Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

Like most food bloggers I have an increasingly long list of restaurants, cafes and bars I'd like to visit. My list has never had less than 20 places (in Birmingham alone) on it at one time because for every one I manage to try I find a new one to add. One of the longstanding… Continue reading Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

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

Learn to game dining experience @ Grosvenor Casino 

As someone who chose to get married in Las Vegas, I am no stranger to casinos. After a few g&ts I become quite the Blackjack fiend and enjoy a flutter, but I couldn’t claim to be an expert. With that in mind, I was buzzing to visit the Grosvenor Casino on Broad Street recently for… Continue reading Learn to game dining experience @ Grosvenor Casino

Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica

Leafy and picturesque, St Paul’s Square is slowly but surely becoming one of my favourite spots in the city. Nestled below the bustling streets of the Jewellery Quarter, this small but vibrant part of Birmingham becomes a hive of activity come the weekend; largely thanks to the array of independent bars and restaurants scattered around… Continue reading Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica

A Vegas wedding and a restorative Greek getaway  

*dusts off laptop*  Well hello there! As you can imagine the last few weeks have been a bit of a blur for me, but I’m pleased to say our wedding in Las Vegas went swimmingly (probably thanks to the endless supply of frozen margaritas) and I’m now officially a wife. Madness.  We actually landed back… Continue reading A Vegas wedding and a restorative Greek getaway

Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

I was recently invited to attend the first birthday of Rofuto, and after being promised an evening of cocktails and sushi (despite my wedding dress diet woes) I made my way gleefully to Park Regis Hotel, also the home of 1565. I'd heard a lot about this skyline restaurant before the event and was really excited to… Continue reading Happy first birthday to Rofuto (Park Regis Hotel)

Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

To say I had a lovely evening on Friday would be an understatement and a half, I can tell you. Having received an invitation to attend an Edinburgh Gin event (you can read all about the last one here) at Moor Hall Hotel & Spa, I had a feeling I might be in for a… Continue reading Edinburgh Gin dinner @ Moor Hall Hotel & Spa

A Taste of Vietnam @ Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome 

There are some evenings that you just know are going to stay with you for a long time, and on Thursday I was lucky enough to have one such night. Having been invited by Brum Bloggers to enjoy dinner and a performance of Miss Saigon at The Hippodrome, to say I was excited was an… Continue reading A Taste of Vietnam @ Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome

Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden 

I have a confession: before the Blogger Banquet event recently I hadn't actually eaten at Chung Ying Garden. I've walked past it a million times over the years as I've trundled through China Town, (usually on my way to Nightingales after too many adult lemonades) but had never made it through the bright red doors. That… Continue reading Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden
