Our Food Reviews
This is it, this is what my blog is all about, food reviews.

Dinner At Restaurant Zest in Derby
Tuesday 13 Jun 2017 read review

Dinner At The Tickled Trout in Barlow

New Menu At Turtle Bay, Derby
Sunday 14 May 2017 read review
Not to put too fine a point on it but this week has been an absolute swine, so my spirits were in need of a boost. The universe was obviously listening and sent a savior in the guise of Turtle Bay in Derby, as they kindly invited The Man Bird and me

Thursday 11 May 2017 read review
