Who has a double bass on a Tuesday? Azita in Hitchen!

  Sooo I am in Hitchin having medical treatments that you really don’t want to know about!  Tonight I tried a lovely tapas bar round the corner from my hotel  Indeed I could probably roll back if I ate too much.  I love tapas, I am a slow eater and I love little bits of […]

Henry & Joes such an amazing meal

  We are so lucky in Newbury to have some great restaurants like The Newbury and now this fantastic pop up.  Different people operate different nights and tonight we went to Henry & Joes Dining Table @16BartholomewStreet.  The food is first class on every night regardless of who is operating that night and it is […]

Lussos, a great find in Newbury, amazing Pizza and more

OK this is embarrassing.  I have been recommended to review Lussos in Newbury for so long but haven’t made it there.  However we were lucky enough to present a prize to A Plan Insurance for winning the bowling competition and would you believe it, we had to walk past Lussos.  I say walk past, we […]

Michelin take note of The Newbury, why did I only have one starter!

  Another place I love and will support is The Newbury pub, not a chain and run by some magnificent people.  I have followed Darren (not in a stalkerish way!) for many years and it is great to see his influence coming through and being encouraged by the lovely Pete Lumber.  By the way I […]

New Menu at The Bladebone – whoop whoop

  How supportive am I of my favourite restaurants?  Very is the answer.  These are my guidelines, I try only to blog food that I love, the occasional exception is where I am taken by surprise.  Also I blog whereever I am so obviously there is a huge Berkshire/Bristol bias but next month will be […]

Vineyard, Robby wasn’t here today but his influence was

Dear readers you know my favourite places to eat and just by looking through the blog you will see how often the Vineyard is mentioned.  Hell, it was the place I chose to get married, indeed my only regret of the whole day is that as the bride I had to come later and missed […]

This is a wonderfully characterful hotel – Berwick Lodge

This was my second visit to Berwick Lodge in Bristol  https://www.berwicklodge.co.uk/.  This is such an incredible hotel, totally indvidual and appealing.  It would be nice if it had a pool but it has a huge plus on the spa side, more later and very exciting.  The whole site is beautiful, swings in the trees, fountains, […]

Wellington Arms, such a Buzz

I have been to the Wellington Arms in Baughurst before.  I always compare it to a little Manoir in that it has the most wonderful home grown vegetables, its own livestock and sells home made bread and preserves. In fact I am not sure the Manoir does the selling bit of home made bread.  The […]

A meal of fine distinction at The Harrow

Currently my finest treat is to be taken to The Harrow at Little Bedwyn.  I have never had a bad meal indeed never an unsatisfying course, everything delights the senses.  This time I went with Tony and two great friends and they all had the wine pairing.  They hadnt had this before and loved it.  […]

The Red House – Valentines deliciousness
