I love hanging out in the East with my lovely girlies, whether it’s bar trotting, dining or wondering the streets of brick lane, there is always something new and exciting to discover round every corner. So I thought it high time I started doing a few East end reviews of some of the restaurants, bars and pubs that left me wanting more!
First up… Boundary rooftop restaurant and Albion (quaint adjoining cafe). This idyllic rooftop setting is perfect for a romantic date or girly luncheon, offering a gorgeous selection of light bites and wine – we highly recommend the king prawns. The transcendent panoramic views ranging 360 degrees from Canary Wharf, round to the City’s Gherkin and Barbican, and back again to the rooftops and spires of East London where you can look out over the gritty streets of Shoreditch, are a great way to see a bit of the City from a high… with glass of wine in hand. The service was particularly good and they even provide blankets, an outdoor log fire and electric heaters so there is no chance of getting a chill as the winter draws in, alternatively it’s the perfect hangout for long Saturday summer lunches. Make sure you diarise this hidden gem before it closes for the winter months. And when that happens…
…Albion at Boundary is always open and is where you would be best off heading the next morning with a slightly fuzzy head. With an array of gorgeous pastries on offer, straight from the mouth of the Albion Oven, and a breakfast menu with just the right sized servings, you are sure to find something to your liking without the confusing nature of some menus that provide a choice simply too wide to fathom.
