Food: Winter Wonderland

If you haven’t yet discovered God’s Garden at One Marylebone Church, you’re in for a treat. And with festive gatherings on the agenda this month, you won’t find a better spot. A winter garden set within the grounds of this Marylebone landmark, the focus here is on pairing experiential entertainment with the very best food and drink, making it the perfect place for both post work shenanigans and weekend indulgence. Entered through Floward’s gorgeously scented florist, the space is set within two vast tents, accommodating 200 guests. Dramatic foliage, opulent Persian rugs, twinkly lighting and warm heaters make it a unique escape in the heart of the West End.

Open in the evenings from Wednesday to Friday, and from lunchtime throughout the weekend, whether you’re looking for a venue for evening drinks with colleagues, relaxed meals with friends and family, post-shopping Champagne or wild brunch parties, your prayers will be answered in God’s Garden. Drinks come courtesy of cocktail connoisseurs Soul Shakers, and Moët Hennessy; we love the ‘Hot Angel’, Whispering Angel’s take on mulled wine. Where weekend entertainment is concerned, from the Après Ski Brunch party to the Sunday Feast & Live Music, you’ll be spoilt for choice, and there are a whole host of festive treats planned, too. It’s set to be this season’s most Instagrammable installation. Not to be missed.
