Given the Tier 2 rules mean that all socialising is pretty much outdoors for the foreseeable, London's restaurants and bars have been busy weatherproofing their terraces and outside spaces. All of which makes it hard to stand out from the crowd, but Southwark restaurant Bala Baya seems to have succeeded.
They've just opened their Discarded Umbrella Winter Garden. It's a tie in with Discarded Spirits Co and Bala Baya’s
It's now clear what Gordon Ramsay has spent Lockdown 2.0 doing. In addition to messing around on TikTok, he's been planning world domination. And he's starting with London, where he's opening five new 'street food' restaurants, three of those before the end of 2020.
Launching a new Gordon Ramsay brand will be Street Burger. That's opening at One New Change, presumably as part of Ramsay's sprawling
Tandoor Chop House (currently in Covent Garden) is about to get a new spin-off in Southwark called Tandoor Tacos. They are exactly as they sound - a mash-up of Mexican and Indian food, with the Chop House paratha breads converted into tacos.
Here's what's on the menu:
This is not a drill. Nando's are starting to reopen their restaurants.
Last night, Nando's revealed to a customer that they had quietly reopened seven restaurants in the UK and Ireland - four of them in London.
Having initially opened to "support the NHS and local charities" - they have so far delivered over 10,000 meals to those - the restaurant chain was using that to see how
We head up to the 14th floor of the Hoxton Southwark and fall hopelessly in love with this high rise seafood spot where the decor is pure Miami but the vibe is all London.
Southwark's hip new Hoxton hotel may be going big on its rooftop seafood spot, but it also has this buzzy ground floor all day dining restaurant with a plant-based focus.
The newest Hoxton hotel is bringing with it a seafood restaurant with an impressive view across London. And they've brought in the people behind top Brooklyn restaurant Maison Premiere to run it.
If you've ever tried chef Maria Elia's food, then you'll know that her upcoming three week residency at Great Guns Social in Southwark is worth pencilling in the diary.
The globetrotting chef and author (she's launched restaurants in California and done pop-ups in Rwanda) is planning a modern Greek menu for her return to London. Dishes will include:
This wonderful looking dining room on Southwark High Street is serving up Portuguese food and wine with a distinctly London vibe.
Having opened Riding House Cafe and now runnning Blixen Clive Watson is well able to put together a lovely all day space so hopes for this new Tower Bridge hotel restaurant/cafe are high.
It sure is festival season, isn’t it? (And we don’t just mean Boomtown, Wilderness et al.)
We’d only just gotten over WingFest, before starting to gear up for
Hoping to lure Londoners away from Nando's, this Algarvian restaurant will be cooking its chicken on a wood fired grill. Oh and there's also a secret bar worth checking out.
Yen Nguyen is brings her East-meets-West burger chain idea to life, featuring ingredients like shiso, edamame and kimchi on gluten-free buns from Bread Ahead.

Last week, we were a little concerned to see Covent Garden restaurant Native announcing that they were closing down due to planning permission being declined.
But the good news is that they already have a new home to go to. Today they've announced they'll be moving into bigger, better premises over at Flat Iron Square. The new space will have twice the capacity of their current spot and there'll also be room for a
