I went to Pollen Street Social for lunch as opposed to my previous visit for dinner. The food was again superb and I must recommend the ‘Spanish Egg’ as it was an interpretation of an English Breakfast. I had a hangover so it was just what I needed but a lot more refined and tasty than a…

45 Park Lane is part of  The Dorchester Collection and is just opposite the Dorchester Hotel. I had wanted to investigate for a while and went the other week. Lieutenant No4 was meant to accompany me but cancelled just as I was getting into my taxi( now you know why he’s known as the ‘I…

Last week, feeling frugal, I and Lieutenant No.4 (you know ‘The I Don’t Care Carer’), went to The Garrison in Bermondsey St. It’s part of the Riding House Cafe group, see my previous review. Bermondsey St. used to be a hang out in my younger days, when I went to go to the rougher side…
