Eats & Explores: The Bower House, Shipston-on-Stour

We’re in June, which you may know (if you read the nonsense I write here or follow me on Instagram, hi if you do! ๐Ÿ‘‹), means that The Bean, aka the tiny human I’m currently growing, is officially due NEXT MONTH. (๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜…) How did that happen!? Anyway because I don’t like to do things in…

Eats: The River Grille, Bristol

The River Grille at The Bristol Hotel recently relaunched their Sunday lunch menu, replacing its carvery offering with a plated service, allowing guests to sit on their bottoms and enjoy the view (and what views they are – but I’ll get to that). I was lucky enough to be invited along to review the new…

Eats: The Vegetable Diva, Bristol

I was recently invited to visit a new venue on the Bristol food scene, The Vegetable Diva, which this month (March) has opened on the harbour side. Coming from south of the city I hopped on the cross harbour ferry just by the SS Great Britain and was deposited only a minutes walk away, which…
