As we'll be away for the holiday period (happy Winterval!), I've left this until later in the week. That's my excuse (it's nothing to do with being lazy) and I'm sticking with it.

Chicken and Frog, Brentwood, Essex

This week's featured article celebrates the inclusion of Brentwood in the London travel zone system, and is a small children's bookshop, Chicken and Frog, CM15 9AT, delightfully rammed with books.

One addition is a Swedish bakery cafe called Fabrique, in Covent Garden. Small, industrial chic, and typically pricy, but strong coffee can be had.

Finally, the reported impending closure of Brew Wharf has now happened.

White Hart, Stepney, E1
Hullo all!

This week's featured article is for the White Hart in Stepney (not to be confused with the other White Hart a few hundred yards further down the A11 by the Whitechapel Gallery). The featured White Hart contains its own microbrewery so you'll have plenty of fresh beer to drink if you visit, and some decent food to soak it up with.

Aside from our Cockney drinking den we have a very Brentwood-focused week for new pages. Pub-wise there's the Brewery Tap, a small pub that does not have its own microbrewery as far as I can tell; the Rising Sun, which is in the Good Beer Guide and will do you a pickled egg; the Spread Eagle, which does scones and coffee as well as real ale, and a traditional boozer in the form of the Victoria Arms, which I'm pleased to report possesses a carpet. Elsewhere in Brentwood there's the Chicken and Frog, a children's bookshop, and Japanese food at Sushi City. The latter plays techno covers of Terence Trent D'Arby - I'm sold.

Finally another non-Brentwood addition: USSR Ltd in Leyton, which appears to be a Russian version of Aldi? I will admit to being intrigued both by the concept and the name! I wonder if they play techno versions of Дима Билан?
