Uninspiring pub grub @ Bacchus Bar


Bars & Pubs, Review

With a trip to the cinema to see the preview of Baby Driver later on that night, Ian and I decided to head to Bacchus Bar on New Street. Squirrelled away down two flights of stairs in Burlington Arcade, Bacchus Bar is a wonderfully weird little spot that offers traditional pub grub and a vast variety […]

Summer menu tasting @ Marmalade The Rep


Events, restaurants, Review

Marmalade The Rep I like The REP for its on sight restaurant/bar, Marmalade The Rep which I’ve use for client meetings and also visited several times with friends for pre-theatre cocktails, so I was delighted to be invited to try the new menu.

Tiny burgers @ Handmade Burger Co 


restaurants, Review

Disappointment at Handmade Burger Co. Before I dive in to this post I should say from the off that I appreciate going to a burger place and attempting to be healthy is a bit redundant but, in my defence, I’ve been to Handmade Burger Co before and eaten like a beast, so I’m more than […]

A working lunch @ Bella Italia New Street


restaurants, Review

Bella Italia New Street In the middle of the week I found myself in town running a few errands before a meeting; having just 45 minutes spare we decided on Bella Italia New Street. This is part of the wider chain of Italian inspired restaurants and is somewhere I used to eat in a lot […]

Sunshine and salads @ Fazeley Social


Cafes, Review

The small Floodgate Street entrance could be easy to miss but once inside the food smells hit you and you realise you’ve […]

Decent pub grub @ The Loft Gay Village


Bars & Pubs, Review

The Loft Gay Village Thanks to my Independent Birmingham card I came across The Loft in the Gay Village, just behind Nightingales, but couldn’t believe the transformation it had undergone. Mind made up I dragged Ian along. The Loft is a really lovely bar come eatery, with separate areas for diners looking for a slightly […]

Why I love eating @ Pho


Ramblings

I’m a big fan of Pho based in Grand Central. It’s my go to place when I’m in the mood for something tasty but vaguely healthy, and I often take myself off to the Vietnamese ‘street food’ restaurant for a working lunch. In fact, I like it so much I’ve taken my boyfriend, my mum, […]
