Diogenes The Dog is in Elephant and Castle, which is a combination of animals you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see in south London. You’ll want to check out this wine bar and café though, as it’s one of the most comfortable we’ve been to in London. It specialises in smaller producers, and the staff can tell you as much or as little as you want to know. Also, the snacks - from terrine of the week to burratina - are excellent and fairly reasonably priced.

Hampers, cookbooks, ceramics, and more. Because socks just aren’t going to cut it this year.
