Wyatt & Jones, restaurant review: Kingsmill'n'marg tea shops beware! Something is stirring in sleepy Broadstairs

When I visited the (very good) independent restaurant Pint Shop in Cambridge a few months back, I wished ruefully that there were something like it near me. I've just seen from an industry publication that the folks behind it have plans to roll it out (as those folk say) into a mini chain in other affluent towns and cities. Smart move.

Rachel Khoo has singled out Channel 4 for criticism

I had wondered if it was trite or not to pull together the news about the girls raped and murdered in India, the Sudanese mother sentenced to death, and the Pakistani woman killed by stoning at her own family’s hands, into a discussion of whether violence against females was increasing. I decided that it probably was... and then I listened to yesterday morning’s Today programme, which did just that. It did not jar to discuss all three, and also to mention the abducted Nigerian schoolgirls.

I was recently asked by a journalism student at City University London how to make it as a restaurant critic. After confessing I gave myself the job (shameless, I know), one of my comments was that if you go to a restaurant whose cuisine you don't know, take an expert.
