London Restaurant Reviews : Gillray’s Steakhouse Restaurant

I recently won a competition on Instagram which was organised by Bookatable and London Marriott Hotel County Hall for a meal for two at their Gillray’s Steak Restaurant. The hotel restaurant is located on a prominent site of London South Bank, and the restaurant has some tremendous views of the river and the Palace of Westminster….

London Restaurant Reviews : Ben’s Canteen

I have been a regular visitor to Ben’s Canteen whilst previously living in Wandsworth; we accidentally discovered this place during a walk around the neighbourhood when we first moved into the area! The endless queues outside the Clapham branch was enough of a giveaway as to the popularity of this place. Once I tried their…

London Restaurant Reviews : Silk & Grain

I was recently invited along with a couple of other food bloggers to sample The Feast menu at Silk & Grain by the lovely Nicola of East London Girl. To give you a bit of background, this is a steak restaurant which is owned by the Salussolia family and has been in operation since 1972….

London Restaurant Reviews : The Colony Grill Room

If someone asked me to recommend a fine dining restaurant that does classics really well, I would point them in the direction of The Colony Grill Room. It is located inside The Beaumont Hotel near Brown Hart Gardens, a surprisingly quiet enclave of Mayfair, worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of nearby Oxford Street….

London Restaurant Reviews – The Jones Family Kitchen

One of the best things about food blogging is meeting the hardworking and passionate people behind some of the amazing restaurants we dine in. Anna (one third of the team behind The Jones Family Project) and I had exchanged a dozen Instagram messages after our first visit to their Shoreditch branch. I was raving about their food…

London Restaurant Reviews : MeatUp Chelsea

Amidst all the grave news about restaurant closures, when one of your favourite neighbourhood restaurants opens a second branch in a prominent location such as Chelsea, there is definitely a cause for celebration. The first time we visited MeatUp was way back in 2016 when it first opened its doors in Wandsworth Town. It was…

London Food Review : The Coal Shed

Do yourself a favour, don’t read this post. Just go and book a table, as at the end of the three minutes (or however long a time it takes to get to the bottom of this one), I will be saying precisely that. TCS specialises in fire-roasted meats and seafood. The seafood connection is obvious,…

New Opening : Macellaio RC, Clapham

I am having an Italian gastronomic moment. A few weeks ago, it was the fabulous Bombetta, this week it is the turn of Italian steak experts Macellaio RC. The newly opened fourth establishment in Clapham (other branches include South Kensington, Southwark, Union Street) is a meat lovers’ idea of dolce vita. Macellaio is located at…

New Menu: Skylon Grill, London

I was really looking forward to my visit to the stylish riverside restaurant Skylon, as I had really fond memories from the first time. They have recently launched a new menu under Chef Kim Woodward, so it seemed an opportune moment to revisit. The inside is light, bright, modern and cavernous, with high ceilings and…
