Cafés

  • Muddy reviews: Fego, Marlow

    Attention brunchers! It's perfect poached eggs aplenty at Fego, a laid-back, family-friendly café in the middle of Marlow.

  • Fego, Beaconsfield

    Heading to Beaconsfield and need a steer on a cool café? Tap just here, and watch me pull Fego out of the hat. I know, it's magic!

  • 31 Below, Marylebone

    You can keep your Oxford, Bond and Kensington High Streets - it's Marylebone High Street and its new watering hole, 31 Below, all the way for me!

  • 12 places to eat yourself slim

    Eating healthily and eating out don't have to be mutually exclusive. You can dine like a king in these Bucks and Oxon healthy hotspots... without ending up looking like Henry VIII.

  • Best January cheap eats

    If you caned the credit card at Christmas swanky dinner dates are probably off the menu this month. What you need is a Muddy-approved cheap but chic dining spot. Table for two, madame?

  • Sweet dreams

    One scoop or two? OK, three it is! Dessert cafés are all the rage and your little people will love Creams in Xscape MK for its bubble waffles and Oreo-everything. Buckle in for the sugar rush.

    • Scandi foodie invasion!

      Love a bit of Scandi style? No need to head into Shoreditch, there's an influx of Nordic cool around these parts with a whole raft of new groovy cafés and bakeries.

    • Cool local cafés

      Looking for a decent flat white off the beaten track? From rural barns to funky industrial spaces, follow me...

      • Chiltern Firehouse… to Hartwell Café!

        Hartwell House café has upped its game, with a Chiltern Firehouse chef joining the team and brunch, lunch and afteroon tea all on the menu.

      • cafe front black and white striped marquee

        Gorge in Goring!

        The vintage-inspired interiors at Pierreponts cafe in Goring, Oxfordshire will please your inner granny, but the food offering is bang up to date.
