Goodbye January and hello February fun! With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we take a look at some great local choices for dinner with a special someone. Feast your eyes on what’s cooking – and be sure to book soon xx
Va Va Valentina! For lovers who love fine Italian food, Valentina is offering three courses from their main menu plus a glass of bubbly for £24.95. The offer’s valid from 11-14 February, so if you can’t get there on Valentine’s Day, you have a choice of three alternative dates. If you prefer your bubbles “a casa” why not swing by and treat yourself to a bottle of Bellussi Prosecco and receive a free box of Baci chocolates to take home, too (offer valid now until 14 February)

East Sheen’s newest restaurant is Canham. If you haven’t been yet, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse and they have a special menu (£35 per person) for the occasion. There’s a choice of three great sounding starters, four mains and three desserts. Who could possibly resist such delights as Scallops with Gremolata, Roast Duck Breast with Morello Cherries or Lemongrass, Ginger and Lime Leaf Chocolate Tart?

Burger Lovers Rejoice! Some of us love love. Some of us love burgers. Some of us love both. If that’s you, then you can combine these two great passions at Pickle & Rye where a special Valentine’s Burger Menu awaits. Booking recommended. Burgers from £9.95 and there’s 50% off on Tuesdays after 6pm (so we’re talking two for the price of one!)

Here you’ll find some out of the ordinary (as well as more usual) dishes, including caviar, reindeer and liquorice crème brûlée (served separately, obviously!). It’s also a great place to pick up some yummy Swedish chocolates to eat at home.

Mad about Madeleine’s. OK, so this isn’t an ‘eat in’ suggestion but given how pretty they look, how lovely they taste and what a great Valentine’s gift they make, we just wanted to let you know that Madeleine’s Cake Boutique is now taking orders for cookies, cupcakes and cakes for 14th February. We especially love these chocolate heart cookie boxes filled with M&Ms. They can be personalised with a message for your special someone ~ a gift and card all wrapped up in one delicious treat!
