Restaurant review: Turtle Bay, Derby

Restaurant review: Turtle Bay, Derby

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? If you’re nodding in smug satisfaction – well done you.

I can’t offer you magic potions, lotions, or condiments to have your shopping done for you.…

Afternoon Tea Review: Cathedral Quarter Derby

Afternoon Tea Review: Cathedral Quarter Derby

There is a first time for everything. I have never reviewed a restaurant and given it zero on all counts. Until now. I’m passionate about good food.

Restaurant Review: Le Bistrot Pierre, Friargate, Derby

When it’s cold and wintry outside, you just want to make like Baloo the Bear (yes I watched Jungle Book this weekend) and hibernate. Come midday and those darn hunger pangs have begun to set in, heralding the onset of hunter-gatherer syndrome. To avoid battling through the sea of Christmas shoppers for that un-inspired soggy sandwich, I have a better…
