  • Our new favourite London hang-out

    Last week saw an historic gathering of power players for a day of diplomatic discussions. EU leaders discussing the terms of Brexit? Nah, I’m talking Muddy Stiletto’s national conference, obviously! With your local superblog now boasting 18 (yes flippin eighteen!) regional editions, us editors convened en masse in the smoke to um, drink quite a lot of […]

  • 10 party tips from top local caterer

    There are some things that I thought I’d nail by middle age. Number one, it was part of my plan to have performed a daring, sexy image overhaul by now (nope). Number two, I’m supposed to be fluent in at least one language other than English (er, nope). And thirdly, I really expected myself to be an assured, […]

  • Sunday roasts with the most

    Quite frankly the only thing likely to entice me outside at this time of year is a cosy Kent pub, roaring fire and good old Sunday roast.

Afterwards we seek out the ultimate reward – mouth-watering meats, glorious […]

  • The best way to spend a festive Sunday with the family!

    I’ll admit it, most of our weekends are taken up with taxi-ing the mudlets to various clubs or birthday parties and dealing with housework, homework and hangovers. But every now and then I insist on a day trip that takes us away from the routine of the rat race. Which is how we ended up at […]

  • Eat here: The Twenty Six

    I think I’m right in saying that this restaurant is Mr Muddy K’s favourite place to eat (do correct me if I’m wrong there, dear. Heaven only knows, *eye roll*, you usually do)… If you haven’t yet discovered the joys of The Twenty Six, then step this way, and let me show you around – […]
