‘Bottomless bubbles’, eh? It’s a dangerous game, kind on the purse but perilous on the liver. We’ve definitely seen a rise in the trend, which reliably leaves a trail of sloshed Londoners staggering around town around about 3pm every Sunday, but…bottomless dinner? For £39.50? It sounded too good to be true. (Further reading: my comprehensive […]

…And that’s the one and only innuendo I’ll make in this post, I promise. We’re both better than that.

Until very recently, I thought London’s biggest pizza was made by King’s Pizza of Caledonian Road, which sells its wares – not so much pizzas as great wagonwheels of solid heart disease – at £10 a go. At 18″ across, they offer pretty good value – financially if not nutritionally – although, regrettably, no actual taste. […]

“Hurry up and get dressed,” said my flatmate, James 1. “We need to leave.” “I am dressed,” I said sulkily. And it was true, because if you can’t wear your ugliest hoodie and voluminous elephant-print trousers to an outdoor movie screening, then, well, when can you wear them? (Except of course inside, with all the […]

We peered down at our menus. Although usually a sign of a truly awful dinner and/or imminent food poisoning, we were rather pleased the owners of Dozo had decided to fill their menu with photographs of the dishes.

I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but daytime drinking has suddenly become A Thing. Even in my student days, when drinking was taken almost as seriously as studying, it was considered bad form to start preparing the bathtub punchbowl until at least 5pm.
The mouse stunk. It was lying on a sheet of newspaper, and I was going to stuff it. If all went well, it would be posed in a whimsical position with a miniature top hat, but right now it was just a piece of rotting meat. Imagine leaving a raw chicken breast out for a […]

It was much higher at the top of the platform than it had looked from the ground. The golden afternoon had seeped away and there was a bit of a wind picking up. In the distance, a phalanx of purple-grey clouds looked like they meant business. I’d just climbed up a very, very high ladder […]

This month I’m working with Jeep and its #RenegadesWanted campaign to uncover some cool new things to do in London. The campaign is all about unleashing your inner renegade, and to give everyone a little push Jeep is running a competition with bad-ass prizes like cage-diving and a Bear Grylls-style survival weekend. (Well, sort of. […]

Surely, London must be the world capital of things pretending to be other things. There’s a bar masquerading as a detective agency, a restaurant that thinks its a circus, and a karaoke, pizzeria and cocktail bar themed entirely around ex-Italian premier and celebrated womaniser Silvio Berlusconi. The latest addition is 1940s-themed underground cocktail bar Cahoots, which seems […]
