Grandmothers, mothers, grandads and daughters came from far and wide, Zurich, Seven Oaks, Thanet and Clerkenwell, brought their sewing projects, darned socks, quaffed cocktails in tea cups (gin and raspberry, vodka and cucumber) on this summer's night High Tea.

Next and last event of the summer: Josie Long Comedy night at the Underground Restaurant, with a Doctor Who themed menu to celebrate 50 years of the programme. Also featuring the witty work of Viv Groskop. Josie's line up of comediens will be revealed soon. Four course menu, tickets £40, book here:


  1. Lovely evening.
    Good food and good company.
    Best regards


  2. Looks like I missed a wonderful event!

  3. Blimey, summer's only just started (or not yet, depending on how you count it), and you're already advertising the last event! ]

    Doctor Who sounds fun, will it be fish fingers and custard?

    ps love the pictures, everything looks gorgeous

  4. Sarah: deffo fish fingers and custard!
    Last event unless I get a last minute inspiration... but I have a book to write this summer.
    Thanks for the comments everybody, it was a pleasure to do


I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
