Pop-Up Pignic

London’s Pop-up ‘Pignic’   Coming to London in May is a little event called ‘The London Pignic’, which involves a picnic with cute micro-pigs. Yes, you read that correctly.

In the wake of some mysterious drama when head chef Ben Spalding left mere months after John Salt’s launch, the venue has bounced back and instilled Neil Rankin instead.

Dirty Bones

Dirty Bones   There’s no earthly reason that “gourmet burgers” should get all the love. Dirty Bones is a charming, low-key hotdog concern offering diners no-frills street food in a basement in Kensington.
