Scallops, Steak and Shortbread at The White Horse

The infamous White Horse in Parsons Green has not only been refurbished, but it has also shaken up its menu, The Handbook team headed over on Friday night to see what was going on and try some of the great food they had to offer. We were sat upstairs in the dining room, lit by candles, it’s a snug retreat from the bustling bar downstairs. After some olives, we started with the Scallops with roasted squash puree, chestnut butter and bacon, in one word it was: gorgeous. The scallops worked so well with the roasted squash, the presentation was creative, […]

Hawksmoor Air Street: We try the ultimate London steakhouse

Hawksmoor recently opened a new outpost to add to its celebrated restaurants in Shoreditch, Seven Dials and Guildhall, eateries known for high quality, expertly sourced steaks. Hawksmoor Air Street, aimed to bring an added extra to its already successful formula; a seafood slant.  The restaurant epitomises Art Deco; polished wood veneer, tasteful green leather upholstery, stained glass, vintage mirrors with a lively, buzzing atmosphere. The menu did not disappoint. We started with cocktails, sampling the Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew (50p from each one served goes to Football Gambia) and a Rogerio’s Batida, and quickly moved onto our starters opting for […]

The GrEAT British Restaurant

The GrEAT British which has recently opened on North Audley Street in Mayfair, wanted to create an atmosphere which was somewhere between a traditional British cafe and top London restaurant without the pretentiousness and high prices, but still with seriously good food. They have done just that. With high wooden panel walls, table tops made from Victorian fireplace tiles, and low warm lighting, you certainly don’t feel as if you are in the bustle of modern London, more a little country town. This is even before the food, think Sussex cheese sausages, roast Suffolk lamb, Devon clams and, kedgeree. All […]

Game Birds at Corrigans

While we're all aware that the Glorious Twelfth marks the start of the game season, it takes a real aficionado to know that it's the first frosts that really get the pheasant, grouse and woodcock in flight. Frost. Check. So this week, we decided to see if Corrigan's of Mayfair had bagged themselves a winner… We went for the humorously titled Game Birds Menu (£25pp) where you get a choice of three plates out of a selection including Pressed heritage beetroot, Salad of teal, Nettle gnocchi (although admittedly this hasn't been shot) and Mallard and brown butter. Fave by far […]

Mews of Mayfair

Discovering a new after work destination which although you've passed it by numerous times you've never really grasped its true potential, gives you the same rather smug feeling of satisfaction that comes from shopping your closet and finding a perfectly on-trend combo you'd completely forgotten you'd bought! I almost don't want to share Mews of Mayfair but that would be as selfish as concealing the existence of a new Marc Jacobs. Founded four years ago by London entrepreneur, James Robson, it's tucked away in Lancashire Court betwixt the shopping Meccas of Brook Street and New Bond Street. I stopped by for […]
