Taking it Easy with an Overnight Spa Break in Bath

Easter week, Kemey and I made a quick overnight trip to Bath for a bit of rest and relaxation with a dash of history and scaled down but nonetheless urban ease. Both of us had been to Bath before but ages ago and not together. We had so much fun during our brief stay in this compact and attractive city. It’s a great place for couples and super easy to get to from London. Of course, more time to explore Bath and the bucolic countryside nearby would have been ideal, but our overnight visit proved to be an amply replenishing pause before having to head back to the London grind.

Tredwell’s by Marcus Wareing

Often before heading to a restaurant for the first time I’ll have a look online at existing reviews about the place to know what to keep an eye out for and maybe to avoid. For my Sunday lunch visit to Marcus Wareing’s “modern British” Tredwell’s, I should have just avoided reading the reviews all together and let my gut (which is now a good bit larger after my Tredwell’s meal) guide me in the right direction.

A Myriad of Marks: Dragica Carlin at Lollipop Gallery 
by +Madison Salters 

Bubbles and bulk white walls greeted me, as The Lollipop Gallery provided its typical minimalist space to showcase the art. Set across two floors of industrialist space with plank wooden floors and the smell of sawdust, the intimate gallery has the feel of wandering into a painter’s study, rather than an exhibition of work. That personal tone was further set by there being no plaquards asride any of Carlin’s pieces, no Titles or information on mediums, a rare treat that invited guests to use their senses to understand and analyse the abstract works.

Meaty New “Bunsmiths” BBQ Menu at Sebright Arms: Oh Hell Yes!

Pub grub never looked so mouthwateringly mountainous! A new (not pop-up) menu at Sebright Arms pub off Hackney Road brings some of the finest “low and slow BBQ cooked meat served fresh and fast in delicious buns” to the table to be washed down with something sudsy from one of London’s more carefully considered lists of craft and quality beers.

Lunch at The Pig

Oh yes (and oink), I finally made it down to the fabled Pig (the original one in The New Forest) for a supremely satisfying early spring lunch and a quick and easy countryside break from London.

Give Me Space: Stowing (It) Away

Got a gap year coming up? Longing for a long holiday abroad? Or maybe you’ve got guests coming to visit and you need to make some room for them? Whatever your particular travel-related situation, finding a short, convenient and affordable way to stow your stuff while you head off on an adventure (or when BFF adventurers beckon at your door) can sometimes mean all the difference between being a carefree wanderer or gracious host and having to stay put and lonely at home.

I’m trying out new urban storage service SpaceWays and sharing my thoughts about the service with you. I have a few boxes of my things in storage with SpaceWays at the moment And yep, I’m about to go on a press trip soon actually. So, clearing space for my girlfriend while I’m gone is really coming in handy.

Moët & Chandon: The Champagne Region Comes to Londontown
by +Madison Salters 

Moët & Chandon is perhaps the most recognisable name in Champagne. Its impressive estate, nestled into the heart of the Champagne Region of France, produces full-bodied sips, often with bold fruity notes and a gentle finish. As of 13 April, Moët & Chandon will bring the magic of its Épernay vineyards to Southbank in London, to delight the palates and imaginations of visitors.

El Pirata of Mayfair Celebrates 20 Years Serving Authentic Tapas

Anchored for two decades in Mayfair with an admirable reputation, El Pirata has long been regarded as a regular favourite among the locals and a safe bet for out-of-towner’s seeking a more than decent meal. Slow sailing me, I’ve intended to visit this popular tapas bar for ages but only recently set a course in its direction, where I discovered a menu full of treasured Spanish dishes. Is El Pirata worth considering for your next port of call? Aye, cap’n.

The Real Greek Soho? It’s Real Good!

Maybe it’s just been a long time since I last visited one of the eight or so Real Greek restaurants around town, or perhaps these group of all rounder Eastern Mediterranean-style taverns has recently upped its game. Whatever the case (and my hunch is that the answer probably a mix of both), my Friday night dinner at its newly opened Berwick Street outpost a few weeks back was a surprisingly tasty treat. I’d be pleased to pay a repeat visit to anytime and reckon The Real Greek Soho is a smart option in a nifty location for a quick bite or full on feast.

As a blogger, editor and journalist, I've had the pleasure of working alongside Fourteen Ten for a number of years now. Very early in this relationship it became clear to me that they were top of the field and would provide their clients with thorough and quality service while ensuring media contacts like me were provided with appropriate and relevant materials for coverage.
