On a sunny morning recently, I headed over to the beautiful Chipping Norton, to visit Paul who is the master behind the Cotswold Baking. On a busy farm he has his own unit where the magic happens, and I walked into the kitchen to delicious smells of sweet delights, and rows of tasty looking cakes… Continue reading Cotswold Baking
How do you think you could spend a great week? I certainly had one of the best weeks of my life last week, and I’ll tell you all how in my 7-day diary below. But why am I doing this you ask? Have you ever tried a Bathtub gin? If not, you’re missing out! Bathtub… Continue reading A Week Well Spent with Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin
Barnsley House.. what an absolute little slice of heaven in the Cotswolds. I continue to be amazed at the incredibly beautiful towns and villages that creep up on us in the area which I live in, there is so much to explore, and I feel so lucky to have it all on my doorstep. You… Continue reading Barnsley House – The Cotswolds
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!

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

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

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
