Regrets? You might have a few. (Then again, too few to mention.)

Yes, skating, crooning and fine dining are on offer at the Ice Rink Canary Wharf, which was officially launched last week.

As well as a larger catering selection the new look venue, in its eighth winter at Canada Square Park, it has the addition of a "skate path" taking you on a trail through trees illuminated with fairy lights.

Boisdale On Ice bar, a pop-up version of the Scottish restaurant at Cabot Place East, is providing a menu including burgers, mince pies and haggis sausage rolls, while oysters come courtesy of the Wright Brothers.

The rink, here until January 13, is also hosting lessons, which cost £20 for one person for 30 minutes. You can also have a two-person lesson for the same price.

Theme events include Sinatra On Ice every Tuesday night - which sees TJ Johnson and his band perform the swinger's hits - and Date Night, which has "all-inclusive amorous menus".

Bollywood Night and Dancing Queen Abba Night will also be taking place with magnums of Perrier Jouet NV Champagne awarded to the skater who best reflects the theme of the evening.

The rink opens at 9.45am. It closes at 11pm on Monday to Saturday, and at 7.30pm on Sundays.

Prices are £12.50 for over 13s and £8.50 for children. Family tickets for two adults and two children or one adult and three children cost £32.
