Plate Restaurant Review

Plate restaurant is located in the M by Montcalm hotel which is located just a 5 minute walk from Old Street in London. The hotel opened in 2015 and the restaurant opened last May and is absolutely gorgeous.


Plate is located on 2 floors, the ground floor is a bakery during the day and cocktail bar at night. It has comfy seats located by the windows, perfect for watching the world go by. The smell of coffee and fresh pastries hits you as you walk into the restaurant which is divine. The bakery also supplies Black Coffee (a well known coffee chain in London) with their pastries!


The main restaurant is on the mezzanine above the bakery/bar. The restaurant is spacious with floor to ceiling windows and amazing plants making it an Instagram dream. There are also lots of plants which add to the green house botanical vibe! Look at us cuties posing in front of this cute blossom tree!


The staff here are so lovely and we had the nicest waitress who was very attentive and proud to work at Plate. She always made sure we were happy with the food we had ordered which was really nice of her.

The food and beverage manager Frederick also come over to introduce himself. He gave us a bit of background on the company and their vision for the future. He also told us about their ribs night… more on that later!

The brunch menu is large and there is so much choice. In order to have bottomless prosecco for £15 you have to order 2 courses off the brunch menu, no trouble for us!!!

We decided to start with something sweet and a little lighter, these dishes were much more breakfast like. Rachel went for the ‘Pears & Cream’ which was Grilled poached pear, ricotta cheese, granola, grapes and honey this was absolutely delicious! There were so many delicious flavours we would definitely recommend!

Annie went for the berries and yoghurt which was a mixed berry compote, Greek yogurt, granola and honey! This was so delicious and the berry compote was the perfect blend of sweet and sour! We have to mention the bowls they used as well as we absolutely loved them, they reminded us of shells!

For the next course annie opted for the sourdough with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Quite often when we go for brunch they are not very generous with the salmon but here at Plate they are very generous which is fab! The plate was piled high with both scrambled egg and amazing quality smoked salmon, can I eat it all over again please!?

Rach went for the macaroni cheese which was simple but incredibly tasty and very filling! I loved the basil they had added to the mix it added tons of flavour! Would definitely recommend this dish and the portion size was huge, so big in fact it almost defeated me!

For dessert we decided to share the French toast (we were already SO FULL). This was amazing it was light fluffy and tasted kind of like brioche with a croissant texture it was the perfect way to end a delicious meal! It was served with Banana caramel, maple creme Fraiche and candied pecans.

Unlike most bottomless brunches the waitress left the bottle of prosecco by our side in an ice bucket. We loved this as it meant we could top our glasses up when we wanted to, although she was so attentive we often didn’t need to. We were offered another bottle as well which was nice but we literally couldn’t fit anything else in, we were stuffed!

No issues on the toilet front they were clean tidy! They also had elemis hand wash and hand cream which we love the smell of!

As we mentioned before Plate also offer a bottomless steak and chips on a Friday from 6-7pm for £15 and a bottomless ribs and wings on a Thursday for just £10 which runs from 6-7:30pm so you have an hour and a half to eat as much as you want.

It would be a great place to work from, which Rach took note of as she works from home! The WIFI was good as well which is a bonus and means you wouldn’t have to hotspot!

The hotel looked so beautiful we would love to stay here, maybe one day hey?

The W.B Yeats Collaborates with M.I.A

M.I.A and The W.B Yeats collaborated to celebrate chocolate week and rumour has it they will be collaborating for the rest of the year! What a fabulous idea we hear you think and you wouldn’t be wrong. Any excuse to eat chocolate and we are there, so even better when there is an entire week dedicated to chocolate.

Chocolate week was from the 13th- 21st October 2018 so if you missed it this year and you are a chocolate lover make sure you look out for it next year as so many brands get involved with it.

The W.B Yeats is a pub located just a short walk from Finsbury Park Station. They serve freshly prepared food that is of an amazing quality and everything on the menu sounded delicious. We arrived at The W.B Yeats pub at 7:30PM on Friday 19th October ready to try the menu and most importantly the M.I.A Chocolate desserts that are currently on the menu and will be until the end of the year.

We have tried M.I.A chocolate previously and absolutely loved it! You can read our blog post here all about the chocolate.

We ordered both desserts and shared of course…when do we not!

The Warm Chocolate & Caramel Tart with Coconut Cream was one of the desserts and we absolutely loved it, this dessert was Rachels favourite out of the two and she could have eaten it all over again it was so delicious. We loved the rich chocolatey taste, the warm caramel sauce and the perfectly cooked buttery pastry. The coconut cream was served on the top and it was the perfect addition!

The second dessert on the menu was a Cold Chocolate fondant with Candid Hazelnut which was also incredible, we particularly liked the crispy base (we have always loved anything with a crunchy base). The mousse was perfectly set, and we loved the taste of the chocolate powering through with every bite.

We couldn’t just visit The W.B Yeats for the desserts though, of course we went enjoyed a three course meal, how could we not when the menu sounded so divine.

We ordered a bottle Of Le Campuget Syrah Grenache which was a delicious blush wine, the type of wine we have been loving recently. it was fresh, crisp and easy to drink. Le Campuget Syrah Grenache is such a summer wine and reminds us of those light evenings sipping it in the sunshine if you cannot tell already e are trying to hold onto summer for as long as possible.

We also shared some Salamanca olives and nuts which were perfect to snack whilst we had a catch up and chose what we wanted to order.

To start we shared the Isle of Wight tomatoes & parmesan on toast which was divine and so flavoursome. We would 100% recommend this starter to anyone to visits. They were incredibly generous on the portion sizes there were so many tomatoes. We love parmesan it’s one of our favourite cheeses so of course we loved that part of the dish as well.

For mains we both went for the steak, with green sauce and onions. It was unbelievable, we wanted to eat it all over again! It was served with a side of chips and of course gravy that was poured over the top of the steak. The greens sauce had parsley in it which we absolutely loved!

Angus the manager of the pub was incredible, he looked after us all evening, you can really tell he loves his job. He explained each dish to us in detail before we tucked in which we really appreciated as its nice to know a bit of background on the dish.

It was a busy Friday evening in the pub and the atmosphere was alive, we loved the vibe. We got the feeling that most people were locals enjoying a Friday night drink and a bite to eat.

We have heard that W.B Yeats serve an incredible roast on a Sunday, its huge so make sure if you visit you are hungry! We are going to have to make a return visit to try it!

The Sipping Room In Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf at the weekend is so fantastic because its like a different world. During the week its full of all those business men and women who all probably work in finance and is so busy and non-stop. However at the weekend all these people are probs chilling on their yacht on the Thames in Marlow or enjoying a country break in the Cotswolds…… this means its nice and quiet at the weekend and the perfect place to go for food.

We think Canary Wharf looks a bit futureistic, even the train station is pretty cool and then as you come out the station all those sky rise office buildings with floor to ceiling glass. There are lots of eateries here and also lots of shops too!

The Sipping Room was our brunch spot of choice, it is located in West India Quay which is just a 5 minute walk from Canary Wharf station. The Sipping Room is a Drake and Morgan restaurant and from what we can tell it seems they offer a standard brunch menu across all their restaurants/bars.

It was mid-October on a beautiful autumn day, the sun had definitely decided to put its hat on that day!! We asked to sit outside to make the most of the glorious weather and that was no trouble at all!

There is lots to choose from on the brunch menu (which is available at the weekend from 11am – 4pm) and its very varied so everyone will be happy! There is the all day breakfast menu which includes items such as pancakes, avocado on sourdough, full works, veggie works and eggs Benedict.

There are also plates to start or share which include burrata and a meze board. For brunch you could also choose a burger or a dish from the grill. See what we mean, lots to choose from! There is also a breakfast menu (which includes boiled eggs and soldiers!) and an all day menu which includes pies!

Anyway back to what we actually ate! As it was brunch time and we hadn’t had breakfast as we had been at a gym class we opted for the brunch menu and also just because we love brunch!

Rach went for the buttermilk chicken and waffle as she has never had it before and was intrigued to see how the elements all worked together. This was served with a waffle, topped with avocado and then a buttermilk chicken breast with chilli maple syrup. The combination worked so well together, and the size of the chicken was very very generous! As I love avocado I wish there was more avocado on it!

Annie went for the avocado on sourdough but changed the poached egg for scrambled egg. The staff were more than happy to make this change which was nice! It was really tasty and the portion size was great, sourdough bread would have been better than just a slice of white but you can’t have it all!

We then enjoyed our brunch with a juice each, Rach went for sweet greens (kiwi, pineapple, cucumber, orange) which was really refreshing, we would definitely recommend!

Annie went for for L’Orange (orange, mango, avocado), I had never tried avocado in a smoothie before so I was really intrigued! It made the smoothie really creamy and the orange and mango overpowered the flavour of the avocado. Both were refreshing and delicious and made us feel all summery in the lovely sunshine.

We popped inside as this is where the toilets were located. We loved the decor of the inside there were faux fur blankets over most of the chairs and it looked like a little winter wonderland!

The bar was located at the front of the restaurant, just as you walked in the door. The staff were all incredibly friends at The Sipping Room and answered any questions we had

The toilets were very clean and there were plenty of cubicles, we love the fact Drake & Morgan have sweets in the rest rooms! This time they had a huge pot of quality streets, they really are getting into the festive spirit!

We would definitely recommend visiting! The Christmas menu looked delicious and we already have our eyes on it!

3 Lessons We Have Learnt in Three Years

So to celebrate our blog turning the grand age of 3 we decided to look back at the past 3 years and think of three things we have learnt. It’s hard to think of the most prominent things to share because we taught ourselves everything, and we have learnt A LOT!

I mean we set up our Instagram and had to learn all about the algorithm, we learnt the hard way probs as its taken us 3 years and we haven’t hit 10k yet (give us a follow if you don’t already and help us out we are less than 50 followers away eeek).

We set up our wordpress account and then decided to go self hosted, now that was a learning curve and a half! We taught ourselves how to edit photos and how to edit vlogs. We tried to learn about SEO (still struggling with that one!), and there is so much more!

So here are our main 3 lessons that we wanted to share:

1) When coming up with a name for yourself or your brand never ever use a number. A number can change you see….. when we originally started there was three of us and some of you may have followed us from the beginning when we were threebrits…… well now you probs can tell there are two of us! So this meant we had to change EVERYTHING. Our blog name and layout, our instagram, twitter and our email address. We still have to check our threebrits email address every now and then just in case someone has emailed us! So this advice is for anyone starting out, not just a blog but for anything, really think wisely about your name!

2) When taking photos take them in the SHADE, not in the direct sunshine! When we first started taking pictures we thought that we needed to find the prettiest sunniest spot. It took us a while to realise (and a few squinty photos) but we are so glad we did! The shade is the best place for photos!

3) Be yourself – now this may seem a bit deep and like woahh! However we stand by this and have been ourselves from day 1. We like to portray our real selves on social media and don’t like this whole insta vs reality thing. Okay yes we do photoshoots in advance but when we have full time jobs we have to plan ahead to ensure we have enough content. However when we go out for food we genuinely do eat everything we are given, so many bloggers will take photos, take a bite and then leave the rest. Not us! We eat it all and have been know to eat share a massive starter, 3 pizzas and 2 desserts between the two of us and we are not ashamed!

We also love to go out and enjoy ourselves, we have had many a crazy night/day out and think its important to enjoy life. We have had 2 memorable bottomless brunches; one where we basically walked the entire streets of London and had a fun encounter with a gold buddha and the other where we were ‘slut’ dropping in the middle of central London…. and plenty more to come!

In addition to this when we attend a fitness class, we put our all in and enjoy ourselves. We have been to a number of fitness events where other ‘fitness bloggers’ have turned up late, then hardly participated in the class and then posted on social media how great the class was and how sweaty they are….. nah not us again, we will fully workout!

So our final point – BE YOUR WONDERFUL SELF….. always!

Tibits Restaurant Review

Tibits is a vegetarian and Vegan restaurant chain located in Switzerland and London, they have a total of eight stores (two of which are in London). Three brothers from Switzerland wanted to create a ‘delicious and fresh vegetarian buffet, as speedy as a fast food joint and as cosy as a corner café’ they worked with two of the oldest vegetarian restaurant owners in Zurich and together created Tibits.

Tibits in London can be found just off of Regents street in Heddon Street and also in Southwark (known as the Bankside branch) located just behind the Tate Modern. We visited the Bankside branch on a rainy Sunday morning and as soon as we entered the restaurant our mood was immediately lifted.

Tibits was fairly quiet as the restaurant only opens at 11:30am on a Sunday and our reservation was at 12:00PM, we certainly were not complaining though as it was the perfect opportunity to take some photographs of the restaurant. We are glad we did as well because by the time we left the restaurant was full and the atmosphere was buzzing.

On arrival we were welcomed straight away by a lovely hostess who explained to us how it all worked! You pay by weight, so you can take as much or as little as you want. Once you have filled your plate you can take it over to the till and have your plate weighed. Breakfast is £1.90 per 100g, lunch is £2.30 per 100g and dinner is £2.60 per 100g.

We opted to sit inside as it raining outside but if it had been a lovely sunny morning we definitely would have sat outside watching the world go by.

Tibits has over 40 homemade vegetarian and vegan salads, hot dishes, soups and breakfast dishes. As we visited Tibits at 12:00PM and as it was the weekend there was a selection of breakfast dishes and lunch dishes available.

We were really impressed with the number of dishes on offer and we were completely spoilt for choice. We of course piled our plates up, so we could try a little bit of everything (it has just got to be done). We enjoyed every single option on our plate it was just heaven! We especially loved the lasagna it was sooo delicious.

The bread is complimentary so don’t put that on your plate when you go to get it weighed!

The food is in the middle of the restaurant served on an island that you can walk around and choose what dishes you want to have. We walked around that island several times making sure we didn’t miss anything!

Rach also ordered a large Fitness Green Juice which was really tasty (although we did wonder how small a small would be as the large wasn’t that big). Annie went for a Ginger Kombacher as she had never tried one before and was curious to see what all the fuss was about. The Kombacher was really refreshing and the ginger flavour was divine.

Tibits were hosting a live music bottomless brunch, it was the last one of the summer and included unlimited gin and tonics (sounds right up our street). Guests started to arrive just after we had finished our meal and were sat outside in the conservatory area which was really beautiful and had a lovely atmosphere.

The main restaurant had mainly high chairs and also window benches for a spot of people watching! There is also a small amount of seating downstairs which was really cute and cosy and would be perfect for a bigger party.

The toilets are downstairs and just as a warning are communal boys and girls so don’t be alarmed when washing your hands (like we were)!

Overall we had such a nice experience visiting Tibits and have never really dined in this way before but loved it! We often like to try many dishes (when eating out together we usually share our food half and half!) but this style of dining meant we had a lot of variety and didn’t get food envy if one another!

We would definitely return here and would recommend to everyone whether they are veggie/vegan or not!

The Parlour Brunch Review

Canary Wharf isn’t usually a part of town we visit, especially at the weekends as it is known for being a bit of a ghost town at the weekends! The other weekend however, I had somewhere to be in Canary Wharf so decided to look for somewhere to have brunch afterwards.

The Parlour was our brunch spot of choice, it is located in the Park Pavilion on Canada Square which is just a 5 minutes’ walk from the station. The Parlous is a Drake and Morgan restaurant and from what we can tell it seems that they offer a standard brunch menu across all of their restaurants/bars.

The menu was fab and very reasonable as well, I booked a table to be on the safe side but upon arrival it was clear to see they had plenty of seating available. We were asked if we wanted to sit outside in there lovely alfresco terrace but there was a slight chill in the air so we opted to sit inside. The alfresco terrace had its own bar outside which is ideal especially on a hot summer’s day. By the time we left The Parlour the outside terrace was full as the sun had decided to come out to play!

I ordered the Poached eggs with Avocado & Chilli on Sourdough Toast but instead of poached eggs I opted for scrambled eggs. The dish was served but they had have forgotten I had asked for scrambled eggs as poached eggs were served. I decided to leave it instead of letting them know about the mix up- very British of me but it was still super delicious with the poached eggs.

The crushed avocado was absolutely delicious and the chilli flakes gave it a little kick. I tried to poached eggs and unfortunately they were freezing cold, so I had to send them back but when they returned they were piping hot.

My friend enjoyed the Eggs Royale which looked delicious and she said it was very tasty. They served a generous portion of smoked salmon as well which is also a good thing! You can order the Eggs Royale as a half portion for £4.50 or a full portion of £8.95.

We love the décor or The Parlour it was very millennial and there is gold EVERYWHERE! There were a selection of seats to choose from you could either sit on stalls or comfy arm chairs, we obviously went for the comfy arm chairs. We also noticed there were booths available with round tables for groups which looked super cosy.

The toilets were fancy as well and clean which is definitely a massive plus in our eyes, as you know we often judge a place by how clean the toilets are, we can’t be the only ones that do this.  They had a huge jar of sweets (wrapped of course otherwise that would be gross!)

We noticed when we were on the website that you could have your wedding reception at The Parlour, we actually think this would be a great wedding venue. There are a number of different packages available so if you are getting married and haven’t yet decided on a venue go and take a look!

We would definitely return to The Parlour the food was delicious and the drinks we saw being served looked incredible. My friend has visited on a Friday after work before and said the atmosphere is great so maybe we will have to swing if we are in the area for a couple of  cocktails!

Peterhsam Nurseries & Tea Room

We have been following Petersham Nurseries on Instagram for a while and wanted to visit for ages! It looked absolutely stunning online and totally instagram!

Petersham Nurseries are in Richmond and the most gorgeous place to spend a summers day. Petersham is more than just a nursery selling plants they have the most amazing fancy sit down restaurant and also the cutest tea rooms. They also have catering facilities for large parties and of course sell lots of beautiful plants, flowers and things for your garden.

We visited one Saturday in summer and just went to the tea room, however we know we will be back to visit the restaurant very very soon!

The tea rooms are located at the back of the nurseries and its basically self service. You find yourself somewhere to sit (the covered greenhouses are too hot in the summer but there are plenty of tables outside) and then queue up for your food. Grab a lovely wooden tray and you start at the sweet counter which sells an array of cakes which we assume will change everyday. They offer classics cakes/biscuits/brownies but also vegan options and healthier options too.

Next is the hot food/salad section. The hot food on offer when we were there was a lasagne which looked delicious and then lots of salad bits. We were only having a coffee and a slice of cake so did not try but the salads looks incredible and portion size very generous. You either picked 3 or 5 different salad options.

Lastly you arrived at the till where you could order your drinks. There was lots of options including obvious tea and coffee, but you could also order wine, prosecco or some refreshing juices.

The atmosphere here was lovely and so relaxed, we certainly did not feel like we were in London and felt like we could’ve spent all day chilling here.

Afterwards we had a mooch around the garden centre, there are so many lovely things but sadly we didn’t have the car with us to bring anything back. Next time we will drive as there is a little parking area – however not that many spaces, just to warn you!

There is also a Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden- it’s on our list of places we need to visit as it looks so beaut!

Tourist Guide to Covent Garden & Surrounding Neighbourhoods

Covent Garden is one of London’s most well known areas. It is often on every tourists to do list when visiting London and we can totally see why. Covent Garden has a lot to offer from restaurants and bars to history and culture and it is also home to several London theatres including the Lyceum, where the Lion King is performed. Whether you are visiting Covent Garden for a civilised dinner, a night at the theatre or you plan on dancing the night away Covent Garden is the place to be.

If you want to be in the heart of the city during your stay then we would definitely recommend staying in Covent Garden as there are plenty of hotels on offer.

There are so many hidden gems both in Covent Garden and it’s surrounding neighbourhoods. If there is one tip we could give you when exploring London it would be to walk and wonder everywhere. Don’t waste your time on the tube places are far closer than you think! Oh and don’t stick to the main roads go down the side roads that are off the beaten track because that is there that you will stumble across all the quirky and independent places!

Below are some of our favourite places in and around Covent Garden that would make the perfect day out for you and a friend!

Another Space
If you are fitness fanatics like us that like to try out the local fitness scene in whatever city we visit then why not kick start your day at this boutique gym. Another space is located in soho just a few minutes walk from the centre of Covent Garden. Give spinning or boxing a go and it will certainly leave you feeling ready for the day ahead!

Coffee & Brunch
There are coffee shops on every corner you turn in Covent Garden (or just London I fact)!

Ladurée– A must visit if you are a macaroon lover as they are known for their macaroons. Enjoy a macaroon and an English breakfast tea or coffee in their outside seating area.

The Ivy Market Grill- sitting outside on the terrace overlooking Covent Garden Square is a must! They have an all day menu and also a brunch menu so it would be perfect anytime of day.

By CHLOE- One of the coolest vegan restaurants around has recently opened in Covent Garden serving incredible vegan comfort food YUM!

Dishoom- We would advise arriving earlier than you plan on eating to avoid disappoint as it is likely you will have to que for a table, but don’t worry they hand out free coffee in the que whilst you wait! The brunch menu is served daily until 11:45!

Apple market
Apple Market was once home to a well known fruit and veg market. Although it no longer sells fruit and veg they still continue to support market traders selling a range of unique products (on Mondays the market is dedicated to antiques). The market is open form 10-6.

Royal Opera House
The Royal Opera House is renowned for its outstanding performances of traditional opera. Some of the world most well known opera singers have performed at the Royal Opera House. If you are a fan of the ballet then we would definitely recommend this show.

Street performers
Why not stop and watch some of the street performers in Covent Garden for a chilled after in the Square. You could even go to the Punch and Judy bar and watch whilst enjoying a beverage. Street performers at Covent Garden have to go through auditions in order to perform so they sure do have talent!

Shops
There are so many shops to visit in Covent Garden, some are chains and some are independents so you’ll certainly find some nice goodies. The shops are really quaint so the perfect place to pick up a present for someone.

Dinner
Balthazar- is a US chain that only recently made its way across the pond and to London. The restaurant is in the heart of Covent Garden so the perfect location for some food. Despite being a US restaurant this place is vey French/Parisian with Paris style decor and delicious French food.

The menu is simple but elegant, a variety of starters including selection of artisan bread (which we ordered) and pate de campagne. To drink we went for a cote de Provence (our favourite)!

There is also the dish of the day ranging from duck pie to coq au vin (which was delicious!). Annie went for the fillet of salmon with warm lentil, spinach and walnut salad.

The staff are very friendly and attentive too, which is something we really appreciate.

Theatre
There are plenty of box offices in Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square so if you haven’t pre booked theatre tickets then pop along and choose the show you want to watch! There are so many AMAZING shows! Some we can recommend are: Lion King, Kinky Boots, play that goes wrong, Mamma Mia, Matilda & 42nd Street.

Dessert
In recent years so many dessert places have opened up in London (its incredible). Some people just go out for dessert instead of dinner!

Milk train– this place is loved by all instagrammers as it’s a dream place for a picture. Their signature is ice cream with candy floss around the edge. You pick a cone, a flavour of soft serve ice cream, toppings and then candy floss. It sure does make for a pretty epic picture, and tastes good too!

Bubble wrap– nestled in the heart of china town this place is very popular and quite often there are queues out the door. Despite not being in Covent Garden it is only a short walk away and gives you the opportunity to explore China Town too. The bubble wrap cone is pretty cool and you can watch the staff make them. You pick your flavour ice cream, your topping and your sauce and hey presto your first bubblewrap ice cream!

Yorica – closer to China Town/Soho Yorica serves dairy free frozen yoghurt and ice cream with all the toppings. For those with an allergy but a sweet tooth we highly recommend this place for dessert.

We had such a fab day out exploring Covent Garden and it’s surrounding neighbourhoods. Our spending money was kindly gifted by Hotels.com but all views are our own.

Sampling the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé on tap in All Bar One

We visited All Bar One last week at Picton Place just off of Bond Street. We visited to sample their Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rose wine for a nice catch up, drink and some nibbles – what more could you want!

Who would have thought you could order wine on tap in a bar. Like normally it’s the lads ordering a beer on tap but now we can order wine on tap too and its never tasted so good.

We both ordered a medium glass of Provence Rose, It was served at the perfect temperature, nice and chilled just the way we like it! Warm wine is the worst and we really struggle to drink it but we didn’t have that problem here.

The wine was a very pale pink colour, a pretty blush pink that went really nicely with the copper work surfaces/tables at all bar one.

We were sat down chatting and both kept saying how delicious the wine was and how easy it was to drink. The summer feeling you got when drinking this wine was fabulous, we both imagined ourselves in France drinking a glass of it sat at a marina looking at yachts with a bowl of olives……. any guesses as to where exactly we pictured ourselves in France…… (let us know your guesses in the comments below!)

The fab thing about ordering wine on tap in our opinion is also how much quicker it takes to serve. No stress in finding the bottle, taking the lid or cork off and then pouring rather than just pulling a lever right on the bar!

In addition the good thing about all bar one is that you are never not close to one. In fact there are lots in London and 52 Around the UK!

All bar one also offer a lot of 2 for one offers so it’s a good place to take your friends to for a catch up or maybe that guy or girl you are dating….!

Timeout More Review

We have recently signed up to Timeout More which is a perks card that gives us things for free, sounds amazing right? We are absolutely loving all the perks so far and since signing up we always make sure we check Timeout More before booking a restaurant to see if we can pick up a perk!

Timeout More costs £29.99 for 12 months which is £2.50 a month which we think is 100% worth it and like they say that is less than a coffee! It’s definitely worth it if you are like us and enjoy eating out which we all know can be expensive in London.

There are so many perks available including: Que jump, free cocktails, secret dishes, menu upgrades, free starters and sides and the best thing of all is that you can use the offers when you want even in peak times.

It is really quick and easy to purchase the card all you need to do is sign up online, they will send you an activation code to your email and you are ready to go!

You can browse the offers available at the Time Out More browse page, each venue has its own listings page with details of the offers they have including any terms and conditions they have.

We visited The Real Greek this week and of course we made sure we checked Timeout More prior to booking a table to see if we were able to claim any perks and luckily we were!

We were both able to order a drink for free which was a bonus we went for a prosecco as we were not feeling the beer! The waiter was a little unsure as to what the Timeout More card was but he spoke to his manager and it was fine!

When you are ready to use the offer all you have to do is click the ‘Use Now’ button which will generate a unique offer code. This code will expire after 10 minutes if not used but don’t panic you can always create a new code by just clicking ‘Use Now’ again. Show your code to a member of the team and it really is as simple as that.

There was a £10 minimum spend per person that you had to spend before getting the free drink but we were there for dinner so this wasn’t a problem!

There are hundreds of restaurants that each offer a different perk including: Pizza Pilgrims, Frano Manca, The Real Greek, Where the Pancakes Are, Cote Brasserie, Tortilla, The Modern Pantry, Nonna’s Gelato, Palm Vaults and so many more! You can search by location, venue, cuisine, offer and price point.

If you spot a perk that you want to use but not right away then simply use the ‘Save for later’ button and a copy of the offer will be saved under ‘saved offers’ which is found under the ‘my accounts’ section of the website.

We cannot wait to start using our Timeout More perks card whenever we are out and about in London and we suggest you get yourself one as well!
