SquareMeal Review of Look Mum, No Hands Clerkenwell

The name is every kid’s proud boast when they’ve mastered two wheels – ‘look mum, no hands!’ Bikes double as art in this agreeably laid-back café-bar, and the venue hosts cycling-related workshops – plus the odd comedy night. Watch as the latest Euro racing is beamed in live, or bypass the action and head for the pretty courtyard. To drink, perhaps a glass of Chardonnay, a bottle of Slag (the house beer) or a smoothie – for those in charge of their own set of drop handlebars. Solid fuel comes from sandwiches, pies, stews, cakes and pastries – although the hottest ticket is breakfast (try the Stornoway black-pudding fry-up or thyme-roasted mushrooms on sourdough toast). True to the spirit of Boris Johnson’s London, staff will fix machines while their owners have a caffeine fix before getting back in the saddle.

Great, cool place. I've just got a bike and I work next door. I think I'll be spending more time here!
