What hosts are saying about The Literary Hour
This was my fifth visit to The Literary Hour, and it did not disappoint! It's wonderful to see how they continue to grow this venture - every time I come, they have something new and creative to add to the immersive experience, and the food never fails to impress! Love love love!
I don’t think the secret location was necessary for this event and knowing where it was in advance would have been more helpful as a non Londoner. I thought Philias was fantastic. Loved him taking us off and helping us solve the clues. Those steamed bun things at hawker stand were absolutely delicious and the ribs were cooked to perfection. The nicest ribs I have eaten. Great idea to offer extras for people too, nice gesture! Homely feel too. I enjoyed the evening and the food. Just felt it was way less social than I had anticipated.
So I went alone. That’s the first point. And that’s very brave of me. London has so much to offer but it may be daunting to those that aren’t able to be unaccompanied. I can wholeheartedly say that the host Helen made me feel welcome and despite having seated me in the lonesome corner she then seated me after the starter elsewhere. I knew by going alone that it would be pot luck but the point is that by mid way I had met a plethora of people from all walks of life. Other than the ambience (which was amazing and engaging) the food was good; the theme was also entertaining / the staff came and sat with us and were engaging. We are in London so I’m going to say it how it is - there are lawyers bankers and all sorts of professionals but who I particularly enjoyed meeting were those from ArtRabbit (app) and ToATea (www.toatea.com).
