Barnyard

Barnyard   Amidst new fine dining establishments popping up all over London, Barnyard goes the other direction and offers visitors a super informal eating concept that’s just a few steps away from having a picnic in a barn. With occasionally hokey Americana, tables made of planks, corrugated iron walls and mismatched stools, Barnyard offers even the sincerest of flannel wearing… Read more →

Yauatcha

Yauatcha   Upscale dim sum at its best, Yauatcha is a meditation on balance, harmony and restraint. This Soho restaurant is pure elegance, with food as artfully composed as fine calligraphy. From the moment you step inside, you get the feeling that you are participating in something special, and that each mouthful has been carefully created. Naturally, a meal at… Read more →

The King of Ladies Man

The King of Ladies Man    The best bars are those that are hidden away, and The King of Ladies Man is about as tucked away as a bar can be.

Jackson + Rye

Jackson & Rye   Jackson and Rye is a charming and playful take on old school US diner aesthetic from days gone by. Barber-style checkered floors, leather booths and stools ringed round an informal bar make the interior cosy and familiar, but Jackson & Rye has it’s own brand of quirk that fans keep coming back for. TimeOut magazine draws… Read more →

Cereal Killer Cafe

Cereal Killer Cafe   Almost every human alive has made this very joke as a kid at the breakfast table, but the management at Cereal Killer Cafe actually went ahead and made a restaurant that only serves breakfast cereal. It’s true that the whole idea is a shameless exercise in nostalgia, but Cereal Killer is not a one trick, one… Read more →
