We asked Bevan Tilley for her favourite places near Barrows Retail Marketing.
Stephen, where is the Best Place to grab a coffee and why?
Cafe Rouge (27-31 Basil Street, SW3). Right behind Harrods. Great coffee and just off the main road (not that crowded), beautiful to sit outside in summer.
And where is the Best Place to grab a pint/glass of vino? Why?
The Nag’s Head (53 Kinnerton St, SW1). Charming little pub, quite hidden with beautiful decor and a great mix of locals, regulars and the odd tourist.
In your opinion, where is the Best Place to have a sit down lunch?
The Orange (37-94 Pimlico Road, SW1). Best pizza in the area. Great atmosphere and friendly service – get there early, this place seems to get more popular by the day.
And the Best Place to have a sandwich/wrap?
Daylesford Organic (44b Pimlico Road, SW1). Filled with fresh, seasonable produce. Perfect for a quick bite. Or a lazy winter lunch (best soup in town). Nice touches like cashmere soft blankets on every seat, outside heaters and fantastic service.
Top places to shop?
Sloane Street (if you are – or are dating – an oil baron). But for the average-Joe Kings Road has a great selection of stores and High Street Kensington.
Can you recommend the Best Place to chill out (day or night)?
Zuma (great cocktails) and the Champagne Bar @ Harvey Nichols.
What’s the best kept secret near Barrows Retail Marketing?
Comm (JWT, 1 Knightsbridge Green, SW1). For a hearty meal under £4 and £2 beers and the best service in town. By invitation only
And lastly, what is the Best Place for a big night out?
Public (533 Kings Road, SW1) Perfect place for those nights when going home at 12 is just not acceptable…doors close at 3am!
