Nottingham- The Rustic Crust

Okay so after days, weeks, MONTHS, of scrolling past picture-perfect-pizzas on my Instagram feed, I FINALLY got the chance to try out The Rustic Crust for myself. These guys have been popping up on the business park where my office is located for quite some time, but I never connected the dots, I mean if…

Derbyshire- The Bridge Inn

Where do I even begin here?! This place is 300000% my FAVOURITE place to eat in Derbyshire – I am aware that is a bold statement, but if you haven’t been, what are you doing? Make plans to go there ASAP. It’s a bank holiday weekend this weekend, we are in for a scorcher, what…

Sheffield- Tamper

After reaching out on Instagram for suggestions on “Breakfast in Sheffield” Tamper was on everyone’s list, so this week, I went to try them out. In Sellers Wheel, Tamper is located in a renovated 19th century former silversmiths. Exposed red brick and pipes give Tamper a relaxed vibe that is made more welcoming by the…

Nottingham- Gannets

Me and Chris have walked in the rain quite a few times, we have been on hikes where, seemingly out of nowhere, the weather has turned and we have had to continue our walk, wet and muddy. Sometimes, that can’t be helped, the weather forecast just lets us down. On days where the forecast shows…

Nottingham- Sushimania

So, I went to go see what all the fuss was about at Nottingham’s newest sushi joint, me and my friend Danielle love a bit ‘a sush so we went with big appetites. I have to say, I usually am NOT a fan of all-you-can-eat restaurants, personally the quality has never been there for me…

Derbyshire- The Plough Inn at Hathersage

The Plough Inn at Hathersage has got to be one of my favourite pubs in Derbyshire. As soon as you walk in you get that country-pub feel that only a beamed ceiling and an open fire can give you. Me and Chris have visited the Plough a few times over the last year or so…

Sheffield- The Birdhouse Tea Bar & Kitchen

As I may have mentioned one or two times before, me and my good friend Chris like to go hiking in the Peak district. This in mind, we are always on the look out for good breakfast and lunch spots to fuel our bodies with. Today we tried out The Birdhouse Tea Bar and Kitchen….

Derbyshire – The Devonshire Arms @ Pilsley

After visiting the Devonshire Arms @ Beeley for well over a year now, it was time we went and tried out one of their sister restaurants in Pilsley. Once we had completed a monster 64-mile hike (okay 14-mile…) we needed some serious refuelling. I’m not sure why we have never tried the Devonshire Arms in…

Derbyshire – The Pointing Dog and Duck

Me and Chris have been on quite a few walks in Derbyshire now, we spent an entire year last year doing at least one each week and have managed to keep up that trend in 2018. Bakewell has been a starting point for many a hike, especially in the early days. I remember when we…

Nottingham – The Fox Cafe

I feel an odd sense of patriotism when I walk around Nottingham. I can never figure out if it’s the familiarity of living there for 20-something years or if it’s because it’s a nice City to have a wander about but I get a weird feeling of pride whenever I come back to the town…
