GastroPub Review: The Joiners Arms, Quarndon Derby

GastroPub Review: The Joiners Arms, Quarndon Derby

What are bank holidays for, but to loll around watching a plethora of vacuous daytime TV interspersed with a trip to your local gastro-pub? I had to satisfy my foodie need to check out a place that has been on my radar since last year, and so it was on Good Friday that I eventually found myself Quarndon bound for…

Restaurant Review: Oaks, Nottingham

Spring has officially sprung. I love the beginning of a new season. Especially spring, which heralds warmer temperatures and seeing the sun isn’t such a rarity that you gaze at like a long lost friend.

Restaurant Review: Curryholics Derby

Hello All, Hope you’re all having a cracking weekend, how have you been? In between cool household shopping in Derby which included electric salt and pepper mills, fluted pastry tin and baking beans (domestic foodie goddess alert) and writing, the weekend has just flown by. As I mentioned last week, I discovered a new Indian restaurant down the road from where…
