  • Bill's Hammersmith

    Bill’s Hammersmith Restaurant Review

    Generally avoiding big chains we reluctently tried out Bill’s Hammersmith. After a day walking around central London on Good Friday, we bizarrely struggled to find a table for 8 people around 6.00pm. Everywhere we went they asked if we had a booking! Who knew that in jam-packed Covent Garden you had to book? OK. Everyone […]

    The New New Bengal Indian Restaurant in Gosforth is the refurbished result from the New Bengal Restaurant.

    Duck Leg and Red Currant and Wine Sauce

    After a disastrous trip to the meat shop, I was forced to drag myself to Tesco. We really fancied Duck with come form of sauce and it was my challenge for the Saturday night. We weren’t falling for the trip our kids pulled last time either. “I don’t want any I don’t like it” followed […]

  • Staiths Food Market

    Staiths Food Market

    When my work colleague Sally mentioned she was organising the Staiths Food Market with her friend Liz Hall, we were keen to pop down and see what it was all about.  It’s great to support new ventures and to explore different parts of our local area that we wouldn’t necessarily think of going to. Furthermore the promise of […]

  • The WIld Boar Inn Bowness

    Kendal Camping – Day 3 – Kendal and Wild Boar Inn

    Packing up Sadly our long bank holiday adventure had come to an end and it was time to pack up and head back to Newcastle.  As the weather was still gorgeous and so rubbish back at home we decided to spend as much of the Bank holiday Monday in the Lakes, soaking up the precious rays. […]
