Local Eat Treats #42 Our First Trip to The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen

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.

Coffee Break #30 Nursing a Cold at Campden Coffee Company

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.

Something a Bit Special #15 The Locally Sourced Breakfast Sandwich

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.

The Bestest #4 What Makes a Good Eatery


As a food blogger I’m very aware that the things I really like and appreciate may not be what other people are looking for in a meal out. However, I am a firm believer that food is to be enjoyed and so if you’re spending your well-earned money on eating out, the whole experience should be fantastic (no matter how little or how much you’re spending).

Local Eat Treats #41 Sunday Lunch at Montpellier Lodge

We haven’t had a roast dinner for ages; it seems more of a cold weather thing than something for long and hot summer days. So, what with this new nip in the air, we booked into Montpellier Lodge to welcome Autumn.
