Spaghetti House – Goodge Street

Pasta - Spaghetti House

An Original Italian in Goodge Street – Spaghetti House:   While I’m not quite old enough to have been around when Spaghetti House in Goodge Street first opened in 1955, to my generation foods like pizza and spaghetti (the long sort rather than the stuff that came in cans from Heinz) were exotic and in […]

The Ealing Park Tavern, Ealing

The Ealing Park Tavern

ETM goes West – Ealing Park Tavern: Situated on the Brentford border of South Ealing, The Ealing Park Tavern is the latest addition to the ETM group of gastro pubs across London which include several of my personal favourite refined haunts such as ‘The Jugged Hare’ (nestled behind the Barbican Centre) and Chelsea’s ‘The Botanist’ (occupying […]

Jumeirah Carlton Tower – Cocktails in the Rib Room Bar

Steak and Chips Rib Room Snack

Post Christmas Cocktails, Rib Room Bar, Jumeirah Carlton Tower: That time of year after all the Christmas celebrations are over can be just a bit bland.  You know – from a diary full of fun it’s all too easy to end up staying in, detoxing and trying your best to cut the calories and the […]

Chakra – Fine Dining in Notting Hill

chakra main

Stepping out in Notting Hill: It’s funny how us Londoners tend to stick to our own patch of town which is familiar and we only venture further north or south if one of our friends dares to suggest that we “try somewhere new”! That’s why I enjoy doing these reviews because it does take me […]

Hedone – Fine Dining in Chiswick

Flame Grilled Dorset Mackerel - Hedone

Ticking off my Wishlist – a Visit to Hedone, Chiswick: I eat out a lot; restaurants that stay on my wishlist for any time tend to be expensive, out of the way or have a frighteningly long wait list for a table.  Hedone may be close to Chiswick Park tube, but it’s not an area […]

Inn the Park – St James’s Park

Cocktails Inn the Park 2

A Bigger than Expected Brunch at Inn the Park: Brunch menus are often egg-heavy.  Although I don’t ‘not-eat’ eggs if they are served to me, I’d never choose a dish like eggs Benedict or coddled eggs.  I like omelettes, souffle and I’m quite happy with quail eggs or even with boiled egg bits in a […]

The Wallace Collection and Restaurant, Marylebone

Wallace Collection - Armour

Art and Food in Marylebone – The Wallace Collection: My first encounter with Peyton & Byrne, the restaurant group, was at the Royal Academy.  I’m a long standing friend of the RA, one of my favourite galleries in London, and can remember being delighted by supper after a late night viewing of one of the […]

#ZAIKALONDON Zaika at One Kensington – London

Zaika Biryani

Comfortable Indian Dining in Style at Zaika, Kensington: Although Kensington High Street is great for shopping and One Kensington is only a stone’s throw from the Albert Hall, there isn’t a great wealth of restaurants at the Kensington Park end of the road.  So, hearing that the Tamarind Group had re-opened Zaika at One Kensington […]

Grands Crus Dinner and Tasting at Five Fields Restaurant

herdwick Mutton

Learning More About Grands Crus and a Fine Dining Dinner. For a couple of years now I’ve been lucky enough to go to the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2012 vintage showcase at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Although I find it fascinating to taste some of the finest wines in the world, […]

Crocker’s Folly – English Eccentricity in St John’s Wood

Crockers Folly

Crocker’s Folly Guest Feature by Natalie York: From the outside Crocker’s Folly is just an unobtrusive little pub near Lords Cricket ground. It was constructed by a Mr. Crocker whose apparent folly was to believe that Marylebone Station would be built next door, he was unfortunately mistaken and missed out on all that bustling train […]
