Hush – Cinema in The Courtyard

Remember that scene in Grease when everyone grabs their cars and heads to the outdoor cinema? In the days of yearning for Danny Zucko’s and dreaming of Sandy, this afternoon adventure was on the top of any girl’s bucket list. But alas, living in England, meant a vintage convertible car was far from practical and romantic evenings at outdoor cinemas normally ended in disaster. However, thanks to Hush in Mayfair, this no longer needs to be an issue. Yes, the luxury venue will see the return of Classics in the Courtyard again this year, transforming their famous courtyard into a […]

Meantime Mondays: Burgers and Beer

How was your Monday?  Dreadful? Slow? Still battling the two day hangover? Well next week you can forget the Monday misery as Ben’s Canteen have joined forces with Meantime Brewery  for burgers and schooners (they’re a glass if you didn’t know, don’t worry we didn’t either). From 5pm every Monday you’ll be able to get your hands on a limited edition Burger – they’ve kicked things off with the Ultimate Lamb Burger topped with BC Lamb Mayonnaise and mint salsa verde and a Schooner of Meantime Beer for just £10…sounds pretty ideal to us. They’ve also made all their regular […]

Heddon Street Kitchen

Gordon Ramsay, a veritable institution in the culinary (and celebrity) world, adds yet another refined restaurant to his luxury portfolio. Heddon Street Kitchen is inspired by its City sister, Bread Street Kitchen, but boasts its very own premier location, in the heart of Regent Street’s Food Quarter. Set across two floors, its glamorous interior closely resembles the classy industrial chic of Bread Street Kitchen, but with more gorgeous golden hues; making it appear aglow with a warming Instagram filter.

The Wild Game Co. Pop-Up

Meat lovers across the capital rejoice as The Wild Game Co. launches its very first stand-alone pop-up dining experience in the foodie’s paradise that is Charlotte Street, and its surrounding area. When it comes to wild game and venison, The Wild Game Co. are about as authentic as it gets; founded by Scotsman Andy Waugh, all their meat is directly sourced from the Scottish Highlands before being, to put it delicately – ‘prepared’ – by his family’s game-butchering business. Andy and his clan of ‘kilt-wearing chefs’ have been making quite the impression on the London dining scene since their beginning […]

Shoryu Ramen, Soho Review

Japanese food is up there with my favourite cuisines but having never ventured to this particular establishment before I was intrigued to see what they would have to offer. The restaurant looks quite unassuming from the outside but inside it takes on the appearance of a cosy Japanese Ramen bar. It’s cosily lit, dark walls and wooden detailing. We were sat at the front of the restaurant in a reasonably narrow space but go out the back and it opens out into a sizeable area, even with a private dining room downstairs. We started by meeting Mimi, restaurant manager and […]
