when the hype of Christmas is over, and the decorations are down, it’s tough to get excited about going out and having fun. Everywhere seems quiet and cold, and everyone is nursing that big winter hangover.
It’s hard to drag yourself out when your pocket is a little emptier than usual, but if restaurants and bars are making offers so good they can’t be refused, it might just persuade us to venture out to enjoy a cocktail, a special lunch or even a scrumptious evening meal.
Here are a few rather special treats to think about when you’re out braving the January sales and fancy rounding the day off with a great value bite to eat.
Steak lovers can enjoy a Chateaubriand at the No. 1 Sports Bar near London Bridge Station, whereas pub-goers can grab a pie and a pint at The Rose Pub on Weston Street. You can start your day off well with a breakfast at The Brigade on Tooley Street or dive into a sumptuous Italian feast at Tentazioni in Shad Thames.
There… something to look forward to – at any time of day – in January after all!
Don’t forget these deals are only available in January, and you must quote ‘The RIVER’ when booking or visiting
