Rainforest Café, Shaftesbury Ave, London

Sarah from Purchasing, July 2019

Upon arrival we were greeted by a staff member who showed us down to the restaurant were we waited to be seated.

After looking at the menu, I had chosen the chicken with a peppercorn sauce with chips and veg and my daughter chose the fish and chips. Both portions were of good size and cooked well, needless to say we devoured our dishes pretty quickly.

We also ordered as an extra one of their thick milkshakes which was absolutely heavenly and would even go as far to say it was probably one of the best milkshake’s I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. For dessert we both chose the chocolate brownie which did not disappoint although we made a typical school boy error and filled ourselves up on drinks and shakes meaning by the time we got to dessert we were pretty full and could only manage a few spoonful.

Every half an hour the tropical Rainforest that surrounded us started to rumble and flash to replicate a tropical thunder and lightning storm. Animals including monkeys, elephants and toads moved amongst the storm to create an animated real life jungle experience. My daughter seemed to enjoy this and took pleasure in soaking up the atmosphere and familiarising herself with the all of the different types of animals.

The only down point of the experience I would say is that the service was pretty slow which frustrated me, although as my daughter is quite young she didn’t seem to mind as she was distracted by the jungle theme décor.

Top Tip
Order one of their milkshakes, they will not disappoint!

London

Natasha from Sales, October 2018

The tour started in Mayfair where we were taken to Fortnum and Mason where we were treated to 2 different types of cheese, one of which was an amazing double truffle Gloucester cheese! I didn’t think I liked Gloucester until that day.
We were then taken to an elite cheesemongers called Paxton and Whitfield, probably one of the oldest cheese vendors in the business. We tried some fantastic blue cheese!
We moved on to Lina Stores where we tried cheese which has been soaked and matured in red wine and also we also tried a prosecco one. I hadn’t tried cheese like that before.
After this, we had a little sit down outside and ate a slice of margarita pizza at an adorable pizzeria not too far from Lina Stores. Once we had finished sitting down the tour guide brought over some goats’ cheese for us too!

Top Tip
As there are so many different types of cheese to try I recommend not to eat beforehand.
I also recommend wearing comfortable shoes as you will be walking around London to all the best places to try cheese.

I purchased the cheese Tour for my friend and I and it was great. We tried lots of different types of cheese and we discovered some of the best places to buy cheese in London that I hadn't been to. The tour guide was great, he really knew the area and was a real cheese connoisseur It's a shame the tour didn't have the option to pay extra for a wine pairing as that would have been worth the extra money.

I really enjoyed the meal that we had with the Italian Dining for Two voucher, at Prezzo. Yes you can only pick from a restricted menu but my husband and I were happy with the selection of food to choose from. The staff were friendly and accepted our voucher without any problems. The only thing I would recommend is that the voucher includes two glasses of drink per person, instead of one. I had been given this voucher as a Birthday gift and I really recommend it.
