Restaurant Review – The Golden Arrow at Hotel Pullman St. Pancras

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food With more than 4000 shades of achromatic grey allegedly available, the décor of the King’s Cross branch of Pullmans’ Golden Arrow Restaurant and Bar manages to showcase at least 30 of those variations, set towards the back of the hotel lobby, peering out onto the rigmarole of the constantly busy Euston Road. “Sleek” is the first word that springs to mind. It’s the sort of place that once the sun has set and the...

Restaurant Review – Maze Grill Royal Hospital Road

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Just a short walk from the Chelsea Embankment and Sloane Square, situated a couple of doors along from his eponymous three Michelin-starred restaurant, Gordon Ramsay’s latest London opening is the third branch of Maze Grill, following the Mayfair flagship and the Fulham restaurant which opened in April. Unfortunately, during our lunchtime visit to the new opening we were surprised to have been the only couple dining within the 55-cover restaurant, with the exception of...

Restaurant Review – Oink – Swine Dining

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food As soon as the news spread of a new pop-up restaurant that serves only Pork, I knew that I was in love. Situated directly opposite a Subway ‘restaurant’ that substitutes the Bacon in it’s B.L.T for revolting strips of Turkey, it’s a brave move to open a restaurant of this type. Upon entering the weekend revamp of The Café From Crisis on Commercial Street, just metres from Spitalfields Market, the interior is everything that...

Restaurant Review – Tom’s Kitchen St. Katherine Docks

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food Situated just moments away from both Tower Bridge and the City, the St. Katherine Docks branch of Tom’s Kitchen, and its new al-fresco area, seems perfect for London dining when the temperature is exceeding 30 degrees. Looking over a marina filled with luxurious, gleaming white Yachts as the sun blazes down onto the water, almost blinding everybody in site, we find ourselves seated on the cusp of the restaurant and its terrace. During our...

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food With plenty of exciting restaurant openings constantly taking place across the Capital, here’s our pick of the best new restaurants arriving in London over the coming month. Balls & Company – Soho The brainchild of Australian-born chef Bonny Porter, Balls & Company will be the first Soho restaurant to offer a gourmet menu that’s focused on Meatballs.
