  • If the apocalypse strikes when you are in Covent Garden (and if Donald Trump ever becomes President that could come sooner than we think), I would advise you to run for cover in Bedford and Strand. There is a great wine list to peruse, for a start, and the underground setting would protect you from missiles and irritating tourists asking for directions to Lie-ces-ter Square. The menu is simple,...
  • “In a mo!’ sounds like the response you make half-heartedly when your mum calls you in for dinner. Well it is if you are middle-class, well-mannered and grew up wanting to drink ginger beer and have a run in with a gypsy like the Famous Five. ‘Come into dinner, you relentless fantasist!’ ‘In a mo, mum!’ Inamo in Covent Garden is decidedly not like this, but if it had been around during my...
  • GBK has been going strong since 2001, when three wise men came over from New Zealand, on a sort of reverse pilgrimage, with patties and gherkins instead of frankincense and myrrh. They did good, those Kiwis, even if they did have a penchant for putting beetroot and pineapple in their burgers. I was really looking forward to my meal all day, especially as it was Monday and Mondays are the Bob...
  • If, like me, you are prone to flights of fancy and imagination then you will find much to enjoy at Mr Fogg’s Tavern. The eponymous Fogg is off travelling on his bet around the world but Fanny McGee keeps his tavern ticking over. Here you will be met with full Victorian gusto – corseted serving wenches carrying pewter tankards and stuffed pheasants hanging merrily from the rafters. The rain...
  • ‘When the marimba rhythm starts to play, dance with me, make me sway’ – or so the song goes. And if you are going to sway, at Sway, then you are going to want some food to keep you going. Here they have food and charming staff a plenty along with the music. You don’t even need to have your dancing groove on, you can just come in here of an evening, or of a lunchtime, and enjoy some snacks along...
  • I had not had a good catch up with Lotte for a while, but since the sad demise of Barry (may his sweet Welsh soul rest in peace) and the need for a convivial dining companion, I was now doing so with aplomb. The candlelight and discreet booths at the Port House suited us to a tee.  Drinks are quite the thing here, no surprise given the Irish blood coursing through. We started with gintonics as...

  • Love is in the air, which makes a nice change from the damp and the rain that usually pervades at this time of year. They say that the best way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and we have plenty of options here for you to encourage cupid’s arrow. The food of love abounds in Covent Garden. I’d forgive any number of flaws for oysters at J Sheekey, ceviche at Lima or ravioli at Spring....
  • Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive! Come and join in the fun on November 19 when Le Garrick will be celebrating the new season’s Beaujolais Nouveau. This cherry-red coloured wine is the result of a quick fermentation process that ends up with a tasty, clean wine that is now enjoyed the world over. Customers can enjoy a bottle of Beaujolais at Le Garrick for only £25! If you fancy a bite to eat they...
  • c-pacifico-tequila

  • rugby-1
    The Rugby World Cup 2015 kicks off on 18 September with England vs Fiji. Drop into the RWC 2015 Official Store in Covent Garden Market to get kitted out, then it’s off to Twickenham to support the Roses, or if you haven’t been successful in bagging yourself a ticket, perhaps a local bar showing the match. It’s the first time England have hosted a Rugby World Cup since 1991 and it promises to be...
  • jar-news
    A great new place for you to check out is Jar Kitchen on Drury Lane. We caught up with owners, Lucy Brown and Jenny Quintero (pictured above) and our first question was ‘What’s with all the jars?’. They are used as lights, condiment holders and flower vases, as well as when serving a few dishes. They told us it stemmed from their passion for sustainability, and guided them towards something a...
