Our Food Reviews
This is it, this is what my blog is all about, food reviews.
I only write good reviews, if I don't like somewhere then I don't write a review so have a read and give somewhere different a try next time you eat out.

Sunday 20 Aug 2017 read review
Brace yourselves dear readers, what I am about to tell you will shock you to your core. Last night, the white flag of surrender made its first appearance this year; yep, that's right The Man Bird and I were fed into comatose states.

Sunday 13 Aug 2017 read review
The last time we visited Rowley's was to sample their fine dining, tasting menu just before Christmas 2015. A lot has changed since then; the fine dining element was dropped and Rowley's concentrated on being a destination venue only for Gin lovers

Finally, The Chick has finished her exams! I bet you can guess what I'm about to say next; yep, that's right, she promptly vamoosed to a mates house, leaving us poor rents to our own devices. It has been a stressful few weeks
Mediterranean Breakfast At Cafe G In Belper
