Discovery of the week

Rök Smokehouse & Bar in Shoreditch is a Nordic inspired restaurant specialising in mouth-watering smoked dishes and locally sourced British ingredients. With a variety of delicious dishes, a relaxed atmosphere and super friendly staff, an evening at Rok is a real treat.

Song of the week

Taylor Swift said that her latest track ‘Bad Blood’ was all about losing a friend. David Cameron certainly seems to have lost a friend this week in Boris Johnson, who announced his support for a Brexit. The Prime Minister is said to be “livid” with Mr Johnson, who on Monday indicated that Mr Cameron and his allies are “wildly exaggerating” when they claim that a “Brexit” would be a “leap in the dark”.

Photo of the week

On Piccadilly on our way to a meeting this week, we passed Fortnum & Mason during its famous clock ceremony. On the hour, every hour, Mr Fortnum and Mr Mason is coming out to inspect the store to check it us up to the normal high standards. A sweet London ritual that instantly brightened up a February morning.
