Hello and welcome back as RGL takes you to...

The Teapot, Forest Hill, London SE23

Leafy Forest Hill, where our featured article, cafe Teapot, SE23 3HF, awaits you. It's not big, but it will do you a good panino, and child-friendly portion sizes if you have children with you, which you may not.

There's a new entry for Jackson and Rye, a chain bar/restaurant in Richmond. I know there's one in Soho, as I've walked past it many times, but that's not a review. You can follow the link for that but be warned, there is a distinct lack of blueberries.

Finally, the reported permanent closure of Matsuri, a teppanyaki restaurant in St James's, by Piccadilly. You might miss some of its excellent food, but you won't miss the prices.

Cineworld Haymarket, St James's, SW1

Hello!

This week's featured article is Cineworld Haymarket, which is a cinema I find myself visiting quite often (for membership related reasons). It's an actual old cinema building, which feels rare enough in the centre of town, and screen 1 is excellent. I'd be wary of the smaller basement screens, though.

A new (stub) article is another new cinema, ArtHouse in leafy Crouch End. The other new entry is a write-up of vegan stalwart the Bonnington Cafe in Vauxhall. Depending on when you visit, there will be a different chef, but the food should all be fresh and tasty.

Finally, we've marked the Windmill in Sydenham as permanently closed.

Adchaya

This week's featured article is Adchaya, SW19 1AZ, a Sri Lankan canteen-style restaurant in Wimbledon, that serves large filling meals for £5, and plenty of spicy food. It also has some excellent South Indian dishes too.

One new article is Brasserie Rayon d'Or, a bar/restaurant in Croydon where it looks like you can just get a drink if you want, probably the best you can hope for a place named after synthetic fabric (PS it's not really).

The reported closure is Cafe Naz, a Bangladeshi restaurant on Brick Lane, which may only be closing temporarily (we're not sure).

It also seems as if The Captain's Cabin just off Haymarket has closed, but we haven't verified this, and would appreciate more info.

Somers Town Coffee House, Somers Town, NW1

This week's featured article is the Somers Town Coffee House, NW1 1HS, which despite its name is a gastropub near Euston station. It's been refurbished since it was a French-themed pub.

There are four additions this week: The Clapton Hart pub in Lower Clapton, another fine Antic outpost; Shane's on Chatsworth, a restaurant not too far away; The North Pole, a self-described craft beer pub in Islington; and Tramlink Route 4, a new tram route on the Tramlink in south London using some extra double-tracking (but no new stations).

There's been an update to the stub entry for The Lord Palmerston, a Geronimo Inns gastropub in Dartmouth Park.

Five permanent closures have been reported: Ping Pong's branch on Goodge Street; the Texas Embassy Cantina by Trafalgar Square; Melati, a Malaysian restaurant in Soho; The Compass, a gastropub in Pentonville, at the end of Chapel Market (reopening as another gastropub called Hundred Crows Rising); and Langton's Bookshop in Twickenham.

Finally, confirmation that Morgan M has fully moved from its site in Holloway to Smithfield.
