Farm Girl Brunch Review

We have wanted to visit farm girl for so so so long ever since we spied some lovely pictures on Instagram. What blogger doesn’t want to visit Farm Girl? The menu is so instagram!

A couple of weeks ago we tried to go to the one in Notting Hill but the queue was ridiculously long so we gave up and decided it wasn’t meant to be.

After a photo shoot in Chelsea we thought it was the perfect opportunity to try farm girl in Chelsea instead. We looked on the map and it looked kinda far out and a bit of a walk from any station so figured it would not be as busy as Notting Hill.

Farm Girl in Chelsea is about a 30 min walk from Sloane square and 15 minute walk from Gloucester Road, so be prepared for a walk. However both walks are beautiful, we did both, we walked from Sloane Square to Farm Girl along the kings road, wishing we were rich enough to afford to buy our clothes and Home wear from the gorgeous shops.

We wandered back to Gloucester Road after we had finished. This walk (we followed google maps!) took us down some stunning streets with beautiful houses and the fact that it was a gorgeous winters day also helped.

We arrived at Farm Girl and we were seated instantly. We were sat slap bang in the middle of the restaurant kinda in the isle and given menus. Then a very friendly waiter came and took our drinks order. The drinks menu alone is massive, there’s like and entire A4 page dedicated to the many drinks that Farm Girl offer.

We knew we wanted to be adventurous and try something new, but we also knew that we didn’t want a matcha latte as the last one we tried was gross (not from farm girl might we add!).

We asked our waiter to recommend some drinks and quizzed him about a number of the different options. We told him about our past experience with matcha so he suggested we try the charcoal one as he really liked it, but the past experience really put us off. We then spied flavoured lattes and the waiter gave us an excellent description of the flavour so we decided to go for one rose latte and one lavender latte so we could share.

The way these drinks are made is that the hot water used is infused with either rose or lavender to give the coffee a subtle flavour and we could certainly get the subtle taste and both were surprisingly yummy. Rach preferred the lavender one and Annie preferred the rose one so that worked out well. The lattes cost £3.60 each so quite a standard price for a coffee in London and these did come with rose petals in!

For the main we didn’t know what to order but like we do every time we go for brunch we become nosy and started to look at the dishes coming out the kitchen and being served to other guests to help us make a decision.

In the end, Rach opted for the Avocado Toast which was served with lemon juice, fresh coriander and a sprinkle of pomegranate served on sourdough toast. There was also the option to add a poached egg for an additional £2 but Rach didn’t. The dish cost £8 and was relatively small and not the most filling especially as we have been elsewhere and got much bigger portions. That being said the added pomegranate was a great addition and really make the dish. We probably wouldn’t opt for this if we went back again purely down to the portion size.

Annie went for the Oven Baker Aubergine dish which was baked in a tomato and chickpea sauce with a mint and tahini yogurt dressing served with sourdough bread. There was also the option to add a poached egg for £2 but Annie also didn’t bother. The dish cost £9 which was fairy priced. The dish was incredibly tasty and there were lots of delicious flavours coming through, we would definitely recommend this dish if you visit.

Now we want to end this post on saying how exceptional the service was here at the Chelsea branch of farm girl. All the staff were so passionate about their jobs and were very knowledgeable. The staff were just so friendly and took so much care in ensuring all the guests were happy. We particularly loved how the staff crouched next to the table to be on the same level or sat on a spare chair to take your order or answer any questions.

In addition we didn’t like being sat in the isle as we kept getting knocked and as a spare table came free at the back of the restaurant the staff were more than happy to move us there. They carried everything across for us and kept making sure we were happy- it has to be said as well the lighting was SO much better as the free table was in natural lighting (you have got to think about these things)!

We were quite surprised when we took a trip to the toilet to find there was only one toilet, it was up the top of a staircase and logistically getting in and out of it whilst someone else was waiting was interesting. That being said it was clean and they replenished the hand towels frequently. We loved the staircase leading up to the toilet and the actual toilet itself was decorated charmingly.

Farm girl Chelsea has made a lasting impression on us, and we will certainly recommend this place for food and drinks to everyone – thank you

Lonely London: The Best Solo Attractions On Offer

Although there are two of us we also like to be very independent, we love travelling on our own, shopping on our own and going on long walks on our own, you get the gist we are still very independent. We absolutely love our own company and we are defiantly not the kinda people who are embarrassed to do anything on our own.

Many people who visit London will often visit on their own, and although it’s very very easy to find somewhere to stay in London it may not seem as easy to find things to do on your own. So to help you out with this we have compiled a short list of things to do when visiting London exploring some of the best solo activities in the heart of where we call home, London.

Theatre- Finding the perfect activity when you’re on your own in a new city is always a challenge. In a place like London, though, you need only think of what the place is famous for to be able to start coming up with some ideas. Having a long history in the field of performing arts, theatre can be one of the greatest choices in this situation. Not only will you get the chance to enjoy some of what London is known for, but you will get to do it in a way which doesn’t require someone else to make it fun. Most people will enjoy a play once they get into it.

History- Being an incredibly old place, visiting London to soak up some history is always a pleasure, even when you’re by yourself. Museums are the perfect place to go when you’re looking to burn some time enjoying a slice of the past. London is packed with different options, from the Natural History Museum to the numerous heritage centers found around the city. This sort of activity will be perfect when the weather is bad outside.

Artwork- History might feel a little bit too dry for your tastes during a break, and something lighter might be on the cards. For similar reasons to visiting museums, going to art galleries is a great way to learn about a place and the people who live there. London is home to loads of important galleries, and is a great place to learn about art from across loads of different eras. These are some of the best value attractions London has to offer, giving you hours of entertainment for nearly nothing.

Sightseeing- A lot of people will go to cities like London simply to see what’s they have to offer in regards to sights. Websites like vlondoncity are some of the best to help you with this, giving you the chance to learn loads about the place before you get there. From Big Ben to Windsor Castle, you have plenty to explore on your journey to London.

Fitness- If you are into fitness we would definitely recommend trying out some of the fitness classes that are available in London! There are so many and if you type #londonfitness into Instagram you are bound to find one that you like. There are also lots of free running clubs, running is a great way to explore the city, it’s one of our favourite things to do when visiting a new city.

Coffee & Brunch- London’s brunch scene is booming so what better way to spend your morning. There are so many amazing brunch spots you are bound to stumble across a few on your travels. Have a coffee stop in the afternoon and make sure you go to an independent coffee shop the coffee always tastes SO much better!

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start looking into ways to make the most out of your next solo London trip. An adventure like this doesn’t have to be boring, and most people will be able to find loads of different activities which they will really enjoy. Of course, you won’t know until you’ve researched it, though.

Brunch Review: Parc Franglaises

We were lucky enough to be invited to Parc Franglaises one Sunday lunchtime. We had never heard of it before but we love French food and fancied a trip out of the big city so immediately accepted the invitation.

We did of course check our the Parc Franglaises Instagram and instantly fell in love with  the food they were posting. As always we also checked out Trip Advisor which got us even more excited about trying their food as all the reviews were raving about the delicatessen.

We jumped on the train at Brixton and 15 minutes later we had arrived, it’s crazy how far you can get in such a short space of time. Parc Franglaises was a 15 minute walk from the station so not far at all.

When we arrived we were greated by the two owners who told us take a seat. The cafe was buzzing full of people and if we had arrived 10 minutes later we would have struggled to get a seat which is always a good sign.

The deli was incredibly charming and we could tell it was a place the locals loved to visit everyone seemed to know of each other. The decor was enchanting and warm which we loved and it is a place we could spend hours at working away.

The menu was amazing there was so much to choose from that we both struggled to decide what to order. One of the things we loved about the deli was the fact you could see all the sandwich fillers, cold meats, salads and cheeses in the counters they all looked so fresh and delicious that is made it even harder to make a decision.

Rach went for a sausage, bacon and cheese sourdough baugette a combination she had not tried before but absolutely loved. Rach also opted for a side of potato salad an absolute favourite of hers so that went down an absolute treat. Annie went for a classic tuna and sweetcorn melt on a sourdough baguette with a side of Greek salad which were both so tasty and flavoursome.

We both agreed that the deli were incredibly generous with their portion sizes. Sometimes you can order a baguette and after a couple of bites the filling has gone but that is not the case at Parc Franglasis.

For dessert (yes of course we managed to squeeze in dessert) we had a slice of gluten free lemon cake which was one of the best gluten free cakes we have ever tried infact if they hadn’t of said we wouldnt have even known it was gluten free. We enjoyed our slice of cake over a Mocha and Hot chocoalte.

If you ever fancy a trip out of London then you should definitely visit Parc Franglaises we have our fingers crossed that they open another store slightly more central so we can visit all the time!

Brunch Review: Flight Club

I have never heard of Flight Club but when I mentioned I was going here to other people everyone seemed to know what I was talking about and all said it was really good.
Flight Club is a bar in Shoreditch and is renowned for having a number of dart boards to play darts whilst drinking.

It was a friends birthday and she had hired out an area for 2 hours which included playing darts, unlimited pizza and unlimited prosecco.

We arrived and it was a bit like going bowling you enter your name on a computer, and also take a (ugly!) picture of yourself. The computer then generates rounds and who is going to play. There are a number of different rounds and games to play varying from straight forward darts, playing in pairs or having to hit a specific target for more points.

Whilst you are playing the hostesses walk around with wooden boards of pizza that you can help yourself too. As I have a weird diet myself and a couple of others opted for gluten free pizzas so they brought us 2 pizzas of our choice to share, which were delicious!

There were also buckets filled with bottles of prosecco and jugs of orange juice too for those who wanted to make mimosas.

We all were having fun playing darts and after one hour the games ended and we were told to move to another table by the bar. Apparently in the small print when booking you only have the darts for an hour but the food and drink for 2 hours. We thought this was very cheeky, so we complained and in the end were given 3 more bottles of prosecco.

Despite this we all took advantage of the free drinks and we even ordered 2 more gluten free pizzas!!

For a celebration this is such a great idea and something different to do, and we would highly recommend it. The place is very good and there are lots of booths to be hired out, and the pizza is delicious!!

Brunch Review Chiltern Firehouse

We have wanted to visit here for a while, especially after stalking the hash tags on Instagram and seeing the most incredible pancakes and were very lucky to get a reservation here as apparently is very difficult to get a table. Our visit to Chiltern Firehouse did not disappoint and we were still dreaming and talking about the food days after!

A short walk from Baker Street on the beautiful Chiltern Street in an old fire-station is this hidden treasure of London. From the outside you wouldn’t know it was there really, apart from the porter out the front! You enter through the most amazing little gardens which have a huge fire. As it was May and kinda warm we were asked if we wanted a table outside. We declined as we thought it would be too cold, however in hindsight kind of wished we had sat outside because it was so pretty and there were heaters – guess we will have to visit again soon!


As we were a little early for our table we were asked to wait at the bar for our table. We were given a drinks menu which had most champagne on it – we strawberry and basil champagne sounded delicious!

We were shortly taken to our table and given menus to look at and asked if we wanted drinks. We both ordered iced coffees made with almond milk. The coffees arrived and boy were they strong, but amazing!


We ordered some starters/snacks to share and decided to go with the homemade sour dough and the bacon cornbread. The bacon cornbread came with the most amazing chipotle-maple butter and the sourdough came with butter. The bacon cornbread was warm and dipped in the chipotle-maple butter was a match made in heaven. We could’ve easily had one plate each rather than sharing! The butter was so good that we spread it on the sourdough bread too! Honestly, this butter was amazing and we want to return to have the starters all over again!


Now, for the main event….. of course we both ended up ordering the same! Its great that we like the same food and makes life easier but then it gives us less to write about in these posts as we both eat the same! However when there are pancakes on the menu you can guaranteed that we order them! Having said that our friend ordered the Eggs Florentine so we have a picture of those to share with you, and she said they were delicious!


These pancakes however were the fluffiest tastiest ever. We were given a stack of 3, topped with blueberries and creme fraiche and served with a jug of maple syrup. Our expectations for these pancakes were certainly met and they really did not disappoint. We also loved the fact that when the waitress came back she asked us if we wanted another jug of maple syrup, that’s never happened before at brunch!

We don’t think we will ever stop raving about this place and we would love to return soon!
