Rustic outdoor eatery The Lobster Shed at The Pig Hotel with views of the Atlantic, is all about the wood-oven and local charcoal fired grill. We kicked off with a refreshing orange and thyme gin and tonic, before diving into an array of small sharing plates, including sweet and tangy pickled mussels, the juiciest shell-on prawns; accompanied by possibly the best chilli mayo we have ever tasted, and the smooth mackerel pate. For our mains, we had the lobster thermidor made with vintage Cornish gouda; paired with a light and fruity Rioja. Followed by an 8oz rump steak cooked pink on the grill, and the shed¿s signature ¿Lobster & Camel¿ consisting of the lighter, but equally delicious, lobster classic, cooked in foragers butter and washed down with a crisp Pinot Noir Rose Brut. We finished the evening with the old school knickerbocker glory and chocolate sundae; both wickedly indulgent, warm and gooey with all the trimmings.



Shopping is one of the myriad of experiences that has changed since lockdown restrictions eased, and sometimes different can be better as a trip to Canary Wharf’s shopping malls pleasantly proves. Incredibly well organised, most if not all stores have hand sanitiser on the door and the one way system that often seems tricky to navigate elsewhere works seamlessly. It’s a great option for higher end of the high street brands such as The Kooples, Maje and Reiss but with options such as Zara and Mango too, there’s a decent mix. Naturally it’s a lot quieter than usual because of fewer office workers, and that’s always a bonus for retail therapy. But since there’s so many restaurants and bars on the estate there’s enough visitors around to ensure an atmosphere that makes for a fuss-free and easy to navigate day out.

Four varieties of probiotic bacteria are added to the extract which provides the perfect food for the bacteria to thrive.
