INFORMATION :

  • Experience London Above and Below
    "With limited time, we chose to experience London through two different dining experiences – one nine stories above the ground with a view of the all-encompassing London skyline and one in a subterranean basement with no view at all.
    Both meals conveyed the kind of magic that you can only experience in London."
