The pop up will be a full sensory experience from the food, which will be a specially prepared menu of the UK’s most beloved dishes, to the entertainment which will include celebrity guests appearances – Prince Harry perhaps?? Bit of a long shot but you never […]

The Goring: Review

Since its opening in 1910 (when the price of  a room was just 7s 6d, the equivalent of 37p!), The Goring has become a quintessential part of luxury London. The family run hotel has continually been named as the top hotel in London and indeed in Europe. Having become synonymous with the Royal family, in 2010 it was granted a Royal Warrant for Hospitality Services by Her Majesty The Queen. But now they have something new to celebrate, the arrival of new chef Shay Cooper whose aim is to take the menu to the next level and so The Handbook […]

Edible Cinema Does Romeo and Juliet

This May will see the forces of Edible Cinema and Bombay Sapphire combine to produce one truly unique screening of Baz Luhrman’s Romeo and Juliet.  Working on the principle of enhancing the sights and sounds of the film by turning it into an edible adventure, guests will be treated to small mouthfuls throughout to really experience the action. On entering they will be split into Montagu’s or Capulets with a mellow rivalry dictated by two different cocktails spun with Bombay Sapphire and fresh  ingredients. Both drinks have an overriding citrus heart which highlights that despite their differences underneath it all, […]

Sleep Menu at The Corinthia

We’ve all been guilty of sacrificing a bit of sleep for a few extra hour's work or for the even worthier cause of a few extra gin and tonics with friends, but we often forget the power of a full eight hour's nod. However, people who definitely appreciate this are the team at The Corinthia Hotel who will be launching a little project called ‘The Sleep Menu’ this month. Aiming to combat long working hours and sky high caffiene consumption with a specially designed meal plan, hotel guests and visiting diners are guaranteed to finish with a fantastic snooze.

Cheyne Walk Brasserie Afternoon Tea

Chelsea favourite, Cheyne Walk Brasserie, has recently joined the afternoon tea brigade and so The Handbook went down to check it out. And, well, we were expecting a little bit more. Whilst the restaurant has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, upstairs was a little more subdued – it had the air of a waiting room – carpeted floor, a few sofas around small low tables and most importantly seeing as there were only four of us in there, no music or back ground noise, just an odd ticking that made it sound like it was raining heavily outside. But in true […]
