Eats: Lido Spa & Restaurant, Bristol

I’d wanted to visit the restaurant at the Lido in Bristol for some time, and at the beginning of the month finally went along with my husband Chris, father-in-law Al and step-mother-in-law, Jan. We had a voucher (shock!) that we had purchased during their Advent event in December, which for £30 per couple entitled us…

Eats: The Ox, Clifton

Last month I went for a birthday meal with @jen.on.tour to The Ox on Whiteladies Road, Bristol.

Eats: Sfoglina Rina, Bologna

Eats: Bottomless Pizza and Prosecco @ Sup & Chow, Cheltenham

The Deal It’s…

Eats: Porthmeor Cafe, St Ives

Anyone that knows me or reads any of the nonsense I put on Facebook and Insta will know that I love St Ives! As in REALLY love it. Since meeting Chris in 2014 and being introduced to this little seaside town (claimed as the sunniest place in the UK), we’ve been at least once a…

Eats & Explores: Venice doesn’t have to be pricey!

Confession time. I love Venice! Many people don’t. People will often say it’s smelly, there are too many tourists, it’s too expensive, or perhaps all three. I disagree! The smelly thing – I’ve now been twice when it’s very hot (July and an unseasonably warm September) and another time in the rain (also September) and…
