This is the new ale house in Chester


Good news Chester, the wait is over! Big Hand Brewery have opened their Tap Room on Watergate Street. You’ve probably heard rumours about it for a while now, but finally on Thursday last week they flung their doors open for a soft opening and now, after what seems like months of waiting, they’re finally officially open for business. Huzzah!  …

Sorted for Sunday at the Suburbs


For me, Sundays can go one of two ways: I either wake up perky and happy and ready to fill my day with lazy nonsense, or I wake up feeling like death because the last pint or cocktail the night before was just one too many. Basically, I’m either super hungover or not – there’s usually very little in between.…

Can’t wait for Chester Pride – But it’s not about me


It’s Chester Pride this Saturday and I have my rainbow colours, glitter and party spirit at the ready! I love Pride, me.

Here’s what the second Hoole Beer Festival was like


So Hoole was a bit lit last weekend, eh? The second (what I assume is) annual Hoole Beer Festival (organised by the good folk from Chester Beer and Wine) put together a mighty fine party over the course of Friday, Saturday and even Sunday and it was packed like you wouldn’t believe.

How is it that I have somehow almost completely overlooked an establishment that’s been serving food and drink for over 18 years in the heart of Chester? I distinctively recall sitting in the beer garden with a cocktail once or twice but I don’t ever remember actually going inside. OK – that could be due to the cocktails but seriously.…

Is this the best hairdresser in Chester?


Honey, you know a good hairdresser is worth their weight in gold and when you find one, you hold on to them for dear (hair) life. I found my hairdresser almost two years ago and ever since (hair) destiny brought us together, I have refused to let anyone else even approach my hair with utensils with which to cut it.…

I went to Chester Craft Beer Festival and this is what it was like


  Honestly, I’m still recovering from the onslaught of amazing beer on Saturday. But I’ll try and walk you guys through what absolutely was the one of the best beer festivals I’ve been to for a while, even if my poor head still feels somewhat light.     So my friends at Beer Heroes put their collective love towards all…

New cocktail menu at the Suburbs


Honey I don’t need to be told many times that a chic little boutique bar is launching, not only a new cocktail menu, but also a new food menu. No honey, once was enough. The minute I heard that Suburbs in Hoole was revamping their offerings I was out the door so quick it would have made your head spin.…

Chester’s new vintage haunt is more than a shop


  What happens when you combine creative local entrepreneurs, some superb fashion, crafty gifts and some random bits and bobs that don’t really seem to fit anywhere but totally belong some weird way? The 2nd Floor on Northgate Street, that’s what.     It was a bloggers day out on Saturday when Polly and I hit the town with the…
