Editor’s Review – Margate for Hens

April 6, 2018 | News

As they’re launching a new Margate package MD Ian Lucas sent me there, in a freelance capacity, to check out some hot spots.   I stayed at The Sands Hotel, a lovely 4 star property in the centre of town and right on the beach. Looking left from my balcony I could see the big wheel of Dreamland and to the right was the Turner Contemporary gallery and the harbour arm. My car stayed firmly put in the car park for four days as I explored, shopped and ate and drank to my…

Supplier Spotlight – Petal & Feast

March 29, 2018 | News

This might sound like a strange thing to say at the beginning of an article, but Petal & Feast aren’t for everyone. If you’re looking for formal, they probably won’t be your bag. They don’t do black uniforms or tiny, fancy canapes with caviar and micro-herbs. Instead they wear comfortable, floral tea dresses and their sumptuous food has a rustic, alfresco vibe. As well as catering they also offer flowers and they run their own venue; The Secret Barn.
