Overpriced, inconvenient and antisocial. I am so over eating street food for dinner.

The latest addition to Covent Garden’s burgeoning cocktail scene involving sipping mystery tipples in pitch darkness.

Flumgummerie: hijinks, tomfoolery, hullaballoo, capering, antics, buffoonery, skylarking… you get the point aye?

By now you’ll have heard of Gingerline, the maverick supperclub that pops up at secret locations along the East London Overground.

I normally know Vauxhall as the backdrop to some of my mates’ more, uh, colourful night-out stories, but it turns out there’s more to it than drag queens and dark rooms. Just lately, for instance, a daytime meat fest has popped up in a converted stable, with unlimited prosecco, as many ribs as you can eat and a vague […]
I love a good supper club. They’re sociable, good value, and – as tickets must be bought in advance – a welcome antidote to the tiresome trend of no-reservations policies.

I made a joke in a blog post recently that invitations to south of the river are, for North Londoners at least, akin to a summons from Mordor. It’s not a very original joke, and, actually, it isn’t really that much of a joke, period. All Londoners are capable of being a bit twattish when […]

I know I’ve been banging on a lot about breakfast lately, but it really is the most important meal of the day. Besides, I’m a big fan of eating breakfast out in London. You get your big fancy meal at the beginning of the day, when you’ll burn it off best; it’s cheaper than dinner; and […]

What I like about ticketed restaurants is that everyone there has a genuine interest in the food and visionary behind it. In the case of JUMA Kitchen, that’s the charismatic Phillip Juma, the half-Iraqi chef determined to single-handedly swing public opinion on the war-torn country by way of its cuisine, which features exotic spices, mountains of lamb and […]

It’s a tough old world out there, for pop-ups. New ones, er, pop up in London all the time, but only the strongest survive. The ones that do get to keep coming back, and – if they’re very lucky – take root somewhere. Ceru is a pop-up mid-way through its metamorphosis; after a successful stint […]
