Great service and interesting menu – Rowbarge

The Rowbarge is a reliable place to eat, good pub food with a twist. It is particularly lovely in the summer as it has a huge garden with the canal in front and is very popular with walkers and boaters (people not hats). We have learnt to book now as its popularity has increased with […]

Yew Tree – Highclere – completely turned around now MPW has gone – hah!

My delightful PA Carole drove me to the Yew Tree at Highclere a couple of weeks ago (I need driving as I have a broken wrist but it doesn’t stop me eating).  First impressions were friendly staff, water with cucumber in it without being asked (always a bonus but double bonus with the cucumber). […]

Not so Punchy

I met up with one of my lovely bubbly sisters, Beth, while I was in London recently and checked out one pub (not sister) that was available on a discount card. Punch Tavern in Fleet Street rang a bell so that is where we aimed for. It looked like a wonderfully ornate old London pub […]

An Old Friend revisited – White Hart

I was released temporarily last week and was trying to go past The White Hart in Hampstead Norreys but was unable to. A weird magnetic force of remembered tastiness propelled me in to the delish food pub for an early lunch. Because this visit was a bit sudden and impulsive I forgot to pick up […]

Wahoo, Wellington Arms, what a find!

  How happy am I? I have just visited The Wellington Arms and feel like I have found an unknown treasure. Madly it was at the top of my places I wanted to review, as recommended by many of the other chefs I have reviewed, but for some reason I had never gone there. I […]

Best Tasting Menu – Enthralling and a Must Eat @bladeboneinn

This is incredible, in little old leafy Chapel Row, home to a library in a telephone box, a beautiful and quirky interior design shop and a coffee shop. That is it. Oh except for The Bladebone Inn. This pub is run by a genius chef, Kiren Puri, who is supported by talented and patient staff […]

The Angel – Woolhampton – excellent food has returned and some!

Oh I am so happy, this used to be a regular haunt of ours but a couple of years ago went downhill rapidly. Various dodgy dealings were involved that I know very little about but worst of all the food became rubbish. Now as you know there are may stabilities in my life, one, I […]

Bladebone October 13 New menu new customers, thank you blog!

First of all such exciting news. We went to the Bladebone on Saturday to discover that a lovely couple had visited earlier in the week because they follow my blog!! Please identify yourselves, I am thrilled and delighted, mostly because I feel I am writing this for myself, friends and family, particularly the piggier ones […]

It is here, the new menu from Darren at The White Hart, Hamstead Marshall!!

At last I am allowed to talk about the new menu. It was with great excitement that I went along to the White Hart last week, happy that I was going to be able to input into the tasting (and input into my stomach). I honestly think that the White Hart is extremely lucky to […]
