Here are a few of the fantastic craft beers from the Salt Beer Factory which are available at the moment from the Hop Inn my local micro pub in Hornchurch. Due to the current situation they are only available for takeaway and delivery. The first was a nice refreshing Lime After Lime a perfect drink for in the garden on a nice summer’s day served over ice.

I’ve only had the pleasure of eating at this Turkish restaurant once and even then that was a last minute decision for a quick lunch. But even during that short experience i absolutely loved the food and the staff were very friendly so you could see why some of my friends had said I should give it a try.

I would like to pay a special tribute to this amazing patisserie in my hometown of Hornchurch. They have for the last month been working so hard during these tough times to be able to provide their usual excellent service for the local community. Also due to the current situation are having to do this with a minimal amount of staff.

I always like to try somewhere new and especially when it’s in my hometown of Hornchurch. So when I saw that Fireaway Pizza were opening a branch here I wanted to give them a try. So at the moment in this current situation and where it’s important to Support Your Local Business it seemed like a great opportunity to give them a go.

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.
