We went to Cinnamon Soho when it first opened April. It’s in Kingly Street just down from Liberty’s and it was an evening visit so I was prepared for a difficult/crowded journey through Soho. The taxi dropped us at the top of Kingly Street and of course it was at the other end but it is pedestrianised at…

I and Lieutenant No.1 went on a wheelchair adventure in Shoreditch and at the end we needed somewhere that I had  been told was ‘chair’ friendly – the Zetter Hotel. I had asked previously if I could see the disabled rooms so they were ready for me. I didn’t expect much as I have been…

I and Lieutenant No.4 (see the Gallery), went to Murano in Mayfair on Easter Saturday. It was a typical Bank Holiday and I was looking forward to Angela Hartnett’s cooking as a panacea to the depressing weather. Unfortunately she wasn’t there (apparently a rare occurrence), but the food was still truly delicious. I started with the…

I and Lieutenant No.4 (I don’t care carer), went to the OXO Tower Brasserie the other Sunday for lunch. We were invited  by his sister who was down on a Whiskey Convention – don’t ask!? It was sunny but not warm enough to sit on the terrace even though they are both Glaswegian and used…

Those who are travelling with small children or are carrying luggage or heavy shopping will all benefit..‘…

I’ve had a busy Easter and am pleased to report that there are two new venues worthy of 3 Blue Badge Style ‘Ticks’ – Murano restaurant in Mayfair and The Zetter Hotel & Town House in Clerkenwell. Also had an exciting time in Shoreditch with Lieutenant No.1 – not a disabled toilet to be found.…

Last Saturday I had to go solo to a comedy gig at The Soho Theatre , Dean St., (don’t worry I did meet Lieutenant No.1 in the bar). I went to see Brett Goldstein in his show ‘Brett Goldstein: Grew Up In A Strip Club’. I missed him last year at The Edinburgh Festival and he has since had great reviews…
