Restoring local flavour to the Milford Haven Waterway

Food is social glue. It connects us across customs and cultures, just as it has Andy Woolmer of Pembrokeshire Oysters and Jonathan Williams at Café Môr. Together, they’re restoring local flavour to the fishing village of Angle. 

I visited them a couple of months ago, to understand why customers drive hundreds of miles to eat here. First, I see Jonathan Williams, one half of the duo I’m here to meet. He is bright and convivial. In minutes, he’s produced tea, coffee and plates of laverbread wraps with cockles and bacon, the whole lot shored up by smoked salmon, roasted peppers and pickled seaweed.  

Next, a pint of prawns arrives, along with Andy Woolmer, the can-do marine biologist putting Angle oysters back on the culinary map. Clouds break over the estuary that a nearby placard describes as “rich soup”. The previous weekend, it helped feed over 400 people courtesy of The Josie June – a former fishing boat reborn as the world’s first solar-powered, mobile seaweed kitchen. It’s recently dropped anchor in the beer garden to our right. Less than a mile away, on the…

Exquisite luxury in the heart of London

Over a century ago, two immigrant Armenian brothers opened in Paris their first shop at 18 boulevard de La Tour-Maubourg, selling caviar. A few decades later, they had established themselves as the purveyors of the finest caviar and other Russian specialties, such as Chatka crabs and vodkas. By the 1990s, they had incorporated smoked fish, […]

Whiskies from home and afar

A few years ago, it seemed that whisky (or whiskey, I leave it up to you) had lost favour with the public and was only consumed in rarefied circles by rarefied people. But the fact is that nothing could be further from the truth. In the UK, we love whisky and we drink it with […]

Hotel Arts Barcelona, Carrer de la Marina, 08005 Barcelona

When one does a lot of restaurant reviews, disappointment is, sometimes, unavoidable. Other times, one is surprised and finds the most magical places, food and people where least expected. This is the case of The Pantry, the newest restaurant in the Hotel Arts Barcelona. What looks like the back door of a delicatessen selling a […]

A new kind of Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is one of the most classic traditions one can think of in Britain. However, the tradition only dates back to the early 19th century, when the Duchess of Bedford started to serve tea and a few nibbles to her guest in the afternoon. Over the last decades we have seen it evolve and […]

Champagne, The Goring, and the Royal Family

With the first coronation of a British sovereign in 70 years, the red, white and blue bunting has been hung across the nation and beyond. Saucepans are being filled with the curried chicken that marked the crowning of Elizabeth II, while ovens are heating up the veggie-conscious 2023 alternative: Charles III’s officially-sanctioned spinach quiche. However, […]

A Bastion of Britishness

Tucked in between tailors, business consultants and law firms lies Wiltons, an institution in Mayfair which started its journey more than 280 years ago. What started as a shellfish stall near Haymarket in 1742 ran by George William Wilton, grew into Wilton’s Shellfish Mongers and Oyster Rooms, a business that kept expanding under generations of […]
