• Vinery London is a pop up honesty wine bar where you pay what you think it's worth

    vinery honesty wine bar london

    Would you describe yourself as an honest person? One way to really put that to the test is with the return of Vinery London next month. This irregular pop-up boasts that it's the only honesty wine bar in London where they trust you to pay what you think you should.

    The idea is that you buy a ticket (£7.50) which gives you entry plus a wine glass which you can then top as much as you like throughout the evening. When you head off into the night,

    BAO Fitz is kicking off the Autumn with a series of late-night bar takeovers, every one of which sounds worth attending. They've invited three really interesting bars from across the globe to London. Each will be in town for one night when they'll serve up a special drink and BAO will be pairing that with dishes including - wait for it - a one-off katsu sando creation. Each drink will then be on offer for the following week.

    Those drinks will include Celtic Soul, essentially a no-alcohol

  • Farringdon's House of Ice Cream pop-up is serving ice cream with fried chicken and chips


    At this time of the year, ice-cream pop-ups are ten a penny in London, but we have to say The House of Ice Cream that opens today in Farringdon has got our attention. The two week pop-up by Fuller's Kitchen, next to The Conductor pub, has been timed to launch ahead of National Ice-cream Day and will be serving up ice cream with a side of chips, chicken and hot sauce.

    Choose from two mains - ice cream and fries or with fried chicken, desserts consist of

    Treats Club pop up at Olt Street Roundabout with soft-serve doughnut sundaes

    Yes, we really would like a doughnut with soft-serve ice cream on top. While we'd frankly have one of these for breakfast, we'll have to wait until August when Treats Club launches as the latest pop-up to hit Old Street. 

    They've been appearing on Chatsworth Road Market, serving up doughnuts featuring their home-made jams, sauces, marshmallow fluff and honeycomb. Their doughnut sundaes are

    Nando's brings brunch to Shoreditch with Nando's Yard

    What's the most popular restaurant in London? Or indeed the UK? We'd be hard pressed not to give that plaudit to Nando's which has a legion of fans (and yes, we've been known to pop in from time to time too). Those fans will be very pleased to hear about the Nando's summer pop-up coming to Shoreditch in August. 

    And the biggest reason for the excitement will be the appearance of the Nando's brunch.

Their favourites will be on the menu as well as new dishes inspired by recent trips to China. We were rather impressed
