The Palomar

Had been meaning to visit this restaurant for a while now to try a new type of cuisine from the heart of Jerusalem and I have to say I’m very glad to have done so . It’s a small but very friendly place as you walk in they have a walk in service where you can sit at the counter and watch the chefs work but we were lead through to the dining area at the back which was very nice & cozy. Our waitress Olge was excellent asking us if we’d been before then took us through the menu advising us of how many courses from each section we should order . We started with the RIP & Dip section where we had the most amazing Bread & dips along with Fish Falafel we then had the special of the day which was a lovely dish that included White Crab Meat just Stunning then onto the larger of the sharing menu dishes to which we had the amazing Octo-Hummus and the fantastic Jerusalem Mix with a side order of Josperised Aubergine plus a Fattoush Salad all the dishes have this delicate charcoal,nutty and slightly creamy texture but taste delicious Now on to my favourite course of any meal Dessert and we weren’t let down in anyway we decided to go for the sharing dessert called a Jerusalem Mess which was fantastic but me being me I couldn’t settle for that and when I saw they had a Chocolate Fondue with Peanut Brittle I couldn’t resist and I’m so glad I didn’t it was gorgeous   Definitely looking forward to returning soon and I would highly recommend this restaurant

A Fantastic Evening at The Artichoke 

This was the first time we’ve been here for an evening and what an excellent dining experience it was . A very warm and friendly greeting on arrival then escorted to our table to let the festivities begin. We decided to go for the Tasting Menu with matching Wines and I have to say it was heaven starting with a fantastic Trout dish then an amazing Crab Thermidor followed by a delightful Artichoke dish and stunning Cod course then on to the main courses and my highlight a glorious Venison with orange curd and the braised Beef which was very rich . The matching wines were a delight coming from Italy,Hungary,Austria,South Africa and France. Now to dessert a fabulous Poached Pear Galette and a Cambridge Cream & Rhubbarb . All in all it was truly a fantastic evening which was made even better due to the great warm and excellent service from every member of staff . So if it’s a fantastic evening with amazing food and wine in a great little town then take a trip to Amersham and visit this restaurant. I’m already looking forward to returning in June

Canto Corvino 

If good Italian food is your desire then I highly recommend paying a visit to Canto Corvino which is conveniently just a 2 minute walk from Liverpool Street Station on the outskirts of Spitalfields . To say the food was amazing is an understatement and the flavours are very different to many Italian restaurants. We had a nice warm Italian welcome and were seated in front of the open kitchen and started with cocktails which were 2 for 1 while we looked at the menu to which we chose the Beetroot Salad, Burrata & Lobster Arancini staters this was followed by fantastic main courses of Hake & Old Spot Pig both matched by a lovely glass of Red & White wines from Puglia . Then for me my favourite course Dessert and were equally as good as the first two courses a Salted Caramel Bomb , French Toast with Caramalised Banana and some delightful homemade Ice Cream . All this put together with such a friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere which is no more than you expect from an Italian restaurant. I would definitely put this place high on any list of restaurants you have to visit

Orange Tree Pub &Restaurant

A great Sunday Lunch from a local pub  and excellent value for money. The restaurant serves a wide selection of dishes on the menu which makes it an ideal place to visit. The were very friendly which is always what you hope for . On a Sunday there is a Two hour turnaround but when we said that we didn’t know they were very accommodating . Due to the extensive menu and friendly service I would definitely recommend a visit

<a title=”Read Square Meal’s review of Haywards Restaurant” target=”_top” href=”;utm_medium=Blog&amp;utm_campaign=Link”><img width=”170″ height=”90″ src=”; alt=”Square Meal” /></a>Couldn’t think of a better way to end the year than visiting our favourite local restaurant. This was our 21st visit of the year and the food & service was consistently as good as always . If you like fine dining but don’t want to go into London the this is the place for you. The restaurant serves excellent European Cuisine and also has great Wines to match your food . The restaurant has a nice friendly atmosphere and is a great place for couples or groups and can host bigger parties in the Stable

The Rabbits Pub 

Great way to start the New Year with a lovely Sunday Lunch at The Rabbits Pub. The food and service was again a pleasure the ladies really do look after you. The dinners are a nice hearty size and are beautifully cooked which to me is just what you want when going out for a Pub Lunch

Having visited Jinjuu Mayfair last month which we loved was very keen to return so today we dropped in on Jinjuu in Kingly Street and even though the Restaurant was busy they were very accommodating and found is a place. The waiters were very friendly and the service was very good. There is such a wide choice of delicious things to have but we decided on in a lightish lunch . We started with really tasty Pork Belly Tacos then some Carnitas Fries followed by Korean Fried Chicken which is amazing to finish we had a delightful Korean salad with Prawns and Asian Slaw . I would highly recommend a visit to ether Jinjuu for fantastic Korean cuisine
