February 2020 - what's new?
Welcome to our first 2020 update. We kick off the New Year with the UK's departure from the EU and enter the transition period with all the uncertainty which that brings. Whatever this year has in store, rest assured that your Capital Centric team will continue to support you in finding the right restaurant for your groups. Let’s hope it’s a positive year where our economy thrives in the face of Brexit.

Britain on a Plate - Camden
Group favourite Alexandra, whose superb home dining experience has been wowing groups for the past year,can now accommodate up to 35 guests seated across two rooms.

Alexandra's aim is to entertain, feed and surprise guests and have them leave with full tummies and big smiles. She says 'We host our guests as we would our family.....in an informal, warm, relaxed atmosphere where people can kick back and enjoy their meal'.
