Wowcher Reviews Bottomless Brunch at the London Elizabeth

brunch100

When you think of the term ‘brunch’, what comes to mind? An eggstravagant event in one’s social calendar, where drunken stories from the night before are exchanged over some poached eggs and OJ? Well, now it seems ‘brunch’ is an overused and clichéd thing to do in London. I mean, eggs are eggs, whether they’re Benedict, Royale or Florentine. It seems that what was once …

The Egg Off

Josh-G-Egg-FINAL

Easter, as we all know, is the time to celebrate spring, eat copious amounts of chocolates and of course, celebrate having two days off!

We know what you’re thinking, Pancake Day – that creped up on us! After the controversial and intense ‘Who’s The PumpKing or Queen of Wowcher?’ battle, we thought it was time for …

Wowcher Reviews Café in the Crypt

I’ve been to my fair share of food establishments. Like most people who live in London, I love trying new places and discovering hidden gems across the city, but despite these culinary crusades, I have never munched my way through sandwiches and cake at a place with ‘crypt’ in its name. It’s unique. It’s interesting. It’s free food. So here I am, accompanied by Josh and Anina, undertaking the very difficult task of eating afternoon tea …

The Wowcher Guide to Breaking New Year’s Resolutions

Nyresolutions

Dictionary definition: Resolution. Noun. A firm decision to do or not to do something. What is it about the end of the year that makes us feel like we should suddenly change?

The Wowcher Guide to Christmas Hampers

Santa baby, slip a hamper under the tree, from me. It’s an awful good gift, for my mummy. So hurry down the chimney tonight…. ‘Hamper,’ from the old French word ‘hanepier’ translates to a ‘case for goblets’, but now refers to a delicious basket of goods given as a fashionable gift for a special occasion… and what better occasion to give a lovely bundle (or …
