Eating Out at Cau Guildford

Cau restaurant sits firmly at the top of Guildford High Street, and is a breath of fresh air to the umpteen amount of Italian restaurants that surrounds it. It’s difficult to imagine Buenos Aires in Guildford but they are certainly giving it a good go. We visited Cau when it first opened way back when, and after a few visits it had lost its sparkle. Fast forward a year or so, and with a newer menu, we decided to give it another whirl.  With a fun vibrant modern decor, and background tunes with a latin beat that you just can’t help…

Cadbury Dairy Milk Chips Ahoy!

Good Full Stop .

In the interest of being healthy but still wanting to have a treat without the guilt, I have been trying out various ‘healthy’ bars. But can a fruit and nut bar be successfully disguised as banana bread, apple crumble or even various arrays of chocolate? I am rather dubious as to whether mulched up dates and cashews can really pull it off, and whether I would choose one over a choccie bar, but if they can then miracles do happen.  Recently over on Twitter Good Full Stop gave me a follow and I was more than intrigued by their bars.

Carluccio’s Woking

Italian restaurants, there is no shortage of them. Walk along a parade of restaurants and I can guarantee you most will be serving Italian food. With all these Italian choices can there really be much scope in the food served? What comes to mind when I say Italian cuisine? *Gino DiCampo was my first thought :)*; Second, more realistic thought – pizza and pasta. With so many Italian chains, what makes one a cut above the rest? Hot on the newly refurbished restaurant scene, Woking has welcomed Carluccio’s. Modern, glass fronted exterior and spacious floor plan with a view into the kitchen at the rear of…
