The New Decadent, Bottomless-Brunch You Need to Try

What: Brunch, everyone Londoner’s favourite time of the week, the meal that can cure a hangover, start a hangover and means you can technically eat twice as much as it’s two meals in one, although, not actually advisable of course. When we heard that Sea Containers had just introduced new...


Bathrooms Of Instagram

Is your loo Instagram ready? Probably not (the bathroom here at The Handbook is currently being plagued by ‘the phantom sh**tter’, so count us out), but unlike us thankfully the restaurants, bars and hotels of London not only have their loo brush game sorted, but they’ve got a...

How Do You Like Your Eggs in the Morning? London’s Best Breakfasts

Breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day, or so they say, but it’s also the one we often “don’t have time” for. We’ve all seen the adverts of someone running out of the door, stumbling over shoes at the bottom of the stairs and grabbing a slice of burnt...
