    Just in time for this year's celebrations of the 150 year anniversary of St Pancras Station, the station's St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar by Searcys is getting a fresh new look. Just over a decade after it opened, the new design means it'll now have a Kitchen Bar which will be just the ticket for meetings during the day or evening chef demos using the space's open kitchen.

    One key element of the redesign has been the reworking of the old private dining

    Brindisa’s Shoreditch restaurant is set for a winter makeover when it relaunches as Tapas Brindisa Shoreditch. Aside from a pretty serious refurb, the menu’s set to have a bit of a revamp as well. It’ll still be bursting with the quality Spanish food Brindisa are famous for, but this time with a new focus on rural and coastal regions, specifically around the east and south of Spain spanning from Cadiz to Catalonia. It’s due in no small part to the influence from

    Looks-wise, the space sounds like it'll be a lot airier with floor to ceilings windows replacing walls
