Calle Esglesia 0, 07820 Sant Antoni de Portmany
Santa Agnes is a really tiny little village in Ibiza. There's a few houses, a church and this wonderful cafeteria that's always incorporated into our Ibizan visits.
Known for being making the best tortilla on the island, make sure you drive up, sit outside and order some sangria and tortilla for your lunch. Light and lovely.
Bryant Street, London E15 4RU
I visit this venue weekly for singing rehearsals. We use the community centre large hall and it's a great place to rent for any group activities with lots of different rooms.
There's a car park and parking on the street is free in the evening. Plus it's a quick (5 mins), safe walk from Stratford tube.
32 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5AA
All these reviews made me feel I'd be missing out so Friday night was the perfect time to try this restaurant.
It's on a street full of tourist type restaurants and I must have walked past it many times as it looks so unassuming.
Once inside there's a lovely casual vibe and despite it being a busy Friday night we weren't rushed along at all. The staff were polite and friendly and it just had a really great, people out with their friends having a nice dinner kind of vibe.
We tried the beef for two which was fine, but I think I need to remember beef != steak as it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The menu was full of gorgeous sounding stuff that I can't wait to try though. I'd recommend the roast veal as a starter.
Will definitely return.
26 Kiosk 2 & Unit 26 opposite last exit of Sainsbury towards Matal, Kingsland Shopping Centre, Dalston, London E8 2LX
This is a tiny little beauty kiosk in Kingsland shopping centre which specialises in threading. In fact I'm not sure they do anything else.
It looks a little bit dodgy but is in fact brilliantly cheap. I've had eyebrows and upper lip threaded in Debenhams and it's cost £22.
Here it was much quicker, hurt less and for both only cost £6.50. Absolute bargain.
South Bank, South Bank, London SE1 8XT
BFI Southbank has much more of a young, vibey feel about it since it was refurbished a couple of years back. It's a bit confusing to get around and NFT 3 is a miniature screen but the choice of films is amazing. It's a great way to see old films the way they were meant to be.
One thing extra to check out though is the Mediatheque. It allows you to take up seat at your own booth and choose what you want to watch from a wide selection of stuff from public info films of London in the 60s to the first episode of Hollyoaks. It's ace.
St. John Street, Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4DE
Oh lovely Waitrose. The closest M&S is a good 7 minutes walk away so I'm quite happy to have this opening up nearby.
The main thing I want to note is that it isn't actually that popular. This has the brilliant effect of lots of near death date products being significantly reduced every single day? Fancy a bit of Foie Gras for £1? Pop in at lunch or at 5pm when all the reductions start happening. There's some yummy food bargains to be had!
97-99 Wardour Street, Soho, London W1F 0UD
After reading all these glowing reviews, I felt like I had to try out Byron when in need of a Soho based dinner last week. As it happens I ended up going twice in a week!
First time round I had a cheese burger, chips and an oreo milkshake (hello my diet!). The shake was amazing - just like an Ed's oreo shake and served in a metal pourer in a similar style. I think it was even bigger though. When the burger arrived I was a little disappointed at it's size, but it more than filled me up. It just looks a little small in comparison to other burger joints that have sprung up around the last couple of years. It was tasty, but not mindblowing.
Then I returned and tried the chicken burger. This is a whole new level. Marinated and freshly grilled this is probably the best chicken burger I've had in a very long time. It even felt quite healthy and was juicy and well cooked. We coupled it with the courgette fries which were a novelty but a bit pointless.
Pretty expensive but probably my burger joint of choice in town for now! Chicken beats beef though. Who would have ever thought that.
47-48 St John’s Square, Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4JJ
I went here for breakfast on my birthday because it's near my office. I'd noticed it a few times and always thought it looked pretty sweet and nice.
Whlie it was both of those things it didn't wow me in any way. It was bustling and took a little while to get seated. Not really because staff were too busy, they just didn't seem to be about or to be noticing anything.
The breakfast options include pastries, fruit and hot, cooked stuff. I had the fruit salad which was lovely and fresh and also had a hot dish which involved egg & toast (can't remember exactly what!). This was nice, but nothing very special.
Adequate, pleasant and other non descript 'meh' words. Nothing wrong with it, but it's doubtful I'd return.
63 - 65 Haymarket, London SW1Y 4RL
I love this cinema. It takes you back to old school cinema world in screen 1 which is huge, and as others have mentioned, can almost make you feel like you have your own private box.
It is however absolutely freezing in there. Take a big jumper!
Southbury Leisure Park, London EN1 1YQ
Big out of town cinema complex. Doesn't really feel like you're in London anymore.
The main problem is that the car park is often full and it's not very easy to drive around (or even to walk through as a pedestrian).
Queues inside the cinema are normally pretty big so don't go too close to film start time as you'll have to wait a while.
