If anyone is planning dining out for a special occasion I would highly recommend Adams in Birmingham @restaurantadams. We had the tasting menu which is pretty pricey at £90 each with the paired wine at £65 but it was so worth it. I'm always a bit nervous when I book an expensive restaurant (that's my opinion) incase it doesn't live up to expectations. The 6 of us loved every course. I'm more of a savory person so the dessert was my least favourite out of the menu but I couldn't fault it. The attentive waiters and waitresses talked you through each course and the specific wines.
The only thing, but this is a personal taste - I enjoy dining at quirky restaurants in terms of decor and this to me was very 'vanilla', it's a classic cream and black dining style, nothing offensive but nothing exciting.
Overall 4.5 out of 5
✨This morning we’ve woken up all inspired after last night’s talk with the absolute dream team behind @chicweddingsinitaly, @designanarchyevents and @thevenuementor. They spoke about the magnificence of mirror balls and this is our favourite we recently found at @thecuckooclub ✨
We love the throwback vintage styling of The Ivy Garden Chelsea's private dining room - it has the feel of a 1930's Palm Court don't you think?
Private dining for up to 30 seated, or a cocktail reception for up to 50 guests. Such a stunning space!
Today we’ve been spending Sunday with some TLC at @thebodyshop with their Woodland pop up (check out our stories from today) and we’ve spent some time speaking with the @searcysgherkin at their wedding showcase! This is a little snippet of their top floor as couples plan their day and look over a city they love. This side is looking towards Canary Wharf and the South East, would you like this view at your special day?!
And the award for best Halloween themes loos goes to... @sketchlondon! If they weren't cool enough with their egg shaped pods, they've only gone and transformed them into a giant pumpkin patch! 🎃 #halloweengoals
There's so much gorgeousness going on at the Palm Room @themarylebonerooms that we don't know what to look at first!
The mirrors, the flooring, the plush seating or THOSE windows, we're loving it all! Just a fabulous private dining space 😍
Happy Monday friends!
