One thought on “The Kitchin

  1. Hi there

    How are you? I hope that the weather with you is good and you are enjoying the summer.

    I work for Square Meal, a restaurant review directory based in London. I just came across your blog and really liked it. I see that you do some great restaurant review blog posts and wondered if you’d be interested in linking them to Square Meal? We are really trying to increase our reviews to further afield, including Edinburgh. We would love to see your blogs on – please see an example here:

    I do hope that you are interested and look forward to hearing from you

    With best wishes
