There are many out there trying to predict the great new food trends for 2017: virtual-reality dining, a (new) vegetable revolution, the counter-revolution of meat. Trying to wade through the various claims to this year’s trends is as hard as the dough on Pasteis de nata (Portuguese custard tarts). We’re not convinced the trends are […]

…of our cleaners There’s a lot we do here at UnderTheDoormat. We greet guests when they arrive, and are on call 24 hours a day before we personally check them out at the end of their stay.

We’re always wandering: whether it’s rushing to work; or heading back from the gym, late for that dinner. But how often do we walk? Or even go for a walk? (Tube strikes aside) Walking opens up an entirely new, spontaneous and local side of the city, away from the well-worn paths of the car, bus […]

You will often find us pacing the streets of our lovely local London neighbourhoods, in search of new shops, restaurants and bars (!) to try throughout the city. We think that the best way to show you an area is from the people who live and work there, so we spoke to – and filmed […]

Sometimes, there are tempting thoughts to try something completely different: […]

The yuletide yields, Christmas is complete and the festive celebrations have culminated in one evening to welcome the New Year. But before we begin those pesky resolutions, there’s still time to enjoy ourselves at the start of 2017! We have a wealth of suggestions for how to spend New Year’s Day (and beyond) in London.   […]
