Somerset House. Strand, London WC2R 1LA
East London has a new haven for good food, good wine and good music. Bambi, owned by James Dye who bought us the iconic Frank's in Peckham, takes over the spot at Netil House from previous residents Bright. Floor to ceiling windows flood the space with light and at night the restaurant turns more-so into a bar, with a DJ and amazing wine list. Decks played by Charlie Dark, old school records and vintage sound system offer true authenticity. Head down to Bambi on a Saturday night and you'll be sure to have a great time!

Killers of the Flower Moon
Released 20th October
Set in the early 1900s, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone star in the Killers of the Flower moon, directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese, a film adaptation from David Grann's best-selling book and brought to life through screenplay written by Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese.
Killers of the Flower Moon unfolds as an epic western crime drama, where genuine love collides with unimaginable betrayal, featuring notable actors such as Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons. And is a sobering appraisal of America's relationship with Indigenous peoples and an artistic zenith for Scorsese. Heartfelt and one to be watched on the big screen.

With its crisply ironed white tablecloths and candles adorning each table, Bistro Freddie radiates a classic, vintage bistro ambiance. However, the prominent open kitchen at the back of the restaurant is fresh, contemporary and brimming with creativity.
Bistro Freddie is the creation of the masterminds behind Crispin & Bar Crispin, who played a significant role in revolutionising the city's natural wine scene and redefining the modern wine bar. Instead, everything at Bistro Freddie's exudes understated sophistication, creating an intimate, dimly lit and classically charming atmosphere.
To complement their menu, Bistro Freddie offer an all-French wine selection meticulously curated by Crispin's very own Alex Price, who has scoured the French countryside for an array of natural, low-intervention, and biodynamic wines. It's a perfect blend of Old World charm with contemporary flair, making it an ideal choice for those seeking an innovative bistro experience.
