A Tour of the Meantime Beer Brewery, Greenwich

There’s very little pressure like getting into a new relationship and having to celebrate your new bloke’s birthday a few weeks in. You can plump for a generic meal out to celebrate or take a wild stab in the dark…

London

Dinner at The Diner, Islington

My favourite sorts of people to go out to eat with are those who also want to try everything on the menu, and think it’s a good idea to dump everything in the middle of the table so nobody gets…

Brunch at Jar Kitchen, Covent Garden

*NOTE: Jar Kitchen is now permanently closed* A stone’s throw away from unbearably busy Covent Garden piazza is Drury Lane. Saint-like calm in comparison to its neighbour, it’s home to the beautiful greenhouse style facade of the Royal Opera House,…

An Organic Sunday Roast at The Duke of Cambridge, Islington

I live up to my British heritage when I say unwaveringly that I LOVE a roast dinner. One of those spilling-over-the-plate, all-the-trimmings affairs, with a healthy mix of bad-for-you beige and wonderfully colourful veggies. The Duke of Cambridge is tucked…
