Bottling Poetry: Gosnells London Mead at the Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe

You’d be forgiven for thinking that London is awash in gin-based cocktails this summer, but fear not, mead – that historic drink – is making a well-deserved comeback.

Flora Indica: Britannica Exotica

Once again, SEEN is thrilled to discover a new restaurant in London that prides itself on the freshness and juxtaposition of its ingredients, not only in its food but in its cocktails too. So it is with great pleasure that we plan to dine (and possibly drink) at Kensington’s Flora Indica, a venue that promises a British/Indian culinary experience removed from the bewildering pace of city life, or what we might understand as traditional Anglo-Indian cuisine.
