Morning all, apologies for a slightly belated blog post this week.

Our featured article is for the Bonnington Cafe in Vauxhall, which serves vegetarian and vegan food at very reasonable prices - try the Cajun-blackened tofu.

There's a new article for the Finborough Arms in West Brompton. It's run by the same dude as the Gunmakers in Clerkenwell so expect a good selection of ales and ciders, and pizzas supplied by the Firezza next door. The upstairs is a lot bigger than the Gunmakers though, they've even managed to fit a whole theatre in it.

Finally, the article for the Queen's Head in Mitcham has been updated after a recent visit, which revealed the presence of a Metallica pinball table! I would go into more detail about the roast dinners or the real ale but frankly Nothing Else Matters (sorry).

Spotted a Megadeth fruit machine in your local? Let us know in the comments and I shall selflessly venture forth and test it out...

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.

Tapas Brindisa, Borough, SE1

This week's featured article is Tapas Brindisa, SE1 1TJ, a high turnover tapas place by the corner of Borough Market, near London Bridge station. Even on a Saturday, you should be able to get a table without too long a wait, and the food is still decent after all these years.

New articles are: Pratts and Payne, an Antic pub in Streatham replacing a Goose pub; and a short one about The Globe, a fairly unmemorable pub opposite Baker Street station.

Reported closures are: The Masons' Arms in Walworth; and The Plough Inn, another victim of Young's sell-off of their pub estate (and heritage). It's a rather attractive building, so a sad loss.

This week's featured article is Canton Arms, SW8 1XP, a gastropub near Stockwell Station in South Lambeth.

It's a cut above your standard gastropub, with a head chef whose CV includes the Eagle in Clerkenwell (London's original gastropub) and the Anchor and Hope in Borough.


Recent additions to RGL include BonVelo in Herne Hill, Books For Cooks on Portobello Road, Beanery at Loughborough Junction, and Devonshire House in Crouch End. Also, the East London Line extension to Highbury & Islington opened today. Hurrah!

Reported closures are Cove in Covent Garden, Fat Badger on Portobello Road, Gaff on Holloway Road, Squat & Gobble in Fitzrovia, and Wabi Shebele on New Kent Road.
