Well there is light at the end of the tunnel with the launch of SUPPER, the first ever Michelin starred delivery service. State of the art Japanese bikes will weave their way through traffic, ensuring faster delivery times plus (and most importantly) a great deal of research and expense has been made to ensure […]

Women don your pearls and fur (of the faux kind of course) stoles, men slick back your hair and grab your braces  need inspiration then look to Downton Abbey- early series of course, Brideshead Revisited and […]

Private Dining At Percy & Founders

A meme recently circulated around Twitter that was a mock-inspirational quote. It read ‘love yourself like Kanye loves himself, believe in yourself like Kanye believes in himself.’ This stellar quote has really inspired us in the office this week and let me tell you one thing readers, Kanye definitely considers himself too important to dine among peasants. This is why the only way to eat out now is to do so in a private dining room and Percy & Founders has a brand spanking new one that is sure to suit your dining needs. Named ‘Percy’s Den’, but sadly lacking […]
