I was recently invited along to try out the new summer menu from The Restaurant at Broadway Casino in Birmingham. I went along with other bloggers Terri, Tereza, and Charl so we had a nice girlie catch up! The Restaurant is a fine dining Italian restaurant that is situated inside the casino itself, and just a few steps away from the games area. Broadway Casino is located inside the Broadway Plaza complex which also includes a cinema, bowling, and a few fast food/high street chain eateries. It’s a great entertainment venue, but I found it was quite quiet on our…

Over the long Bank Holiday weekend last month, Gavin and I went to London and stayed in the Hub by Premier Inn hotel on Brick Lane for 2 nights, so I thought I’d do a review.

We also had drink and dinner booked at Icebar London (check out my blog post) which was probably the highlight of our trip!  Hub by…

I paid an additional £5 per night for breakfast which was very worthwhile as it was the perfect way to set ourselves up in the morning and great value for money. I’d been wanting to visit Edinburgh for a little while as so many people have recommended it to me. I was desperate to go…

To celebrate my new job, a few weeks ago I went out for dinner to The Knife and Cleaver pub in Houghton Conquest. The award winning pub, restaurant and hotel is located in the small village just outside of Bedford, opposite a beautiful old church.   The Knife and Cleaver The pub is a beautiful red brick building and the decor inside is very homely and cosy, with wooden furniture and simple furnishings. When we arrived we sat in the bar area for a drink before our meal. They do a range of different drinks including cocktails and mocktails, various gins…
