Ed Sheeran’s London restaurant struggles to survive amid the pandemic
ED SHEERAN has revealed that his London restaurant, Bertie Blossoms, is struggling to survive the pandemic – and even he’s not famous enough to get people through the door.
It got so bad that it was selling white wine at half price on Deliveroo to attract takeaway orders during lockouts.

The restaurant opened just two months before the Covid access. Ed said, “If you want to make a small fortune in the food industry, you should start with a large fortune.
“It’s one of those things that is very difficult to do, unless you’re Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay and you have a lot of restaurants.”
Bad Habits singer Ed, who is # 1 on the singles chart, has teamed up with his manager Stuart Camp to open the West London restaurant named after their two wives.
He wanted to invest the profits of his lucrative tours in something substantial after he originally had the idea of opening a chicken shop.
Ed said, “It got off to a rocky start when it opened two months before the pandemic.”
The simple menu includes starters made with Butley Creek oysters from Orford in Ed’s beloved hometown of Suffolk, a selection of small and large plates and desserts.
“London is full”
It is suitable for all diets and is reasonably priced for its affluent location. The most expensive item on the menu is a £ 24.50 rib eye steak with hand cut chips and pepper sauce.
Ed said, “There are really good beers and good things on the menu – which is basically what I want in the bar.”
Ed spoke to songbird Jessie Ware on her Table Manners podcast about his sideline and admitted that when he visited London, he wanted to eat somewhere so he could switch off from the international pop star.
Ed, who owns a hectare villa in Suffolk, said, “I love London, but when I lived there all day I felt trapped and didn’t go out much. I thought people cared more than they did.
“Now I live in Suffolk and immerse myself in London for one night and enjoy the experience. I am a boy from Suffolk and this is where I feel most comfortable.
“I can go to a pub and meet people and say ‘OK’, but London is full.” And there are a lot more restaurants to compete with.

JODIE SLAMS LONDON ROASTS

Jodie Comer slammed London food saying “I haven’t found a good roast in London”
Jodie said, “I haven’t found a single good roast dinner in London. In many places you get a large plate that you take off and put on your own plate – I don’t like sharing. “
The actress’ new drama Help shows Jodie back on home soil with co-star Stephen Graham.
She told the Reign With Josh Smith podcast, “When I was filming in Liverpool, I was allowed to take out all of my mom’s dinners.
“I brought my roast in on a Sunday, then my mother would cook me and Stephen every Thursday.”
We’re talking about Britney and Oprah
BRITNEY SPEARS might follow Meghan Markle and record an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey after she decided she would like her opinion on the conservatory that has determined her life for the past 13 years.
After her father, Jamie, resigned as chief curator this week, her new attorney, Mathew Rosengart, is reportedly “open” to her speaking publicly.
A source said: “Britney has been approached by many outlets to sit down, but Oprah would be their first choice.”
There are still several legal steps to take before the restoration can be abolished so that she can discuss the experience.
Britney, who posted this picture on Insta, was interviewed by Oprah in 2002.

ROCHELLE: I HAD A QUIET DRIVE

The singer was still performing with the chart-topping group while expecting first daughter, Alaia-Mai.
Rochelle, now a successful TV host, said, “One of my biggest lows is also a high – being in the group and finding out I’m pregnant.
“It was a low because I didn’t feel like I should have been. It was almost like going in and saying I was hangover.”
Speaking to the Conversations of Inspiration podcast, Rochelle, who has since had a second daughter Valentina and son Blake with JLS star husband Marvin, added: “It was a really strange scenario.
“It was an odd mix of emotions that I wanted to be honest with, and it really wasn’t.”
It is worth having such a lovely family.

LIAM IS A LITTLE RICH FOR BRO
INDIE rock titans Liam Gallagher and Richard Ashcroft have entered into a “biblical” collaboration that should infuriate Noel Gallagher.

“Richard Ashcroft, Our Kid (Liam), Ed Sheeran and the little guy from One Direction (Harry Styles), they all have an army behind them.”
Liam, whose track with Bittersweet Symphony hitmaker Richard C’Mon People (We’re Making It Now) is called, hit back and said, “Dig me out all day, but Richard Ashcroft piss on you and the 2 Ronnies everybody Weekday.”
