Posh Picnics: 15 Places Whacking Out The Wicker

Let’s face it, the jubilant thoughts surrounding a picnic after often quashed by the fact that you have to pack it yourself. The sandwiches always end up soggy, the ice always melts out of its packet – probably the reason the sandwiches get soggy – and a juice carton always bursts at some point or another. So, why not have a posh picnic? Let someone else do it for you (for the tune of £1000 if you’re Corrigan’s in Mayfair). And embrace the sunnier climes whilst they last! So, treat yourself! Pop some fizz open at one of London’s various […]

Veggies, Listen Up! There’s A New Bottomless Brunch In Town

When you get to spend one of the summer’s warmest Sunday afternoons (this year!) sipping on unlimited Bellini’s, you know you’re in for a good’un.

Where Can I Go To Play Tennis On Grass?

Lots of things make Wimbledon special. The strawberries and cream, Henman Hill or Murray Mount (delete depending how old you are), the fact that it’s in London, we could go on. But for the players, the  big distinction besides the prestige is that the courts are grass. Most of us only play tennis on hard courts, they’re cheap to build and maintain and they’re the most widely available to rank amateurs like me and, probably, you. Fewer of us have the opportunity to regularly play on grass courts, a type of tennis that’s a lot faster, less predictable and, let’s […]

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: […]
