Homeslice Fitzrovia Review- What We Thought

Remember when we told you about the opening of Homeslice in Fitzrovia? Well finding ourselves in need of a cure to a miserable Wednesday we decided to head over to Wells Street to gorge ourselves on 20” pizzas and prosecco…as you do. Walking up from Oxford Street I thought I had missed Homeslice it’s quite a long way down Wells Street, but there it was, the awning and neon pizza sign welcoming Londoners in from the rain. With Neal’s Yard being as successful as it is, they’ve kept the formula pretty much the same, great music, drinks on tap and […]

Charles Worthington Express Menu review

At The Handbook we love telling you about the best new places to eat with the hottest new menus but today we have a slightly different menu to tempt you with, the Charles Worthington’s new Express Menu especially designed for ‘time poor’ City workers.Expect the same treatments but with a chunk of time knocked off by recruiting an extra pair of hands to help. Treatments like a blow dry can be completed in 15 minutes, a colour regrowth and blow dry in an hour, and a half head of highlights and blow dry in 75 minutes. My flavour of the moment […]

Barry’s Bootcamp review – what we thought

If you are into your fitness and live in London you will almost certainly have heard of Barry’s Bootcamp, the popular fitness craze that first hit the UK 2 years ago. Originally hailing from the USA, the one hour classes are a mix of cardio and weight training designed to give you a full body workout.

Jago Review – What We Thought

The other day finding ourselves on the hunt for supper in the Commercial Street area we decided not to be lured into the curry houses with promises of more than we could eat and drink for a mere fiver (not a good look on a Tuesday) and instead we wandered up Hanbury Street to Jago. Jago is the work of Louis Solley (former head chef at Ottolenghi), Hugo Thurston and Vinny Burke and is said to be bringing a taste of the Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine back to London with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. Of course East London still has […]

Li Veli review – what we thought

Covent Garden is a hotspot for fantastic bars, restaurants and nightlife so it wasn’t surprising that I found myself enjoying my time at Italian bistro, Li Veli. Thanks to its great location, a window seat is the best in the house so you can people watch while you eat. I was instantly struck by the cream-coloured interior which gives the venue a warm, spacious feel and when the sun set and candles were adorned around the place, it made it quite romantic. The menu showcases an authentic taste of Southern Italy plus their very own namesake wines which can also […]

Skinny rebel workout – what we thought

Oh you’ve never heard of Skinny Rebel? That’s because it’s brand spanking new and it’s about to change your whole fitness game. Created by the people behind Train Dirty, Skinny Rebel is typically geared towards women over men, and is set apart from normal training by the inclusion of an altitude mask which is worn throughout the PT session. Said mask only goes over your mouth and nose as it works to restrict the amount of oxygen you breath in. The point is to reduce oxygen levels in the air you breath and therefore circulating in your blood so the […]

Lotus review – what we thought

Traditionally Londoners tend to shy away from tourist heavy areas for their dining needs as the food quality isn’t the best and honestly, locals should know better. With this in mind I was slightly wary when I came out of Leicester Square station and only a short walk away I saw spied Lotus. Upon entry I was surprised by the décor with its stark black and silver colour scheme, definitely not the usual Indian restaurant interior. I dread to think how many courses I got through but the calories have already been digested so I can’t feel too guilty and […]
