Badger & Co – Restaurant Review

I was invited to go and try out Edinburgh’s, recently opened, Badger & Co and I’d been hearing great things so was very happy to oblige! Not to mention the last time I was inside the building it was an office so I was very curious to see how it’d converted into a Bar and Eatery. […]

The Horseshoe Restaurant, Eddleston – it’s the little things!

I’ve often heard from ‘Science’, and friends who live in our neck of the woods, how lovely the food is at The Horseshoe at Eddleston (nr Peebles), so, when I received an invitation to try it out for myself with a 6 course tasting menu matched with Argentinian wines (my favourite) in the private dining […]

BBQ and a cocktail at Hotel Du Vin

I was gutted that I couldn’t make this event a few weeks back – sadly I had to be on duty at one of my own, but luckily Catriona and Graeme were happy to step into the breach once more. Probably just as well – a bbq running out of meat wouldn’t have made for a […]

Our MD, Simon Farrell also spoke and he provided […]

The Tasting Menu at Purslane Restaurant in Stockbridge

Purslane Restaurant in Stockbridge has become a firm favourite of ‘Bees’ & I. It’s small and beautifully formed and both Chef/Owner Paul and Gregor on front of house are fantastic hosts. We’ve long been wanting to try the Tasting Menu (with wines of course) and last week we had something to celebrate so indulged ourselves […]

WIN a 3 Course Meal For Two (with Wine) at Thai Orchid Restaurant

I know there are plenty of creative foodies out there that might like this so thought I’d share. (I’ve never actually eaten here but it keeps coming up trumps on all the user generated content sites). Entrants are being asked to ‘challenge’ the restaurant to cook a meal that’s individual to them to suite their own […]
