Here are two dates for your diary that we say you should take advantage of rather than ignore. Firstly the 17th January – supposedly the day we all ditch our New Year’s resolutions – and secondly, the 18th January, aka Blue Monday – the day the January blues really hit home.
However, Villandry is on a mission to make January that bit better for you, with a whole host of offers at both their Great Portland Street and St James’s venues. Book a table at either venue after 6pm and you get a rather nice 25% off your bill, which should keep your bank balance happy and get those friends who are dubious about spending money out of their house. If you have had enough of Dry January then you’ll be pleased to hear that their cocktail happy hour doesn’t just last an hour (because where’s the fun in that?) and instead lasts from 5pm – 8pm.
If you are still feeling virtuous or need some extra nourishment then over at St James’s they have new freshly squeezed juices and at Great Portland Street you can pick up a juice loyalty card, entitling you to complimentary juices on your return. And finally, if you find yourself in a daily battle getting yourself out of bed – you have to go to work but your bed is so cosy – then let coffee be your calling. At Great Portland Street they’ll be serving up small coffees for £1.50 and large coffees for £1.75 pre-10am.
Thank you Villandry for getting us through this bleak time of the year.
