201-209 Kensington Church Street, Kensington, London W8 7LX

Sat in a perfect location, right in the centre of W8 (2 minutes from the tube) and a perfect location for after dinner drinks if you want to go on!

With the feel of a neighbourhood restaurant, KP serves fish and seafood dishes at their best and you can definitely see that they know what they are doing and are masters at what they do! (There’s even their own lovely little fishmonger shop attached right next door to the restaurant).

The wonderful selection of fresh quality fish dishes are offered in various Modern British combinations and there’s a great specials board that changes daily, along with their regular stables such as delicious fresh fish and chips, KP fish pie, squid, fresh crab, prawns, mussels, lobster and of course their delicious tasty premium oyster tray.

The light, bright, airy restaurant atmosphere is tres cool and very collected, with modern eclectic & contemporary furnishings and very comfortable seating areas, there’s even a private dining room with its own separate entrance should you wish to be alone

Oh! and as if that wasn’t enough, they even won Best Wine List at Taste of London 2012 with their wines from across the globe.

Highly recommended by ificould

326 Coldharbour Lane, Brixton, London SW9 8QH

This brand new Brixton based addition is an independently owned Vietnamese street food success story already.

With is original big sister site in Peckham doing really well it was only a matter of time until the success story spread out further across the South London patch with the next stop being Brixton and thanks G for that!

The menu is beautifully simple but by no means limited, packed full of delicious dishes that will have you wanting to try everything on offer (which is actually possible). The PHO (noodle soup) options were fantastic, really filling and overflowing with ingredients and flavour, the rice plate was perfect in both size and flavour (we had the amazing pork steak but there was also a choice of Chicken and Tofu) and the Papaya salad was as fresh and crispy as a winters morning but with a zest that would easily get you through a challenge.

The décor is ideal, it’s minimalist and cool with blonde plywood tables and old school style chairs, simple pendant light fixtures, airy book cases and with a combination of larger sharing tables and small booth (for 2) there’s plenty of options to sit.

Service was attentive and speedy and the staff were really lovely, helpful and no request was too much, sweet!

24 Hillgate Street, Kensington, London W8 7SR

You will find this adorable little chocolate box pub located just behind Notting Hill Tube station, in the equally pretty local W8 streets.

Offering a wide selection of great beers, real ales, ciders and wines from what we are told is their extensive and full cellar, so you won’t struggle to find something you like or even fancy trying.

The pub also has a sectioned off dining area, specifically set to one side to avoid any busy bar action on those hot sticky summer nights.  With great comfort food from a menu that focuses on Fresh British choices (Gourmet burgers , homemade pies and fresh salads) using good quality produce, your visit should go well, whether its Evening dinner, Sunday Roast brunch or anytime brunch or lunch.

Fridays & Saturdays get quite busy, so get there early and save your pew, either inside or out at one of their cute tables facing the pretty W8 surrounding streets

41-43 Atlantic Road, Brixton, London SW9 8JL

We are thanking our lucky stars Kricket has finally returned to its original home of Brixton, phew! It’s been a while but its home now! Perfect!

Krickets new Brixton home is now located under the arches on Atlantic Road (it was originally situated in a converted sea container within Pop Brixton before heading up to Soho, where its second branch still remains) and apparently a third branch is due to open in the revamped BBC Television Centre in White City this summer, 2018, so those up that end of town will soon be able to taste all of amazing delights Kricket has to offer.

All the old favourite dishes have return also (TG!) such as their classic samphire pakoras etc. and a selection of some delicious brand new dishes such as spicy (but mild) pig head vindaloo with artichoke tarka. A top tip from Ificould would be order one of everything off the doable menu and that way you get to taste everything and trust us, you will want to do that when you see the menu)  

Delicious, affordable tapas style plates, that won’t break the bank and that are bursting with flavour and the good news is, the Brixton branch even takes bookings now (it didn’t before) so that’s another bonus as its very popular with the locals and rightly so, there’s even a separate arch where you can just sit and sample your way through their fabulous drinks and cocktails menu in the bar and lounge area.
