Insider Secrets: Great restaurants our clients love us to book!

As personal PAs we are frequently asked to make a booking at a restaurant. Sometimes, our clients have a favourite place but we’re often asked to find them somewhere new either for a celebration, a date night, because friends are in town or just because!

Our little black book of restaurants is quite full so we’ve decided to share some insider secrets with you. Here is just a sample of some of the places that our clients enjoy – just give us a call if you’d like to know more about our exclusive PA services. I’m sure we’ll be able to help just – we have literally everything in our little black books!

Insider Secrets – Restaurants

Here are 9 of our recommended restaurants and eateries:


For casual dining with a loved one, for a girl’s night out or with local business clients. This small chain of Hertfordshire restaurants is a firm favourite with us and our clients. It offers sustainable, local produce, fabulous wines and an amazing atmosphere.


This gem of a restaurant is tucked away in Wheathampstead. It serves stunning, authentic Southern Italian cuisine in a contemporary setting.

The Alford Arms

The country pub with a difference. After a long dog walk, this dog-friendly pub in Berkhamsted will not disappoint with it’s traditional pub food served with flair!

Sketch London

This funky restaurant is now a Mayfair institution. Choose the Gallery for an incredible afternoon tea or dinner, or the Parlour or Glade for more relaxed breakfast or lunch. Check out the loo with a difference!  

Darwin Brasserie at the Sky Garden

Another high-flying restaurant. This time in the City surrounded by gardens and another panoramic view of London


Enjoy dinner with a view from the top of the Shard. Stunning food with cocktails and drinks whilst the whole of London is spread beneath you.

Sushi Samba

This is fusion food at its best. Multiple locations to choose from and the food will not disappoint.

The Canopy Market

This place is great for those occasions when you want a mooch but everyone wants to eat something different. Whilst quieter than Borough Market, Canopy Market is equal in the quality of food offered.

We don’t just book restaurants

Our clients ask us to fulfil so many tasks for them. From taking packages to the post office, to organising birthday parties and holidays; from booking tradespeople, to filing and paying bills: we can help.

We are proud to say:

  • No job is too big or complex. We manage the personal life of high flying executives as well as running ad-hoc errands for people who need a bit of help every now and again.
  • We know lots of great places to go and hidden gem retailers – if you need something ‘a bit different’, I’m sure that we can surprise you with some great ideas!
  • If you need someone to hit the ground running and just get something sorted out, then we are happy to help.

If you would like to talk to us about how we can help, please pick up the phone to Sarah and Heather, the Personal PA’s of the Hour Hands team.
