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


The Lenchford Inn, Worcester

A quick post today regarding a recent visit I had to The Lenchford Inn. Technically this place isn't in Birmingham (there's nothing technical about it; it's in Worcestershire) but it's a lovely riverside setting for dinner, so I thought I'd pop a bit of information on here in case it's of interest/use to anyone.  The… Continue reading The Lenchford Inn, Worcester


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


Electro Brunch @ Gaucho

With my hen do this weekend coming I had every intention of having a 'quiet one' on Saturday, but instead I accepted an invitation to a bloggers event at Gaucho. The coveted Electro Brunch - a weekly all you can eat and drink thrill ride - has been on my 'to do' list since I visited… Continue reading Electro Brunch @ Gaucho


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

This weekend saw the welcome return of Colmore Row Food Festival; celebrating and showcasing the best restaurants, bars, cafes and bistros this fab part of Brum has to offer. The two-day event - which annually takes over Victoria Square - took place over the 30th June and 1st July, and featured stalls from some of the most popular… Continue reading Photos from Colmore Row Food Festival


Beef and Malbec Masterclass @ Gaucho 

There are very few things in life I love more than steak and red wine (sorry Ian) so I was beyond excited to be invited to attend the Beef and Malbec Masterclass at Gaucho this week.  An exclusive event for press and foodie bloggers, the intimate evening presented a wonderful opportunity to meet Gaucho’s Master… Continue reading Beef and Malbec Masterclass @ Gaucho
