Angler x Nyetimber Best of British terrace 

Michelin-starred seafood restaurant Angler has joined forces with English sparkling wine Nyetimber for the launch of its vibrantly floral summer terrace.

London Feminist Film Festival

Celebrating the wealth of successful female filmmakers is the London Feminist Film Festival, now in its 6th year. This year’s ‘Feminist Classic’ – part of the BFI’s strand Woman With a Movie Camera series – will be Sama, directed by Néjia Ben Mabrouk who will also attend a post-screening Q&A. Other highlights include the session 'Keepers of Culture', focusing on African heritage and feminist documentary practices, and 'Handmaking Herstory' which features 2018’s Like Dolls I’ll Rise by Nora Philippe, which premiered at Switzerland’s film festival Visions Du Réel.

Mindful Chef x Ham Yard Hotel

Healthy recipe box delivery service, Mindful Chef has unveiled its delicious summer menu in partnership with Ham Yard Hotel. Joining forces for a second year, Mindful Chef has developed a menu full of nutritious and sustainably sourced ingredients. Guests can pick from an array of healthy delights such as Dukkah spiced falafels, pan-fried hake, heritage tomato and fennel ratatouille, and mint pesto. If you've still got room for seconds, a raw lemon and raspberry ripple ‘cheesecake’ is also on the bill for a slice of guilt-free indulgence.

Brunch at 100 Wardour Street

Music venue-come-fine dining establishment 100 Wardour St has become a Soho staple in recent years, and now with head chef Kim Woodward  – previously the Savoy Grill's first ever female head chef – at the helm of its gastronomic offerings guests can expect much more than the usual bistro brunch. Instead, expect choice ingredients prepared in hearty style and experimental vegan dishes mixed in with the finest grilled meats – as well as the wide range of entertainment one would expect from this super trendy venue.
