Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

I must confess I don't visit Edgbaston half as much as I should, a realisation I had confirmed during a recent visit to The White Swan, set just off Harborne Road. An upmarket pub that's brimming with character, The White Swan manages to be both stylish and homely, thanks in part to the extensive refurbishment… Continue reading Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city. In my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

Steak club @ Bar + Block

After a brilliant, but incredibly busy, weekend I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself at the start of last week. Don't get me wrong, most of it was self inflicted (my hen do was epic; I thought I was dying until Wednesday) but I was most definitely in need of a post-weekend pick… Continue reading Steak club @ Bar + Block

Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison 

As you know I get married in just two months, so I've been busy booking my pre-wedding beautification. Being the lazy tomboy I am, I require some serious sprucing prior to getting hitched, so I've got a whole 4 hours of exfoliation, massages, manicures and pedicures (and a fizzy lunch, obviously) planned at Hotel du… Continue reading Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison

Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

July saw the launch of a summer menu at Cosy Club so I went along to sample some of the new dishes available alongside a few cocktails. For those unfamiliar with this bar come restaurant, it's an eclectic mix of plush furnishing, peculiar paintings, and over the top decor. It manages to feel like a vintage boutique-esq… Continue reading Summer menu tasting @ Cosy Club

Christmas in July @ Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill

A few weeks ago an invite arrived in my inbox to visit Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill on Level 25 of The Cube. The reason? Christmas.. obviously. Despite being July, and about 25 degrees on the day I got the email, the invitation was to come to Chez Marco for a summer lunch… Continue reading Christmas in July @ Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill
