Rosemarino’s: Vorrei del fromaggio per favore…

With an upcoming two and half week holiday in Italy (so hard to control my excitement about this) I have discovered the perfect way to learn some Italian. On the first Tuesday of every month the lovely people of Rosemarino’s on the outskirts of Clifton Village hold an Italian language evening. For £25 you have…

Primrose Cafe: My Inspiration….at night…

A lovely friend recently treated the flatmate and I to a delicious meal out as a Thank You for a stay at the Bowingham Residence. Never to turn down a free dinner out I was absolutely delighted to be taken to one of my favourite places – Primrose Cafe, although not as I have previously…

Clifton Sausage: A whole lot of pork based goods….

A wonderful friend of mine’s flat literally overlooks the Clifton Sausage and they are therefore regulars to the meaty delights that this place has to offer. Until recently, however, I was yet to try anything but their bar snacks. I would say their bar snacks are worth a visit themselves though as they include the…

Cote Bistro: Venture through the red curtains….

Finally I have visited the Cote Bistro in Clifton village (I realise I am behind the times!) and I was not disappointed – particularly due to the dramatic entrance through giant red curtains! 🙂 Who needs just doors?

Browns: My ever-faithful…

Relaxation Centre: Why have I never been here before?

Sometimes you visit a new place and wonder how on earth you have got through life without it. Particularly when that place has been sat on your doorstep for last 3 years! Hidden away in the streets of Clifton you can find the Relaxation Centre. And it could not be more aptly named! A little…

The Botanist: Reminiscing about Summer….

I am of course not discounting this place from a winter visit, however this year my summer was all about frequenting The Botanist. Some of you who have not visited Bristol for a while may have known this place as Ha! Ha! Bar. Things have changed. With light walls, strategic flower placement and quirky named…

Lahloo Pantry: A new teashop in Bristol :)

For anyone who knows me well they would have heard me ramble on about my dream of owning my own teashop – a dream I really do hope one day comes true. I have an unhealthy obsession with cupcakes, of which I bake on a regular basis. I even have a cupcake tattoo on my…
