Goat Chelsea


Goat Chelsea is a newly opened cocktail bar and restaurant on the Fulham Road in London, occupying the spot of a 350 year old pub. It’s a very stylish, glamorous spot, with deep blue walls, polished wood floors, plenty of original features and a beautiful bar.

The menu describes itself as offering New York-Italian dishes served with delicious cocktails. There is certainly plenty of choice on offer with a great selection of cold meats, pizza, salads and main dishes available. 

We started with some fantastic Italian meats, which included mortadella, culatello, proscuitto toscano and finocchiona. All of which were excellent and made fantastic start to the meal. Moving onto our mains, we sampled the pizzas (bufala campana, heirloom tomato, basilica) which was fantastically good, and the grilled monkfish which was also excellent. 

To drink, we stuck with the cocktails which were really excellent – so well made and rather too delicious. Feeling merry and content, we headed home. Goat Chelsea is a fantastic spot in London to enjoy a superb meal and delicious cocktails. Well worth a visit!

My book launch!

Book Launch

Last Thursday was a bit of a crazy day for me. It was my book launch day, and book launch party in London. What a day it was. Like no other really. I spent most of the day bombarded with lovely messages, calls and flowers, which was so touching, and then I dashed over to Goat Chelsea, the launch venue, to help set up.

It was the most beautiful sunny day and rumoured to be the hottest August day in 10 years. It certainly felt like it as I trekked across town with my bags! My lovely team from the publishers came to meet me at the venue, which was a great opportunity to catch up face to face – there are surprisingly few opportunities to see your publishers in the flesh, despite almost daily email contact in the book writing process.

I was really touched that so many people came along: it’s always scary when organising an event – you hope people will actually turn up! The venue, Goat, was absolutely fantastic and really went out of their way to make every aspect of the event just right. They organised some special cocktails for us on the night; pineapple margaritas and a run and ginger cocktail. Both of which were really fantastic and very popular indeed.

Attending your own book launch is a strange experience. It was so much fun and absolutely wonderful to see my colleagues, friends and family all in one place. The evening seemed to go by in a blur as I tried to speak to everyone. It was so much fun – I’m already looking forward to the next one!
