Crown & Pepper, Caterham, London CR3
Hello RGLers!

This week's featured article is for the Crown and Pepper in Caterham, a pub that incorporates an Indian restaurant at the back. They also have a bar menu if you don't fancy the full sit-down experience - try the okra.

New this week, we have the Union Jack pub in Southwark, that perhaps isn't living up to its potential beer-wise, and the French House restaurant in Crystal Palace, a cheerful establishment themed around '60's Francophone pop music (the drinks menu looks pretty good too).

There's an update for the Prince George (just off Queensbridge Road in Dalston) following a visit, which reveals its all-important lime and soda pricing to be significantly cheaper than the Union Jack's.

Finally, Fujiyama in Brixton has closed: lovers of spinach ohitashi will have to venture elsewhere.

Antelope, Surbiton, London KT6

This week's featured article is The Antelope, KT6 4AW, a pub in Surbiton with an on-site microbrewery. Even if it's a bit dimly-lit, there are 15 handpulls for ale, and food ranging from good to odd.

Two new articles are: Thai Silk, an efficient and fairly cheap restaurant and bar by Southwark tube; and Cafe Zizou in Twickenham, if you find yourself in that part of town.

The reported closure is The Half and Half in Croydon, soon to be a cocktail bar it seems.

Essex Roti Hut, Rainham, London RM13

Evening all!

This week's featured article is for the Essex Roti Hut in Rainham, serving Caribbean food for both locals and hungry travellers to sunny Rainham. (The average July rainfall in Rainham is just 40.7mm, well below the UK average of around 78mm, so I can legitimately call it sunny.) Be warned: the veggie ackee isn't veggie!

There are two new articles this week. The first is for the Blue Tree Kitchen, just off the South Bank near the Oxo Tower. I got my lunch there today - a sort of shredded courgette, roasted sweet potato and feta bake thing. It was ok, if a bit salty, but had enough veg in it to convince me I was eating something healthy. I can confirm this is par for the course. Secondly we have Xhauri, an Albanian restaurant in Walthamstow with an informal atmosphere and traditional dishes I would seek advice on how to pronounce.

There's an update to the article for the Great Northern Railway Tavern in Hornsey following a visit. The beer selection sounds great and there's free wifi. And the average July rainfall is a tiny 34.8mm! Let's all go to Hornsey for our summer hols!

natural kitchen

This week's featured article is Natural Kitchen, W1U 5JX, an organic cafe and deli on Marylebone High Street. It also has an upstairs restaurant, which is a bit pricy but gets thumbs up. Attracts the usual upmarket Marylebone crowd.

The new article is for East Meets West, a restaurant in Croydon focusing on the cuisine of Dongbei in North-East China, and I can assure you that certain influential figures within the RGL universe are very excited about this opening. I'm sure we will hear more about this restaurant, and should book our trips to Waddon now.

There's an update to The King Edward VII pub (or "King Eddie's" to its friends) in Stratford.

Finally, two reported closures are the independent bookshop Woolfson and Tay near Southwark, and Caribbean Scene Family, a Caribbean restaurant in Stratford.
