Eats: The Ashville Steakhouse, Bristol

Hidden a little off the beaten track in Southville, but in actual fact only a few minutes from bustling North Street (and my home, super handy!) is The Ashville Steakhouse. Independently run and owned, it originally opened as The Ashville in 2014 (although many moons before it had been the ‘Try Again’) before rebranding as…

Eats & Explores: A night in Mumbles

Last weekend I decided to take advantage of having been ‘abandoned’ (Hubby and munchkins have escaped to Tropical Islands Germany, guest post from them coming soon) and whisked Mum away for her first ever AirBnB experience. Being the first Friday of the school holidays I didn’t want to drive too far, so chose Mumbles as it’s…

Explores: My Barcelona Top 5

A year ago today was the last day of my incredible Barcelona Hen Do, organised by my amazing Maid of Honour Jen and Bridesmaid Kerrie.

Many of you know all about it, but for the benefit of those like my lovely (when she wants to…

She lives in Geneva where they are seriously lacking in good Indian food, so having heard good things and spotted a Wriggle deal there, decided to try Sholay Indian Kitchen down at Cargo, Wapping Wharf. The deal consisted of two small plates and two large plates…

A bit about me…

Hey! I’m going to try and keep this short, although anyone who knows me will know I usually find that pretty hard… My name is Lizzie (obviously), I’m originally from Neath, Wales (Cymru am byth!) but I’ve lived in Bristol since 2004, minus two six month spells, one for a round the world trip in…
