Forgive me for stating the bleeding obvious, but food is food, case closed. One man's rubbish may be another man's treasure, (black pudding is a prime example). The phrase is all too easily forgotten when sampling foreign cuisine. If you serve it to me alive, I'll eat it. If you serve it to meraw, I'll eat it. If you serve me vegetarian bacon, I'll never send you a
Christmas card but I'll still eat it.
Whether I'm in a Michelin star restaurant or a back street café, the one thing you can rely on me for is an honest opinion

  • The Rajdoot Tandoori

    Monday August 11th, 2014

    An excellent Indian restaurant where friendly service and authentic dishes are paramount

  • The Everyman Theatre Bistro

    Wednesday August 6th, 2014

    A locally loved bistro in a legendary theatre. 

  • 60 Hope Street

    Thursday July 10th, 2014

    Trendy, colourful, great food and definitely a place to visit in Liverpool

  • The Monro

    Thursday July 3rd, 2014

    A top place in Liverpool for Sunday lunch.

  • The Bloody Oyster

    Tuesday June 24th, 2014

    Oysters? Bloody Marys? Double Decker Bus? Damn, that's cool.

  • The London Carriage Works

    Wednesday June 4th, 2014

    One of the very best in Liverpool

  • HOAX & Hopskotch

    Wednesday May 28th, 2014

    A cut above the rest hostel in Liverpool with its very own street kitchen.

  • Panoramic 34

    Friday May 16th, 2014

    A restaurant in a tower in Liverpool - that's enough to get me in the door.

  • Skinny V drinks

    Thursday May 8th, 2014

    A new range of drinks with zero calories, zero carbs, zero bad stuff and zero guilt. 

  • The Carnaby Burger Company

    Monday April 28th, 2014

    Good vibes and good burgers, what more could you want?

  • Kimchee

    Tuesday March 4th, 2014

    Weaving in and out of the suits that inhabit Chancery Lane is good exercise for anyone wanting to perfect their reflexes. Dodge the corporate lawyer, side-step the overpaid PA and somersault over the la-di-das who seemingly do nothing in the big glass-fronted professional officey buildings. Sooner or later you arrive at Kimchee.

  • Kanteen – K West Hotel & Spa

    Saturday February 8th, 2014

    I realise it doesn’t sound like a ground-breaking menu and the hardcore Come Dine With Me lovers will scoff and demand much more flamboyance, but that’s not the point of coming to Kanteen. If you want something bland from a brand and covet sitting in a huge fishbowl so everyone can see you eat, go to Westfield.

  • Celebrity Cruises of the Ben Fogle variety

    Wednesday February 5th, 2014

    The Fogle’s got a new role as “Destination Expert” with Celebrity Cruises, creating a series of shore excursion programmes that I would have enjoyed more than nutmegging Gordon Banks or waiting in the Pompeii gift shop for the bus back to the boat.

  • Chung Ying Central

    Tuesday January 28th, 2014

    Chung Yin broke my Chinese cherry and now there's a new one - Chung Yin Central.

  • Street Feast at Hawker House

    Thursday December 12th, 2013

    Street Feast has been all the rage in trendy Dalston for the past five weekends. With a final weekend of street food left, Marcus checks it out and find out whether it's worth a visit.

  • Night Tales at Abbot Street Car Park

    Thursday December 12th, 2013

    Dalston street food venture Night Tales ends on Saturday night, after a successful run. Marcus goes along to see what the fuss is about, and to see whether it's worth the trip.

  • Foxlow

    Tuesday December 3rd, 2013

    The timing of Foxlow’s opening couldn’t have been better. My usual go-to restaurant in Clerkenwell has been rather inconsistent of late, culminating in a shockingly poor performance that pushed me into the transfer market quicker than Mark Hughes with a blank cheque book. 

  • Dinner with Olly Smith at Hotel du Vin

    Wednesday November 27th, 2013

    Marcus attends a dinner with wine expert Olly Smith at the Hotel du Vin, and finds his warm eccentricity just as enjoyable as the wine.

  • Jekyll & Hyde, Birmingham

    Thursday October 3rd, 2013

    The most creative bar we've seen so far in Birmingham...cocktails in mini watering cans, a gin parlour and good food.

  • Rotary Bar & Diner

    Wednesday September 4th, 2013

    The quest for the perect burger is a never-ending saga. There's a really good effort being served up at trendy Rotary Bar & Diner.
