Vivi in Stile – London
Last week I was given the opportunity to try out the ‘Vivi in Stile’ Peroni app: a free guide to discovering some of the best bars, clubs, places to eat and shops in London and beyond!
The app downloaded onto my phone quickly and painlessly, which was a good start…. it always is. My girl wanted to go shopping for a new pair of shoes, (she has enough of those getting in my way already) however I was hungry so we decided to go for Sunday lunch. I wanted to head to Soho, but the girl wanted to go to Hampstead Heath… the Heath it was.
Two places listed on the app, located close to Hampstead Heath caught my eye, the Bull and Last and the Freemasons Arms – both of them are gastropubs. The Vivi in Stile app handily tells you how far you are located from each place listed in their guide!
Our Sunday adventure began with a pint of ale in the Bull and Last, this pub was teaming with people enjoying Sunday Lunch. The roast chicken ordered by a couple had me salivating at the mouth! It looked and smelled delicious.
The 45 minute walk to the Freemasons Arms through the countryside was the perfect way to build up our appetites. We were both in the mood for a hearty Sunday roast… but unbelievable at only 3.30pm they were sold out of roasts. We were very tempted to walk back to the Bull and Last!
The Freemasons Arms has dining areas which are separate from the bar – just the way like it. Even though they were fairly busy with folks enjoying a drink and/or something to eat, the atmosphere was fairly relaxed and chilled.
I started off with the tomato soup, followed by the Haddock for a main course and the cheese platter to finish. The food was good, but slightly on the pricey side, and the customer service was excellent.
The Freemasons Arms and the Bull and Last are two pubs worth popping into after a ramble around Hampstead Heath. I will be back to the Bull and Last to check out their Sunday roast at some point in the not too distant future.
I think Vivi in Stile is the perfect application for those who like to effortlessly find cool and stylish places to visit, whether that be a bar, club, restaurant, gallery clothes or design shop…
