NEW! Where to grab a bite or a drink after a London Walk?
I've asked my London Walks colleagues to chip in their suggestions and I'll share them here regularly on The Daily Constitutional.
The Rules: All "reviews" were conducted anonymously and we paid our way. No kick-backs, no payola, no deals: these are the places that we London Walks guides - and London Walkers – choose when eating and drinking out and about in London. No buckshee burritos, nary a gratis granola bar was received in exchange for these recommendations.
And I promise never to use the word "eaterie". Seriously: have you EVER heard anyone SAY the word eaterie?
The Criteria: As well as the one-offs, the unique cafes, bars and stalls that make London so special, I'll be featuring reliable chains along the way. They have to be in London and within five minutes of the end of a London Walks tour.
I hope you enjoy them.
Have your say: As usual we'd like to hear from you – drop us a line with your own London foodie (and drinkie) tips.

Bradley's Spanish Bar
42-44 Hanway Street, W1
Near the end of the Rock'n'Roll London Walk, Fridays 2pm meet at Tottenham Court Road Station
Many a true Londoner was saddened last year when reports began to circulate that Bradley's Spanish Bar would be bulldozed by Crossrail.
I am delighted to report that rumours of its death have been greatly exaggerated!
Bradley's offers continental beers aplenty in a snug little bar (actually two bars, there's a basement, too) and great atmosphere. These aspects alone should be enough to recommend this place.
… making it the perfect spot to wind down after the Rock'n'Roll London Walk (or even to wind-up before the start!).
Here's how to find Bradley's…
The Rock'n'Roll London Walk meets at Tottenham Court Road station every Friday at 2pm
