Farmer J: Healthy Lunches, Fast

London’s most exciting new restaurants tend to be places to save for a Friday night drink, smart weekend lunch or mid-week dinner but Farmer J, opening on the 9th May, will be somewhere for you to add to your working lunch hit-list. Out with the meal deals and in with hearty, filling and imaginative weekday fuel. Farmer J will specialise in field trays; chargrilled meat, fish, vegetables and grains in what resembles a nutritionists’ dream meal. If food on a tray makes you think of McDonalds, school dinners or something in between then think again – roasted Mediterranean vegetables, Harissa […]

The Savoy Launches Spring Afternoon Tea

Being young is overrated these days, it’s all about longevity: we have the Queen turning 90, a celebration of 400 years of Shakespeare and The Savoy serving afternoon teas for over 125 years. Their latest tea is their new offering for spring which sees two iconic British greats come together to reflect the ever-so-slightly warmer months. The sandwiches for the new afternoon tea will include options like coronation chicken on olive bread and Scottish smoked salmon with lemon infused crème fresh on malted bread plus of course, scones with jam and clotted cream, because what’s a tea without scones? The Savoy’s […]

Hanger SW6: The Butcher’s Cut

Called the ‘butcher’s cut’ because butchers traditionally would hold it back for themselves knowing how good it was; the hanger steak is often overlooked but it’s full of flavour and much more affordable than, say, a rib-eye; which is why it’s going to take centre stage at the aptly named Hanger SW6, opening next month in Fulham. The 60-cover restaurant will feature a downstairs liquor bar and is the first solo venture from restauranteur Patrick Falla (he’s previously worked with D&D and JW Marriott) joined by Head Chef James Burton (Searcy’s at The Gherkin). With a modern, experimental style the menu […]

The Gin Bar Opens: Over 14,000 Different G&Ts

We don’t need to tell you how much Londoners love gin – that one is a given. What we can tell you though is that you should forget the places which claim to have the largest gin selection in London because from next Monday that title will go to the Holborn Dining Room at Rosewood London with the launch of their Gin Bar. With a British emphasis to the restaurant in general, it only seems fitting that their next spirit offering embodies a very British love and so the walls will be adorned with 400 different gins. Yes, 400.  The […]

How to Live Like a Local in: Peckham

It’s been up-and-coming forever, but it’s true: Peckham is a great place to live. A lively restaurant scene, plenty of unique and quirky bars, and a community-focused high-street full of independent shops give Peckham a real buzz. Despite growing popularity, Peckham has managed to keep its individuality, which is good news for locals and visitors alike. But since Peckham is low-key, you might not know about the very best places to eat, drink and be merry. Here’s our definitive list, revealing how the locals do it in Peckham.

Playboy Club launches The Tale Bar

While we can’t offer you time travel per se, what we can do is inform you that Playboy Club is taking us back to their golden age with the launch of The Tale Bar. It will represent the true essence of Playboy’s heritage and sophistication and can be found in place of Salvatore’s Bar as the namesake is no longer at the venue. The make-over will see the cocktail bar immerse guests in classic Playboy heritage with vintage imagery and time-pieces which help to portray the club’s famous history in London since the 60’s. Some things that won’t change will […]

The Waterside Garden Opens at Rotunda

And so it begins, London’s terraces, gardens and al fresco dining areas are starting to reopen after a winter that felt as long as something out of GoT.

Head to Kings Cross restaurant, Rotunda and you’ll find that their terrace has been transformed into ‘The Waterside Garden’ in partnership with Champagne house Perrier-Jouët. Step off the streets, through the scented floral archway and into a garden overlooking Regent’s Canal created by charity, Global Generation. It’ll be filled with ivy, white roses, wild strawberries, herbs and the Perrier-Jouet signature flower, […]

Winemaker Dinners at The Covent Garden Hotel

Habitually bluffing your way through restaurant wine menus? That’s OK, most people just make it up as they go along, but here is your chance to get to know your wines; the different grapes, varietals and vintages. Here’s a question for you: What is the difference between a sweet and fruity wine? If you have just answered ‘there is no difference’ (as most people do), then sorry to say it but you’re wrong. We’ll throw you a bone: Dry wine can taste sweet, but it’s not; that’s what winemakers called fruity. Get it? If not, here is the event for […]
