    Thursday May 12th, 2016

    Only headless chickens desperate to be on trend could rave over Barnyard, reckons William Morris

  • Honey & Co

    Tuesday August 5th, 2014

  • Poppies

    Tuesday February 11th, 2014

    ‘Where’s there a bloody good chip shop?’ is a question probably not asked often enough; if you’ve ever read anything about fish and chips, you will of course be aware that the unequivocally beige meal is ‘the nation’s favourite dish’, despite the fact that most chip shops are rubbish.

  • The Truscott Arms, Maida Vale

  • Beer and Food Matching Nights by Meantime

    Thursday November 15th, 2012

    Guzzling bottles of lager in Indian restaurants has hitherto been the most prominent example of ‘beer and food matching’ but the new, distinctive, diverse range of brews hitting the shelves has got people considering the idea more seriously. To further encourage us to consider beer in this way, beer and food matching nights are regularly held by the Meantime Brewing Company at its Old Brewery restaurant in Greenwich

  • Jim Beam launches Devil’s Cut in the UK

    Wednesday October 10th, 2012

    Up until recently, a US classic, bourbon whisky, had an image problem similar to American junk food before it got trendy.It’s presumably with the youth market in mind that Jim Beam has released a new bourbon called Devil’s Cut, a play on the notion of the ‘angel’s share’ where some of the bourbon is lost to evaporation while ageing in the barrel.

  • Mazi Notting Hill

    Friday June 22nd, 2012

    The consumption of lamb fillet and lobster may not be the greatest gesture of solidarity for our struggling comrades over in Greece but there’s a good chance that by trying Mazi, you’ll enjoy helping a Greek establishment prosper here on British soil.

Wads of cash sear clean through the pockets of our trousers and the pub is a triffic place to get rid of them at weekends while nurturing our transient London-based friendships.' Has William been on the Bitter?

    Tuesday February 21st, 2012

    What do carnivores do when they tire of restaurant mark-ups and other people taking photos of their sirloins? What does Joe Bloggs do when he wants a juicy, restaurant-quality steak but at home, where he can comfortably listen to dubious pop music, watch vacuous dross on the box or eat in his jim-jams? The answer is to give Donald Russell a call
