A hidden gem on a cobbled street in Mayfair. Simple bistro-style Italian food, a wood-fired pizza oven and really affordable for the Mayfair area.

There's a shortage of good dog-friendly restaurants in London, however Pantechnicon absolutely nails it. It is certainly the best Sunday roast in town.

The Grenadier

The Grenadier

A local pub tucked away and open since 1818. It gets incredibly busy with people coming after work and is one of the most haunted pubs in London! They serve a fantastic beef Wellington too!

"The first Scotch egg was not Scotch at all! It was invented in London at Fortnum and Mason and was inspired by North Indian cuisine consisting of hard-boiled egg surrounded by a spicy shell of ground lamb."

Walking along Piccadilly, I love taking in the sites that central London has to offer.
