Seasonal wood fire pizzas at The Orange, Pimlico

Autumn is slowly turning into winter. Days are shorter, it’s getting dark earlier. At this stage of the year all we want to do is go home after a long day’s work and cuddle up by the fire, or so we thought. The Orange Public House and Hotel on Pimlico Road is my new favourite thing…

Vietnamese style BBQ at CôBa, King’s Cross

CôBa is a contemporary and fashionable Australian-inspired restaurant, specialising in Vietnamese BBQ dishes. We didn’t know barbecue could feel so healthy up until now but the food at CôBa left us feeling full without it being stodgy! A slight downside is the location – it’s not in the most ideal place, being approximately a 20-minute…

A foodies guide to celebrating ‘World Vegan Day’

Today is World Vegan Day so we thought we’d share with you an excellent restaurant we tried recently in Bristol, which does tasty, ethically sourced vegan food. No.1 Harbourside, right by (you guessed it) the harbour in Bristol, is an ideal spot for an afternoon session of people watching. Celebrating local, ethically sourced foods this…

One of our favourite chefs brings Africa to Farringdon

African Afternoon Tea – what might that entail, I hear you ask. We’ve never really eaten much African food before and so this was a new experience we were more than happy to try! We were fairly sure it would be a breath of fresh air and a change from the usual English version that…

Swinfen Hall, one of the finest hotels in the English countryside

At the moment @ldn_eats is inadvertently turning into a UK luxury travel blog. I’ve been all around the houses recently, due to work taking me to some of the finest satellite towns spanning the width and breadth of the UK. This week I was in Lichfield (admittedly, a city), west of Birmingham, which didn’t get…

An afternoon at Sketch, Mayfair

Afternoon tea is genuinely one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon. What better (and more British) way to pass a few hours than eating mini cucumber sandwiches and dainty pastries whilst sipping on a cup of Rosie Lee’s finest? So, when my best friend from Melbourne came to visit and told me her trip to London wouldn’t be…

Fish is the Dish of the Day, at Bistro 8 Southampton

Bistro 8 is a beautiful restaurant, based right upon the Universal Marina in Southampton. As soon as we got out the taxi I could smell that cool, salty sea air as the breeze swept over us. The decor is a cool mix of modernity and rustic charm. The waiters are friendly, helpful, and put up…

Bunga Bunga, based on Battersea Bridge Road is a lively wining and dining experience that captures all we want and look for…

A foodies guide to a weekend away in Yorkshire

Londoners know this feeling: yeah, you’re all about that London life but it’s so nice getting out of the big smoke and into the countryside every now and again. Further than zone 6 you say?! No… That can’t be possible… Where are the prets? Does Ubereats deliver out here? We went to North Yokeshire for…

Girl Power at Roof East, Stratford 

I’ve never been to a Rooftop Cinema before, but living in London it’s always been on my bucket list. When I saw a viewing of Spice World being advertised I knew it was time to call all my friends together for a bit of Girl Power. Roof East is at the top of the Stratford…

Patisserie Lila, Borough Market

I arrived a bit early for Sunday Brunch with one of my best friends who’d popped down from Manchester for the weekend. I scouted the area around Borough Market and this place jumped out – it’s really cute, kitch and has that cafe culture which I love about London. Also, the cakes in the window…
