Eggs Benedict with Ham at Mannion & Co. Cafe, York

Breakfast at Mannion & Co., York

During my recent weekend break in York I made the most of the food and drink that the city had to offer, particularly with regard to the independent cafes to ensure local businesses were supported. The first place that I visited was Mannion & Co. on Blake Street for breakfast as […]

A Weekend Break in York

This weekend was Sarah’s birthday and so I surprised her with a weekend break to York. I’d been to York previously when I was very young and so had some faint memories of the city whereas Sarah had never been so it was shaped up to be something fun for […]

Dining at Zizzi, The Hub Milton Keynes

Weekends for me are all about relaxing and enjoying the money that I bust my gut to earn 5 days per week. This usually comes in the form of eating out in and around Milton Keynes. This Sunday was no different and so I decided to head to Zizzi Italian […]

Dining at Aqua, The Hub Milton Keynes

If you’re a follower of my blog you’ll know that I head out for dinner in Milton Keynes fairly often. I like to mix things up a little and so where possible I try to head to new restaurants and pubs to see what I’ve been missing out on all […]

House of Ho

Vietnamese Dining at The House of Ho, London

I recently experienced my first proper taste of Vietnamese food by heading to The House of Ho restaurant on Percy Street in Fitzrovia, London. Vietnamese food is certainly not something that immediately jumps to mind when family or friends suggest going out for dinner so when I was invited for dinner with […]

So it’s that time of the year again. Christmas is done, all of the relatives have been put up with, too much food and drink has been consumed and you’re wishing there were more days between now and going back to work in January. Yep, it’s New Years resolution time. […]

Dinner at The Garage in Buckingham

Last night I headed out for dinner at The Garage in Buckingham to celebrate a friends birthday. The restaurant hasn’t been open for long and so it offered us the opportunity to try out somewhere new. First things first, sort out an outfit for dinner. With it being a cold evening […]
