Based on Forest Gump, this lovely shrimp restaurant from the USA has opened its first restaurant in London! Amazing food and the restaurant is decked out just like you're on the film - it has its own gift shop too!

As well as an intimate, homely atmosphere, the pizzas are delicious and very very affordable, starting at only £5!

Just off Piccadilly Circus, this Jamie's Italian is set within a converted pub and has a terrace too that is lovely on a summer's evening. The fresh pastas and cocktails are very tasty!

Flat Iron

Flat Iron

Hands down the tastiest 'cheap' steak in London. There's only one steak on the menu and it's priced at an amazing £10...the sides are great too and also very good value for money.

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

Bó Drake

Bó Drake has a relaxed, Soho vibe serving a fantastic selection of small plates and sharing dishes of modern Asian cuisine. The impressive cocktails alone are a reason to go. Look out for their seasonally themed drinks available during Bó Drake Late every Friday and Saturday night too!

Archer Street

Archer Street

I love this cocktail bar! It has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place to take a date.

TKTS

TKTS

One of the best kept secrets in London apparently. The TKTS booth sits in the middle of Leicester Square and is the official ticket reseller for all of London's West End shows. Left over seats are passed to TKTS a few days before each show and sold at a phenomenal discount - sometimes more than half price!

Rosa's Thai Cafe

Freshly made dishes with lots of taste - great for sharing and reasonably priced wine too.

"In the 1840s, Dover Street resident and social experimenter Joseph Blake, the third Lord Wallscourt lived. He has a passionate belief that the secret to long life was to be naked for between the hours of 10am and 4pm. His long-suffering wife made him wear a cowbell, so that his servants could be warned of his approach!"

The National Gallery showcases the world's most regarded artists in the heart of London.

The idea came from wanting to put together pre-natal and post-natal workshops for parents in a relaxed home environment. Combined with post-natal parent coaching and "back on track" home consultations. The Baby Academy offers you help and advice in your own home, giving you the confidence and skills to build a happy home life with your new arrival. Website

The classes are taught to enhance the child's confidence in the water by utilising age appropriate practices to promote aquatic skills.
