouse or pheasants. Whilst our country counterparts might laugh at our lack of nature, it doesn’t mean we can’t join them to celebrate the start of the game season. As we move into autumn it’s time to ditch the salads and get stuck into pheasant stews, grouse pie and believe it or not squirrel. It’s time to bring your A game to these 8 places:

Check out our guide to 5 Of The Best Sunday Lunches and see how you can get your Yorkshire pudding fix with minimal effort.
