Valentine’s Day at SushiSamba and the Story of My Engagement Ring

Did I ever tell you the story of my engagement ring? And how I didn’t actually receive it until three months after we were engaged? The night Mr S finally put it on my finger, we went to celebrate at SushiSamba, back when it had just opened. No, I didn’t think I’d told you. So… Read more »

Well actually is it that too… located on Connaught Street and framed in wisteria, Saint Aymes is quite possibly the most Instagrammable place in London.  Quite simply the super… Read more »

Early Valentine’s Day at Corinthia Hotel London

I’m a strong believer that couples should have multiple honeymoons per year, so why not multiple Valentine’s Days too? It’s not everyone’s favourite day of the year but personally I love an excuse to buy Mr S a cute card, prepare him some heart shaped toast and head out for a romantic dinner.

A Trip Home and Lunch at Hawkyns by Atul Kochhar at The Crown Inn, Old Amersham

Isn’t there something so wonderfully nostalgic about returning home? Getting on the train you always used to get, passing by where you went to school, your favourite restaurant as a kid, and that old pub that you always used to go to on Friday night?

A Sunday Roast at The Stoke House, Victoria

The new Nova building in Victoria has been held up for criticism by some. But I’d like to defend the new restaurant complex, it’s not intended as a mecca for fine dining, but it’s given a great amount of choice for local residents and people working in the area.

All Aboard Darcie and May Green, A Brightly Coloured Restaurant on a Barge

I’m a huge fan of the Daisy Green Collection – a group of restaurants that serves perfect simple food that is just packed with flavour in a relaxed atmosphere that is also beautiful.
