Gandarias Jatetxea

Gandarias Jatetxea, San Sebastian
If you have caught the episode of ‘Munchies’ on Youtube where a group of Basque chef’s drag a young reporter around the bars of San Sebastian, you may have heard of Gandarias Jatetxea. Irene, the reporter, ended up losing her battle with Txakoli wine that night. However, we fared...

Santa Lucia, Churros

Santa Lucia, Churros, San Sebastian
The ultimate Spanish breakfast has to be churros. What exactly are they? Churros are the Spanish equivalent of doughnuts. Long sticks of fried dough, coated in sugar and served with a mug of thick hot chocolate. The breakfast of champions. Searching for churros in San Sebastian didn’t turn up too...
Ye Olde Bell Hotel, Retford
Hotels have become a bit of a specialist subject for us in recent weeks. After beginning at Sketchley Grange and enjoying dinner at The Belfry, we headed a little further north for our next experience. Ye Olde Bell sits equidistant between Sheffield and Doncaster, around an hour north of Nottingham...
The Three Crowns, Wymeswold
This review is a little too close to home. Well, I did used to live the distance of a Stuart Broad bowling action over the road from The Three Crowns pub. Speaking of Mr Broad, it’s largely down to him that the pub got a much needed renovation. Gone...
The Red Cow, Leicester Forest East
Following a recent refurbishment at The Red Cow, we were kindly invited to come and try the new menu and take a look at this new look pub, how could we refuse? The decision to accept was also helped by having driven past this smart looking establishment many times...
Jacuzzi Spa Sketchley Grange Hinckley Leicestershire
Waking up in our Junior Suite we couldn't have been happier. The sun was shining and we had a day of spa action plus a treatment each booked in. First off though, we had to try the breakfast. This is held in the restaurant area between 7am-9.30am Monday to...

VQ Bloomsbury, London
111A Great Russell Street, London 24-hour dining isn’t something we’re really accustomed to, I mean other than students, who fancies breakfast in the afternoon? Well if you are in the minority it’s no surprise really that London has you covered. There are a few establishments dotted around the capital specialising...

E Prie Rosse, Genoa

E Prie Rosse, Genoa
  Genoa’s old centre is filled with a maze of streets with a different surprise seemingly up each one. We had gone in search of dinner through the centre and came across a decent looking restaurant with a huge window at the front opening out into the street. The menu...
Adams Restaurant Birmingham
The midlands is fast becoming a hotbed of Michelin star restaurants. One of the newest additions to the collection is Adam’s Restaurant based in the heart of Birmingham - just around the corner from another starred favourite of ours, Purnell’s by chef Glynn Purnell. We dined at Adam’s for my...
Dosa World Brick Lane
If you are ravenous and in the mood for authentic curry then Brick Lane can be both a blessing and a curse. The sheer number of places laying claim to being the best in London, Britain and the World is just insane. If that’s not enough there are always...
Zam Zam Singapore Murtabak
Trawling through YouTube for inspiration on where to get great food in Singapore brought us to the popular channel belonging to Bangkok blogger Mark Wiens. Wiens had raved about a restaurant serving Indian murtabak - a filled bread, like a roti, fried until crisp - by the name of...
