The Cosy Club, Cardiff review

The Cosy Club, Cardiff review

Tucked away around the side of the St David’s shopping centre in the middle of Cardiff is a set of double doors that lead up to the aptly named, The Cosy Club. Though it only opened in November 2012 it’s already garnered a reputation for being one of Cardiff’s best new wave restaurants and with(…)

Entrecôte Café De Paris in Cardiff Bay combines a great location with stunning views and a mouth watering menu. As the name would suggest, the food is stunningly French, although Parisian might

Bill’s Restaurant, Cardiff review

Bill’s Restaurant, Cardiff review

Bill’s restaurant on the corner of the Wyndham Arcade in Cardiff is easy to fall for. It’s one of Cardiff’s new wave of great restaurants that have appeared as if by magic as the city continues its ongoing transformation.

Greenwood and Brown, Cardiff

Greenwood and Brown, Cardiff

A fairly recent addition to the Cardiff restaurant mix, Greenwood and Brown does a lot to add a bit more diversity to food available in the capital city.

Purple Poppadom, Cardiff

Purple Poppadom, Cardiff

When you head out for food on Cowbridge Road East, there’s a very wide divergence between the best you can get and the worst. However, Purple Poppadom (Cardiff), is definitely at the top of the pile when it comes to nouvelle cuisine. The location and the relatively standard decor don’t in any way prepare you(…)

Waterloo Gardens Teahouse, Cardiff review

Waterloo Gardens Teahouse, Cardiff review

A lot of people might look at Waterloo Gardens Teahouse in Cardiff and be put off by the imagined pretension of such a concept, but the reality of the tearoom is that it’s a lot of fun. Filled with a loving dedication to the idea of tearoom heaven and everything that entails, Waterloo Gardens is(…)

Blue Moon, Tufnell Park

Blue Moon, Tufnell Park

Small, tucked away and little known, Blue Moon Tufnell Park has a lot to say for itself when it comes to taste. Unassuming in the extreme with polite and attentive service, it more than compensates for it’s slightly humble outlook with a tasty menu. When it comes to Thai restaurants, it doesn’t get much better(…)

Pinchitos Tapas, Old Street, London, restaurant review

It doesn’t matter what time of the day you get to Pinchitos Tapas restaurant in Old Street, London, it’ll be a culinary occasion. In fact, the only thing you need to worry about is getting a table. Even at lunch time it’s worth booking in advance. Especially on a sunny day on the city. It(…)

The 100 Club cafe

The 100 Club cafe

Towards the end of last year, we all discovered that the 100 Club would be closing soon if a sponsor or funding wasn’t found to help bail it out and inject new life into the live music venue, so we’ve been publishing a little about them every month since to do our bit. This month(…)
