Join the Fry High Club in Wood Wharf

One of the pleasures of living near Canary Wharf  is that it tends to be a magnet for all manner of commercial operations that try to attract business from the many thousands that work there.

The latest is London in the Sky, a pop up restaurant with a difference !

For  10 days, five of London’s  Michelin starred restaurants will transfer their menus and dining experiences to a sky table, suspended 100 feet in the air. The table seats 22 guests, with a guest chef, sommelier and waiting team serving from the centre of the table.

So it really is a pop up and away restaurant I suppose ? watching the lunch customers hoisted above Wood Wharf, I began to consider what kind of experience it would be ?

Could you really enjoy a meal dangled 100 feet from the floor , tied into your seat and open to the elements ? Yes there is a little umbrella top but the gusts of wind off the river may disturb your soufflé.

Drink may be another problem, you may decide to intake but the inevitable outcome is a trip to the toilet. Ah that may be a problem and involving squirming in the seat until landing.

I would guarantee that if I went in a party, I would be the one sitting next to the person who would spend the entire lunch regaling me with all the other strange spots they had dined in.

Is life so dull in Canary Wharf that office workers will look longingly out of the window and say lets do lunch dangled under a crane ?

I can see the old crane drivers from the docks looking at the table and thinking they could have done that for a tenner with Jellied Eels thrown in.

On a more serious note, there is a small big top being erected for Spiegeltent in Wood Wharf which offers 10 days of Entertainment, some of the highlights include Henry Blofeld talking about Test Match Special, a Silent Disco and a Aircraft Circus .  There  are a number of music, comedy and kids events.

  1. Are the seats reserved for absolutely raving loonies only or can I who is absolutely petrified of heightsand used to be assistant foreman of Canary Wharf from 1971 until 1980 for the P.L.A be chained and gaged so I too can be taken up under protest to enjoy the wonderful sights which I did in 1994 by special invitation , ha ha ha My book I am writing should interest all the lovely people of the East End. God Bless you and all who fly upwards into outer space. Terry Farfort …………..Templar Knight out some time in the future xxxx
