After a successful first year at the Tiki Shack in Nottingham, on the 9th of August London saw STFD take centre stage at The Old Queens Head in Angel.  A few of my uni friends came to visit and we enjoyed kick starting the weekend at STFD. It was a great night and I can’t wait for the next one taking place on Friday the 20th of September.

For my flatmates birthday we ventured to the leafy Primrose Hill one evening where we spent the evening at The Princess of Wales pub. I had the Princess burger topped with blue Monday, bacon, chips and onion rings for dinner (£12.50). A little pricey for a burger but let me tell you this, it was to die-for! Brioche bun, medium rare beef, melted Stilton cheese and crispy streaky bacon. I think I hardly spoke during the meal because I was so focused on enjoying every mouthful. Definitely recommend a visit .
