A beautiful evening in Covent Garden

Saturday, September 26, 2015

It was a weekend to celebrate me turning the big 2-8 and so I decided to spend it with a few of my nearest and dearest.


Starting off the day bright and early, I took the train into Waterloo to begin my day of shopping on Bond and Oxford Street where I met my bestie IntheFrow for a yummy lunch at one of our favourite places, Vintage Salt. 

After chowing down some truly scrumptious lunch, we continued with our shopping before stoping for a goodbye Nero. 


It was now time to head over to th beautiful Covent Garden to meet for husband for dinner and drinks. But first, we were desperate to look at the latest installation in the Covent Garden Antiques Hall by the French artist Charles P├ętillon. 



Once we could finally drag ourselves away from this mesmerising installation, we made our way to Me at the Melia Hotel - by far one of my favourite rooftop bars - to enjoy a beer and watch the sunset across the London skyline. 




Once the sun had set, we made our way back into Covent Garden to indulge in a rustic dinner at Tredwells. 



Starting with a bottle of Chilean red, I browsed the menu to see a whole whost of tasty delights. To start I opted for the chicken liver parfait and bacon jam and Gareth went for the warm rosemary bread and butter. My starter was amazing and almost moose like. 



For our main, we both opted for the 'pink' burger (but you opt for this well done) with bacon jam and a side of blue cheese croquettes and a pot of skinny fries. 



I have to be honest, the burger was a little salty for my taste. But I think that I maybe over indulged on the bacon jam that was also in my starter. If I were to reorder, then I'd probably go with something not as rich. 



But food aside, the setting of Tredwells is very beautiful. Vintage white tiles with dark woods and copper fixtures make it a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy some yummy food. 

But overall, it was a fantastic weekend with some truly wonderful people!
