Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to Jamie’s Italian to try the new Quick and Easy dinner menu which has launched to celebrate Jamie Oliver’s latest book – 5 ingredients.

The newest addition to The Ivy’s collection of all-day British brasseries – The Ivy Tower Bridge opened last week and I had the pleasure of visiting the sparkly new eatery. Located along Southbank at the foot of Tower Bridge, you’re not short of a spectacular view from their outdoor terrace. But some may argue the view is better on the inside!

We were attentively seen to our table and offered drinks straight away, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to… View Post
