The Belgravia Dog Show & Cocktail Paw-ty 2017

The Belgravia Dog Show & Cocktail Paw-ty is presented in association with Chestertons on Friday, 23 June 2017 from 5.30pm to 8.30pm

The event promises to offer a fantastic array of canine festivities for you and your family (including four legged friends). There will be a scrumptious fayre, delicious cocktails, delightful doggie disco, competitions and exhibits from a variety of pet-friendly companies.

We are also proud to announce that ALL profits from the show will be donated to Dogs Trust (www.dogstrust.org.uk/). This fine trust (formerly the NCDL) is the UK largest dog welfare charity and cares for over 17,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres in the UK – and one in Dublin. A most worthy cause.

Part of the event will involve the much-anticipated set of competitions to be enjoyed by competitors and spectators alike. These include: dog with waggiest tail, dog with prettiest eyes, dogs who look, like their owners, best dancing dog, best on lead and heals, and last but not least, cutest puppy

As a public announcement, we would like to advise everyone attending the event to keep their fury friends on a lead at all times. As you can image, there will be much excitement and the organisers cannot accept responsibility for visitors.

Children under 3 and dogs accompanied by an adult enter free of charge. Tickets may also be purchased at the door on the day, subject to availability.

Doggy Speed Dating

B+B Belgravia is pet friendly and we welcome you and your furry friends to join us as our esteemed guests. This month promises an exciting event for dog lovers visiting our great capital: Doggy Speed Dating.

A dog can give a person a newfound sense of independence and confidence that they didn’t have before. Dogs are more than just pets – they are family. Inviting that special four-legged friend into your life can be somewhat of a challenge. Matching the right dog to the right owner can often be frustrating. Much like their owners, no two dogs are alike.

Fetch & Follow are hosting a Doggy Speed Dating event in the Ace Hotel in London this month and will be supported by several leading experts in the field. Tickets are £20 and include a 10-minute appointment with each industry expert, doggy charity and doggy personality. As a special treat (for good behaviour) you will receive two small plates of – Beef & Bone (roasted hanger steak & grilled bone marrow) and Spiced Corn Dog (battered & fried spiced corn on a skewer with Togarashi spice).

Tickets also include a drink – Terrier Gone Wild (wild berry and tarragon lemonade) or Salty Dog #2 (Bombay Sapphire, Pamplemousse Liqueur, Soda and salt rim) and a doggy-inspired goodie bag from Fetch & Follow.

We love our dogs and we encourage you to attend this wonderful event.

St Patrick’s Day

Lá Fhéile Pádraig! If you speak Gaelic, you might know this means ‘the Day of the Festival of Patrick’. Approaching the end of March, we welcome Spring time with open arms. But not before we celebrate Ireland’s patron Saint.

On 17 March every year, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated by thousands of people across the globe.

In true Irish style, the festivity is not confined to only one day. The whole weekend is a flurry-filled multitude of Irish music, dance, street theatre, food and a parade. You can expect the traditional shamrock featured in every pub as far as the eye can see and a plethora of folks dressed green outfits, ready to celebrate like no-one else can.

Look out for landmarks illuminated in brilliant emerald light. There are around 180 international sites that will be bathed in green. This is to remind us that we are all welcome to take part in the celebrations in true Irish fashion.

In London, the three-day celebration officially starts on Friday 17 March 2017. The festivities will continue throughout the weekend, ending with the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Central London and Trafalgar Square Festival on Sunday 19 March 2017.

How St Patrick’s day came to be

The Feast of Saint Patrick, otherwise known as St Patricks day, commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. 17 March is in fact the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461).

The Shamrock

A shamrock is a young sprig of clover and, according to legend, is the well-known symbol that Saint Patrick used as a metaphor to explain the Holy Trinity to Irish pagans. The three leaves of the small plant were used to represent The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit.

Accommodation

As you can probably guess, the festival promises to be very popular and accommodation should be planned well in advance. B+B Belgravia is located in the heart of London with quick travel access to all the Saint Patrick’s Day events. To make a booking, please call +44 (0) 20 7259 8570 or visit our website: http://www.bb-belgravia.com

Mistletoe & Glühwein

bbc-christmas-market-1Christmas is in the air, and across our cities and towns the festive markets are opening their gates.

In London, Winter Wonderland is in full swing, with the attendant thrills, bright lights and revolving carousel bars. Only a 10 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk from B+B Belgravia, this is always a popular choice.

If you prefer a more traditional venue, the Tate Modern hosts a village of Alpine chalets from their entrance down to the river. This is a magical location to enjoy your Glühwein, and only a short walk from the South Bank Centre, with its gorgeous Christmas crafts fair.

To enjoy the famous London Christmas lights most people head down to Oxford Circus (only 2 stops on the Victoria line), from when you can admire the famous shopping thoroughfares of Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, and the spectacular Regent’s Street illuminations. However, I would recommend hustling through those crowds as quickly as possible and heading towards Covent Garden, where you will find the enchanting (and calmer) Seven Dials; this year transformed into a magical winter forest.

Whatever you are doing this Christmas the Christmas capital has something for everyone; just ask our duty manager team on site for their personal recommendations.

Merry Christmas One And All!

New B+B relaunches Bar and Restaurant to Hampshire diners

The Old House Hotel in historic Wickham Square has received a facelift!

Now sitting proudly alongside her sisters in Belgravia, Edinburgh and Weymouth , B+B Wickham is the newest member of the B+B Collection.

The building boasts original features galore and the 12 bedrooms have been individually designed around this. Ornate fireplaces, sash windows and cosy nooks are complimented with great quality white cotton linen on super comfy beds. Bathrooms boast luxurious products, white fluffy towels and each room has a bath and shower. B+B Wickham is a stylish alternative to outdated bed and breakfasts and offers an  affordable alternative to the predictable 4* chain hotel.

Garden Room 12

Public areas have been freshened with a brand new colour scheme  – adding the unique B+B flash to the bar and reception areas. Design and quality are big parts of the B+B philosophy.

Bar

But there is a big difference between B+B Wickham and her sisters and that is The Old House Bar and Restaurant.

Building on already fine reputation , Chef Andy Millard has worked tirelessly to create a menu we are all super proud to shout about! Hampshire is bursting with food purveyors galore and our new menus celebrate this heritage. Paired with a wine by the glass list sourced by our in-house expert, we are in no doubt – The Old House Bar and Restaurant  will become THE food and drink destination of Wickham and Hampshire. … and if this wonderful weather holds for the summer – the suntrapped garden welcoming dogs will be the perfect al fresco venue for lazy lunches!

To help celebrate the opening, members of the B+B Collection Belong + Benefit Club are to receive an exclusive opening offer. Click here to read all about it!

B+B Belgravia and Team wish B+B Wickham and The old House Bar and Restaurant all the very best for their opening and launch on 20th July 2015.
