Two Floors Bar

Two Floors in Soho

One of the questions people often ask me is why I insist on focussing on City bars. After all, as these folks are quick to remind me, there are many great bars all over London which clearly I either haven’t been too, or simply haven’t heard of.

The Jugged Hare

The Jugged Hare, Barbican

I have to admit that I have a bar crush. No, it's not a drink, but an infatuation with a certain bar group. (Sad, I know, but this happens when you spend most of you spare time in eating and drinking establishments.)

The White Hart

The White Hart, Barnes

Rivers have been getting a bad press recently. The start of the year saw Britain virtually submerged by rain as flooding and power outages, and 'river plains' become 2014’s water cooler topic. (No weak pun intended.)

Upstairs At The Washington

The Washington, Primrose Hill

What is it with people that complain about the weather in this country? Winter is either too cold or not cold enough for snow, while summers are either too wet, or too hot.

The Fable Interior

The Fable, Holborn Viaduct

Where did the idea for serving food on chopping boards come from? I first came across it back in the mid-noughties at Soho’s Boheme Bar and Grill and I’m pretty sure I didn’t like it.

Simply Fish

Simply Fish, Camden

"Fish, fish, the family dish!" went the catchphrase for New Zealand’s 1970s television ad. Clearly in those pre-sustainability days, the NZ government felt the need to actively market fish as an alternative to the meat diet of your typical kiwi.

House 19 Bar

Home House, Portman Square

In London’s super league of private members club, Home House sits alongside the Soho House group and the Groucho Club as a bona fide A lister. Of the three, Home House is arguably the most exclusive with a reputation built on luxury, service, and privacy.
