It may be one of London's oldest restaurants, but there's a new influence in the kitchen at the Guinea Grill.
Chef Nathan Richardson and the Guinea's GM Oisin Rogers go way back - they worked together first at the Ship in Wandsworth and then at Rogers' last place, The Canonbury Tavern in Islington.

A new restaurant and bar is coming to Shepherd Market that pays tribute to a very old London institution. Hatchetts was originally a hotel and coffee house in Piccadilly with a reputation going all the way back to Dickens.

We're all about a bargain set lunch here at Hot Dinners, which makes the news that hot new Hackney bistro Ellery is starting to serve from next week, pretty high on our to-do list.
