    Sunday July 5th, 2015

    The Soft Shell Crab Burger was exactly as it sounds: two soft shell crabs served - one piggy-backing the other - in a bun. They were cooked in a batter (which was slightly on the salty side - although  it worked with the moist bun, cress and rocket) and served whole - shell an’ all. A refreshing variation on the stalwart burger,

  • Crockers Folly

    Monday November 3rd, 2014

    Crocker’s Folly is brought to us from the guys behind the much-loved Lebanese chain, Maroush. The Grade II listed building it inhabits was once home to a hotel and Victorian gin palace. Last week, after ten years of abandonment, followed by a period of intricate restoration, it opened to the public once again.

  • Fever pitch at the The Broadway Bar

    Wednesday June 11th, 2014

    It’s the world cup. In Brazil. Which means some of the games are on a little bit late. Well, there’s somewhere in Fulham that promises to play every single game (with the sound on)

  • The Shed, Wales

    Thursday March 27th, 2014

    From the outside it’s little more than a rustic wooden conservatory. But The Shed is reputedly home to some of the best seafood in Wales. Keith went along to find out what all the fuss was about…

  • Bianco43, Trafalgar Sq

    Thursday March 13th, 2014

    I’ve got a slice of pizza in my hand and I’m looking at a picture of a scruffy bloke with a dark goatee. It clicks. It’s Caravaggio. I recognise him not because I’m a man of art, but because I’m old enough to remember his face on a lira note.

  • The House of Holi

    Wednesday March 12th, 2014

    A puff of blue explodes in my face. Then a puff of yellow. Holy rainbow coloured smoke! I’m surrounded by a mob, and I can’t see much although I’m still laughing.
