London’s Most Instagrammable Terrace Gets A Makeover

As sunnier climes creep up to finally drench London in a bit of well-deserved sunshine, we’re all hands on deck when it comes to the idea of a terrific terrace and a tantalising tipple. And, pandering to our post-work aperitif and glass-clinking dreams is the much-adored Dalloway Terrace; a venue that loves to dabble in a bit of flora and fauna to reflect the changing of the seasons and has been coined as “one of London’s most Instagrammable restaurants,” by Vogue! Recently, they played upon the theme of Leonard Woolf’s book, village in the jungle. Offering up a ‘Jungle Lunch’ menu set […]

8 Courtyards To Cool Down In This Summer

There’s little more magical than a courtyard, a private space hidden deep within a building only accessible to an exclusive few. Think Oxbridge Colleges, Roman villas, Royal Palaces; that kind of thing. Plus, thankfully, lots of our favourite hotels and restaurants. And in the summer months, there’s little better way to enjoy the summer sun than in a hidden courtyard away from the bustling crowds.

Is This London’s Poshest Rooftop Bar?

There are a number of places that VVIPs head to when they jet into London; maybe it’s TV studios, rounds of interviews at the BBC, a quick gig at the O2, papped stumbling out of Mahiki or The Groucho. But regardless, there’s one constant: mega suites. You or I may think that a hotel’s luxurious when there’s posh soaps to steal, when there’s a bottle of bubbles waiting or when the adult channels aren’t disabled. No, a hotel room’s smart when it’s bigger than your house. When everything (except maybe the bed) is made from marble and you’ve a butler […]

Wimbledon is made for the big screen. Even people AT actual Wimbledon are huddled on Murray Mount to watch the action as it happens on a massive screen. London has gone bats (rackets, surely?) for Wimbledon and it’s only natural that we’d all want to find a few million pixels of big...

Boris Isn’t The Only Eton Mess In Town: 9 Best Places For Eton Mess

It’s jolly boating weather, so how better to celebrate than to swing together to one of these spots serving some of London’s best Eton Mess. Eton College may have given us Boris Johnson, 18 prime ministers, half the last cabinet, the archbishop of Canterbury and our future king, but let’s not hold all that against them, after all they’ve also given us one of the best puddings known to mankind. The dish, full of meringuey, strawberryish goodness is pretty much a national dessert and the perfect summer pudding. So let’s get stuck in…   Manetta’s What: Eton Less Mess Why: […]

John Lewis Oxford Street rooftop is pretty much an institution now, opening each summer with a new theme courtesy of The Gardening Society. And this summer we’re in full festival mode. No, not with knee-deep mud and copious amounts of nitrous oxide, but with Roof Fest London, and what it lacks in fertiliser and legal highs it makes up for in fun and the lack […]
