Plum and Spilt Milk: Review

It was Saturday morning, London was that horrible sort of hot, muggy temperature where the tube is a living nightmare and you lose inches just sweating your way through the crowds. For once we craved light foods rather than the usual carb heavy diet and finding ourselves in need of something to fuel our productive day of lying in Green Park, we headed to Plum and Spilt Milk, located inside the Great Northern Hotel, having heard they recently launched a new healthy breakfast menu. Inside it is beautifully elegant, dark blue walls, wooden panelling, high ceilings, hanging lights and simple […]

Harrods’ Georgian restaurant

This Friday Harrods will unveil an elegant refurbishment of its The Georgian restaurant in a collaboration with interior designer Christopher Guy – plus a brand new afternoon tea menu to celebrate. The Georgian first opened in 1913 as “a Rendez-Vous of Fashion and Luxury” and Guy who remembers dining there as a child, sought inspiration from the elegance of the 1920s and 1930s. Fusing modernism with classicism, he has produced some 500 bespoke designed pieces including carved wood silver leafed panels to reproduce the Harrods façade as well as mosaic features with over 130,000 individual tiles! As for the new […]

Brew Review

Brew is a chain of cafés serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with locations in Wimbledon, Battersea and more recently, Wandsworth. The more travelled amongst you may have even seen them in Melbourne, San Francisco and LA – this Brew gets around. With Brew you can banish the thought of lowly cereal for breakfast with their much more appealing options of Blueberry […]
