Summer wine-tasting and (long) lunch at Boisdale of Bishopsgate – Tuesday 5th May 2020

Literary Lunches | May 2020

Boisdale, in the heart of the City (202 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4NR), is the leader of the pack when it comes to British food. Following the huge success of the port lunch in October, they have come up with another gastronomic treat.
