I visited Caffè Caldesi with old school friends last week. First time I've been in a few years, but as good as I'd remembered - classic Italian menu done really well and at sensible prices. The scallop starter was a notable highlight. The service was...More

Either lunch, or dinner, or anything in between, the food won't disappoint. Down the alleyway to the side you'll find their cookery school, so you can expect well prepared, cooked, and presented dishes. Summer afternoons you can sit outside in the sunshine as shoppers dawdle...More

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
