Where to grab a bite after a London Walk?
I've asked my London Walks colleagues to chip in their suggestions and I'll share them here regularly on The Daily Constitutional.
The Rules: All "reviews" were conducted anonymously and we paid our way. No kick-backs, no payola, no deals: these are the places that we London Walks guides - and London Walkers – choose when eating and drinking out and about in London. No buckshee burritos, nary a gratis granola bar was received in exchange for these recommendations.
And I promise never to use the word "eaterie". Seriously: have you EVER heard anyone SAY the word eaterie?
The Criteria: As well as the one-offs, the unique cafes, bars and stalls that make London so special, I'll be featuring reliable chains along the way. They have to be in London and within five minutes of the end of a London Walks tour.
I hope you enjoy them.
Have your say: As usual we'd like to hear from you – drop us a line with your own London foodie (and drinkie) tips.
Buon Appetito!
A.S-G London, May 2016

Okay, this one is way off the beaten track in terms of being handy for the end of a London Walks tour… but it's well worth a visit nonetheless.
I fell in love with Severndroog Castle about 10 years ago when I began my first journey around the Capital Ring orbital walking route.
It was a small, near-derelict castle atop Shooter's Hill in southeast London in the middle of Oxleas Wood. 
A Gothic-style folly by 18th Century architect Richard Jupp, it was made to commemorate Commodore Sir William James and his sacking of the island fortress of Suvarnadurg on the western coast of India in 1755. The castle – 63 feet high –  was commissioned by his widow Lady James of Eltham.
I loved the stark loneliness of the place immediately, especially in midwinter on a midweek day…

I visited again last Saturday to find the place transformed.

Volunteers now facilitate access to the tower on Thursdays, Fridays & Sundays allowing us views of seven different distant counties on a clear day. And a most excellent tea shop – The Castlewood Tea Room – provides a wonderful rest-and-be-thankful for those of us who love to tramp the Capital Ring (I'm on my fourth time around, this time with my 9-year-old daughter Isobella in tow.
