A Zika-free Babymoon

In December we found out that we’re having a baby, due in August, and we always knew we’d want to squeeze in at least one trip away before the newborn’s arrival.

And if there aren’t enough reasons already to avoid homecooking, another one arrived earlier this month. The people behind the wonderful Meza and unique Little Bar have joined forces to create The Little… Continue reading The Little Taperia, Tooting

Jar Kitchen could never jar with me!

A few weeks ago I read a review of the new restaurant Jar Kitchen on Drury Lane which raved about its small menu and lovely staff. I mentioned it to some friends as we had a birthday to celebrate and we managed to secure a table. The day before we went Jar Kitchen was reviewed… Continue reading Jar Kitchen could never jar with me!

Great Scott’s!

Scott’s on Mount Street in Mayfair is a restaurant for a special occasion. It’s not cheap but worth every penny for the exquisite service, beautiful food and calm atmosphere. We’ve had a tough month due to personal reasons and needed a family night out where we could have a few giggles and enjoy some stunning… Continue reading Great Scott’s!
