Carters of Moseley, Birmingham

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of experiencing Brad Carter’s culinary delights. I’ve heard loads about Brad and his restaurant over the last few months, excited would definitely be a word I’d used to describe my emotions. The simple, classy, dark, moody restaurant is inviting and really did set the scene for this…

Needham House Hotel, Stevenage

Everyone loves a bargain and the January is the perfect time to make the most of the offers available for a sneaky night away. We found an offer for a Saturday night and couldn’t resist. Needham House is not far from the A1 (M), close to Hitchin so it’s easy to get to. It would…

Facil, Berlin

One of our Christmas treats while we were away for Christmas was to visit Facil. This amazing 2 Starred Michelin restaurant was a short walk from the Holocaust Memorial. On the fifth floor of the Mandala Hotel, you know it’s special when the doors open as you approach the restaurant, yes I’m easily pleased. The…

Two Cats Kitchen, Birmingham

I love surprises and this Friday date night might have been the best ever. I had heard about Two Cats Kitchen from The Good Food Guide but don’t know anyone who has been. When I was told where we were going I was quite excited. When you walk in it doesn’t look like it’s going to…

Tailors of Warwick, Warwick

Another perfect opportunity arose this weekend to tick another venue off from The Good Food Guide. I don’t live far from Warwick, I’ve been a few times during the day to wander around but haven’t really tried any of the food establishments. There’s a first for everything and this was it. As you might have…

Le Champignon Sauvage, Cheltenham

With two Michelin stars I had high standards and was very excited. I wasn’t disapointed at all. I think this might have some of the nicest staff and most relaxed environment I’ve been to. The dinning room is very simple and neutral with an eclectic, calming selection of art. The space is small and has an…

Kibou, Cheltenham

Walking along Regent Street it would be easy to miss this basement restaurant but keep your eyes peeled as it would be a shame to miss out. I’m a bit of a Japanese food snob after I lived there. I’ve struggled but found only a few genuinely authentic eateries at a reasonable price to satisfy…
