Nottingham- Carriages

Since Carriages opened, I have eaten there a couple of times, usually for a quick lunch after visiting Newark Sports & Fitness Centre for a few rounds of badminton. Which I suck at. Carriages is a relatively new café and restaurant situated at Newark train station and their interior boasts a steampunk-esque vibe which proudly…

Nottingham – Cafe Coco Tang

How have I not been here before? I can’t believe this exotic oasis is sat in the heart of Nottingham quietly offering a tropical retreat from the hustle and bustle of shoppers and commuters only meters away.

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…

Derbyshire – The Cavendish

It was time Chris and I ventured further a field for breakfast and try something other than our usual spot (The Devonshire Arms).This week, before heading to the peaks, after spending an entire year driving through it, we decided to try out one of Baslow’s finest restaurants, The Cavendish. Bear in mind that as we…
