Spring Market Cheese Festival @ The Bond, Digbeth


Events, Pop ups

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but I like cheese. I like cheese in all its glorious forms: melted, baked, sliced, diced. Whatever, if it involves fromage I want a slice. With that in mind, it was a given I’d end up at the Spring Market Cheese Festival at The Bond this weekend, […]

Smart weekend brunch options @ Gusto, Colmore Row


restaurants, Review

I’ve had mixed experiences dining at Gusto, I have to admit. Thankfully my visit last month for brunch was a really positive affair and has reaffirmed my fondness for the place.

Bottomless brunch @ Lost and Found


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lost and Found and this new-look version is top banana. Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill officially reopens Friday March 2nd, but last week some friends and I checked out the newly renovated bar to try the updated bottomless brunch. It’s a hard life.. no really it is, […]

Coffee and crepes @ Madeleine, The Cube


Cafes, Review

Cheese Fest Birmingham @ The Custard Factory


Events, Ramblings

It will come as little surprise to literally anyone that knows me I attended Cheese Fest Birmingham last week. The two day festival of fromage took place at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, and offered cheese fans the opportunity to.. well, eat a shit load of cheese, basically. I joined my foodie pal Fay on […]

Sunday lunch @ Chez Mal, Malmaison 


Hotels, restaurants, Review

I have a well documented love affair with Malmaison, and having discovered my foodie friend Fay (try saying that with your mouthful) hadn’t tried the delectable Sunday Brunch the place is so hyped for I immediately booked us a table. The three course feast at Chez Mal starts with soup and access to the Chef’s […]
