Pomegranate

A drizzly grey day in Edinburgh, just before Christmas seen Stuart and I pop into Pomegranate on Antigua Street for a late lunch. We were warmly welcomed into the bright and cheery restaurant, just what we needed to break through the greyness! Pomegranate is the sister restaurant of Hanam’s up near the Castle, which is…

The Chop Shop

When we were last in London Stuart and I made an effort to eat in places we haven’t been to before.  When you are down there working its easy to fall into the trap of the same old restaurants.  So I did my research before we went and I set my eyes on The Chop…

Burger & Lobster

I’ve been working down in London this past week or so, and whilst I’m here I’ve been trying to check out different places to eat – a change from hotel room service! A colleague told me about Burger & Lobster, they have 4 branches across London and sell 3 things: Burgers, Lobsters and Lobster rolls…

Afternoon Tea at the Pommery Bar

On Saturday 14 Edinburgh Bakers treated themselves to a fantastic afternoon tea in the beautiful venue of The Signet Library, at the Pommery Bar.  The Pommery Bar only pops up once a year during the festival, so we were sure to get in early with this treat! We first started with a refreshing glass of…

Woodland Dinner

A month or so ago I discovered that during the summer a pop up restaurant would be appearing at Jupiter Artland.  I have written about Jupiter Artland before, and how its a great day out.  So I was really excited about this event which was being run by Barry from C{ate}r.  Thankfully we were able…

Loving Food!

Over the last six months there appears to have been a shift in the food choices available in Stirling.  I have often mentioned before about how dull Stirling is for good quality food and the limited choice, especially in terms of quick lunch snacks, with the supermarkets often being the only ‘decent’ option for a…

The Coffee Bothy,Deanston Distillery

Always on the look out for new places to eat near our office, Stuart and I took a quick trip up to Deanston Distillery, a mere 15 minutes away, to grab a bite to eat at The Coffee Bothy. Deanston Distillery’s claim to fame is that the film ‘The Angels Share’ centres around some precious…

The Red Onion, Glasgow

Last month we were through in Glasgow and I put out on Twitter did anyone have any recommendations for places to eat.  I got several replies saying I had to try the Red Onion;  so we did. The Red Onion is a little neighbourhood bistro just off Bath Street, so still pretty central.  We arrived…

Cafe Blue Bear

Earlier this week I arranged to meet a couple of friends for brunch today.  One of them suggested Cafe Blue Bear, a new cafe which has been open for about 6 weeks in Canonmills, which I have been trying to try out since then!  One thing I hadn’t planned on was the massive hangover that…

The Inn at Torbrex

Back in December, my Father-in-law introduced us to The Inn at Torbrex, a new bar / restaurant tucked away in the Torbrex area of Stirling (luckily Stuart’s an ex-local so knows where he is going!). A few weeks ago when it was quite rainy and miserable, we decided to cheer ourselves up by getting out…
