After munching your way through March, you’re ready to step away from all the tasty treats and pig-out spots London has to offer, right? Nah, us neither and thanks to the insatiable hunger of our friends over at LondonOntheinside, you won’t have to. Don’t waste time searching the web, here are their top five picks to satisfy your April appetite. 

The Cat and Mutton, Broadway Market, April 10
‘We’re pretty excited about the re-opening of the iconic Hackney boozer, not only because we’ve had a sneak peek inside and at the food and booze menus – which are amazing – but also because upstairs will now house Pearl’s, a cocktail bar from Tom Gibson the man behind our favourite cocktail den Ruby’s.’

Bake Your Dreams Come True, Truman Brewery, April 10
‘For one day only Tate + Lyle is hosting a pop-up where wannabe bakers can pitch their ideas to a panel of experts and receive free advice. It’s the free cake we’re going for though, with talks of an edible installation and if it’s anything like the edible hotel they did, we’re in for a treat.’

Fairground, Kingsland Road, April 12
‘Haggerston is getting its very own fairground this month but don’t worry – there’s no naff rides! Oh no, this is three floors of music, education and food and it’s running for ten weeks only. Get involved soon, we reckon this will get pretty busy fast…’

The Other Art Fair, Marylebone, April 24-27
‘If like us you have a love for art but don’t have have the funds to support it, get down to The Other Art Fair where you can buy art direct from the artists and cut out the middle man – and the mark-ups. Who knows you might end up owning a piece by the next Tracey Emin.’

Voodoo Blues, Roxx, starts April 4
The latest pop-up from The Wandering Chef kicks off on Friday and it’s looking like a goodie. Food is themed around the Deep South – think soft shell crab po-boy sliders and fried chicken. Cocktails come with whisky (and should carry a warning) and the entertainment is pretty saucy (we won’t ruin the surprise!). The perfect mix of food and fun.’
