What area? Ducie St Warehouse good food and nice atmosphere for a rainy Saturday afternoon, next to Piccadily Station. Lots of Brunch places around but as per, expect a queue outside

Ace hotel I’m surprised about. Always seemed busy and a few minor celebs would be around. I guess that lobby area was ravaged by the MacBookers who maybe bought one small coffee in the morning and stayed all day Laughing out loud

Some of the names on that list Jawdropping!

I think most of them will open under a new guise. A lot of people trying to (a) get out of not paying landlords or (b) getting shafted by landlords hiking up rents.

Corkage
The Beckford Bottleshop
The Grapes

Something different:
Yak Yeti Yak (Nepalese)
Sugarcane studio (Taiwanese bakery)
Oak Restaurant (Vegan/Vegetarian)
Cortado (Argentinian)
Jars Meze (Greek)
Noya's Kitchen (Vietnamese)

1 Michelin star:
The Olive Tree
Bybrook Restaurant (40 minute drive out from Bath)

Fancy:
Menu Gordon Jones (doesn't have a Michelin star, but deserves one)
The Circus Restaurant (one of my favs)
Clayton's Kitchen
Robun (just opened so can't comment, but looks good)

Favourite regular haunts for me:
The Scallop Shell
Thoughtful Bakery
Salathai
The Holburne Museum cafe (if the weather is nice have a walk along the canal and stop off here for refreshments outside. If your missus is a fan of Bridgerton, she'll definitely appreciate this!)

Other recs:
Colonna & Small's (for the coffee snobs)
Swoon (gelato)
Bath Farmers' Market in Green Park station (if it falls on a weekend you're over)
Taka Taka (famous for their greek wraps)
Schwartz Bros (burgers)
Soto Soto (Italian restaurant set in an underground vault)

Any recommendations for bars? In Bath for the first time next weekend

Zhonghua Snacks bangs, tiny dumpling place (also BYOB but mind because the nearest supermarkets don't have alcohol licenses).
Scotts All Day or Salisbury Arms for good pizza.
Tiffin Truck for superb Indian food.

One of the best pubs, The Free Press, often has interesting food on. Also adore The Punter but a little pricier. Blue Moon is great and does good pizzas, and The White Swan is an institution for late night Guinness (don't go for food).

Yippee Noodles.
Food trucks outside Thirsty or Calverleys Brewery.
For strictly vegan: Doppelganger Burgers, Thrive, and Vegan Vice (fried chicken/fast food).

Finally, my mates Dad runs a brilliant market stall called Hallouman if you're into your halloumi.

Probably too many suggestions if anything but PM me if you need any more help!

Anyone recommend a really good dim sum restaurant in london? More casual then high end.

Also, can’t see this lasting long in london surely?

There’s enough of a fuckboy population in London for it to thrive.
