Ask, London

Ask is one of those places where you meet friends after work on a Thursday evening to catch up with good food and a glass of Prosecco. To be honest, it’s never really been on our agenda to have a family meal here. When I think of Ask, I automatically picture twinkling candles and rows… Read More Ask, London

Beefeater, Croydon

The last time I went to a Beefeater was around eight years ago when our neighbour used to treat us to a meal once every few months to thank us for looking after her. It was always pleasant, but mainly because we were eating with her, listening to her tales of times gone by and… Read More Beefeater, Croydon

Byron, London

The kids and I love a burger, it drives Beard MAD! We could go to a famous restaurant for a particular dish, and we would still choose a burger. Weird then that we had never been to Byron before. I’ve no idea why seeing as we are such big fans. For a few years, our friends… Read More Byron, London

Caffe Concerto, London

For Beards birthday, I bought him tickets to The Rolling Stones Exhibitionism display at The Saatchi Gallery, the problem was I didn’t look at the date I booked, and we ended up being there one month too early! Stranded in London with no plans, Beard suddenly decided that he was starving and we simply must… Read More Caffe Concerto, London

Chimichanga’s, London

  Tex-Mex is a fusion of stereotypical Texan dishes, which is categorised by the heavy use of grated cheese, minced beef and pork with traditional Mexican cuisine, which includes ingredients like corn, beans, avocados, sweet potato and chilli pepper. “Tex-Mex” created the crunchy taco we are all familiar with; traditional Mexican tacos are usually soft.… Read More Chimichanga’s, London

Frankie & Benny’s, Orpington

Possibly the shortest review I’ve ever written, but there isn’t much to say. I don’t want to waste any more of my time, or yours, so I’ll just list the pros and cons. CON’S Staff – Possibly the rudest I’ve encountered. Service – More interested in chatting to their colleagues or engrossed in their phones… Read More Frankie & Benny’s, Orpington

George & The Dragon, Downe

Known for having the best pies in the area, we ventured here for a lazy late lunch on a sunny Sunday (try saying that fast five times over) after going to The Christmas Tree Farm, which is just around the corner. The George and The Dragon is a local favourite but equally welcomes us folk… Read More George & The Dragon, Downe

Giraffe, London

The first time we heard of Giraffe was in Blackheath before we went to Zippo’s Circus. We hadn’t planned to dine there, but we stumbled across it because everywhere was packed, and you had to book in advance. However, Giraffe was operating a queuing system, and when a table became available, you were seated. Perfect. The… Read More Giraffe, London

Hello Burger, Hayes

The owner of Hello Burger, Tony Adams, started his career as a bar manager, later becoming a cocktail world champion. He opened the first Hello Burger in 2015 in Sidcup and later opened his second restaurant in Hayes, Bromley. The site of Hello Burger was formally known as Dillingers, but when that went under, Tony… Read More Hello Burger, Hayes

Hungry Horse, Whitstable

“Hungry Horse | Big Value Pub Family Favourites.” Hungry Horse is for hungry families with a large appetite and, according to our waitress, “a small budget”. We don’t have one locally to us, but we went to review one close to Herne Bay while visiting my Mum, and what an experience that was. The garden… Read More Hungry Horse, Whitstable

Inamo, London

  Inamo is a restaurant serving Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai cuisine in Soho and Covent Garden. But Inamo isn’t like any restaurant you’ve been to before. Not only because the food is divine, but because of the technology they’re pioneering. At Inamo, the style is of that traditional style you expect from an Asian… Read More Inamo, London

Paternoster Chop House, London

So if you’ve checked out our post on The Roof Gardens & Babylon, Kensington, you’ll know that when we went there, it was our anniversary. Our wonderful friend Miller had recommended the truly glorious place that is, The Roof Gardens, topping it with the incredible restaurant, Babylon. It’s a tough one to follow, but with… Read More Paternoster Chop House, London

Plum Valley, London

Back when Beard and I were dating, once a month, we used to venture into Chinatown, London and try a different restaurant each time. Anyone who has been to Chinatown before will know the restaurants vary massively, from all you can eat buffets to ducks hanging up in the window, and then your uber posh restaurants.… Read More Plum Valley, London

Q-Bar & Kitchen, Beckenham

Q-Bar & Kitchen has been open for a while now. We’ve heard nothing but fabulous reviews from people who have been there. From the outside, it looks super trendy, and the cocktail menu appears mighty fine too. It’s my birthday soon, so what better reason than to drop in and check this place out as… Read More Q-Bar & Kitchen, Beckenham

Rainforest Cafe, London

Every year we go to the Rainforest Cafe as a Christmas or birthday treat for Josh. We have done ever since he was officially diagnosed with Autism. We always found that when in restaurants, he would find it extremely distressing, and it was a constant battle to get him to sit still; however, here, at… Read More Rainforest Cafe, London

The Chequers Inn, Loose

We first heard of The Chequers Inn in Loose when flicking through Kent Life one day, so when it came to Beards birthday (who is Beardless here), we thought it a good idea to go for a stompy walk followed by a spot of lunch somewhere a bit different. The Chequers Inn offers all of… Read More The Chequers Inn, Loose

The Fireball, Bromley

The Fireball pizza restaurant is hidden in the back streets of Bromley Common in Chatterton Road. I’d never heard of it until a friend said about meeting there for an impromptu Sunday late lunch. The restaurant, from the outside, looks like a small establishment, but once you’re through the doors (and greeted warmly by the… Read More The Fireball, Bromley

The Ivy Kensington Brasserie, London

What better way to celebrate our parents three birthdays and a wedding anniversary than The Ivy, in Kensington, where we were treated like royalty. As a table of 12, we were struggling to find somewhere in London to accommodate us while not classing us as requiring a private function room…?! Yes, really, and for a… Read More The Ivy Kensington Brasserie, London

The Kings Head, Wincheap

I’ve driven past this little gem a million times when visiting my Mum in the school holidays. Last week on a trip to Canterbury, we decided today was the day to pop in and say hello. The Kings Head is a 15th Century Inn located in Wincheap, literally on the borders of Canterbury and offers… Read More The Kings Head, Wincheap

The Roof Gardens & Babylon, London

Eight months after having Austyn came our 8th wedding anniversary. We’ve had our ups and downs, and recently there have been far more downs, so to celebrate we thought we would have a weekend in London so we can eat a meal while it’s hot. To smell of something other than poop and to talk… Read More The Roof Gardens & Babylon, London

The White Bear, Fickleshore

The White Bear is in a tiny historic hamlet. It is set almost in the middle of nowhere, just outside Warlingham in a place called Fickleshole. It’s like a secret little haven you stumble across when trying to avoid the M25 crash that has 3-day tail-backs. You’re meandering through country lanes, wondering where the buggery… Read More The White Bear, Fickleshore

Wahaca, London

Have you heard of Thomasina Myers? No, well, Tommi won Masterchef back in 2005 and around 2011, when her daughter Tatyana was born, we shared something in common, my clothing company, Dribble Bubbs. Years later, my family share that same love she had for the clothing, for her restaurants, Wahaca. Wahaca is Mexican Street Food… Read More Wahaca, London
