I’m a sucker for a grand hotel and an elegant afternoon tea so I was excited to experience The Savoy post renovation. In a city of many impressive and legendary hotels The Savoy stands out. The tea parlour is one of its highlights and the afternoon tea up there [...]

There’s always another hotel to check out in London and St. John is a little charmer. Superbly located smack bang in the middle of the West End and in an adorable little building, the rooms are wee but nicely designed and the ground floor cafe’s a great spot for [...]

They’ve been shucking oysters and stacking shellfish over ice into platters of “fruits de mer” at Brasserie Terminus Nord since 1925. This Paris brasserie is still superb and the best news, it is bang opposite the Eurostar terminal.
