Who am I?

Hello, I’m Charlotte! 🙂 I moved from Wales to London 7 years ago and fell in love with the city from the word go. My day job is working at a Theatre and Production company in the West End but my evenings and weekends are full of all things London, and all things food. After a few years of living here, my obsession grew into this.


I started NOTSOBASICLONDON.com because I am completely obsessed with telling everyone about amazing food London has to offer. From the amazing street food to fine dining , there is seriously no other place like it in the world. Don’t expect your average ‘restaurant reviews’ but expect ‘must eat’ bucket lists, food articles and monthly round ups of the best food to eat in London. Just think of me as as a friend chatting to you about the best places to eat in the capital. The thing I can say I’m most proud of on this website is that I have eaten in every single place and would never recommend anywhere I haven’t tried. Rest assured you’re in qualified hands.

What’s The London Food Social?

Each month I run a food club called The London Food Social’ which is a monthly meet up of people who love food and want to meet others that do too! Find out more about that here. 

What camera do you use?

A Sony RX100. I’ve had it since the start of my blogging journey and I couldn’t recommend it enough. It’s my little pocket rocket.

I have such a passion for the food scene in London and I want to take you on that journey with me 🙂 I always say if you’ve eaten in London, you’ve eaten the whole world.
