Review: Searcys Champange Bar & champagne facts

Only 48% of people know that champagne can only come from France! This shocks and horrifies me! Searcys Champagne Bar invited us to an evening of champagne tasting for National Champagne Week, an event that Searcys launched earlier this month. Although the week has been and

Review: Tiptree Jam Factory, Tea Rooms and Museum

A fun day out in the Essex countryside, with good food, good tea and beautiful surroundings.  I have lived in Essex for most of my life but, as many others would probably say, I don’t always make the most of my surroundings. Tiptree is a small village about 15 minutes

Review: Picture Restaurant, Gt Portland St, London

Simple, clean restaurant, with a Mediterranean feel, serving up small plates of tantalising food and beautifully constructed drinks.  As a PR by day, I often get the great privilege of eating out with contacts in the industry, many of which are journalists (hence how Jack

Review: Joe’s Southern Kitchen [Covent Garden] – part one: the food

Like something out of Mumma’s kitchen, if Mumma was a freaking amazing American genius cook that is. The one to go to for genuine American fare and cocktails that are full of surprises. Formerly known as Navajo Joe’s, this Covent Garden delight has just re-opened as the homely

Review – Cabana Brasilian Barbecue [Covent Garden]

Perfectly cooked, tasty Brasilian barbecue food, topped off with rich desserts and strong, refreshing drinks. I am writing this on my train home from London whilst still on a mega food high.  I enjoy eating food from different places around the world but find that a lot of places

The Three Crowns [Old Street]

My experience of East London is quite limited, as I’ve only ever been there a handful of times for nights out, but suffice to say there’s very few other places like it in London. This is why, when Jack asked me to join him to the re-opening of The Three Crowns in Old Street,

Review – Ibérica La Terraza [Canary Wharf]

Appeals to: Tapas enthusiasts, lovers of skyscrapers and modern architecture, those who work and eat in the financial sector but who don’t want to pay through the nose  (I assume such people exist?), people who want a light meal to share with a group of friends…
