London Restaurant Review: Steam & Rye

I'm always excited by a new restaurant opening, especially one   We went to sample the newly opened prohibition style, Steam and Rye in the City. A beautiful, charlston dressed host showed us through a packed bar to our table.  It is Christmas party season and at 9pm it's in full swing, with a trio of 1920s style singers on stage. the...

Review: Bath Spa the perfect place for a romantic getaway

Spending Valentines Day on an open top roof thermae spa with the one you love to revitalise, radiate and relax you both sounds like the perfect way to spend the most romantic day of the year to me.

Sophisticated, intimate and relaxing atmosphere. Welcome to Boisdales in Canary Wharf

Its hard to find a perfectly romantic and sophisticated restaurant thats also relaxed and intimate enough to have an enjoyable yet unique evening. Boisdales however, does just that. With the live music from Jordan marsh's rockin' three. 'Blame it on the boogie.' The rich red walls and a view of neighbouring Canary Wharf's highrise buildings. Boisdales offers the opportunity...

Review: LIMBO

Somewhere between rapture and damnation lies the world of LIMBO. A fantastical cosmos of fire eating, gravity defying chaos which beckons you inside with a lustful grin. LIMBO is a unique blend of circus, gig and general jaw dropping antics which leave the audience riveted and slightly perturbed. Watching supposed human beings bend themselves in half, scamper up poles and...

Along the affluent Curzon Street in Mayfair lies one of London's many Middle-Eastern haunts, Mamounia Lounge.

Upon approaching Mamounia Lounge in Mayfair you are greeted by the...

10 Reasons to visit Everyman Cinema (Canary Wharf)

I could say one simple word to describe Everyman Cinema in Canary Wharf. 'WOW', and I can easily end this article right now by simply saying, 'YOU MUST GO TO THIS CINEMA'. But a 2 lined paragraphed wouldn't be fair to the time and effect put in place to make Everyman Cinema my new home for films. So I thought I...

REVIEW – Sarastro Restaurant in Drury Lane

In our search to find the idea date location we thought we'd check out one of Central London's querkist restaurants.

It's a Turkish restaurant and captures this theme with a setting taken straight from Arabian Nights. Velvet table clothes and gilt furniture gives...

Review – #flavourdates @the_snowcenter Indoor Skiing

Restaurant Review – Dirty Bones

Quirky, loud and un-apologetically brash food spots are very popular in London right now; MeatLiquor, Bone Daddies et al pride themselves on serving London's cool crowd with delicious messy american dishes. Perhaps the last place you'd expect to find one of these haunts is in affluent Kensington - Dirty Bones, on Church Street is an experimental style restaurant and...

Review of the Quantum of the Seas

When I found out I was going to get to stay on a massive cruise ship I was over the moon, even though I thought "isn't it going to be full of old people". After getting aboard this bad boy boat I realised my idea's of what a cruise ship was, is totally outdated. Did I have a great time? No!...

Review: Manhattan Grill

I spent many years refusing to eat steak, because it was just too chewy. So I played it safe with chicken, and lamb, until one day I was persuaded to try my then boyfriend's steak, and it was great, little did I know the ins and outs of a great steak, how well its cooked, how long its been...

REVIEW: Foxcroft and Ginger, Whitechapel

Foxcroft & Ginger Whitechapel

London is known for taking places known as 'cheap and cheerful' and turning them 'expensive and elitist' but the Whitechapel area on the edge of Shoreditch has escaped all these tags. The main high street of Mile End Road has escaped all these tags and managed to achieve a happy medium in 'affordable and amiable'. It's still easy to...

Trade, Shoreditch

When we went down to Trade on Commercial Street we had to poke around under scaffolding to find it and that's both a pity and sneakily useful, because it really is a hidden gem. While the building work is probably going on for a bit longer (on the floors above and quite quietly) the cafe itself is a finished masterpiece....

Le Cordon Bleu High Tea

As I sat down at the table immaculately set with a crisp white table cloth and classic white china I suddenly felt the desire to don evening gloves and discuss the shortcomings of my butler, Jeeves. Le Cordon Blue’s High Tea at the Mandeville Hotel is the showcase of the Diplôme de Patisserie graduates where these hard working chefs demonstrate...
