The Square – Classic 2 Star Fine Dining From Phil Howard

The Square – Classic 2 Star Fine Dining From Phil Howard

The Square is the sister restaurant of The Ledbury, having had such a great time at the latter just over 12 hours before, Phil Howard’s own two Michelin star restaurant had a lot to live up to. Having developed a bit of a taste for rosé champagne recently we started with a glass of Delamotte Brut Rosé, a little pricey ... Read More »

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

Dishoom Revisited – The Best Breakfast In London, FACT!

This was the 5th stop on my epic London weekender and whilst all of the other places were new to me, some with Michelin stars and big name chefs behind them it was Dishoom who I’d already visited last year that I was perhaps most excited about. When I revisit places I usually want to sample different things from the ... Read More »

The Ledbury, London – 2 Michelin Star Notting Hill Dining

The Ledbury, London – 2 Michelin Star Notting Hill Dining

I’ve wanted to visit The Ledbury since seeing Brett Graham on Masterchef in 2010, it’s taken 3 years but last Friday it finally happened. During that time both his own and The Ledbury’s reputation have continued to grow. It has retained it’s two Michelin star status and shot up the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants rankings to 13th in the ... Read More »

Byron, Deansgate – ‘Proper Hamburgers’ Arrive In Manchester

Byron, Deansgate – ‘Proper Hamburgers’ Arrive In Manchester

Just like my previous post about Guerrilla Eats at The Beagle i’m defying my slight OCD tendencies to bring you this review from yesterday’s Byron opening before my backlog from last weekend. Only because it’s another current event, we’re definitely back to chronological order after this one or i’ll quite possibly be driven insane. If you don’t know about Byron ... Read More »

Guerrilla Eats At The Beagle Opening Night. Street Food, In A Pub!

Guerrilla Eats At The Beagle Opening Night. Street Food, In A Pub!

I’m pretty sure that I don’t actually have OCD and probably shouldn’t joke about it as I realise it’s a serious illness. I do have some slight ‘OCD like’ tendencies though such as needing to keep things organised, I’ve spent many hours arranging DVD and CD collections into the ‘right’ order and the same applies to the reviews on this ...

Yoobi, Soho – Londons First Temakeria

Yoobi, Soho – Londons First Temakeria

Despite having just eaten at Koya and having a reservation at The Ledbury (review coming soon) just hours away I couldn’t possibly not eat at Yoobi when I realised how close it was. Yoobi is London’s first ‘temakeria’, but what is a temakeria I hear you ask? It’s derived from the word temaki which is a type of sushi that ... Read More »

Guerrilla Eats, King Street, Manchester

Guerrilla Eats, King Street, Manchester

Despite raining for most of the previous week the sun was actually shining in Manchester on Saturday, the perfect weather for eating amazing food in the street. So I headed excitedly to the city centre where Guerrilla Eats had taken over King Street. Guerrilla Eats is a collective of street food traders who run one off events at various venues around the ...

Delicieux Bolton. Great Pies, Even Better Cakes!

Delicieux Bolton. Great Pies, Even Better Cakes!

It had been 12 days, 16 hours, 44 minutes and 34 seconds since I had last stepped foot in a restaurant and I was beginning to go a little stir crazy. I’m sure I don’t need to point out that this was certainly not by choice but thanks to a wisdom tooth extraction and then a post op infection. My ... Read More »

Aumbry, Prestwich – As Charming As Ever, If A Little Less Exciting

Aumbry, Prestwich – As Charming As Ever, If A Little Less Exciting

Before Simon Rogan showed up at The French there was really only one place to go for proper fine-dining in Manchester, Aumbry. Although not strictly ‘Manchester’, Prestwich is in Greater Manchester and only 3-4 miles from the city centre and connected by MetroLink. I first visited Aumbry in early 2011 and instantly fell in love with the place, it’s one ... Read More »
