This weekend I popped in to the iconic, mid-century Lancaster London Hotel to try out their ‘Island Grill’ restaurant. The restaurant boasts a central London location – just 5 minutes walk from Paddington Station – and offers a modern, seasonal European menu. It’s also recently been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s top Three Star rating, thanks to Head Chef Adam Woolven’s vision to create an eco-friendly – yet luxurious – dining experience.

Three years ago, two friends Tiffany and Rebecca set up the salon, and thanks to their success ever since, they have just moved in to a bigger premises a couple of doors down. Yay for small business successes!
