We Review: Vegan Street Food in Camden

What: So it turns out that Camden Market is much more than a thriving metropolis for overpriced goth wear, dubious looking drug alternatives and cheap fast food. Not only have their food stalls improved overall, from which they are part of 1000 plus stalls, but the vegan offerings are plentiful and...

We Review Rabbit

What? Occupying a rather enviable space, half way down the Kings Road, Rabbit is the second restaurant from the Gladwin Brothers (Richard, Oliver and Gregory). Following on from The Shed in Notting Hill, Rabbit continues the guy’s foraged, seasonal approach to cooking. They’re bringing a taste...

We Review: M Restaurant, Victoria

What? “Ah, meester Bond, I’ve been expecting you. Here’s your table, I’ll get you a menu”. Okay, so it’s not quite Dr No, but there’s something distinctly Bond-Villain-Lair about M Restaurant on Victoria Street, a hidden subterranean hideaway beneath the mysterious ‘Zig Zag...

We Review Q Brunch at Quaglino’s

What? Quaglino’s boozy Q brunch has been given an update and with no plans for the day, we took to Mayfair to indulge. New? Certainly not, Quaglino’s has 88 years of heritage behind it, having first opened in 1929. Visited by the Queen in 1953 and subsequently by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor...

We Review: The Connaught Hotel

What: I’ve had the privilege of visiting and reviewing a number of incredible hotels since founding The Handbook twelve years ago, but even I shrieked a squeal of genuine delight (yes literally) when invited to review the Connaught Hotel. Because while it’s underdoubtedly ‘up there’ as one...

The Handbook Reviews Batty Langley’s

What? Batty Langley’s appears in a moment as you turn onto the cobbled stones of Folgate Street, leaving noisy Bishopsgate behind. Immediately on the left of the street, there’s the Londoner’s favourite, The Water Poet pub; adjacent to it is the entrance to Batty Langley’s

We Review The Bletchley…Shhh

What: The Bletchley is an immersive, World War 2 themed pop-up where you use your cunning and deductive skills to earn yourself tailor-made cocktails. New? The original pop-up covertly opened in March 2017 and after 7410 applications it went permanent in July. Where? The code cracking experience...

We Review Bokan’s Vegan Tasting Menu

What: Bokan has launched a special 5-course vegan tasting menu for World Vegan Month and while there are no animals on the menu you can enjoy a bird’s eye view from the restaurant. New? The tasting menu itself is new for World Vegan Month but the restaurant already does and will continue to...

We Review Balthazar’s High Five Afternoon Tea

What? To celebrate their fifth anniversary in London, Balthazar has launched a new tea – The High Five Afternoon Tea. Head Pastry Chef Régis Beauregard has looked back over the cakes of the last five years, to find the most popular, the cakes that always get a “high five”. I say, “high...

We Review London’s Smallest Grand Hotel

What? Thomas Aske and Tristan Stephenson, the duo behind London’s award-winning bars Worship Street Whistling Shop and whisky bar, Black Rock, have become hoteliers. Admittedly on a very small scale, The Napoleon is a hotel which features just one bedroom and three bars; could this be London’s...
