Breakfast at The Wolseley


The Wolseley, London

I recently wrote about 5 Michelin restaurants I wanted to eat at, well on Good Friday I made a trip down to London to enjoy breakfast at The Wolseley.

Five Michelin Restaurants Where I Want to Eat


The Bluebell, Henley in Arden

There’s no denying I love food, and over the years I’ve eaten in many different types of restaurants, bars, gastro pubs, diners, coffee shops and cafés.
