My pal went there for lunch the other day. He went to the gents and found a pissed up Francis Boulle and his mates. He gathered from their conversation that they had been putting codeine tablets up their arseholes Laughing out loud

Can tell it feels very rushed and for the price it's not worth it.

Probably even worse now as the whole kitchen left who worked at dinner because they thought it was terrible

I didn't rate gavroche that much when I went.

Heard Chiltern was amazing right at the start (and I like Mendez) but given that it's turned into celeb hellhole and staff have changed wouldn't surprise me if it's turned to shit.

went to Blackfoot on Exmouth Market tonight, worth a shot and good for a pint of Paulaner

tried Bonnie Gull at first though the manager was needlessly rude so went over the street instead.

Love Candela, went with a big group for the missus' birthday a couple months back. In Ridiculously cheap for what you get, it's only a short walk from the flat so in there a lot these days.

Loads of places on Lower Clapton Road now, gotta give more a go.

Bird is not great, chicken was ok but the chips were tosh

I also had a takeway which meant it basically steamed in the gash box they gave me and was all soggy when I got home

Wont be rushing back
