To be fair to the team behind Noble Rot, they tried to keep if not schtum then at least sotto voce the involvement of chef Stephen Harris. This was not billed anywhere official as The Sportsman in London. Harris was merely a consultant on the menu, and mann...

It seems like a lifetime ago now, but in 2011 I spent two mad, fun-filled weeks in Japan . I loved every minute of the time I spent in this most beautiful and endlessly hospitable of countries, which I'm sure will surprise nobody who's ever been there thems...

A few weeks ago I was invited to a wild mushroom dinner at Heirloom restaurant in Crouch End. I'd never been to Crouch End, and I'd only heard in passing of Heirloom, but a quick glance at the online menu convinced me it looked like it could be worth the jo...

Noma, Copenhagen
Noma is, as people will occasionally tell you, the Best Restaurant In the World, a title that somehow simultaneously means precisely nothing and also paradoxically carries with it a massive weight of expectation. Regardless of how much of a difference it ma...

Cheese and Biscuits Restaurant of the Year 2015 - The Newman Arms
The traditional way to start an end-of-year post, based on Cheese & Biscuits past (he says scanning the few previous years posts in an effort not to repeat himself), is to praise the dynamism and ingenuity of the London restaurant scene, pick out a few nota...
