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.

British Polo Gin and Raisthorpe Manor Yorkshire Tonic
Wednesday 20 Mar 2019 read review
Some things are just meant to be together, like the proverbial horse and carriage; Gin and Tonic for example. I recently went to The Fine Food North Show in Harrogate and got talking to a couple of the exhibitors who just happened to be showcasing
Dinner At Cucina Italian Restaurant in Derby
Wednesday 20 Mar 2019 read review
It's been yonks since The Man Bird, Mummy Bird and I all went to an Italian restaurant to eat, so we were all looking forward to seeing what Cucina in Derby had to offer. We played it safe

Trying Out The New Nutty Chocolate Spread From Nutural World
Saturday 16 Mar 2019 read review
You may recall that I sampled some of the products from Nutural World last year, after The Man Bird had been to The Fine Food North Show; Pistachio Butter, Almond Butter and Cashew Butter. Well, we both went this year and I got to meet
El Contador Mexican Takeover Of Elements, Derby
Thursday 14 Mar 2019 read review
There seems to be a movement within the food and beverage industry for giving other businesses a hand up and letting them take over a venue; great idea in my opinion, give us customers a chance to experience something a little different!
Sampling Broon and Ketch from Daddy Cools Chilli Sauce
Tuesday 12 Mar 2019 read review
It's well documented that The Man Bird and me (His Nibs especially) like spicy foods, and the fact that we have a 'try anything' mentality. I like to think that it's this broad-mindedness that encourages food producers and restaurateurs alike
Sampling Coffees From The Rounton Coffee Roasters
Saturday 9 Mar 2019 read review
Not going to lie; as I type this, the weather is dreadful! Hardly the perfect start to a relaxed weekend eh folks? Luckily salvation in the form of coffee from Rounton Coffee Roasters arrived earlier in the week – hurrah for coffee!
Dinner At The China Rose Chinese Restaurant in Matlock Bath
Sunday 3 Mar 2019 read review
When My Daddy Bird is away, Mummy Bird (quite fairly) can't be bothered to faff about cooking for herself, so we use it as an opportunity to go out for a Flock Meal.
Sampling Chocolates From The Magnificent Chocolate Company
Thursday 28 Feb 2019 read review
Sometimes I really do have to pinch myself at my good fortune; a (unpaid, but fab all the same!) job that lets me sample a massive variety of foods and drinks that I wouldn’t otherwise get to try.

Out For Dinner At Revolucion De Cuba, Belfast
Sunday 24 Feb 2019 read review

Breakfast At The Railway Tea Rooms In Belper
Thursday 21 Feb 2019 read review
As well as the main shopping area along King Street, Belper has lots of treasures tucked away on its side streets; we were invited along to one such venue, Railway Tea Rooms
Steak Dinner At Bennett's Hotel & Restaurant, Long Eaton
Tuesday 19 Feb 2019 read review
Props to The Man Bird, he has yet again pulled a good deal out of the bag! Every so often Groupon do a deal in our area that we think yup, that's the one for us
Dinner At The Red Lion in Underwood near Bagthorpe
Sunday 17 Feb 2019 read review
The Man Bird and I are no strangers to The Pub People's venues, having visited a couple of others in their chain. One of their recent acquisitions, the Red Lion at Underwood near Bagthorpe
Tasty Treats from the Peckish Artisan Kitchen
Monday 11 Feb 2019 read review
It's always a pleasure to support local up-coming talent and you don't get much more local than Tam and Lisa of Peckish Artisan Kitchen; they're based just a few miles up the road from Beak HQ!
Back To The Orangery At St Elphin's Park To Try The New Menu
Sunday 10 Feb 2019 read review
The Man Bird and I have visited The Orangery restaurant at St Elphin's Park in Darley Dale a few times now, and it's lovely to see how things are constantly changing and evolving.
A Tasty Treat From DoughNotts in Derby
Wednesday 6 Feb 2019 read review
The irresistible appeal of doughnuts can be summed up in this quote I found on the internet, I think: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, except doughnuts; then skinny can go **** itself".
Dinner At The Recently Refurbished Angel & Harlequin Bistro, Spinkhill
Sunday 3 Feb 2019 read review
After about 5.5 years in the food review game not much phases or shocks me anymore, but His Nibs and I came away from Angel and Harlequin Bistro in Spinkhill
An Early Bird Special At Fusion Of India, Derby
Wednesday 30 Jan 2019 read review

A Special Dinner with Mim at Simply Thai, Buxton

Righto, hands up who made the commitment to do Veganuary? Now, put your hands up those that are starting to struggle and can feel their resolve wavering. Apparently
Out For Breakfast At Elements Tea & Coffee House, Derby
Wednesday 16 Jan 2019 read review
This may come as a shock to my Mummy Bird, but it's official - I do as I'm told. "Breakfast like a King (or Queen in my case)" is the saying, and that's exactly what His Nibs and I did!

Steak Night At Porterhouse By Barlows, Annesley
Sunday 6 Jan 2019 read review
They say that "there ain't no party like an S Club party", so His Nibs and I set off to see if that's true. Now before you all think I've gone (even more) mad, let me just clarify that
Sunday Lunch At The Yard, Derby
Tuesday 1 Jan 2019 read review
Ah, the Great British Institution that is the Sunday Lunch/ Sunday Roast; what would life be without it? Everyone has an opinion on what makes a fab lunch, and our flock is no different;
