The quest for a quick bite to eat before the Monday night quiz at the Grain Barge took us to neighbouring Siam Harbourside, a Thai restaurant that’s had mixed reviews from people I’ve spoken to – and we had a similarly mixed experience… Read the rest of this entry »

It’s all go at Westbury-on-Trym’s Casamia at the moment! A new website in the pipeline, the construction of a new development kitchen…and the launch of their new Autumn menus, which include an 11-course feast… Read the rest of this entry »

Signs had been up on the window of what used to be The Chill Out Cafe for a month or two, informing passers by that the Siam Angel Cafe would be ‘opening early September’. Working just a few doors down the road, I pass the place every morning and evening and have been watching the place take shape. The new cafe finally opened on September 21st – a little behind schedule, but I hadn’t realised how much work, time and movement had gone into the venture… Read the rest of this entry »

Wednesday October 19th – a date for the diary, when Tim Owen and Carlton Jefferis (aka Dinewithi) will be serving up a delicious local and seasonal meal for their second stint at 40 Alfred Place… Read the rest of this entry »

Before the visit that I’m going to write about here, I’d paid three visits to various branches of The Living Room, and had three equally disappointing experiences. The first was a meal in London’s Islington branch, where it was claimed on arrival that all dishes were made from scratch, and yet my risotto made its way to my table less than 10 minutes after ordering and was overcooked. The first visit to the Bristol restaurant saw three different diners ordering exactly the same starter but with no consistency between the three plates of food. And the third visit was for drinks only, where we were met with a scathing ‘we ARE a cocktail bar’ when asking the barman, out of curiosity, which ciders they served. Unsurprisingly, after those visits, I was a little reluctant to head back. I’m pleased to say, though, that it was very much a case of ‘fourth time lucky’ when a friend and I visited The Living Room for a Saturday night meal… Read the rest of this entry »

With 14 of us needing a table for a friend’s birthday celebrations, the first choice of venue would normally be Sands on Queens Road. However, with the Lebanese restaurant having recently shut its doors, we decided to give new Lebanese restaurant Afendi on Cheltenham Road a whirl instead… Read the rest of this entry »

A guest review from Tom and James of their meal at The Cosy Club, Bath…thanks both! Read the rest of this entry »

Another search for a cheap post-work bite to eat on Whiteladies Road led a friend and I to another venue that I hadn’t yet eaten at: Picture House East. It was the board outside that swayed us, advertising two courses for £10 (or three for £13.50)…rude not to, really… Read the rest of this entry »

A mid-week post-work coffee with fellow food blogger Ingrid, author of Sweet And Wild, soon led to the realisation that we were hungry. It also led to the realisation that neither of us had eaten at the restaurant at The Square Club on Berkeley Square, a situation that we decided to rectify immediately… Read the rest of this entry »
