Kricket Restaurant in Pop Brixton

Kricket Restaurant in Pop Brixton

I’m a little in love with the food offerings from Pop Brixton. I’ve eaten at Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen and Koi Ramen whose broth is lighter and thinner than other ramen joints, but still manage to pack a lot of flavour. I used to visit them a lot […]

The Brasserie at The Tower Hotel

As spring leaps into summer, I’m on the hunt for restaurants that give the option to dine al fresco. One such restaurant is The Brasserie at The Tower Hotel. Unfortunately showery weather denied my chance to eat on their outside terrace on the afternoon that I went, but […]

Restaurant Review: Tuttons

I seem to be doing the refurbished restaurant rounds at the moment, this time it’s Tuttons in Covent Garden. Tuttons, which sits on the east side of Covent Garden, has been there for 30 odd years. I remember it back in the day (mainly because of […]

Restaurant Review: The Spread Eagle in Greenwich (CLOSED)

Restaurant Review: The Spread Eagle in Greenwich (CLOSED)

Bang in the heart of Greenwich is the very charming Spread Eagle restaurant. It was once a 17th century tavern and coaching inn, and recently had a new makeover. I, along with a friend, went to check it out on its re-opening night. I’d not […]
