This week's featured article is Dacre Arms, SE13 5BU, a nice little locals' pub on the Blackheath/Lee borders.

It is quite possibly the best pub for some miles around.

Reported closures are Kiasu in Bayswater, Eastcote Bookshop in Eastcote, Harris's Cafe Rest in Shepherd's Bush, Thai Pavilion East in Lambeth, and Mexicali in Soho.

On the bright side, Green Borders in Leytonstone and Royal Oak (Polly Clean Stairs) in Bexleyheath have both reopened.

This week's featured article is Kazan, SW1V 1DW, a Turkish restaurant near Victoria Station. It's not the cheapest, but the quality is good.

(Apologies for the recent break in service — we're back now.)

We also have several closures to report, sadly: Miso on Haymarket, More on Tooley Street, New Loong Kee Cafe in Camberwell, Kastoori in Tooting, Chakalaka in Chiswick (and probably the Putney one too), Temple Bar and Beaten Path in Walworth, and Rootmaster off Brick Lane.

This week's featured article is Villandry, W1W 5QB, a restaurant, cafe/bar and food shop, all in one premises on Great Portland Street not too far south of the Tube station.

In other news, rglondon is now mirrored over at Dreamwidth, and at some point in the new year we'll be switching entirely to posting over there. (I'll create a syndicated feed for people who prefer to read on LiveJournal, but commenting will be there only, so if you're not sure how to comment on Dreamwidth then just ask and I'll talk you through it.)

This week's featured article is Gourmet Garden, NW4 3AX, a rather good Malaysian restaurant in Hendon.

It does proper Singaporean, Malaysian, and Chinese-Malaysian food as well as a handful of things that would be familiar to those expecting the usual Anglicised Chinese food. Accessibility-wise, there's a small step up to get in and a few more shallow steps/ridges to get to the toilets.



Recent additions to RGL include Ye Olde Red Lion and Songkran, both in Cheam. One reported closure: the Evangelist near Blackfriars Station.
