The New Spring Menu at Byron Burger

May 10, 2018

In my eight years of food blogging I couldn’t tell you how many times my friends have asked me to make them my plus one on a review. But I could tell you how many times I have met their requests:

None. (Whoops)

My First Taste of Spring at The Swan, Salford

April 3, 2018

“But what if you don’t like the food? What do you do?!”

It’s a question I’m often asked by friends, family and strangers. And it’s a valid one. I’m being invited to experience a menu and to share the experience with anyone who finds their way to my corner of the internet. So if the food is awful it’s a bit of a predicament, right?

Discovering Warwick With Peach Pubs, Part 1

March 12, 2018

As we strolled past Warwick Castle and stopped to poke our heads through the iron gates and peer up at the flags above the turrets, I turned to Q and said: “Did you come here with your school when you were little?” to which he answered “Of course”.

A Review of Buy Me Once

November 6, 2017

If there’s one thing that I absolutely cannot stand, more so than the average person, it’s waste.

For better or worse, it plays such a huge part in my behaviour. It’s the reason I would rather clear my plate and feel uncomfortably full than scrape perfectly good food into the bin. It’s the reason I have bags and boxes and utterly useless packaging stuffed under my bed and in my cupboards. It’s why I continue to wear the same old (but perfectly good) fur coat year after year whilst my far more fashionable friends sport something new each season.
