Discount Suit Company, Spitalfields 

Contrary to what the name suggests, this is not the place to get suited and booted on the cheap. Discount Suit Company is housed in the old storeroom of what was a Petticoat Lane suit shop. Spend an intimate, informal evening here with a couple of mates and a sharing-sized carafe filled with a fruity, […]

The Gun, Spitalfields

By Elliot Fulton The Shoreditch bar scene can be predictable. First came the stripped back look, then the bright neon lights to cater for the weekend influx who were looking to get their one Insta shot of being out somewhere cool.

Monsieur Le Duck, Spitalfields

Chicken Tonight Eating deep-fried chicken usually falls in the guilty pleasure category, although you needn’t feel quite so naughty at his particular establishment, since all its poultry are free-range birds from Fosse Meadow Farm. The food is nothing to be ashamed of either – we started with tangy fried pickles and cheesy spinach and artichoke […]

Thai Food to Die For, Commerical Street

Som Saa It’s not often that you can say a meal was utterly unforgettable (and I mean that it the best possible way), but as we departed this former fabric warehouse on Commercial Street, I knew that what I had just consumed would live on in my memory, well if not forever, for a very […]
