A Taste of London

Jack Peat reviews The Tasting Room, Liverpool Street  Sat overlooking an ice rink suspended above Liverpool Street station with a citrus-infused, hoppy craft beer in hand and a whiff of smoked meats in the air I realised; winter doesn’t have to be so depressing. We had been invited to a new pop-up venture borne of a marriage between artisan food shop Sourced Market, seasonal drink specialists Peppermint Bars and smoked meat authority Smokestack which have collaborated to form a pseudo Winter...

So you think you’re a foodie?

By Charlotte Hope, Lifestyle Editor @TLE_Lifestyle Remember the time before the word "foodie" was used, it was a  carefree egalitarian existence. You could make beans on toast and eat it, just so, you know, you were full. But those days a long gone. If it isn't artisan, it isn't going down my gullet, sorry beans back in the tin. Knowing the best cuts of meat, your terrine from your carpaccio and what wine to have with your meal are what...

Classics in the Courtyard is a delightful programme of classic films screened every Saturday evening to warm the coldest hands and melt the warmest hearts; from Elf to Love Actually, Frozen to Fargo, wintry Saturday nights were meant to be spent like this....

Red wine drinkers make more money than other vino fans

By Charlotte Hope, Lifestyle Editor, @TLE_Lifestyle I like wine, no screw (no pun intended) that I LOVE wine, of all sorts, colours and price. So I can’t say this survey applies to me, and I would have been too drunk to fill it in anyway. However, 2,000 wine drinkers did and there were some startling results. Red wine drinkers earn more money, are more confident and are more likely to watch Dr Who, than those who sip white wine. Experts examined...

Tredwell’s – Review

By Jonathan Hatchman @JonHatchman Situated within the heart of the Capital’s bustling theatre district, master chef Marcus Wareing’s latest venture is a far cry from his two Michelin Starred restaurant within Knightsbridge’s Belgravia Hotel. However, boasting an affordable menu, the restaurant does retain Wareing’s flair for modern British cuisine, fused with a delightful feast of comfort food that’s available within this casual dining atmosphere. Intently missing the lunch rush, our meal commenced with a delicious pumpkin soup (£5), served gracefully...

Crowne Plaza – The City: Review

There are few cities in the world that showcase the turn of the seasons quite like London, and as such, as a London dweller, you become quite attached to the classical seasonal traits. Summers spent sat on rooftop terraces sipping Prosecco and munching on Mediterranean-style salads, autumns in warm pop-up restaurants nursing a large glass of Pinot Noir and eating game,  winter spent wrapped up next to a log fire and the spring spent dining on as many bowls of...
