John Soane Museum (Museum)

An absolutely wonderful place, a cultural gem. I was blown away by the sarcophagus and the huge collection of historic objects. Is actually quite a humbling place. Everyone must go.

The Abbeville The Abbeville (Pub / Gastro Pub)
01 June 2009

Nicely laid out local gastro-style pub. I have had better food at other similarly styled modern pubs but I don't think The Abbeville tries to be overly grand or something it's not. The food is a little touch-and-go depending on the day and sometimes things are ordered that do not come as described, but the quality is usually good, especially the puds. The wine list is fair and big enough for a good choice. Service can be slow at busy times but is always pleasant and helpful in my experience.

Not worth travelling a long way for but definitely one to head to if nearby.

Moxon's Moxon's (Fishmongers)
01 June 2009

Moxon's is definitely a place you are happy to discover close to where you live. Although a very small shop, the range is good, the fish incredibly fresh and the staff mostly helpful and informative (tend to be a little more helpful to attractive women). The monkfish tails and the fresh shellfish are superb.

Moen's really is a wonderful place, a true foodie mecca. The meat is excellent quality, the range fabulous and the deli and sundries unique and varied (only place I can find that does fresh porcini and great fresh meat stocks). I must say that it is definitely overpriced though - having spent £50 on a modest fillet of beef for 5 people once, I am fully aware of that sinking feeling when they ring it through the till and you force yourself to smile politely and hand over your card.

Clapham Farmers' Market Clapham Farmers' Market (Food Market)

I live very close and used to go a lot but have noticed the number of stalls dwindle significantly of late. Hopefully they will increase during the summer...

The only thing I go for now is the sausage baps from the sausage guy at the back - they are the best ever and the only sure cure of a hangover. Worth the trip for one of those, if not for the few overpriced stalls.
