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 […]
As we wound through the eerily quiet, bright white corridors of Bermondsey’s Biscuit Factory, we wondered if the afternoon’s adventure had already begun. We were on our way to Lockd, a newish escape game in South London that promised to challenge our wits, Crystal Maze-style, and take our minds off the tragic reality of imminent work after a […]

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 […]
The Young British Foodie awards recognise new and pioneering names in the UK’s food industry, championing chefs, food writers and suppliers. They’ve only been going a couple of years, but for every set of winners the Tate Modern hosts a guest menu to showcase Britain’s best recipes and ingredients.

Kyle, who runs an online one-stop-shop for lovers of the leaf, has just started a new tasting concept where participants sample a range of teas alongside paired cheeses. Obviously, cheese […]
I’m going to come right out and say it: Breakfast Club Bingo is by a million miles the most fun you can have in London for a fiver. Or £5.75, I suppose, once you’ve added the DesignMyNight booking fee.
“I’m going to a roller disco tonight!” I announced excitedly to the office on Friday morning. Almost everyone stopped what they were doing to congratulate me on my excellent choice of Friday night activity and to show me Facebook photos of their own trips to London’s only permanent skating rink in Vauxhall, everyone in varying states of […]
The Old Operating Theatre Museum is a restored garret hidden away just up Borough High Street. You can only get at it by climbing three flights of mental-steep spiral stairs, which means that – ironically – the oldest operating theatre in Europe can only be reached by the able-bodied, but once up there there’s a […]
