(Next) 7 amazing bars in Chester you have to visit


I did a post about 7 amazing bars in Chester a while ago and have had this nagging feeling I should do a follow-up on it. Because Chester has so many more than just 7 amazing watering holes. So. Many. More. y’all.   The truth still is that the vast majority of my paychecks go to hanging out in the…

I’m all Christmassy already and I’m not even sorry


  Look, I know it’s only November and I know Christmas is still over a month away but damnit, I don’t care. Christmas lasts for only a few days so I intend to throw everything and the kitchen sink at it and extend my enjoyment of the season. I intend to be completely unapologetical about it.   Which is why…

Drinking wine in a 13th century crypt


If there’s something better than tasting top notch wines and quirky beers in a 13th century crypt on a leisurely afternoon I don’t really want to know about it.   Well that’s not entirely true, because beating such an afternoon would take some doing so I may actually want to know about it, I just don’t think there are that many…

Lunch at Moules-a-Go-Go


A few weekends back I got to experience what it’s like to be a lady who lunches as my girlfriends and I found ourselves in town well gone midday, starving.

I brewed a beer and this is what it was like


  Anyone who says brewing a beer is all fun and frolics has never tried to clean a mash tun. That being said, hubby and I did enjoy ourselves last weekend when we had our hand at bringing a beer to life at Brewhouse & Kitchen, Chester.     We were invited to brew a beer with the head brewer…

The ultimate Autumn comfort food


  Guys, I feel like I would be doing a massive disservice to you if I didn’t tell you about the new menu at Brewhouse & Kitchen. Why? Because they have something on it that is probably the best thing I have ever tasted, ever.     I’m getting ahead of myself a little here. If you haven’t heard of…

Friday like you mean it


  OK, I have a confession: I am a sucker for a cocktail on a Friday night. Well, truth be told, I’m a sucker for a cocktail any given night and even the odd afternoon but especially on Friday nights because it’s the end of my working week and I bloody well deserve one.     Oh, you do too,…

5 pubs you should visit on a pub crawl in Hoole


Let me tell you a few things about where I live, work and play.   I have mentioned before how much I love living in Hoole, and not the least because there are great watering holes and eateries just a few steps away from my front door. Obviously there’s the added bonus of great specialist boutiques from clothes and accessories…

Smoke and mirrors: the newest brunch spot in Chester


  When I think of alchemy I don’t necessarily connect that with eggs benedict or a full English breakfast – but it seems that Alchemist does. And why not! Food is chemistry on many levels I suppose. And then there is the chemistry between people, and that’s where it all started to fold like a house of cards.    …

Beers and beats at Hoole Beer Festival


  “Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy”, said Benjamin Franklin (arguably) way back when and if you needed any more proof that it’s true, that was at the Hoole Beer festival this weekend. Sure, I ended up with the mother of all hangovers and sore feet due to too much dancing but it was…
