The past 36 hours I’ve been entertaining a New Yorker in London. The strategy was to show off our fine pubs, no point in going down the trendy bar route. Can’t compete. It was epic and horrendously messy really… Being eager to please the grand tour went as follows:

LN-CC shop.

Carpenters Arms

Ye Old Mitre

St Johns

The Jerusalem Tavern

The Duke

Soane Museum

Hunterian Museum


London Fields Lido

Broadway Market

Rochelle’s Canteen

The most exquisite wedding party in Spitalfields in a gorgeous venue.

Shoreditch House (boring)

He was suitably impressed but I am now feeling it a bit, and wondering how long I can string out Glastonbury on the telly, sparked out on the sofa – a bit criminal with the sun out. Got an obscure selection of morning after food: lovage and peas. Fortunately/unfortunately I now have a birthday to go and enjoy. Yelp. I think I peaked too early.
