Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

Last night I celebrated Friday the best way I know how: slurping beer surrounded by meat. To put this into some kind of context, I attended Digbeth Oktoberfest at The Old Crown, which saw the beer garden transformed into a Bavarian themed bar packed with tasty food and beer galore.  Offering an array of theme-appropriate food… Continue reading Oktoberfest @ The Old Crown, Digbeth

A laid back Indian dining experience @ Tamatanga  

If like me you've been walking past the colourful boards hiding Tamatanga for the last month (and been dying to get inside) this week I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek.  The latest 'Indian streetfood' style restaurant to pop up in Birmingham city centre, Tamatanga is the new sibling of the award-winning restaurant… Continue reading A laid back Indian dining experience @ Tamatanga

A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

If you ask any foodie in Birmingham where to go for epic Middle Eastern grub, the chances are the name Damascena might crop up. And when I say might I mean absolutely will. Having very much enjoyed my visit to the flagship cafe in Moseley Village earlier this year, I had high expectations of the… Continue reading A Middle Eastern feast @ Damascena, Temple Row

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.

Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party

You may have seen my previous blog revealing the first pictures from inside the newest restaurant to hit John Bright Street: Nakira Bar & Grill. It looked pretty swish, so I was delighted to receive a VIP invite to the official launch party, which took place last week.  Despite opening officially earlier this month the… Continue reading Nakira Bar & Grill VIP launch party

American comfort food @ The Smoke Haus

It's no secret I love comfort food. From loaded burgers and footlong hotdogs to gooey mac n cheese; I'm all about the stodge. My waistline doesn't thank me for this love affair, of course, but my stomach is usually quite grateful, and frankly I listen to that more than my skinny jeans anyway. For that… Continue reading American comfort food @ The Smoke Haus

Steak and cocktails @ Mr White’s English Chophouse

Having meticulously planned a weekend of surprises for my future husband - including a visit from 6 of his good friends from back home - I was feeling kind of smug with myself recently. I was pretty convinced in advance I'd arranged a fairly perfect weekend for Ian, but it managed to get even better… Continue reading Steak and cocktails @ Mr White’s English Chophouse

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

Adjacent to Victoria Square at the far end of Colmore Row, Nosh & Quaff has made quite a name for itself since its opening in 2015. Serving up comfort food with the volume turned up, the independent eatery invites guests to get dirty with their dishes in a stylish setting. Part of the Lasan Group… Continue reading Getting messy @ Nosh & Quaff
