It’s basically impossible to get any work done in Shepherd’s Bush without asking one of the following questions: When did Ricky Martin start making music again? Where did all these children come from? And, At what point did human beings start using Primark bags as paper nunchucks? But Flying Horse Coffee in the old BBC Television Centre is actually a pretty peaceful place to send some emails, get a little life admin done, or contemplate how they’re managing to keep so many hanging plants alive. The coffee here won’t blow you away, but the wifi is fast and there are plenty of pastries and baked goods to choose from come lunchtime.
