Sunny Madrid Reunion

It’s that time of year again when myself and old uni housemates rendezvous for a long weekend, this time our choice of location was beautiful Madrid. Having experienced Barcelona last year and hearing great things about Madrid we couldn’t wait. Continue reading “Sunny Madrid Reunion”


Arbutus, Soho

Arbutus is a hidden gem within Soho that was opened in 2006 by Anthony Demetre and Will Smith. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and decor. You wouldn’t know they received one michelin star in 2007 until you see the artistic plates and good service. Continue reading “Arbutus, Soho”

Congratulatory Meal at Massimo, Corinthia Hotel

I’ve no doubt already mentioned this but Lawrence recently passed a very important career exam so it was time to celebrate with the family. We were booked in for Massimo at The Corinthia Hotel. The Hotel itself is beautiful situated right on the Thames at Embankment. Lawrence’s parents have previously spent New Years Eve here and said it had spectacular views, especially as the road was closed for guests only, sounds splendid!

Wowed in A Simple Space

Wonder how many people go to the ‘wrong’ place! Continue reading “Sex shop eating at La Bodega Negra”

Home House – Regal Member’s Club

Due to Lawrence having recently received some very good news I popped over to Marylebone way to celebrate with his colleagues in their local pub. After a few drinks two familiar faces walked into the pub, James and Luke, old work colleagues who I haven’t seen for years. Continue reading “Home House – Regal Member’s Club”

Queenswood Reunion in Battersea Square

I was lucky enough to go a wonderful school in Hertfordshire which has led to the blossoming of friendships which are now over 15 years old but yet still standing strong. A few months ago I spotted the opening of a new restaurant in Battersea Square called ‘Queenswood‘. Perfect excuse for us OQs to reunite for a catch up over good food and wine. Continue reading “Queenswood Reunion in Battersea Square”

Ordering in the digital era – Rex and Mariano

Having recently read about a wonderful seafood restaurant down the road from work it was only polite we pop in to give it a try. Rex & Mariano are the duo behind the wonderful steak restaurant Goodman and Burger & Lobster and they’ve now brought a fresh new seafood restaurant to the heart of Soho.
