Italian restaurant Mele e Pere in London's Soho got mixed reviews from the critics this weekend, with Jay Rayner and Giles Coren finding its food and ambience hit and miss.
Writing for the Times, Coren finds that Mele e Pere - meaning apples and pears - serves good seasonal Italian food but is a really bum place to sit and spend time.
Meanwhile Rayner says in his review for the Observer that the food is all a bit confused: "You can eat some nice things here. But you can also eat things that make you wonder what they were thinking."
Jeremy Lee's arrival in the kitchen of Quo Vadis has breathed new life into this rather faded Soho institution, says the Guardian‘s John Lanchester
After a frosty start and a bit of a wait, the Independent‘s Christopher Hirst has a rather enjoyable meal at Winteringham Fields in Lincolnshire.
In London, the Metro‘s Marina O'Loughlin says a night at the Lounge, a partnership between Rowley Leigh and cinema operator Odeon, makes for the perfect date night.
The Evening Standard‘s David Sexton is not impressed with the food served at Gregg Wallace's new restaurant, Gregg's Table at the Bermondsey Square hotel, scoring it just one star.
