How do you feel about a battered Creme Egg? When I was invited to Simpsons to try it it out, I was initially unsure. I am aware it's something they've been offering for a few years, but it's never really taken my fancy (much like a battered Mars Bar), but always happy to try new… Continue reading Happy Easter From Simpsons Fish & Chips!
Last weekend, we were invited for an evening at The Stable in Cheltenham, with a couple of friends. I’ve not been to visit the Stable in a while, and Saturday night made me question why - the food is great, the staff are incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is perfect, especially when they have live… Continue reading The Stable – Cheltenham
In Gloucestershire, we are blessed to have a number of wonderful gin, and other alcohol brands dotted around the county. You could almost make a tour of it. Perhaps this is part of the reason I've grown such an affinity to gin over the past few years, and I was so excited to be invited… Continue reading Sibling Distillery – Cheltenham
A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to try out Koffman & Mr. Whites - the new restaurant which opened in The Abbey Hotel in Bath, in October 2018. We decided to make a weekend of it, and headed down for a night away, and booked in our table at the first venture between… Continue reading Koffman & Mr White’s – Bath
A roundup of some of my favourite subscription boxes, perfect for the person who has everything!
Have you been to visit The Indian Guy yet? If you haven’t - he’s a must go see! Relatively new to the Cheltenham (and beyond) food scene, Jin and his wife Esther are cooking up some of the greatest Indian street food I’ve tasted, and it’s all vegetarian (trust me, as an avid meat eater,… Continue reading The Indian Guy – Cheltenham and Beyond
You might think of Holee Cow as a burger restaurant (and one of the best in Cheltenham at that). You would be correct. However, there’s more to them than that. They also do an insane brunch menu (and don’t forget Holee Clucker is coming soon – now that I am truly excited about) and they… Continue reading Holee Cow does Brunch – Cheltenham
It's no secret at all that I LOVE the bottle of sauce in Cheltenham (and their sister pubs in Oxford). They win at life, every time. The burgers and pizzas are both equally awesome. Well there's something else in town that's getting the people of Cheltenham talking, and for all the right reasons. They've got… Continue reading Bottle of Sauce Does Brunch – Cheltenham
Last weekend I was invited to the first ever tour of Dunkertons Cider Company. They've been open for a few months as a shop, but on Saturday they had their first ever tour and tasting, so we went along to try it out. You drive into the cidery on an industrial estate just on the… Continue reading Dunkertons Cider Company
A couple of months ago I was invited to The Churchill Arms in Paxford for one of their monthly food & drink pairing evenings. I must say, when I visit places like this I realise how little travelled I am in the Cotswolds, and am excited that I still have so many lovely places to… Continue reading The Churchill Arms – Paxford
