Scones. Check. Crustless Finger Sandwiches. Check. Delicate Pastries. Check. It can only mean one thing….. Afternoon Tea. A time where you can get together around a smorgasbord of delectable delights, sip on tea (pinkies at the ready) and or champagne if you are feeling in the mood for a tipple. As far as themed weeks go Afternoon Tea week has got to be up there on the favourite list.  Monday marked the start of this quintessentially British week and here are some Afternoon Tea ideas for you. Prepare yourself because who knew there were so many varieties, it’s not just about…

Let’s face it most things revolve around food, well it certainly does for me, and I love going out to eat. I do find that there isn’t much variety when it comes to restaurants and wherever you go there are the same cluster of eateries. I am very much up for trying new places and was lucky enough to be invited by Jamie’s Italian to give their menu at their Guildford branch a try.

Is it just me or is there a lack of decent pubs around nowadays? Everywhere is filled with chained restaurants with most just churning out lack lustre food with no heart and soul and charging an arm and a leg for it. We as a family have been on the lookout for a new place to eat and have heard some great things about The Onslow Arms in Clandon and decided on a whim that Friday night was the night to give it a go.  The pub itself has heaps of character with traditional features, exposed beams and a huge fireplace.
