Coffee Break #34 Fully Loaded Homemade Goodness at Maison Chaplais

Andover Road has been home to Maison Chaplais for twelve years now. We’ve often popped in to select the odd foodie treat for friends (and ourselves of course) and have once or twice bought a coffee and a pastry before being on our merry way. But seeing as it’s only a 20 minute stroll from our home, we thought we better try it out properly and see what delights we have on our doorstep (or near enough).

Local Eat Treats #54 Pork Belly and Five a Day at The County Kitchen

The County Kitchen is hidden away, just off the High Street, on Grosvenor Street. They are rather well known for their brunches (they’d served brunch to 73 people on the day we went!), but are also a popular spot for lunch and dinner.

Back in October 2016, Bhoomi took the crown for the Best Eating Out Establishment at the Taste of Gloucestershire awards.

Eating Out and About #17 Girls' Day Out at The Peacock in Oxhill

Nestled between Banbury and Stratford there’s a tiny but rather gorgeous village, called Oxhill, which is home to The Peacock. A short drive from Moreton-in-Marsh, this was the perfect spot to meet with Claire, my friend from St Albans, one Friday lunch time.

Something a Bit Special #20 Getting the Scoop on the Icesmith

You’ll know what a goldsmith is, a locksmith and a blacksmith, but I’ll bet you’ve never heard of an icesmith?! No, didn’t think so. Well that’s exactly what Jake Gadsy is; he is an icesmith whose craft is in ice cream.

Local Eat Treats #52 Bubbles, Burgers AND Brunch at The Old Stocks Inn

The Old Stocks Inn has been on my never-ending eating out list for a few years now, but when their head chef, Wayne Sullivan, appeared on Masterchef: The Professionals and did rather well, The Old Stocks Inn found itself skipping right up the to the top of said list.
