Whether you’re all loved up or a superbly happy singleton with a group of friends, Valentine ’s Day has so much on offer. We have helped put together a small guide to show you some of the best “love bites” that London has up for grabs this Valentine ’s Day!
This restaurant is considered one of the last bastions of ‘old Soho’ and since 1986, Andrew Edmunds wine bar-come-bistro was doing shabby chic long before it became common currency. However, even then, it has had everyone hooked on its rustic charms. A cosy atmospheric restaurant with candlelit tables has a well-deserved reputation for romance!
If you’re going with your other half or with all your girls, Bob Bob Ricard has to be one of the favorite iconic Soho Restaurants for everyone. The Blue Dining Room is a must to see… the award-winning interior, designed by David Collins, takes its inspiration from the Orient Express. This restaurant everyone should try once whether it’s for valentines or not. With the glitzy roaring twenties décor, the luxury Anglo-Russian menu and the famous buzzers ‘press for champagne’ at every table will surely win over any prospective suitor!
It doesn’t get more romantic than this. This French restaurant is an oasis of calm in the heart of Covent Garden. Take your pick to sit yourself down in the wood panelled restaurant or the atmospheric conservatory that is bedecked in a forest of white blossoms with fairy lights, candles, and a warm log fire slowly crackling away in the background. Voted one of the world’s most romantic restaurants this is defiantly one to put on the top of your list.
Sketch, a quirky modern French restaurant in Mayfair, based in an 18th Century townhouse tea room that transforms itself into a cocktail lounge every evening, will be your destination for imaginative food, art and music. The pink interior creates a unique backdrop for almost edge to edge (of the artist David Shirley’s a Turner Prize winner) funny and often satirical childlike drawings. It is recognised as one of the best dining experiences of the West End or maybe just a brief dalliance for a Valentines Afternoon Tea washed down with a complimentary glass of Champagne!
Feast your eyes on an array of curiosity while sipping your favourite cocktails. With walls covered with hunting rifles, stuffed animals, weathered flags, and maps it’s hard not to let your imagination run wild. If that isn’t your cup of tea why not try their Tipsy Tea. With a unique selection of exquisite champagne and gin teas and cakes, prepare for an indulgent afternoon.
