My favourite restaurants

High End

J Sheekey  – the best and classiest fish restaurant in London

Marcus Waring – still at the forefront of delivery Michelin starred food that tastes brilliant and doesn’t just rely on technology

Chez Bruce – The best restaurant not in central London, amazing simple and creative menus at a great price

River Cafe – Brilliant ingredients, simply cooked at amazing prices, but worth every penny


Polpo – Italian tapas in a relaxed environment

Pix – Spanish tapas that just keep coming

10 cases – Great wine and French based menu in Covent Garden

Zucca – Bermondsey secret – fantastic Italian just south of the river

Great queen street – a restaurant, not a pub, but like a pub with great food (no website)

Paramount – the restaurant with the best view in London at the top of Centrepoint

Hunan – a Chinese restaurant with a difference. The chef decides what you eat, cooks it and brings it until you say stop. The quality is absolutely fantastic

Memories of China – Ken Lo who set this up was a family friend, he may have gone but this remains a classic Chinese restaurant in a class of its own

Northbank  – Where else can you sit outside in the City overlooking the river.

Royal China – probably the best dim sum restaurant in London, not as fun nor as authentic as the CCK but the quality is amazing

Gail’s Kitchen – great small plates of food. Mackerel rillettes and spinach rotolo were my favourites and the puddings sounded great, especially the ice cream sandwich, but was too much for lunch, so we just shared three freshly baked, hot cookies.


Delauney Café – a high end bistro and café in a part of town where there is nothing else

Prufrock – the best cup of coffee in London

Wild and Wood – if you want to pretend you are on the slopes of Zermatt



Franklins – brilliant British cooking in Dulwich

La Querce – Sardinian Italian family restaurant, they make their own pasta. The ravioli with sage butter is fab  

Lombok – brilliant and possibly one of the best Thai and South East Asian restaurants in London (no website)

Babur – high end Indian in Brockley

Hisar – great value Turkish barbecue restaurant

Boqueria – fabulous food and great fun, high class Spanish tapas bar.
