Valentine’s Day. You can't ignore it.

In case you've been asleep since new year, it's Valentine’s Day this coming Friday (14 February, if you weren't sure) and there are a lot of restaurants vying for your attention. Here is a run-down of three in the local area;

If you are still feeling the pinch in your pocket, check out these low-cost dining options:

Visit Giraffe between 10-17 February and if you ‘Pucker for your Tucker’ (to you and I, that’s upload a photo of your most show-stopping smooch via twitter @giraffetweet or using #puckerforyourtucker) for the chance to win ten free meals for two.

Not so lucky? Enjoy Giraffe’s two course (£17.95) or three course (£21.95) specially bespoke Valentine’s menu (available 14-16 February) serving up buttermilk chicken tenders and roasted provencale vegetable and basil tartlet; rubbed with ‘love’ jerk spiced chicken breast with sweet potato mash and teriyaki glazed, rump steak with grilled green onions, flat mushrooms and wasabi fried rice; finally with a sweet serving of passionate pancakes with fresh strawberries, passion fruit and very vanilla ice cream or chocolate tart with cherry ripple ice cream.


Shaka Zulu

Stuck between a meal out or a fancy drink for Valentine’s Day? Opt for the latter and head to Camden’s Shaka Zulu for a Wild Love cocktail (£20). Made to share, this powerful concoction has a heady mix of vanilla vodka, homemade blueberry jam, fresh lemon juice, lavender syrup and freshly squeezed apple juice infused with lemongrass, all served with rose petals and chocolate covered strawberries. Available on Friday 14 February only.

Break the bank
Alyn Williams at the Westbury

Feeling flash with your cash, but never one to turn your nose up at a good offer? Michelin starred, award winning chef restaurant, Alyn Williams at the Westbury, is serving a specially created indulgent seven-course menu for just £90. Fall in love over a luxurious selection of dishes including: hand dived scallops with Datterini tomato, monks beard and salted ricotta; poached and roasted guinea fowl with white onion angolotti and an apple and kohlrabi salad; rib of Galloway beef, salsify and a broccoli custard; capellini with truffles and parsley; and a fabulously indulgent apple tarte tatin with vanilla ice cream for two. The menu is available for two dinner sittings on 14 and 15 February, the first from 5.30-9pm and the second from 9pm onwards.
