Union Street Café Review – What We Thought

The name is misleading; ‘Union Street Café’ is situated just off Southwark’s Union Street, yes, so that part I understand, but it’s not a café, it’s an Italian restaurant, inspired by Northern Italy’s laid-black glamour. The interior suits the quirky, trendy history of the area and I can’t help thinking anyone walking past who didn’t know it was a Gordon Ramsay venture would have no idea, even once they were inside. Calmer and less IN-YOUR-FACE than you might expect – but then again, none of his 14 London restaurants are like that. Normally I’d say a particular dish was a […]

The Wine Bar @ York & Albany Review

York & Albany may represent quintessential England with their dining but just a few steps over you find yourself in what feels like the middle of an authentic vineyard with their Wine Bar. Upon entering the intimate space you really feel like you’ve been transported to somewhere much more romantic with cobbled floors, dark wood tables and of course, an abundance of wine. A small kitchen area takes up the corner space of the room and they use it to concoct small plates, akin to tapas except they are made with British ingredients, to quell any hunger as you work through the plethora […]

Le Garrick Review – What We Thought

Let me tell you about my very real French love affair. It all started in Covent Garden; I was wined, I was dined and I left feeling like I had experienced a true slice of France. I wasn’t in love with a Monsieur Darcy, no, much better, the thing that had left me all a flutter? Le Garrick. The family run bistro and brasserie sits unassumingly and humbly between Garrick Street and Floral Street. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but that’s what’s great about it; red gingham tables line the pavements and inside the small ground floor […]

The Landmark Review – What We Thought

For me, a trip to Marylebone on a Friday night usually entails navigating crowds of commuters and grabbing an overpriced sandwich before cramming myself onto an oversubscribed train. Not last Friday though, instead I swapped London’s busiest railway stations for one of its most luxurious hotels.  The Landmark London is situated mere metres away from the station and slap bang on the Marylebone road (one of the most polluted in the UK apparently), but all this seems a million miles away once you step into the polished foyer of the Landmark. What strikes you first is the sheer size of […]

Tiny Leaf Review – what we thought

For a newly launched restaurant, Tiny Leaf is already proving popular with locals as it was packed by the time we had finished our meal. Perhaps it is the vegetarian restaurant’s ethos of zero food waste that the public is finding so appealing with food donated from local suppliers and bigger establishments such as Planet Organic. The menu therefore will change daily depending on what is surplus especially the Market Plate which is a daily market selection. The menu is limited with only four starters and four mains with vague descriptions of the ingredients rather than an explanation of the […]

Tavern At 15 Review – What We Thought

Located underneath “London Capital Club”, Tavern at 15 offers guests the chance to experience life as a member of a private club without having to make the financial commitment. Unfortunately, presumably due to lack of public awareness, Tavern at 15 didn’t offer much in the way of atmosphere. The near-empty dining area was far from representative of the number of people out and about in the London Bridge area, and was a stark contrast from the over-flowing bars just 2 doors away. Lack of promotion certainly seems to be hindering the progress of a restaurant with great potential as both […]
