My Hungry Valentine?

An independent London restaurant guide

From the best pizza to the high-end/no-fuss/up-and-coming chef restaurant, including your favourite gastropub, we love them all. We have been to all the places we recommend, anonymously and at our own expense.

A food & drinks consulting agency

A full range of communications & marketing services. Some of the things we do:

Trend analyses
Hospitality line-up curation: chefs, sommeliers, bartenders… You name it
Bespoke events, from concept to execution
Lifestyle editorial content: food, drinks, travel…

A ceramics studio

Beautifully imperfect tableware, handmade by Valentine from recycled stoneware in her London studio.
