Richard Corrigan Opens Dickie’s Bar

If you were going to open a new bar then you’d want to get the best of the best on board – it’s not the time for half measures. You’d want to get someone like Gregory Buda from The Dead Rabbit, New York (voted the World’s Best Bar in the World’s 50 Best 2016) or someone like Richard Ryan founder of Drinksology.

The Gladwin Brothers Launch Weekly Farmers Market

We love a market. Food market, vintage market, night market – we’re not fussy but there’s just something about taking our shopping outdoors that makes the experience so much better than a soulless, overly air conditioned shop. You get up close and personal with the sellers, who have often made/crafted/sourced their wares themselves and get the amazing opportunity to learn about the origins of what you’re buying in a pretty unbeatable way. A handful of restaurants come close to the market experience, creating their menus around seasonal produce and doing their best to translate this to the customer through informative […]

Launching on the 10th June, at The Soho Hotel, the G & Tea afternoon tea makes revolves around Isle of Harris Gin, which is distilled, bottled and labelled by hand in Tarbert. It also plays on the island’s connection with the sea and its produce. As well as traditional scones and […]
