Boulevard restaurant and theatre 

Enjoy modern English cuisine at Boulevard’s designed by head chef, Greg Hillier, who has previously cooked at The Commonwealth Club and The British Academy. In 2017 Greg opened the National Army Museum for Searcys and has worked under Michelin trained chefs Arnaud Stevens and Killian Lynch at Sixty-One Restaurant and The Gherkin.

Plus at Boulevard enjoy an array of shows within their ever transforming theatre.  

“The salmon served up at the Boulevard did not disappoint as it was succulent, moist and full of flavour served along with a lovely squash puree with a hint of spiciness. This salmon is seriously the best salmon I have ever had at any restaurant and so I highly recommend visiting this restaurant for this dish alone.”

Suscents provides parfums which are all inspired by your favourite designer perfumes or aftershaves giving you your favourite scent at a fraction of the price. 

How would you like to wear your favourite scent at a fraction of a price?

“The bottle is plain and clear with a beige label so don’t expect a fancy designer looking bottle. However once I spayed the perfume I was immediately hit by floral notes and was surprised in how much it smelt the same as Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb.”
