A little bit of Sweden in London

Do you remember our friend Maddie who moved to Oslo?  Of course she flew with KLM. We like them.

Maddie’s family is half Swedish but they had moved to Oslo.We were thinking about her when Mummy wondered if there are any dog-friendly Scandinavian restaurants in London.

And there were!  One of them is The Harcourt in Marylebone. The day after we arrived home, we went to dine at The Harcourt for lunch with Mummy’s godson, Edgar.They haven’t seen each other for awhile.

Ahhhh, here I lie on the bench – The Harcourt is dog-friendly of course!!!!It’s a Swedish restaurant – so guess what Mummy had for lunch …Swedish meatballs! Of course!

We sat in the bar area on the ground floor but there were other private rooms.They told us this is the Swedish neighbourhood of London – who knew?

After lunch we decided to take a stroll to find other Swedish “places” and immediately across the street we found the Church of Sweden across the street. Note: It’s a Cafe (larger type) and Church. 😉Alas, it was not dog-friendly.

The Swedish Embassy is nearby and further down the road was Totally SwedishWe assume it’s a shop that sells all things Swedish – we couldn’t check it out as dogs are not allowed inside. 🙁

But then we came across this store – Another Country Riding the wave, they said – it’s actually an English brand but sells furniture that is rather Scandi in style.Maybe it’s because it’s in the Swedish neighbourhood that its called “Another Country” – and we were allowed inside.

We also came across a pretty church – St. Mary’s.– in Bryanston Square. Wyndham Place, York St, Marylebone, London W1H 1PQ

May’s comment: Adding to our list of cuisine … some Scandinavian dining experience.The Harcourt – Scandi pub-restaurant for cross-Nordic fine-dining in the Swedish neighbourhood of Marylebone – with the Swedish Church across the road and the embassy around the corner. A five-storey Georgian townhouse, besides the bar area, there are private dining rooms. Located at 32 Harcourt St, Marylebone, London W1H 4HX

This has been added to our Wine & Dine List of dog-friendly London restaurants.
