Afternoon Tea at Vertigo 42

As restrictions are being relaxed I wanted to share my little afternoon tea trip that I took back in February, which feels a lifetime ago! Despite my love of afternoon tea I’ve never had one in London. However that changed after the lovely team I work with surprised me with Afternoon Tea at Vertigo 42. Booking through Groupon was easy peasy, and it was recommended to book promptly so not to miss out on your preferred date, however there were ample to choose from. A train, a couple of tubes and a short walk and you arrive at quite the…

Anyone who knows Farnham knows the buildings have history behind them. Eating out is one of my favourite things to do and what better way to kick start the…

On the streets of the upper high street of Guildford you certainly cannot miss this vibrantly coloured Indian restaurant and it has the interior to match.

7Bone Burger Co. Reading

In dire need of some food before seeing Joel Dommett, we were in search of somewhere to eat in Reading town centre when we stumbled across the 7Bone Burger Co. I don’t know if it is because I look at food most days on the net but I keep seeing their juicy looking burgers all over Facebook and Instagram and therefore there was no hesitation in giving this a go.  With their minimalist almost warehouse feel the decor appears unfinished but is almost like you have gone to this secret little underground place for a naughty foodie feast. The menu…
