St James hotel celebrates London and Gregg Wallace returns to Cassis

BigHospitality rounds up the offers, promotions and other special events running at restaurants and hotels around the country.


What’s in a name?


The Galvin brothers Chris and Jeff have teamed up with their hairdressing namesake and fellow Marylebone businessman, Daniel Galvin (no relation) to offer a money-saving promotion to customers. The Galvin & Galvin package is available for £99 and includes a cut and blow-dry with a senior stylist at Daniel Galvin’s salon, a manicure and a bottle of Galvin Champagne when booking lunch or dinner at Galvin Bistrot de Luxe . Customers buy a voucher from the George Street salon and exchange it at the restaurant, saving themselves £48.


Masterchef goes to Lancashire


Masterchef presenter Gregg Wallace has joined forces with Cassis head chef Steven Smith for a second time to host an evening celebrating the best of Lancashire`s produce. The £45 gourmet dinner for 50 guests at the restaurant at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor will take place tomorrow (Saturday June 6) night and will include commentary from Gregg followed by a Q&A session.


Only in London


St James` Hotel &†Club has developed three packages to coincide with the launch of VisitLondon`s Only in London campaign and help guests make the most of the city`s attractions during their stay.


The Only with Oyster deal is £296 per room per night including breakfast, and guests are provided with a pre-paid Oyster card, London guide book and umbrella. Champagne and canapes are also served in the room. 


The City Sights by Bicycle package costs £312 per room per night and equips guests with two bicycles for the day and a guide book. It also includes Champagne and canapes in-room and breakfast for two.


Luxuriate in London is the hotel`s premium package, costing £711 per room per night for a deluxe room including breakfast. Guests are chauffeured around the city to their favourite 10 attractions during the day before being given a glass of Champagne in their room followed by dinner at the hotel`s Andaman restaurant.
