all-day restaurant also dispenses breakfast martinis to go with savoury plates of chilli beans on toast or Hepburn’s black pudding with bubble ‘n’ squeak and eggs ‘sunny side up'.

Ham Yard Hotel is Firmdale Group’s 8th outfit in town and to refer to it as ‘trendy’ is a bit of an understatement. Stepping foot inside, i almost felt as if i’d wandered into a private gated community in the heart of Piccadilly Circus. This multi-million pound hotel boasts its own 188 seat theatre, a 1950s bowling alley imported from Texas & a rooftop garden. Now no-one can deny Kit Kemp’s talent for designing interiors – the modern British styled decor throughout the venue is simply stunning – from expensive furnishings to bespoke quirky artwork, there’s always something to look at everywhere you turn....
