There are so many foodie places I want to visit on Gloucester Road in Bristol but rarely find the time to get up there. We live near the SS Great Britain and are surrounded by great bars and restaurants so often opt for something closer to home. Sometimes though, when you hear of a place… Read More Ceres Coffee, Stokes Croft
We eat out a fair bit. What can we say- it’s something we enjoy! Sometimes though, after a hard or long day, you can’t beat a takeaway can you?! No getting ready to go out, no travelling, no food preparation or cooking, and minimal tidying up; it’s win, win, win, win! As if that wasn’t… Read More Takeaway you don’t need to feel guilty about!
You don’t get much for free these days do you? A smile or a piece of advice if you’re lucky; both wonderful things, but unlikely to keep you entertained for the day. Thankfully there is still one great way to spend a day which is completely free, and as Winter retreats and Spring starts to… Read More These boots were made for walking

Fast forward to now and burgers have become a bit of an expert field. You can tell the difference between a good and bad burger, and it’s… Read More Our top Bristol Burgers
It’s that time of year where we lock away our BBQs that have barely been used over the Summer and wonder why we ever bought one in the first place, preparing ourselves for the long Winter. Trying to get into the mindset that there are definitely some things to look forward to over Winter, I’m… Read More The Bunch of Grapes, Bradford on Avon
James and I are vegetarian about 5 days out of 7. It’s not something we’ve actively decided, it’s just that we don’t tend to buy meat or cook it whilst at home. Whilst I could never give up meat entirely, (a life without burgers and bacon is not even worth thinking about), but I think… Read More Root, Cargo 1 – Bristol
