EATING.

Don’t know where to eat in London? Let us show you around.

WRITING.

We’ve been writing about restaurants since the 90s. We can make your words work

CONSULTING.

Restaurateurs: is it time for a health check? Let us MOT your restaurant

We are working journalists with over 20 years’ experience writing for restaurant and travel guides. As 2Forks, we also do consultancy for the hospitality industry. Alongside bespoke projects for hotels, restaurants, bars and event companies, we offer the Restaurant MOT, an enhanced mystery-dining product for new and established restaurants.

We’ve been putting our restaurant obsession to further good use, running London restaurant tours for private and corporate clients. Whether you’re a restaurateur looking for inspiration or a passionate out-of-towner wanting to check out the latest hotspots, we’ll help you make the most of your trip. Just make sure you’re hungry. Or just greedy. Preferably both.

Restaurant MOT

We used to tell everyone else what was good or bad about your restaurant. Now we want to tell you. The 2Forks Restaurant MOT offers bite-size consultancy – quick, affordable, and no-nonsense – for a fixed price with no ongoing contract.

After more than a decade of tireless London restaurant reviewing, we’ve got pretty good at picking up on the details. We notice what your customers notice, and plenty more. We’ll sift through your customer experience, salute your hits, flag up your misses and attach a flashing blue light to the howlers that could sink you on social media.

We’ll drop in twice and prepare a detailed 10-page report on your strengths and weaknesses, as well as a step-by-step action plan to help improve your offering. We’ll then sit down with you afterwards to chat through the report and answer any questions.

We’re the friends who’ll tell your restaurant quietly that it has spinach in its teeth or a piece of loo roll on its shoe. But we’ll also pat it on the back when it’s being brilliant. Give us a shout for a chat about how we can help you.

Testimonials
  • Ben Walton, owner, Ben's Canteen

    “I’m hiring a new operations manager and group exec chef. The first thing I’ll do when the new staff arrive is pass them a copy of the M.O.T. It’s a really great tool to hand down to your managers as you know it’s digestible and they can do something with it.”

    Ben Walton, owner, Ben's Canteen
  • Nick Fox, co-owner, Renaissance Pubs

    “There’s no question that your report is far more useful, detailed and thorough than the ones we get from our mystery diners.”

Food tours

We design restaurant and food shop / market tours for visiting chefs and restaurateurs, as well as journalists, passionate punters and corporate clients. We’ll always put together a packed itinerary, tailored to a particular area of interest to make sure you get the most out of your research time, and go home with a stack of ideas. Hey, we’ll even carry you around ourselves if you’re not too heavy. Though that will cost more.

The reason we’re so keen to show you around is that we love nothing better than a good neighbourhood food crawl. Read about our latest adventures in London food here. And marvel at our greed.

PS. We also cover Whitstable if you want to take it to the seaside.

  • “2forks saved us hours and hours of googling and made our time in London more effective. To get this much inspiration in a single trip is priceless. We’ll definitely be using their services again.”

Food content

We create short- and long-form food content for social media, web and print. As journalists and editors, we have been generating and executing relevant and exciting editorial ideas – both online and on paper – for over 20 years, so our content is built to engage. We also have the commercial awareness and industry contacts that come with senior editorial roles. To see us in action, check out 2Forks’ global food chat for Viber .

We work closely with restaurants and venue clients to improve written communications. So if your restaurant menu needs a polish, your website copy could be sharper, or you’d like help communicating events packages to corporate clients, give 2Forks a shout. We’ll make sure you’re getting your message across, and we won’t blow a smoking crater in your budgets either.
