The Dining Room
Roux at Parliament Square
If you manage to get a table at Roux at Parliament Square, you’re in for a treat.
After entering what looks like a lavish private house, minutes away from Trafalgar Square, you’ll then be ushered into a spacious and elegant dining room. Here, the first thing to notice is that the tables are all considerably far from each other – a real perk (especially if you are there for a romantic date) that is now extremely hard to get in a busy city like London.
Needless to say, the service is impeccable and only topped by the delightful food created by head chef Steve Groves. The menu celebrates tradition, elevating the classics with a modern twist and always keeping local produce in mind.
With such an incredible menu, what’s the best thing to order? At Roux at Parliament Square, you will be presented with the tastiest celeriac, incredible veal cannelloni and an award-winning suckling pig with Jerusalem artichoke but, whatever you choose, it’s impossible to go wrong.

The May Fair Kitchen
Tucked just behind Kingly Street in Soho, The Court is the swanky new private members club to be seen at.
Steeped in history, The Court was originally the legendary night club, the Bag O’Nails, favoured by artists like Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the 1960’s.
Following a major refurb, the club relaunched earlier this year, with a spectacular bar and restaurant - beautifully decked out with extremely cool artworks by revered New York street artist, Bradley Theodore.
The food is divine, which with Michelin Star chef Tom Sellers as consultant chef, is nothing less than we would expect. What’s more, you can enjoy live piano and singing while you dine.
