Langley’s Old Tom Gin

This review is going to be a bit different, because this time I’m not reviewing a restaurant and I’m not reviewing a bar – instead I am reviewing Old Tom Gin experience!   I was invited to the launch party for Langley’s Old Tom Gin, and not really knowing what to expect from the night,…

It’s a game changer at The Jugged Hare

I have walked past The Jugged Hare (on Chiswell Street on the way to Barbican) many times on my way to / from yoga and had always gazed in thinking that looks like a pub with a good atmosphere. Well, big mistake not trying it out sooner! The Jugged Hare is a lively and welcoming…

Treves and Hyde – Cafe Bar and Restaurant in Aldgate

When I first walked past this restaurant right near Aldgate East, I did a double take as it looked pretty smart and welcoming with seating and fires outside. Downstairs is a coffee bar during the day serving fresh juices, breakfast pastries, sandwiches, cakes and savoury items. Up the spiral staircase is a welcoming restaurant and bar….

Lovely family run cafe in North London

Chamomile Café is located just a ten minute walk from Chalk Farm, Swiss Cottage and Belsize Park Stations and oozes comfort and charm. The cafe seats a fair few people – although these seats get quickly snapped up so be prepared to wait at weekends but it is worth it. Serving up freshly prepared food…

Fantastic burgers and chicken at Brgr & Co Soho

If you’re looking for a restaurant in Soho then you should give Brgr Co a visit. We loved the soft pink lighting, the neon signage, the funky toilets, and the seriously cute Date Bar. All of these extra little touches really make Brgr Co stand out from other high street burger bars, and I haven’t…

Long Arm Worship Street

I visited Long Arm Worship Street recently to sample their craft beers and check out the in-house brewing experience – https://eastlondongirl.com/2017/08/07/craft-beer-in-the-city/  my favourite offering being the six different 1/3 pints which reminded me of being in Belgium! I returned recently to try out the accompanying food and I was not disappointed! Keeping the menu simple but…

Mildreds Kings Cross

This week we had a veggie experience – we visited Mildreds which is located just under a ten minute walk from Kings Cross Station. There are also branches in Camden, Soho and Dalston given how popular it is! Mildreds serves up very tasty vegetarian and vegan food and you really don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything…

So much to choose from at Zaman International Cuisine

I have never been to a restaurant within a casino before and really didn’t know what to expect. Slot machines on one side, and a posh dining area on the other, it was quite a surreal experience. You soon forgot you were inside a casino, with the warm welcome from all the staff, and the…

Queen’s Head in Angel

Oh my Roast! The Old Queens Head is located just under a ten minute walk from Angel Station and offers club nights and pub quizzes on a regular basis as well as some very tasty food. The décor is country pub meets cool club with neon signs and animal heads mounted on the walls –…

Eat like a Royal in the heart of Crystal Palace

One of the first things you notice when you arrive here, along with the friendly welcome, and laid back atmosphere, is the fresh fish counter with the chefs hard at work behind it. I knew instantly I was in for a treat here! Looked after all evening by a super friendly waitresses, we were recommended…
