Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

The End of River Cafe?

The End of River Cafe?

The River Cafe, in London, a popular Italian restaurant could soon be under new management.

Ruth Rogers, who has run it since 1987 with friend and joint proprietor Rose Gray, is disputing a rent increase proposed by the landlords of the building who are a pension fund run by Ruth's husband Roger.

The fund is administered by a law firm, who act as trustees.

The trustees are seeking annual rent of over £100K, the current rent of £87K.

The length of the dispute has caused the site to be now offered for sale to other chefs, such as Gordon Ramsay.
