a cheeky lunch at Galvin Brasserie De Luxe

Since it’s opening, I’d been desperate to try the Galvin Brasserie De Luxe, part of the recent and extensive refurb at the Waldorf Caledonian Hotel, (especially with chef Craig Sandle at the helm – my mouth waters just recalling an amazing day foraging with him in Perthshire and the delicious al fresco lunch he prepared). Along with […]

99 Hanover Street’s 99p Lunch

I’ve seen the flyers for 99 Hanover Street’s 99p lunch but never tried it so when ‘Texan Lassie’ suggested it this week I thought it’d be a great one to review. Whilst waiting for TL to arrive (she was delayed by the Pope mobile, or the photographing of…) I was more than happy to let […]
