Circle Pizza Co Launch, Hoxton Square

We headed East to the ever trendy Hoxton Square and were lucky enough to be eating at Circle Pizza Co, a brand new pizza restaurant that has just opened.

Peruvian gem in Marylebone – Pachamama

Pachamama opened up towards the end of 2014 and once you find the inconspicuous restaurant door you make yourself downstairs and are welcomed by the bustle of the dimly lit bar. The Peruvian restaurant scene is growing rapidly in London with places such as Lima setting the standard.

As soon as ‘Letters Live‘ with Benedict Cumberbatch headlining popped up in my inbox, I knew this was the one for us both. Continue reading “An enchanting evening at Letters Live!”

Pho House, Highbury

After months of walking past the newly refurbished Pho House restaurant situated next to Highbury & Islington we finally found an excuse to pop in and sample the food. No doubt unknown to most of you who don’t visit Highbury & Islington and make the walk left as you come out of the station up Holloway Road but for locals we’re always on the look out for a new dining home.

Bury Court is situated in prime location next to the Gherkin and Heron Tower which as you can imagine makes it a very popular drinking hole with the local city workers. Continue reading “City bar aimed at the ladies”
