Love Thy Neighbour, Manchester

“Expect great vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian options, but there are also chicken wings on the menu. There’s balance”.

Electro Feels, Brunch at Gaucho

“There’s a DJ in the corner. He wears a tropical shirt and sunglasses, even though we’re inside and the walls are painted black”.

The Elgin, Notting Hill

“Exposed brickwork, dark hues on the walls, handsome mirrors and stain-glassed windows – as soon as you walk in it’s an immediately creative scene”.

Pitcher & Piano, Richmond

“Richmond is a step away from the centrality of Clapham and surrounding areas, separated by the expanse of Richmond Park and of course, the slow-moving vistas of the River Thames”.

“One of the greatest joys on this earth is eating. Trying something new. Trying something you’ve had a hundred times before. Tasting something so recognisable twisted into an unfamiliar flavour”. 

The Old Brewery, Greenwich

“I don’t know what it is about cauliflower puree with scallops but when I see it on the menu I always order it”.
