Last week’s press trip to discover some Foodie ‘hidden gems’ was fantastic, I’ve already blogged about the amazing tasting menu created for us by Chef Tom Lewis but I also wanted to mention some of the other things we got up to! Scottish Sushi: I love sushi and have always wanted to have a go […]
Last week, I happened to be in South Queensferry and remembered being invited to check out The Wee Restaurant, just across the bridge so took the ‘locational’ opportunity to give it a try. Just like it’s name (& the village itself), it is pretty ‘wee’, but rather lovely too! And although we were among the first […]

They recently moved away from Broughton […]
I was lucky enough to be invited along to Grey Goose’s cocktail event at The Devils Advocate Bar on Wednesday night. I should’ve known from the amazing invitation that was sent, and that they organised cars for us, that this was going to be a big event – why oh why didn’t I listen to […]
