My Weekend in pictures! Part 1 - Windsor, Radio Rooftop Bar & STK

It's amazing what you can pack into a weekend so I am going to have to split it into different parts. I booked my travel back in January looking forward to a jam packed adventure and even had Ascot circled in my diary for 10th May! Woop! The count down had started.....




I arrived by 10.30am on Friday to be greeted by my beautiful friend Steph and her lovely boyfriend Tom. Steph and I have known each other for years we used to work together at Accessorize (we have lots of funny stories for you, maybe another time).

On the way back from the airport we stopped off in Windsor, I hadn't been here before. It was so british, beautiful, clean, historical and had an amazing choice of shops! Zara, Topshop, Whistles, French Connection, Bobbi Brown, Jo Malone...list goes on! I also visited a number of tourist shops of course its amazing what they sell in those (I came out empty handed).





We stopped for lunch at a lovely Restaurant called Bill's it reminded me of Carluccio's but with a greek themed menu.

I had Chicken Skewers which came with cous cous and tzatziki which was really fresh and tasty, Steph and Tom had the hamburger.



                                             

We then went back to Steph's to get ready before running for a train to head into London to go to the ME hotel.


Lovely evening in the city

We turned up at Radio bar entrance where we were went through a short tunnel to a Lift where we queued to go to the 10th floor, I didn't really know what to expect but it was really busy when we got up there at 7pm. Reading through the menu we quickly selected our cocktails, we tried the 'AM/FM' & 'ME loves'.



Next we headed back down in the lift where we had a table booked for dinner in the hotel restaurant STK.

STK has a really good reputation to be a celebrity haunt, mostly as it is new in London and has other branches in the world including LA, New York and Vegas (we didn't see any celebs). 

It would be wrong of us if we didn't choose Steak from the menu so we asked for the New York Strip Steak, some braver than others with our choice of delivery. We ordered a selection of sides to go with it to share we ordered too many as we were quite full quickly.


Brioche bread to share with amazing and fragrant chive dip

SIDES - Mac & Cheese, Sweet potato (herb crusted) & Truffle, parmesan chips
I have to be honest, I didn't finish my steak, I am pretty out of practice eating 2 meals in one day but we had rumour of an amazing dessert.... The Fairground Attraction! 

It was pretty hard to photograph as it was quite dark but it a lovely stand that looked like the London Eye, which housed 2 mini portions of Toffee apples, Marshmallows, Green candy floss, Hot chocolate milk and cinnamon donut balls.

It was time to head to bed after dinner so we could be ready for Saturdays adventures at Ascot (Part 2 coming up soon)! 

Have you been to STK or Radio? What did you think?
