Valentine’s Day At King & Godfree

There’s no shortage of atmosphere and romance at K&G—the newly renovated Lygon Street hot spot has something for everyone, especially this Valentine’s Day. Think heart-shaped French goat's cheese, hampers for two, single stem roses, and a Valentine's Day crooner serenading the crowd. Venture upstairs to Johnny’s Green Room, where you can munch on salumi and sip on Spritz. And for dessert? Dip into Pidapipo’s one-night-only special flavour Matcha Made in Heaven. Sounds dreamy.
