Loch Fyne – Christmas Menu

On Thursday I was very kindly invited to Loch Fyne to try out their Christmas Menu. Those of you that read my tweets will know that I am fully on board with Christmas already, even through it is only the 1st of December. So, what better way to celebrate the start of the festive season…

The Walton – Nottingham

I was very lucky to be invited to the new menu launch at The Walton Hotel last night on Derby Road. I have walked past the outside of the building maybe a hundred times but had never been in before. I don’t know why, maybe I thought it was too posh for me! I always…

Corner Stone – Sherwood

A couple of weeks ago the lovely Notts Foodie and I went on a ‘date’. We have known of each other for months and correspond on Twitter a fair bit but until a recent event we hadn’t actually met. So in an effort to make a new friend who loves food as much as I…

The Alchemist – Birmingham

My two friends Lisa and Steph live in Tamworth, about 20 minutes on the train from Birmingham. Every few months or so we head into the city for drinks and food and a well needed girly catch up. Last night we headed first for The Alchemist, a fantastic cocktail bar on Colmore Row, and then…

Revolution Hockley – Nottingham

I was invited by the lovely people at Revolution Hockley to try out the new menu available this week. Revolution is situated at 7 Broad St, Nottingham, NG1 3AJ, next door to Rough Trade and opposite the Broadway.  Revolution is a chain of individually styled bars across the country. At the last count they have…

The Botanist – West Bridgford

Earlier this week I was extremely lucky to be invited to the press/bloggers launch night of The Botanist, on Bridgford Road, West Bridgford. I took my lovely friend Chloe as my plus one. Having visited venues in both Birmingham and York, I was super excited to find out it was opening in my hometown. The…

Nottingham Secret Dinner Club

A couple of weeks ago an email landed in my inbox, inviting me to the first Nottingham Secret Dinner Club on 28th September. No other details, just ‘please confirm your attendance’. Well, you can imagine how excited I was, and immediately confirmed I would be joining. It wasn’t until early this week that I was…

Revolucion De Cuba – Nottingham

I bloody love Revolucion De Cuba. Where else can you be casually having a cocktail on a Saturday night and bump in to a lady dressed like an exquisite carnival queen? Revolucion De Cuba is located at 26-28 Market Street, round the corner from the Theatre Royal. The huge building is entered through a door…

Festival of Food and Drink – Clumber Park

The Festival of Food and Drink at Clumber Park is hands down one of my favourite food festivals of the year. The drive through the park is extremely long and winding, and when the sun is shining it’s a lovely drive. Parking is super close to the entrance making it very easily accessible to anyone…

Great Food and Drink festival – Lincoln Castle

As you probably know, I love food festivals. The chance to see firm favourite exhibitors and brand new companies is so appealing to me. The Lincoln castle food festival, run by Great Food & Drink festivals (the same guys that run them at Nottingham Castle and Newstead Abbey) is no different. It took us two…

Gaucho – Birmingham

When my friend Adam from Hoot Hospitality invited me to electro brunch at Gaucho, Birmingham, he promised me a day of amazing food and drink. He didn’t disappoint. The venue is absolutely stunning, golden and sparkly and extremely classy. Tables both large and small scatter the restaurant, perfect for small groups and couples alike. It’s…

Zaap Thai – Nottingham

Having spent 3 weeks in Thailand back in November, I was craving a taste of Thai yesterday lunchtime. Thai food is something I hadn’t really explored much before last year, but my holiday obviously changed that! I can’t handle a lot of heat in my food and it had made me reluctant to try new…
