Lunch in Narnia, London

It’s December!

I’m officially allowed to go overboard on all things Christmas.ย 

And really where better to start than what might be the ultimate new date spot?



…uh, I mean Dalloway Terrace.

This little pocket of Central London has been transformed into a winter wonderland.

Complete with snuggly blankets and an endless supply of hot water bottles.



Snuggle in and get cosy beneath the glittering sky.



Mulled wine compulsory.


As is a good healthy dollop of fondue.




The ultimate sharing experience, and just the thing for a cosy date.



Just be prepared to see your date in, uh, a different light.

No-one looks cute during a proper fondue session.





If you can manage pudding after your barrel of molten cheese, well then I commend you. I think we should be friends.

If not, make do with hot chocolate.


The gingerbread option is my favourite.

And it comes with a pillow sized marshmallow and willing dunking victim.


Sit back, slurp and snuggle.


Rather pleased with this little baby, I have a real thing for bees. You’ll never believe where I found it… check it out.


Weighed down with cheese, wine and hot chocolate we finally said goodbye to Narnia.

On your way out you’ll pass a little flower stand.

Stop by and pick up something Christmassy.


Now December’s here, there’s really no wreathon not to!

    You had me at molten cheese <3 ๐Ÿ˜€

  • What a beautiful dreamy place! Love the hot water bottles and the food looks absolutely delicious! I would certainly be able to fit in dessert after a barrel of molten cheese – or maybe just a hot chocolate, well, who could resist that cute little gingerbread man ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • This place looks amazing, but it was the wreath that really caught my eye! Just pinned it and going to attempt to recreate something similar DIY, then when that fails I’ll probably try to hunt down the flower stand you mentioned!

  • I love your outfit, it seems incredibly festive somehow ๐Ÿ™‚ this place looks like a dream, I’m struggling to get my hands on mulled wine at the moment (it’s definitely the right time of year so why is nowhere serving it??) and can’t think of a better pairing than fondue! xxx
