And founder Daisy Green certainly has form, she’s already made a mark on London cafe culture with openings including Timmy Green in […]

The result is both worthy AND tasty and this May it comes to Mayfair. The Moveable Feast has already circulated round Liverpool, Leeds, Soho and The City.

Bottomless Pizza at Gordon Ramsay’s New Restaurant

He might normally make a lot of noise in the kitchen, but Gordon Ramsay has rather quietly opened Street Pizza within Bread Street Kitchen. He’s kept things casual, saying that ‘pizza doesn’t need to be complicated’ so for £15 you’ll get bottomless sourdough pizza served by the slice in five flavours: Margherita, pepperoni, charred aubergine, corn and chorizo and a daily changing special. Cocktails will start at just £6, female DJs will take to the decks throughout the week, you can’t book and most importantly (after the pizza) there’s a Negroni ice-cream machine. As Ramsay says,  “If there’s one thing […]

And it’s a Not Afternoon Tea because you won’t find scones and tea, but cakes and cocktails. Inspired by London’s iconic shows, the new afternoon tea will take you on a journey of some of the most-loved productions. The first act will begin […]
