Healthy Christmas gifts from Redemption

We all love Christmas, but it’s a time when many of us spend, consume and waste much more than usual.  We don’t want to be a grinch so we have come up with some solutions which mean you can spoil yourself without spoiling yourself – with bells on!

We are all becoming so much more conscious these days, and people are favouring experiences over THINGS.  We say YAY to this at Redemption, given that we also hate waste and landfill (we aim to recycle 90% of our waste from the restaurants).  We are launching two Christmas presents this year which you can buy online – a week of Buddha Bowls for £30 or a dinner for two for £60. We think there is no more thoughtful a gift than saying to your loved one:  ‘spoil yourself without spoiling yourself’.

Five Buddha Bowls £30

Buy your loved ones a passport to health for just £30!

We don’t all have the time or money to go on a full detox retreat in January, so we’ve put together a weekly Buddha Bowl course for £30. This thoughtful gift will help your loved one, colleague (or even yourself!) to eat healthily in the new year.

Each day we prepare a super-nutritious Buddha Bowl in both our Notting Hill and Shoreditch branches (click here for the details) – and this package will entitle the bearer to one each day for the 5 days of the week.

Christmas at Redemption

We all love Christmas, but it’s a time when many of us spend, consume and waste much more than usual.  We don’t want to be a grinch so we have come up with a solution which mean you can spoil yourself without spoiling yourself – with bells on!

Did you know that one kilo of either beef or lamb can cause more greenhouse gas emissions than a passenger flying from London to New York? (click here for the source of this remarkable fact)

Let’s face it, Christmas is not a very nice time of the year for turkeys and even cheese has a high carbon footprint so the IDEAL choice for the planet overall is vegan.

So, Andrea has put together the most gorgeous, nutritious and luxurious Christmas spectacular menu, even managing to convince Mrs Payne to share her secret recipe for the best nut roast in the world.  Here is the menu in all its glory.  Do please book in (6 or more) and enjoy this wonderful festive feast with us in Notting Hill in December.

Give us a call on 020 7313 9041 to book your meal.

We’re open as usual until Friday 23rd December when we will close after lunch.  We’re back on Tuesday 3rd January for lunch.


The UK’s Most Hungover Moment

The UK’s Most Hungover Moment

Ahh, December. Our favourite festive month is now in full swing: a comforting barrage of Christmas songs on the radio, a baffling array of saccharine adverts on the telly and, of course, the annual office Christmas party. According to Addison Lee, Thursday 10th is the biggest office party night of the year, providing a great opportunity to relax and have fun with one’s colleagues (AKA engaging in a regrettable public teenage snogging sesh with Barry from Finance).

Fast forward to Friday 11th December, and our own research shows that at 09:35, the UK will reach the pinnacle of its Christmas party hangover, making it the most hungover moment of 2015 (#MostHungover).

But don’t worry – Redemption is here to help! Firstly, we want to laugh at your embarrassing photos from your Christmas parties, so please tag @Redemptionbar in your social media uploads and you’ll be automatically entered into a competition to win dinner for two with us (worth £60).

Secondly, we’ve collaborated with Supper London, the world’s first Michelin-starred delivery service, to deliver our Hangover Survival Kits throughout December. It includes an innovative Bombay Love smoothie with turmeric and ginger, a nutritious maki rolls platter with quinoa, avocado, enoki mushrooms and peppers, and a rainbow superfood Raw Goddess salad. A waaaay better idea than the usual bacon sandwich and a can of Coke.

Sometimes December can feel like an endurance test and you arrive back at the family home by falling through the door in a gouty, shivering mess. Now you can avoid that by having a little bit of Redemption delivered to your door!
