Olympic Studios: Restaurant review - The shrimps had a mysterious taste nobody could explain

Now this is a place with real pedigree. I don't mean it used to be owned by Pierre Koffmann or helmed by Marco Pierre White or picked up a Michelin star under Raymond Blanc. Oh no.

Wimbledon Men's Final 2013: How did THEY get a ticket? Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler among the celebrities spotted on Centre Court

Those magical Centre Court tickets were rather easier for some to procure than for others. Being Scottish helped, naturally: there was Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister. Multiple Olympic gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy had a seat, as did the star of ‘The 300’, actor Gerard Butler. The latter had somehow colour co-ordinated his grey jacket with a non-Scot on his right, Hollywood idol Bradley Cooper, which perhaps explains the pair’s smug, sunglassed selfie, captured for posterity on Twitter.
