Michael Nadra

This Chocolate Week will see London throwing up all sorts of cannot-refuse surprises. But have you heard about what's happening at Michael Nadra? At both restaurants (one in Primrose Hill, one in Chiswick), there are a handful of limited edition (naturally…) chocolate creations waiting for you.  Try the Passion fruit chocolate fondant with basil and white chocolate ice cream, or what about, the Windsor Estate fallow venison with root vegetable rosti, cavolo nero and chocolate sauce? There's also a Chocolate Caramel Martini (pictured) – but that's only if you feel you can squeeze in any more chocolate post-meal.  Michael Nadra, […]

Downton Abbey at Grosvenor House

But to heighten your viewing enjoyment a little more, Grosvenor House has put on a lovely spead worthy of the Dowager Countess of Grantham's compliments. It's an afternoon tea that is currently bewitching all Downton fans – and it still has months and months to run.

We love Victoria Sponge

'We Love Victoria Sponge' is the interesting – and rather delicious – afternoon tea choice at The National Cafe, the Restaurant at the Royal Academy and The National Dining Rooms at the moment. We thought you'd like to know.  There's tea for two and a delectable heart-shaped Victoria sponge cake to share for a cool £10, between 3 and 5pm every day at the Peyton and Byrne restaurants. If you like the cake, don't forget to check out Peyton and Byrne's bakeries sitatuated around London (Kew, St Pancras, etc), as there's always a stomach-rumbling array of hot pies, biscuits, tarts […]
