Most of us would never get in the car with a stranger. No matter how clean-cut someone appears, we have all watched enough evening news to know we cannot take our safety for granted. And yet, every day, hundreds upon thousands of travellers hop in the backseat of a completely unknown vehicle with a person they have just met. “Surely the car service has done their due diligence.

The Egerton House Hotel is already a certified female-friendly hotel (and a Maiden Voyage favourite!) so it seemed only fitting that we send our London ambassador, Yvonne Reay-Scott, and her pug Poppy to try the mouthwatering pet-friendly menu.
