Somewhere between hunting lodge and horsebox, our private dining room is tantamount to a country escape. Secluded from hubbub of the Cafe but for a couple of grazing horses, the space seats up to 14 for meetings, meals, parties and whatever you might not like to share with everyone else.
What we're listening to
One of the weirder lists we’ve come up with lately, but sometimes, when you’re two months down in a year that’s already been pumping out tunes you know you’ll be listening to for awhile, it’s nice to mix things up.
Throw a spanner into an otherwise harmonious list. Then throw in a few more.
Tell us what you like, share your favourite tracks, or send us a list and we’ll stick it up.
Throughout his career of more than 50 years, David Bailey has been photographing unforgettable people and iconic moments from the world of the rich, fashionable and famous, anonymous arty folk and exotic travellers.
The exhibition stretches through a series of thematic, contrasting rooms to highlight the breadth of his work. For someone so well known for his A-list work, this show demonstrates just what a versatile, diverse photographer he is.
We’ve been hitting up the compilations from super cool Parisian lable Alter-K for a little while now for the way they always satisfy in the face of musical itchy feet. Now we’re loving their multi-sensory blog of new artists, obscure remixes and the latest releases conveniently interspersed with lots of fun sidelines.
Most importantly though, you’ve really got to get the Seriously, Eric #1-6 comps.

In the morning
When once we only saw 9am on the wrong side of a night out, now the promise of fluffy pancakes, Eggs Royale and flat whites somehow keeps us all in line. Oh, and a chorizo hash brown for when it all goes horribly wrong.
The convergence of writing and illustration is the Berocca of modern expression, each bringing the colour to the other. Our latest pool of great graphic work comes from a collection of designers, artists and agencies sourcing examples in signage, artwork, greeting cards, homewares and wherever else letters abound.

HONEY BERRY SOUR

Chock full of berry goodness
and some honey essence to
smooth and soothe.

and blackberry. Shake &
Pour Over Crushed Ice.
DAILY CAKE QUOTIENT
Everyday, our kitchen brings us a jar of cookies. Or sometimes a pretty little cake stand with a banana loaf. Macaroons. Meringues. Depends how they’re feeling. But everyday, regardless, there is a new batch of home made treats to eye up on your way in and have with a cup of tea.
We’ve banged on about Protein before, but now they’re back with a new show that’s a great big witty mish-mash of dance, dialogue and live music to the tune of some social commentary. This time round, Luca Silvestrini holds up multi-cultural living in the UK to scrutiny and looks at where the lines are drawn between ‘us’ and ‘them’.
Entertaining and poignant, Protein makes dance accessible and engaging, all whilst having us take a good look at how we perceive ourselves and each other.
It’s no secret we’ve got soft spots for hot bikes (except for Adam, he likes cars, we forgive him). Whilst the somewhat juvenile colouring-box antics of one East London bike builder don’t really do it for us, the level of bespokification of Paris’ Heritage bikes is more fun than a DIY sundae bar.
Look at these! They’re just beautiful – certainly don’t look like you’ve just arts-n-crafted yourself a ride out of the flouro leftovers of a Lego factory.
We make you pancakes every day of the year, but when a day dedicated just to them (not quite) rolls around, we’ll make you even more. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ll even tell you how to do it yourself.
1100 ML BUTTERMILK
120Grams BAKING POWDER
950Grams PLAIN FLOUR
2 TEASPOON SALT
110 Grams CASTER SUGAR
IN ONE BOWL MIX ALL DRY INGREDIENTS TOGETHER
IN A SEPARATE BOWL MIX ALL WET INGREDIENTS
THEN MIX THE WET INGREDIENTS A LITTLE AT A TIME INTO THE DRY UNTIL JUST MIXED. DO NOT OVER MIX OR THE PANCAKES WILL BE CHEWY
LEAVE TO REST FOR 5 MINUTES
PLACE A NONSTICK PAN ONTO A LOW HEAT, ADD A SMALL AMOUNT OF VEGETABLE OIL, WIPE OUT WITH A PIECE OF KITCHEN ROLL.
SPOON SOME OF THE MIX INTO THE PAN AND COOK UNTIL ‘SET’ ENOUGH TO FLIP OVER AND HAS A NICE GOLDEN COLOUR.
FLIP AND THEN COOK UNTIL GOLDEN. SERVE AND EAT IMMEDIATELY WITH ICING SUGAR AND MAPLE SYRUP.
At the sharing table
WHO DID YOU MEET?
Once upon a time, we chatted to strangers, brought jams to neighbours in times of plenty and said hello to passersby. We hear it still happens up North.
We also hope one might choose to shoot the breeze with fellow diners at the sharing table. Maybe you might debate current affairs; maybe you share a secret haunt; maybe you might just pass the pepper.
She’s the fantasy lovechild of PJ Harvey and Nick Cave, from South Tyneside, with a dark and quivering almost operatic voice. On tour on the back of her first album, her live performances steal even more space for that melancholic velvety voice which somehow makes you forgive her for taking you on such an anxious, heart-wrenching ride.
Cool, fruity and feels like you’re giving your insides some serious loving – one of our favourite smoothies since day one at the RHC.
PB & J
