“Afternoon Tea at Claridge’s Hotel, observing our nation’s culinary heritage for the best part of 150 years. For a century or more, our Executive Chefs have remained faithful to the classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones served warm, and sweet pastries. Our ingredients are painstakingly sourced, skilfully prepared and served fresh each day. The centrepiece of afternoon tea is, of course, the drink itself. Our wonderful tea connoisseur, Henrietta Lovell, has scoured the world to bring us delicious tea from small, little known producers from the four corners of the world. Working hand in hand with our Executive Chef, Martyn Nail.”
“Speed boat up the Thames to see the Thames Barrier. Great fun on a sunny day. Set off from outside Big Ben and Parliament.”
“Bermondsey Street is hardly short of places to eat. Here you can get great Pizza. The proprietors are long-time local artisan bakers from Italian decent, whose ovens are housed right across the road. Naturally, the bakery supplies Via Bermondsey with fresh bread and pastry, and the seriously good dough for their seriously proper pizzas, made according to time-honoured tradition the Neapolitan way. Many will dine here simply for the classic pizza, emerging from the oven with the charred, puffy crust that is the mark of the real Neapolitan pie. However, Via Bermondsey is more distinctly a continental European-influenced eatery with a wide ranging quality offering chalked up on the menu”
“Duck under the arches behind Maltby Street and you'll arrive at Druid Street, a much more rough-and-ready street-food market. On this stretch, signs are few and far between so it helps to follow your nose. Pojang serves up authentic Korean street-food, Decatur has the best oyster po boys and Rock My Bowl's smoothie bowls manage to make breakfast genuinely exciting. The revolving weekly stalls mean you'll find new vendors every time. On our last visit we discovered Jake's Soul Spread selling incredible jams on their Druid Street debut. The treacle-thick salted butter with honey even comes with a soul and funk breakfast soundtrack.”
