    Image by Matt Bramford When I first moved to London I thought that the most glamorous burger I’d get would be under Golden Arches, but now I’m a bit more savvy I’m completely addicted to burger spots in London. There are so many now, but Duke’s Brew and Que is one of my favourites. Duke’s Brew and Que is situated on a suburban street in Dalston in what used to be a typical East End pub. I’ve tried pretty much everything from the limited menu. Don’t let ‘limited’ put you off though. I love the pulled pork sliders; the beefburger (oozing…

  • Crate Brewery – Microbrewery & pizzeria, canal side

    Image by Matt Bramford Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that London hosted the Olympic Games a couple of years ago. Part of the objective of hosting the games in East London was to regenerate the neglected area and Crate Brewery is one of the many places that we’ve welcomed. A microbrewery producing ales on site, Crate is a stylish venue housed in an old print works, on the Lee Navigation offshoot of the Hertford Union Canal. White tiled walls and minimalist wooden benches make up the decor; a hip East End crowd pack it both during the week and at…
  • 2 Willow Road – Ernö Goldfinger’s modernist mansion

    Matt Bramford
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Image by Matt Bramford Hungarian Modernist architect ‪Ernő Goldfinger‬’s most famous London imprint is probably the Trellick Tower, the 1970s brutalist behemoth in Chelsea. Its radical offset service shaft has become an icon of 21st century London, but there’s a lesser known gem in Hampstead that architecture fans won’t want to miss. 2 Willow Road, overlooking the Heath, was built by Goldfinger for his family in 1939 and offers a unique insight into the daily life of London’s adopted Modernism master. The house is almost as it was when Goldfinger lived there, save…
  • Bistrotheque – Hipster warehouse restaurant

    22 Oct 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Image by Matt Bramford When Bistrotheque opened its doors ten years ago, it launched a new restaurant scene in the Hackney borough and surrounding areas. All over East London, new restaurants continue to pop up, but this is the original and one of the best. Tucked away on Wadeson St, it’s easy to miss – it manages to maintain an air of anonymity even after a decade. If you were a complete Hackney hipster you might call the interior ‘New York loft style’. The restaurant has recently been revamped – no longer is the upstairs separated into smaller rooms; it’s…
  • Barbican Art Gallery – Art, design & fashion

    22 Oct 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Image by Matt Bramford It is my firm belief that if the whole of London closed down except the Barbican Centre, us Londoners could still satisfy all our cultural desires in this one building. My favourite bit of it, though, is the Barbican Art Gallery. Located on the third floor of the Brutalist building, the gallery has a rolling programme of exhibitions which mostly focus on architecture, design and fashion. Previous exhibitions that I’ve enjoyed are retrospectives of the work of Viktor & Rolf, Le Corbusier, Bauhaus, Yohji Yamamoto, Pop Art and Jean Paul Gaultier to name a few.

  • All Praise Walking Home from Work Along the Regent’s Canal (but not in winter)

    She Loves London
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    It’s annoying that September’s over. Firstly because I can no longer legitimately get away with saying “it’s my birthday” in October, but also because it’s getting dark which means I’ll have to stop walking home along the Regent’s canal in the evening. Strictly speaking, I don’t have to stop. It is indeed my right as a human person to continue walking home even when it’s dark or cold or a bit rainy – but let’s face it, walking along an unlit stretch of canal just isn’t as good in the pitch black. And when I…
  • Why Clerkenwell EC1 is a Really Good Place to Work

    She Loves London
    21 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    I work in Farringdon. Or maybe it’s Clerkenwell. Farrenwell? Clerkendon? I’m not totally sure what the difference is between the two, but I really like it here in EC1. I’ve decided to write about it because I’m not really going on Facebook any more, so this is my new platform for making people wish they were me. Plus, it’s not like you can just rock up to Clerkenwell at the weekend and expect to discover the brilliance. It’s all over by then. Done. Finished. Kaput. And I’m a little bit worried you’re missing out. Clerkenwell is a Monday to…
  • Back to the Future at Secret Cinema (aka, the one where they took everyone’s phone away)

    She Loves London
    9 Sep 2014 | 1:35 pm
    I went to Secret Cinema the other week. You’ve probably heard of them from all the BBC News coverage this summer. They recreated the set from Back to the Future next to the Olympic Park in Hackney, charged £53 a ticket and then cancelled the first few shows, ruining lives and wasting thousands of 1950s fancy dress outfits in the process. Nationwide trauma ensued. All over the UK, upset BTTF fans wept tears of anguish onto their Facebook page, while everyone on Twitter made fun of them using pithy puns and clever film references. We should also congratulate those who took…
  • A List of Things I’ve Learnt About Living in London Since 1984

    She Loves London
    10 Aug 2014 | 10:38 am
    A few of us are turning 30 this year. Maybe you’ve seen us around: we’re the ones with the fear in our eyes, skinny jeans on our legs and double rum and cokes in each hand, yelling “BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?” on the Kingsland Road circa 3am. Over the last 29 years I’ve come to realise that not only is London a brilliant place to grow up, but it’s also a brilliant place to work and live when you’re not ready to grow up. And, I hope, it’ll be an even better place to drag myself kicking, screaming and consuming huge amounts of medicinal gin…

  • 4 of the Best Places to Drink Gin in London

    Beverley Reinemann
    23 Oct 2014 | 4:31 am
    London Food Blog post by Beverley Reinemann Eighteenth century London. The city was slum-ridden, the streets were crowded. Unlicensed gin production was legal, and the price of it in comparison to other spirits was extremely low. So low, in fact, that the poorest people in London could afford it, and turned to it in an attempt to escape the cold and hunger they faced on a daily basis. Such was the popularity of gin at this time that it was estimated that of the 15,000 drinking establishments in London, over half were gin shops But what were the effects of this period of time known as the…
  • London on Pinterest: the Best of London

    London Food Blog post by Michael Ball There may sometimes seem like there are too many social networks to keep up with nowadays, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Vine all keep people glued to their phones. One of our favourite, though, is Pinterest. The idea behind this is simple, people find pictures they like, and ‘pin’ them to virtual pin boards. The pictures can be just that, pictures, or they can link to interesting websites. There are fantastic boards all over Pinterest, from the best recipes to inspirational travel tips, interior decorating ideas to children’s holiday…
  • Haunted Places in London (And How to Visit Them)

    London Food Blog post by Beverley Reinemann Let’s be honest; at the beginning of autumn we all welcomed the change in season with open arms. We pulled out the jackets that had been gathering dust all summer, went out and bought a brand new scarf, and thoroughly enjoyed a nice Autumnal walk through the park. Then we realised that the arrival of autumn would mean the sun setting earlier, and mornings getting darker, and having to turn the heating on for the first time in about eight months. Still, it’s not all doom and gloom because, right at the end of October, we can embrace the one day…

  • The Angel Pub Crawl in London

    Ciaran Bennett
    9 Oct 2014 | 1:48 am
    London Food Blog post by Ciaran Bennett Before I get things underway, I think there may be a few things I need to clarify: First things first, the title for this article is slightly misleading. I apologise for that. However, the Angel-via-Highbury-Corner-and-parts-of-Holloway-Road Pub Crawl seemed a little ungainly and even given my distinctly clunky writing style, I felt a pared-back title was preferable. Secondly, this post is not claiming that the pubs and bars featured on this crawl are the best in Angel/Highbury Corner (although some of them are easily amongst the best), but rather…
