The Modern Pantry at House of the Nobleman
Featuring works by Monet, Damien Hirst and Zaha Hadid, ‘The House of the Nobleman - The Return' ran for two weeks at Boswall House. Overlooking The Regents Park, this stunning property was converted into one of the capital's most exclusive galleries.

AA Notable wine list
It has been a tough task selecting the wines that make our wine list as unique as the food it is served with, but our hard work has paid off. The lovely people at The AA have recognised this and named ours one of 231 notable wine lists in the UK for 2011 - 2012. Tasting each and every one of those delicious wines has been such a chore but we will continue to seek out and sample more notable wines for your delectation. Promise!

We won't sing the rest, but we would like to sing about some of our neighbours. Resting alongside the Guardian and the FT on the communal table in the café is the very pretty, Clerkenwell Post . Perfectly capturing the spirit of the area, this beautifully produced magazine is proving hugely popular with locals and visitors. Please help yourselves to a copy the next time you are in. We wish them every success for the future.

And just around the corner, on Compton St, N0. 74 Hair and Beauty have just celebrated their second birthday. Martin and his team have had two hugely successful years which have seen them styling shows at London and Paris Fashion Weeks. The Modern Pantry can create salads for the health conscious or a naughtier range of sweet treats to start your hen party in style. For information on pricing please contact the salon.
