    Sellers' three week pop-up in Bermondsey also features the Merry Men bar. It's a walk-in, 'no reservation' spot with room for up to 40.

    London has no shortage of restaurants with decent views but once you've eaten at London in the Sky everything else must pale by comparison. After all, what bricks and mortar restaurant can compare to being winched 100ft up in the air so you can dine suspended over the city?

    For the past four years this restaurant has been popping up all over London and for 2018 it's trebling in size and putting on an impressive roster of

    For just a few days during the recess, you can enjoy a weekday lunch at the Peers’ Dining Room. Chefs there have put together a seasonal 3-course menu

    If you haven't already heard of it then you can be sure that at some point in 2018 you'll end up eating at Great Guns Social.

    He’ll be doing a ‘banquet-style’ menu riffing off the Nottingham fairytale - that's
