Something a Bit Special #18 Baking Bread with Dani

Danielle Ellis has recently moved to Gloucestershire from Edinburgh and she isn’t wasting any time in getting to know the local area. She’s set up a blog called Severn Bites which documents the places she’s eaten at, travelled to and recipes she has cooked up, including a rather special post on her award winning sloe gin which you can read here.

Local Eat Treats #50 A Belly Busting Bloggers' Brunch at Bottle of Sauce

The Bottle of Sauce has certainly earned itself a good name during its short time here in Cheltenham. Well known for its burgers, pizzas, wings and fries which you can read about here, they are now super keen to get word out about their brunch game too; so, we willingly went along to their bloggers' brunch to eat (and snap) away.

Local Eat Treats #49 Top Secret Foodie Treats at The Tavern

Since The Tavern re-opened towards the end of last year, they’ve been serving up mighty fine burgers, fries, salads and amazing side dishes. But now that the chefs have that well and truly under their belt, they felt it was time to introduce a whole new menu, not to replace the burgers, but to sit alongside them for those fancying something a little more experimental. Now, I know The Tavern are keen to keep this new menu a secret between foodies - keep it exclusive and all that - but well, I’ve never been any good at keeping secrets.

Coffee Break #32 In The Pink on a Very Rainy Day

Pink Vintage is on my route into town, so I’ve passed by uncountable times. The window is full of edgy vintage items – apart from in March when they have a (winning) Gold Cup display.
