Afternoon Tea at The Runnymede Hotel

Ruth and I were lucky enough to share an afternoon tea at the Runnymede Hotel with Chris, Alex and Linda last Bank Holiday Monday. The Runnymede is conveniently located very close to junction 13 on the M25 motorway, near Egham. I understand from friends that the spa facilities are extensive and quite marvellous We had […]

Prague Hotels (Again!)

I recently spent a week in Prague at the Intercontinental Hotel. Unfortunately, their swimming pool was closed for maintenance for the entire week. However, they arranged for a hotel car to take guests (for free) along to the Hilton where we were able to use their pool and spa facilities. When I finished, I just […]

Tea in Milan

If you should happen to find yourself in Milan, near Milanofiori (home of the International Congress Centre, a Jolly Hotel and a shopping centre amongst other things, but fundamentally Central Nowheresville) and you fancy a good cup of tea, you could do much worse than visit Adriano at the Black&Noir café. You’ll find him at […]

Afternoon Tea Chez Wally

Recently Ruth and I were invited to see an old school friend of mine, Chris Wallace. I hadn’t seen Wally for a long time, so it was good to catch up again. It was quite bizarre, because Wally had been reading this blog, so his view of my recent life was rather selective The main […]

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

For the first time in a long time, today we had some Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They’re just like doughnuts, but much more delicious. I first came across Krispy Kremes whilst I was in Atlanta, Georgia. I visited a company in Boston, MA once and one of the employees was top of the popularity pole because […]

Review of Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester

I went to The Dorchester with Ruth and Martyn for afternoon tea last Saturday afternoon. Ruth and I drove in to King’s Cross and parked close to Martyn’s boat. We collected Martyn and then caught a cab to The Dorchester. We had made a reservation (certainly recommended for Saturdays during the summer), and arrived at […]

Review of Afternoon Tea at Harrods

This is the first of an occasional series of reviews of afternoon tea at various locations. Today I’m starting with Harrods in Knightsbridge, London. Allegedly there is only one Harrods (according to their own advertising), although there seem to be a number of stores hidden away in airport lounges around the world. We had tea […]
