Hello everyone it is with regret but due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation I have to make the following announcement.

Due to the forced closure of restaurants , cafes & pubs I have made the decision to put my blog on hold.

So there will be No new food reviews for you to enjoy and No more amazing desserts to drool over.

Hopefully this situation will end sooner rather than later.

I will still be around on social media posting as many food pics as I can

Take Care & Stay Safe

All the Best


Despite the month of March being cut short by Coronavirus and all restaurants now having to close I still managed to enjoy four amazing desserts. I hope you like this small selection and hope to be back to normal soon. Stay Safe everyone x

This was our first visit to the Greenman and I can honestly say that it will not be our last. Set high up in the Ongar countryside on School Road is where you’ll find the Greenman. The front of the pub is designed in a U shaped with a courtyard in the middle. Then at the back there is a conservatory used as a dining area plus an outside terrace.

This was our fourth visit to Da Terra and based on the food and service we received on saturday it has to rate as our best. Since gaining the honour of holding a Michelin Star you can clearly see how they are now pushing the boundaries with the food to an even higher level.

This was a fabulous weekend where we got to spend time at three of our favourite places. We started on Saturday when we headed to Epping to have lunch with our great friends Haywards Restaurant and we were in for an absolute treat.

Parkside Brasserie

We’d been wanting to visit this French Brasserie which is situated in our neighbouring town of Elm Park after hearing some great feedback from friends about the quality of the food. We had also heard that the service which although is friendly could be better.

It’s not often we get the opportunity to stay local on a Saturday and spend it in our hometown of Hornchurch but this weekend that’s exactly what we did. The start of the day didn’t go so well as we intended to have brunch in French’s Cafe but due to their popularity they were full and also it was quite a wait for food.
