Aberconway House in South Street has been put up for sale. This impressive 7 bedroom property was built in the 1920s for the industrialist Henry McLaren (who became Baron Aberconway) and offers nearly 23,000 sq ft of space, neo-georgian styling and access to “secret gardens”.
The property is available through Portman Heritage and offers are asked for in excess of Ã‚Â£46million.
Harden’s Restaurant Guide has given Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s a pasting in its latest edition. The Financial Times has reported on the verdict given to the Mayfair restaurant:
…slipping down the list is Gordon Ramsay at ClaridgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, behind Oxford Street,
which is labelled Ã¢â‚¬Å“conservative, going on boringÃ¢â‚¬Â by one critic. Ã¢â‚¬Å“What a
disaster!Ã¢â‚¬Â wails another at the much-derided La Noisette, the latest addition to
the Ramsay group, in Knightsbridge.
Mark Birley, the founder and owner of the legendary Mayfair members’ club Annabel’s, has died following a stroke at the age of 77.
He founded the world famous venue – based in Berkeley Square – in 1963, and named it after his wife of the time, Annabel.
