The Curtain Hotel Rooftop Pool - Shoreditch, London

The last few times I’ve been to London, I always seem to be drawn to Shoreditch although I’ve never actually stayed the night there. We were invited to an event with Sainsburys as part of their Taste Maker project recently, which happened to be taking place in Shoreditch. So we thought we would make a […]

Photo of Asian food menu Admiral St David Cardiff Bay

I recently got chosen to name a cocktail on the new Admiral St David bar and restaurant at Voco St David’s in Cardiff Bay. I was given the ingredients and had to choose the name on Facebook, with their favourite being selected and being put on the menu. I also got to sample the new […]

Outside view of Nobu Hotel Shoreditch

Being obsessed with Japan and dreaming of a trip there in the near future, we thought we would have a taste of Japan on home turf for our trip to London last weekend. We decided to book a night at Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch. If you’re not familiar with Nobu, they started life as a […]

Me sampling the new Jin Mor at Halen Mon

We recently got an invite to Wales most famous salt brand Halen Mon for the launch of not one but three new ventures at the Coastal HQ along Anglesey’s treasured Menai Straights. Normally I would have questioned a 10 hour round trip for a launch event but this was no normal launch party. Having used […]

I recently got sent a sample box of bars from Human Food to review. I’d not heard of them previously but was keen to see what they did after learning they hailed from the seaside town of Tenby in West Wales. I’ve tried my fair share of energy / protein / meal replacement bars over […]

Gerald of Wales - Arriva Trains business class

We were asked by Arriva Trains who still run the service from Cardiff to Holyhead on Anglesey to join them on the Gerald of Wales, their premium carriage service to celebrate the launch of the Welsh gin being served on the service from Eccentric Gin. The Gerald of Wales offers the only first class train […]

Negroni at The Dead Canary Cardiff

We were recently invited to the first in a series of gin dinners at Deaths and Entrances, the new bar within The Dead Canary and run by the same team. The new bar opened a few months back and I loved the new flavour driven cocktail menu on the launch weekend. The gin dinner was […]

55 day aged beef from Cardiff Butcher at Ember

I was sat in a pub in pub in the Pembrokeshire Countryside a few weeks back, sipping on a pint of local ale whilst catching up on some socials. We’d been busy walking around Cardigan all day, then me foolishly braving the March Welsh sea by taking a plunge. I noticed that Milk & Sugar […]

Scallop dish at Host Copenhagen

Apart from Warpigs, we had been living off market food and just grabbing a bite to eat as and when we could since landing in Copenhagen, but I wanted to at least have one experience of Nordic cooking on our 3 day trip. After a bit of googling and a recommendation from a friend we […]
