It was only a couple of months ago that we popped in for a quick thali lunch and because we enjoyed the food so much we couldn’t wait to come back. During this time I noticed they were doing a Biryani Supper Club on a sunday afternoon. This was to be perfect as I had my birthday coming up and would be a great way to celebrate and indeed how right I was.

Having seen Ruth on Great British Menu we were delighted to hear the news that she was to become head chef of the fine dining restaurant upstairs at the Princess of Shoreditch in east london. This would also be a great location for us to be able to visit as it’s on Paul Street and only a ten minute walk from Liverpool Street station. Unfortunately due to the current situation we were unable to get here any sooner than on saturday. But I’m delighted to say it was worth the wait.

Well here we go again. Another visit to Core and once again the superlatives are endless. If you could give a restaurant four michelin stars then I’d be knocking on their door right now because that’s personally what I feel they deserve. This was an afternoon of stunning food , amazing service , excellent wine and fabulous cocktails that got my birthday celebrations of to a truly outstanding start.

Cote de Beouf at Haywards

It’s always a pleasure when the Cote de Beouf is on the menu at Haywards as it’s a fabulous cut of meat. Once again the meat was perfectly cooked and came with a braised ox cheek , seasonal vegetables , yorkshire pudding , mushroom & roast potatoes making it one of the best roast dinners around.

As an Italian food lover this restaurant will always be a highlight of my dining calendar and after saturday’s visit there is no reason whatsoever to change that. The food is absolutely fabulous and matched by the best service and great wine. I can honestly say that I am already looking to when I can go back.

We first met Steven & Ami at their previous establishment the Oxford Blue Pub where we’d visited a few times and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond their control they had to start looking for a new place. This led them to taking over the Bailiwick Pub which is literally about five minutes drive away. What you’ll hear now is how you can turn around a situation and come back stronger.

We’ll what can I say about July other than it’s been a blockbuster month of absolutely delicious desserts. So sit back and feast your eyes on the vast array of delectable delights.

When we last popped into Da Vinci’s at the be beginning of July owner Craig knew it had been our anniversary the week before. With this he gave us a fabulous gift. It was a voucher for a complimentary meal for two people. This was an amazing gesture on his part to which we thanked him most dearly and looked forward to coming in at the earliest opportunity to celebrate.

This was without doubt a truly amazing return to Frog by Adam Handling where we were treated to a sensational dining experience. From the moment we arrived until we left the food , wine & service was of the highest standard that left us with a feeling of anticipation to return once again soon.
