"Very authentic Italian at a good prices. We enjoyed our waitperson, Rosa, and her suggestions about travel in Cadiz. Will remember her friendly service as much as we remember our amazing starter." - RonL40, TripAdvisor review. | #CapricciLondon

Pub No 8: The Anchor. I’ve first seen this pub a long time ago, just after I arrived in London. And eversince, I’ve wanted to visit it, because it looks so beautiful. Now the time has come and to be honest, I’m not sure what to say. First of all: it is definitely a pub for tourists, because it’s at Southbank. I’m impressed by its amount of rooms and bars, I guess it’s the biggest pub I’ve seen so far. You can even eat outside! Besides, it’s a Greene King Pub. The music was nice and the staff friendly. We ordered a chicken and mushroom pie. And now I must say, I’m a bit disappointed. The sides were cold and had no taste at all. The pie was okay, but nothing special. The gravy was really good though. Prices are good and the food arrived very, very quickly! But I wouldn’t eat here again.
Besides, this pub offers rooms to sleep as well.
All in all, I really love the look of the pub and the atmosphere in it, it’s incredible! But you shouldn’t come here for pies 😉
No better way to round off #nationalvegetarianweek than by reminding you that we launch our #bottomlessbrunch exactly a week today. A full plate and unlimited booze sound ok? More info & bookings via the link in our bio.
A quick morning session on a local pond, carp ripping the bottom up looking for the micro mass pellets and hemp I put in. After about 30 mins the float sailed away and within a couple of mins a lovely little common graced my net. #fishing#bankside#banksidetackle#commoncarp#pond#carp
@flea_flatironsquare open today. As we do every weekend :) Pop along for a browse, grab a coffee, maybe even a glass of something from the London Wine Week stalls - last day today - @drinkupldn. Expecting another ☀️day maybe with the odd ⛅️... but we doubt it 😜
The last couple of weeks exploring unknown & re-exploring known-to-me London with my dad and step mom who were visiting from Canada made me fall in love with the city again. However, it also made me more homesick and I realized I’ve been gone for so long that I now only get to see my family and friends back home, if I’m lucky, once a year, often less. I am very close with my family and those seldom short visits aren’t really enough.
I’ve also realized that I don’t know my own city anymore and I’m afraid whether I’ll still like it or not, as it’s gone through drastic changes over the last few years. I think for my own personal growth and development though, that I’ll have to move home, eventually, but both London and Vancouver are crazy expensive cities that nurses can’t really get that far ahead in, especially if I plant to carry out some of my dreams, all which require some ££$$, so perhaps I’ll have to go somewhere new again?! It’s all very confusing and I seem to be permanently on the fence about where I should settle.... do any other expats have trouble with these decisions or have conflicting thoughts about where to settle, fear of returning home, etc? _________________________________________________________ #london#canadian#england#canada#canadianinlondon#expat#livingabroad#londonlife#londoner#vancouverite#vancouver#thecityoflondon#londonwanderings#bankside#southbank#thethames#thames#londonphotography#photography#photooftheday#photographer#blog#wanderlust#blogger#londonguide
