A deliciously different Valentine’s Day gift for the foodie

By LLM Reporters on 28th January 2016

Valentine’s Day is the single most romantic day of the year. It’s all about you and your significant other. The evening can be very stressful, especially if you have chosen to go out for dinner. Not doubt you will find yourself in a packed restaurant with several other couples having a very similar evening and enjoy the same food.

On the other hand, perhaps you are looking for the most romantic evening, without the stress of other diners and with a fully personalised touch to make it a date to remember. Whether you have been together for a month or for 40 years booking a private dining space for yourself and your loved one. Including a personalised touch from the wines, to the food, flowers and the music – this will very much be your own exclusive evening. The ultimate and unique private dining space Arch 65 was launched by chef Keith Goddard and his team at Keith Goddard Catering just 6 months ago.

It’s one of the most unique and exclusive private dinning spaces, incorporating an intimate location, award winning food, wine and personal discreet service. Hidden under the archways in Battersea, Arch 65 is a stones through away from Chelsea and is the ultimate entertaining space for absolute privacy.
