Meat Glorious Meat
We moved to Highgate in October and I've been loving getting the know the area.  We are pretty well versed on the pubs in Highgate Village, which we started getting to know as soon as we moved in and in the last 2 months I've enjoyed getting to know Muswell...

New Post, New Restaurant. Palatino, Old Street
In the immortal words of Adele. Hello. I know it's been a while since my last post and I apologise for my absence, life has just annoyingly got in the way. I say life, we all know that means work, and for the past 2 years I certainly have been consumed with...
