The Manhattans Project at POND – What We Thought

Dalston is rapidly becoming the place to go for adventurous foodies, bored of the endless chains opening up across the city. By the time you arrive at POND you’ll have already had a bit of an adventure, and not the most glamorous; out of the train station, off the main road, through a lively square (think dominoes and jukeboxes) and into their fairylit courtyard. The location is probably both a blessing and a curse, the venue resembling a pop-up which has extended its stay due to popular demand. A well-travelled concept with less well travelled (read local) ingredients, the menu […]

Beef & Brew Review – What We Thought

Minimal. My first impression when arriving at Beer and Brew, the new no-frills steak house in Kentish Town from classically trained Michelin chef Jessica Simmons and ex-financial director Dan Nathan. Kentish Town is very unfamiliar territory for me but the restaurant was easy to find just opposite the tube station. Nestled between a pharmacy and a Western Union, its refreshingly clean, white tiled frontage set the tone for the butchery-themed interior. Greeted and seated by Dan, his passion was clear to see as he talked us through the menu with everything locally sourced where possible. Even the Highwayman gin in […]

Sauterelle Review: What We Thought

Last time I visited Sauterelle I knew I was onto something good, first of all there is the location, right in the middle of Bank making it perfect for lunch meetings or drinks after work with my finance friends. Secondly the fact that it isn’t just in Bank, it’s in the magnificent Royal Exchange originally the city’s prime trading floor, architecturally it’s beautiful, when you go, promise you’ll look up and take in the beautiful design, ornate ceilings and grand arches. Thirdly, the food was superb.   So this year after a refurbishment, we decided it was about high time […]

Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel Review – What We Thought

When I learned of the opportunity to review a hotel in the city of Exeter, I knew I had to take it. I’m a massive fan of the Devon city, as it’s full of historical sights, dainty tea rooms and plenty of independent shops – all perfect for a weekend getaway! I had been invited to stay for the night at the Mercure Exeter Southgate Hotel and after a long week of working a bit and socialising a lot, I was in need of a rest. I arrived into the hotel’s lobby and was immediately impressed. The reception is grand, […]

Flemings Mayfair Review – What We Thought

Earlier in the year luxury hotel, Flemings Mayfair had a bit of makeover, you know just the average, a lick of paint here and a £14 million refurbishment there. When they revealed the new look they also uncovered The Drawing Room, a new space, in which guests can enjoy in a drink or have afternoon tea.  We headed there on a Saturday afternoon for their Ruinart Rosé afternoon tea.  Emulating the look of a regency drawing room; the room has high-ceilings, large sash windows and the original 1851 fireplace. The walls features beautiful de Gournay hand-painted wall paper, depicting early […]

The Gate review – what we thought

London leads the way for veggie friendly restaurants and yet they can still be a struggle to find, The Gate is no different as although Hammersmith is good location you wouldn’t be blamed for walking straight past the venue. A sandwich board with the name on signals that we are the correct place, so we meander around the courtyard to the main entrance and then up some stairs to the actual restaurant which is nice and worth the mini trek.It’s already half full when we arrive which gives it a comfortable buzzing atmosphere without being over crowded but fills up […]

Lucky Pig Fulham – What We Thought

Normally sticking to my home area of East London, I knew that taking my geographically challenged friend and myself to Fulham was never going to be easy. However, after some avid google mapping and a few squeaks of ‘where the hell are we?’ we found our destination. With its bold signage and grand entrance, there was no mistaking that we had arrived at our destination. Lucky Pig has two venues, with the first having an underground speakeasy vibe. Tonight though, we were at the second venue, which acts as the prelude to its sister site (a bit like how the […]
