Bottomless Brunch at The Oxbo Hilton Bankside: The treat for every weekend

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Restaurants


The brunch movement is continuing to take steam and has no intention of stopping. Each week there is a new establishment offering one as part of their menu choices. As an experienced ‘bruncher’ Sabi Phagura has spent hours whiling away weekends over bottomless Prosecco and knows exactly what to expect. But even she was amazed at the array of food Hilton London Bankside have laid on as part of their bottomless brunch menu at their stylish OXBO restaurant. 

This midweek set dinner menu fits the Bill

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Restaurants


I admit I was late in the day to discover Bill’s restaurants partly because I travel so much and well when I am not travelling, I try to eat at home. But when my friend Jo won a meal for two competition with them almost four years ago, I was gutted I hadn’t visited sooner. I love going there as a treat and was not going to turn down the opportunity to go there when asked to review the new Bill’s Dinner Set Menu which runs Sunday to Thursday from 5pm until close.

No. Fifty Cheyne – British Cuisine Centred Around an Open Grill

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Restaurants


The much-anticipated No. Fifty Cheyne is now open after a complete rebuild, masterminded by Sally Greene (Founder Director of the Old Vic and proprietor of Ronnie Scott’s). I recently went along to the ground-floor restaurant during their soft opening week and although was warned there may be a few finishing touches to be done, there was nothing I could fault. The only thing that needed completing was the first-floor cocktail bar and drawing room which has since opened.

But Patri – which translates as ‘railway food’ culture – does things rather differently and incredibly deliciously. I recently went along to try out their extensive menu in west London with my friend Natalie. We were pleasantly surprised.
