Pub Delights At the Princess Of Wales

Nothing beats a good old English pub and The Princess of Wales is a rather splendid example of one. Proudly sat on the outskirts of Blackheath common, this pub has been recently revamped and now boasts a gorgeous interior, large outdoor garden and a gastro style menu of British classics.

I'd suggest coming on a Sunday and making a day of being in Blackheath if coming in from Central London – the surrounding area of Blackheath Village is a great place for a spot of shopping and the large fields are also a treat as the warmer weather approaches.

As the name may suggest, the walls in this great pub are adorned with a collection of pictures of Her Majesty, back in her heydey and this complements the dark olive walls and plush purple booth seating. The pub is also purpose built for all weathers, a wintery snug keeps guests cosy in the colder months whilst the conservatory and al fresco area make for a fine summer's day.

For a head to toe regenerating experience, head over and ask for the Refinery's Signature Treatment, a 90 minute treatment incorporating a back scrub, facial and light massage all in one leaving the modern gentleman feeling refreshed and revived.

For over 15 years, the salon and spa has also been renowned for it's barbering services, highly skilled stylists create sleek and cutting edge styles ensuring their clients look professional and preened at all times.

With both locations being so convenient, The Refinery is the perfect pit stop for a lunch break or for a spot of pampering before a night out.

Bomberg Watches

Bomberg is a relatively new company on the Swiss watchmaking industry, however, they have already created a huge impact. Having launched in 2012, the brand is now set to launch in the UK and 2015 will see the brand emerge as a new dimension in what has always been considered a fairly classic industry.

The brand itself is centred around provocative and edgy marketing and the watches themselves are equally as bold and aggressive marking a new era in the luxury watch market. Bomberg launched in 2013 at Basel and now boasts stockists in over 20 countries and being sported by a whole host of celebrities and athletes alike.

Competitively priced, the watches range from £450 with the more expensive models costing up to £2850. Famed designer Jean Pierre Braganza has also announced a collaboration with Bomberg and his watches are set to be shown on the runway over London Fashion Week (do keep an eye out for our coverage of the show!).
