Welcome to the space in my blog where I talk about all the food and drinks related establishments within London, and beyond.

I’m lucky enough to be invited to review food establishments, collaborate with Food brands and work with PR agencies covering Food & Drinks related events. These will always be declared within the article i.e. as a ‘Sponsored post’. Equally I do ‘invest’ my own money into this passion so not all reviews = free food 😉

Integrity is very important to me so you will always find our reviews are a true reflection of our experience, rather than reviews being forced to be positive. I look forward to seeing how this space shapes up and most importantly, how you (my beloved audience) respond to it! 😃
