Ed’s Diner A few weeks ago I made a little trip to London to visit my friend Emma who has recently moved to the big city. Our first stop was to go for dinner at Ed’s Diner at Euston station. I was keen to try their limited edition Bacon Blues Burger as I adore blue cheese, and this one with Castello cheese and bacon in sounded amazing.

As I mentioned previously, it was my birthday on Thursday, but unfortunately I was struck with my first ever bout of tonsillitis! As I’d never had it before I did fear that I was dying a little bit after Googling my symptoms (do not do this), but I’m feeling a little better now.

We went on a Saturday afternoon, and when we arrived we were shown to our table at the back of the restaurant.

It was over three months ago now (my blogging break lasted longer than I expected!) that I visited this fabulous tea room in Stratford Upon Avon. My lovely Dad took me for afternoon tea as I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself. We had been for afternoon tea in Stratford Upon Avon a few times previously – we had been to The Grosvenor Hotel but fancied a change this time. I’d heard about afternoon tea at The Fourteas on…
