THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE BOOZY

Because the annual January backlash isn’t for everyone, with a fair few sensible folk staying boozy at a time when we probably need it most, we’ve made afternoon teas to swing either way.

We’ve got a boozy option with one of our hard tea cocktails and a side of red velvet cake, or a juice or smoothie with a homemade granola bar, available all of January from 4-6pm.

FARADAY'S SYNAPTIC GAP

In 1832 Michael Faraday put a wire across the river Thames at Waterloo Bridge, and observed electricity generated by the river’s motion through the Earth’s magnetic field.

In this exhibition Rick Myers’ showcases a body of work spanning many forms, each piece considering the neurological, material and poetic aspects of the original experiment.

NATALIE FOSS

In a world of seemingly infinite creative resources, not to mention the entire internet full of information and inspiration, it’s always nice to see someone flourish with a limited range of tools and materials.

Oslo based illustrator Natalie Foss works with just coloured pencils and paper, but creates intricate, eye-catching portraits bursting with human emotion, unnatural colours, and fine detailed shading.

MAROESJKA LAVIGNE

When it’s bitingly cold and you’re wearing two pairs of socks, it’s sometimes hard to see the beauty of the frosty landscape around you.

Let photographer Maroesjka Lavigne transport you to Iceland, where she spent 4 months travelling alone to capture the stark and stunning photographs that make up her series ‘Island’.

Get lost in her snow storms, windswept neighbourhoods, crashing coastal waves and feel hungry when you see some crisp looking fresh shellfish being washed in a whiter than white sink.

AMY WORRALL

Pottery is back. It’s even on TV. However, if elegant, smooth and faultless vases don’t tickle your pickle – meet Amy Worrall.

Amy does weird and wonderful things with clay. She takes quite specific inspiration from sunburnt brits abroad on the Costa del Sol, and uses the forms she creates as canvasses.

She makes everything from cat shaped biscuit jars with removable heads to plant pots in the shape of, er, breasts, lots of breasts.

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.

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.
