The View from the Cab.

As an alternative to conventional dining I can personally recommend Berry Bros & Rudd, Wine merchants to Royalty, at the bottom end of St.James Street where it meets Pall Mall. I believe that I am correct in saying that they are the oldest wine and spirits suppliers in London, once being a coffee importer and temporary residence of one Napoleon of France. They offer themed tasting evenings of red and white wines accompanied with a signature menu to suit each of the selected samples and an explanation of the vineyard from which they have been sourced. They also host lunches with less sampling. Both these events take place in the revamped cellars. I know that these evenings can be extremely popular so I would recommend that you book well in advance of any proposed visit to London.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
