September 26, 2017

      I often get asked if I miss bacon?? The simple answer is NO. I thought I would: the delicious smell of it cooking on a Sunday morning, its undisputable ‘hangover curing properties’ and its ability to flavour just about any pasta dish. However the answer is still NO. That is because I now … Read More

Hen Party

Hen Party

September 20, 2017

    I recently attended a hen party in Devon. I felt obliged to blog about it as it is so very rare to find caterers that cater for very specific dietary needs. Within our hen party we had dairy free, vegetarian, gluten free and  a whole host of allergies to boot! Following a day … Read More

Toxicity!!!

July 23, 2017

    I have put this venue in my local tab but such was our experience there that I felt it deserved its own blog post. Upon entering what can only be described as a unimposing, intriguing building, we were met with a warm welcome. Not a ‘We’re a restaurant and you’re paying’ kind of … Read More
