I don’t think Sunday lunch was ever intended to be seasonal, but to me, there’s no better time to indulge than the colder months. Sunday lunch has a fair amount of stodge involved – and I’m not complaining. I love comfort foods; they warm you up from the inside out and are perfectly complemented by a roaring log fire and a rather large woolly jumper.

The Clarence Social is the newest place to hit Cheltenham’s food and drinks scene and I love it. The owners – Terry Croft and Steve Jones – have worked super hard on getting the place, its spaces and talented team ready for opening.

Earlier this year, I walked the length of the Thames path from source to barrier. There were a few places along the way that caught my attention and I vowed to return to one day – minus the hiking boots and rucksack. So, I was dead chuffed to be invited to The Fat Fox Inn in the village of Watlington, which is just a short drive from Henley-on-Thames, for dinner and an overnight stay.

The Weighbridge Inn is famous for their 2 in 1 pies. 2 in 1 pies?! When I first heard of these wonderful things, I presumed they were half savoury and half sweet, but actually they are half pie and half veg – usually cauliflower cheese. The cheesiest, and therefore, the bestest cauliflower cheese you ever did try by the way!

Being a big fan of interiors and constantly doing home improvements we are no strangers to Malt House Emporium found just on the outskirts of Stroud. So when a new eatery opened up right next door to it, we were super keen to visit and see what they had to offer.

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary we had a right treat lined up at Cotswold House Hotel with a visit to the spa, dinner, drinks and an overnight stay. There won’t be a blog post, as I honoured our romantic weekend by not allowing the camera to join us at the dinner table, but I did manage to sneak it out to lunch with us earlier on in the day.

Being a true Cheltenham girl, I love a day out at the horseracing, starting with a hearty breakfast with family and friends. For The Festival in March, my guests had asked for a breakfast sandwich (because I host the sort of people who know what they want and aren’t afraid to tell me), so I set about sourcing the very best ingredients I could find – and not just from anywhere, I wanted to support local people and producers and see what our county (and just a bit further afield) could offer.
