Do people still celebrate Valentine’s day? Yes they do says Spencer Wheeler, owner of Wheelers Garden Centre and the flower stall by Turnham Green tube station.
Do they still buy red roses? ‘100%’ he says. It’s red roses all the way. We’re a conservative bunch when it comes to showing our affections.
Since romance is not dead, we’ve put together a little guide of which restaurants in Chiswick are making a special effort for Valentine’s day, which this year falls on a Friday.
Annie’s will be serving a special three course seasonal Valentine’s menu on 14 February for £45.
Casa Dino is doing the same for £47, and including a complementary Bellini on arrival.
One Over the Ait is offering a sharer steak platter (though that could be a disaster if your partner is not one who likes to share their food!) They’re also offering a 50% discount on the wine.
All of these places are members of The Chiswick Calendar Club Card scheme. Have a look at what’s on offer here.
