As I ventured through an understated doorway on Holland Park Avenue, and downstairs to the restaurant, I wasn't sure what to expect. The room I entered was a sophisticated basement - simple décor, elegant table settings and glassware all working with the original structure of the room.

Living in London, I don't have a car and haven't driven in years and so seem to spend a lot of my time on trains visiting friends and family. I would say I get a train to visit someone once or twice a month at least!

Now up pops Parlour on Kensal Rise. Ok, so it pops up on my register, having been there for a quite a few months now. A more gentrified word. One moves gently into a parlour. Who knows, there may be ladies about.

As much as I genuinely enjoy broccoli, eating clean and staying lean, I also love ice cream, cheese and cupcakes. One of the ways I stay on the straight and narrow is to treat myself to a cheat meal about once a month.

We are now trending into the bizarre. Are you really expecting us to eat a full breakfast and then order a rack of lamb or a beef fillet after that, we wonder... Never mind the fuss anymore, we just decided to go with what was available and order off the breakfast menu.

I could honestly say that I had never had a bad meal at Darcy's in the former hands of Ruth Hurren. It was our 'go-to' special occasion restaurant, the perfect venue for birthdays, anniversaries and a Sunday lunch that was incredibly hard to beat.

Think of Santa, think of the seaside? Most people don't! But Bournemouth residents (buoyed by the council's ambitious plans) enjoy winter as much as our scorching summer, with tonnes of Christmas fun for kids of all ages.

In Haggis Heaven

Sometimes it's the little things. As a regular and often weary traveller, what I really don't want to do when I get into a hotel room is go crawling around on the floor, reaching behind desks and following lamp cables behind chairs... all to try to find a spare electrical socket to plug in a charger. And often there isn't a spare socket unless you unplug the mini-fridge or one of the lamps fi

Haggis Bobotie? What on earth is Haggis Bobotie? First of all it helps if you pronounce it right. It sounded to me like some Scottish delicacy I'd missed out on, as I was pronouncing it like Bobbity. The right way to say it is B-bow-tee, as the Manager of the Loch Ness Inn in Lewiston, Isla Urquhart, explained.

Mr Ross Doesn't Work For Free

It wasn't until the end of the shift that one of the girls I was working with let it slip that I wouldn't be getting paid for my time. Yes, that is correct. Aside from a few pounds in tips, I wasn't getting compensated or my time. I might as well just have spent the evening engaging in my normal routine of obsessive cleaning and reality television.

Unlike the States your tip does not make up our pay packets but they do go a long way to making our job a damn sight less sufferable and your dining experience subsequently a helluva lot more pleasant - with the right attitude in both camps it's sure to be a win/win situation.

Supper Club Superlatives

Supper Clubs have revolutionised London's dining scene: rather than cooking in a restaurant, enterprising chefs host in their homes, where, without the risks and overheads of a restaurant, they tend toward the experimental, with food that you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

Sampling Korean Food

Other than Samsung smartphones, the big import exciting London's bloggers is Korean food: whilst a row of Korean eateries has existed behind Centrepoint for years, the recent explosion in street-food and markets has brought Korean flavours to a wider audience. But, apparently, there's more to Korean food than mixed rice, Kimchi (fermented cabbage) and chilli pepper paste.

Both my guest and I (guest? It was my mum) got a bit lost as we wended our way to the Great Northern Hotel this week, which sits between the newly-refurbished King's Cross Station and its close neighbour St. Pancras. It's all those exits - utterly baffling.

We were a little unsure of the place at first, as when we checked in and made our way up the grand staircase to our room, there was a kind of reverential hush about the hotel. It was the kind of feeling you might get if you were a guest at Buckingham Palace, I imagine.

Hot on the hooves of the horsemeat scandal, Noma, widely considered to be the world's best restaurant, was discovered to have sent 67 diners home with Norovirus during the month of February. It's not quite what you'd expect from a tasting menu that costs £170 a head
