The brunch movement is continuing to take steam and has no intention of stopping. Each week there is a new establishment offering one as part of their menu choices. As an experienced ‘bruncher’ Sabi Phagura has spent hours whiling away weekends over bottomless Prosecco and knows exactly what to expect. But even she was amazed at the array of food Hilton London Bankside have laid on as part of their bottomless brunch menu at their stylish OXBO restaurant.
If the lighter longer spring days are making you yearn for the great outdoors, make sure you are armed with the right backpack. That’s because when it comes to packs, one size does not fit all. So, depending on whether you are going on a morning run along the river, going trail running, going on a hike or meandering up mountainsides, be sure to check out the new Osprey spring collection. I went along to their reveal at Center Parc, Woburn, Hertfordshire.
For those seeking a luxury sanctuary not too far from the UK, look no further than Delphina hotels & resorts in Sardinia. Just a two-hour hop from London, Valle dell’Erica is one of eight four and five-star hotels in the collection, each nestled in its own stunning area of Italian coastline. This five-star abode is great for families, group getaways and even provides the perfect hideaway for couples. With a long white sandy beach, seven well placed private nestled coves, three seawater pools and a swim-up pool bar, it’s the ideal place to put the brakes on the fast-paced life most of us are accustomed to.
I admit I was late in the day to discover Bill’s restaurants partly because I travel so much and well when I am not travelling, I try to eat at home. But when my friend Jo won a meal for two competition with them almost four years ago, I was gutted I hadn’t visited sooner. I love going there as a treat and was not going to turn down the opportunity to go there when asked to review the new Bill’s Dinner Set Menu which runs Sunday to Thursday from 5pm until close.
We all know regular exercise has many benefits, including keeping your heart healthy and strong. And despite being a qualified fitness instructor, I’ve always said being fit doesn’t have to mean going to the gym. Everyday activities, such as gardening and walking, can have physical benefits and support mental wellbeing too which as you may know I’m a huge advocate of.
