Spanish Restaurant

“FIne tapas in Marylebone in an expansive, relaxed setting - and with a deli next door Ibérica feels like an Andalusian mansion on the corner of Great Portland Street. So many London tapas bars go for the dark tavern look, but here the balconied upper level, internal windows, Moorish oversized lamps and traditional azulejo blue and white tiling create an expansive, relaxed atmosphere.”

Health
“Private Walk-In Urgent Care Centre for children at The Portland Hospital. Open daily 8am-8pm. Initial consultation is £150, everything after is extra (may also be covered by your medical insurance). For non-life threatening injuries & illnesses. Hopefully you won't need it, but if you do need emergency care going to a private hospital avoids the long wait at an NHS centres. Although its walk-in calling ahead is helpful.”
