Archduke @ Southbank

Situated right in between Waterloo station and the hustle of the Southbank is Archduke cocktail, steak and Jazz restaurant. From the outside it seems like any other steakhouse but inside it feels a lot more upmarket and plusher than the average burger joint. We went to the Archduke on a weekend afternoon and got a … Continue reading Archduke @ Southbank

Rum kitchen with the cake app

The cake app is like the Uber for restaurants, book a table, turn up, order, eat and pay using your mobile phone...simple! (sorry no cake involved, unless you order it for desert) When I was offered the chance to review the cake app I couldn't really say no, I seem to have become accustomed to … Continue reading Rum kitchen with the cake app

Exhibit – Balham

My darling daughter recently turned 15 and with her birthday on a weekday we didn't really plan any sort of celebration. She had already arranged to go out with her friends at the weekend and we were going to have a family meal or takeaway at home on the day. Birthdays have always been a … Continue reading Exhibit – Balham

The menu includes an aperitif of a cocktail and olives, … Continue reading Le Grand Bistro – Paris

Situated on 20 Fenchurch street, just a short walk from London bridge, you will find a commercial skyscraper that is commonly known as the walkie-talkie due to its shape. Hidden away 155 metres up inside this building is an oasis overlooking the city that believe it or not is open and free to the public! The sky … Continue reading Breakfast with a view

Partying at Pizza Express

I have been to a pizza making party for kids and I have been to a pizza making party for adults and I have to say, the adults party is much more fun! I was invited to take part in a pizza making party at the Gloucester road branch of pizza express where there seemed … Continue reading Partying at Pizza Express

Sushi at the Southbank

I do like sushi but it is usually something little I pick up at the supermarket for a snack. I have never actually eaten out at a sushi restaurant before and am new to the Feng sushi franchise. We were exploring the southbank and saw that the Feng sushi restaurant was on the tastecard list … Continue reading Sushi at the Southbank

Breakfast at Café rouge

I had a café rouge voucher and decided that I would use it to try out their breakfast and brunch menu. I don't eat breakfast out very often (as in never) and thought it would be a nice treat as Café rouge happens to be at the bottom of my road. Décor / atmosphere The … Continue reading Breakfast at Café rouge
