The Swine that Dines, Leeds.

I have heard nothing but good things about this little place. This cafe turned restaurant has been somewhere on my radar for a while and we finally got to try it! We had booked an early dinner slot as we had plans for cocktails and snacks at The Man Behind the Curtain afterwards. We arrived... Continue Reading →


Northcote. Tasting Menu Review

I was so excited to be eating at Northcote.  As we reserved our room less than a week before, the only time we had managed to get for dinner was 6pm for 6.30 pm, which was a little early but I was still very much looking forward to our dinner. We arrived on the terrace... Continue Reading →

Fuzzy Sun Band @ Jimmys nq

On Saturday 24th March we had the pleasure of seeing Fuzzy Sun at Jimmys in the Northern Quarter, Manchester. Jimmys is somewhere we are probably a little old for, but nonetheless we arrived about 9pm.  It was already pretty packed downstairs and the support band were already in full swing.  The girl singer reminded me...
