It's been a busy old day. This morning I was speaking at a fantastic event up at City University for "wannabe" journalists. Next up, the Warehouse AW press day (more about that tomorrow) and then a peek at the AW collection from All Saints.
And to round off a busy day, a soothing soda water and some Southern-themed snacks at The Waterside, a pub/restaurant right next to Imperial Wharf. Sadly, I didn't spy any Made in Chelsea cast members, but I bet they've been in there...
|The Waterside is right on the river, two minutes walk from Imperial Wharf station|
|If you like a river view to go with your meal, this venue is ideal|
|We gorged on a selection of starters - the menu has recently developed a distinctly Southern flavour and as the pub is undergoing a revamp in May, look out for more of this to come|
|These ribs were smothered in a delicious chipotle-style sauce|
|And the crispy calamari was perfected by the mustard mayo on the side|
|These little jambalaya balls were spicy and full of fun Southern flavour|
|The venue is split over three levels with a more formal restaurant upstairs|
|I'll be back to see what delights the bar has to offer after the makeover - Mr. Fashion Detective is doing his art-magic on the place, so expect something extra special|
|The pub is already full of distinctive features - I want that lightshade in my house (if only the house was big enough)|
|You can cosy up under the funky low lights|
|The pub has two heated terraces with one directly overlooking the river; once the sun starts shining it'll be perfect|
|As usual, El found something unusual to pose with - the cage chair is right up his alley (this place has an emphasis on dining, so it's totally family friendly)|
