You should Try Thai

So, May happened. The month, not the person (June was nearly the end of May. Ha). Third year of University; so much tougher than I ever imagined! But it is all over. The best four years of my life so far. I loved almost every minute of it; the late nights in the library however,…

Guest post: Arnero Restaurant

You may have seen that the number of blog posts has dropped off in recent weeks. That is because Amy is going through the hell that is the end of 3rd year, with the delightful examinations and hand-ins that it brings. Unfortunately that means she doesn’t have time to blog, so you’re stuck with Rory…

The Coore Arms in Scruton, Northallerton

This weekend we went to visit our friends Tom and Sue up in Northallerton, so this review is of a pub we went to near there. I would recommend the area for a visit – Lovely greenery, and lots of nice countryside to relax in. Growing up in a small village really makes me appreciate…

San Carlo Cicchetti

Third year of university is so much harder than I imagined, I don’t know whether this is because I went away and worked for a year, or whether second year was just easy (probably the latter), but I have never been so stressed! Unfortunately, due to this stress I haven’t had time to do any…

Round 2: Don Marco

Round two at Don Marco (have a look at the restaurant here). You may remember a while ago we had plans to go to the acclaimed Don Marco, but after arriving and no recollection of our table, we decided it wasn’t worth the wait. But, we decided to give it another go. The ambience of…

Fabulously British weekend away in Cambridge

Weekends away really are lovely, just a few days in a new city seeing some friends is for me, the perfect way to spend it. On Saturday morning Rory and I travelled down to Cambridge to visit some friends for the weekend. I have never been to Cambridge (I think I went as a child…

Sakana Pan Asian, Manchester

Rory and I have been officially ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’ for a year, mental! How he put up with me over this year is beyond me but he has, and to celebrate we tried out Sakana in Manchester (check it out here). It is crazy the amount of incredible deals you can get in January, definitely…

Bar Lounge in Chester

Christmas. As if it’s already December. Time really does fly as you get older; rarely a moment to sit and relax and think. Today some friends and I went to visit Chester; we had a delicious lunch in Bar Lounge and a lovely walk through the Christmas markets. Last time we came to Chester we…

A weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon is a medieval market town and the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Rory and I decided to travel to Stratford to celebrate our birthdays. Having only ever been once with school, and Rory never, we thought it was a great opportunity. I love Shakespeare; I have a passion for his plays and have read and…

Hard ta-pas(s) up on

This weekend has been mental! It is my birthday on Tuesday so my boyfriend (Rory) and I went home to see my family. Saw some good friends on Friday evening down at the local pub, Saturday day spent walking my two little Jack Russell’s at Clumber Park and in the evening going to see the…

Giovanni’s Delicious Deli Lounge, bon appétit!

Sadly this week I went to review “Almost famous”, unfortunately I will not be writing a review for this place due to the 45 minute wait on our food arriving and the bland overpriced burger. Sorely disappointed and will not be going again. On a lighter note, I had a delicious lunch just off Piccadilly…

Alabama’s All American Eatery

Brunch! What a wonderful way to spend a lazy Sunday morning. I definitely think brunch is under-rated; a combination of breakfast and lunch for those days where you wake up later than normal but need food now! Today was one of those days. After staying up late having a mini Harry Potter marathon after a…
