Alyn Williams at The Westbury

Orkney Scallops - I'd come back for these again and again!

You should go now before Williams reputation grows any further, the tasting menu won’t £60 for ever. Alyn Williams worked under Marcus Wareing for eight years, four of which were spent as head chef of the two-star Berkeley, so at an irresistible £60 for seven courses, I didn’t take much persuading. We arrived just after 7pm on a Friday night ...

Santa Maria del Sur

santa maria

The great reviews for this place make me think we were just unlucky on our visit but at £27 per head for the main course, I don’t think we would risk a return. We were out for dinner one night when we happened upon Santa Maria del Sur. We were mesmerised by what was in the window. Any meat lover ...

Mele e Pere

mele e pere

This is a reliable, mid-priced restaurant and if you are in the area, I’d recommend giving it a try. We were looking for a restaurant in town for a quick, midweek bite. Something different, something fresh, something new. After much debate we decided to give Mele e Pere a try and it fitted the bill perfectly. It’s the sort of place you ...

If you’re a B&L first timer, you should know you’ll have to queue. That’s a given. They only accept bookings for tables ...

Kervan Sofrasi – The best kebab in town?

Kervan_special

The kebab has been maligned and misunderstood for far too long. All too often people hear the word and immediately think of the greasy, grey slabs of doner meat at dodgy take-aways up and down the country. To those people, I say this. Do we judge the burger by the standards of what’s on offer in our local late-night take-away? ...

Dinner by Heston by Heston Blumenthal

Meat Fruit @ Dinner

The food at Dinner is truly excellent and the fact that we managed to keep the bill below ₤190 made it all the sweeter. It’s not often that I feel out of place in a restaurant, but our visit to Dinner was one such occasion. It’s situated in the luxurious Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge and we seemed to be the ...

Chez Bruce – Michelin value

Crab & scallop ravioli

Out into the wilderness once more! (well… I am a north Londoner.) This time we headed to Chez Bruce at Wandsworth Common and it was well worth the trek. The locals have been enjoying great food here ever since Bruce Poole’s arrival in 1995 and we’ve read a lot about it being the best restaurant in south London. It attracts ...
