What an absolute beauty this was.
We had been wanting to go here forever and it didn’t disappoint at all.
We ordered truffle popcorn & olives to start, these were both lovely. We also ordered some sourdough with salted & marmite butter, the marmite butter was absolutely delicious.
We were sent an amuse bouche which was a beetroot & mackerel, everything was sensational but the beetroot meringue stole the show.
Next we ordered starters, I ordered the ham hock terrine which was perfectly seasoned, served with toasted brioche & piccalilli gel. My mom ordered the local asparagus and Hollandaise & My partner ordered the filo pastry with prawns which he said was delicious. Everything was plated incredibly.
The main courses arrived next, I ordered the beef fillet, served with a homemade ravioli which was Divine, my partner & step dad ordered the pork three ways which they both really enjoyed. My mom ordered the cod with pancetta. All served with beautifully presented vegetables, and perfectly cooked.
We cannot wait to come back, the restaurant was gorgeous and the service was impeccable.
Thank you very much Cotford Hotel, see you again soon
On Saturday we visited the white hart at hartlebury.
I had won their Facebook competition of 2 courses for 2 and a bottle of Prosecco! How lucky was i!
We started with a local pint, and looked through the menu. I’d already had a cheeky look at their Instagram to see what the pub had to offer.
We decided on the scallops to the start and the chicken liver parfait. The scallops were coooked beautifully and the parfait was perfectly pink. Both were absolutely delicious!
Next we had ordered the Caribbean Lamb Shank and the belly pork. The lamb fell off the bone served with a jerk sauce, rice and peas and fresh pineapple. The pork was crispy on the outside and beautifully soft in the middle. Bonus points for extra sauce given without asking!
We decided to try the Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. It was probably one of the best sticky toffee puddings I’ve tried. Served in a butterscotch sauce it melted in your mouth.
It was a fabulous date night and we will definitely be returning.
Thank you The White Hart at Hartlebury

We love going to the bull with my Nan and grandad & they are always so accommodating for us.
3 of us ordered the large fish and chips £12.50 and my Nan ordered the goats cheese salad £13
The salad looked really good and my Nan enjoyed it.
James, my grandad and myself ordered the fish and chips.
They come with chippy chips from the chip shop or you request gourmet chips (which all 3 of us ordered) it also comes with garden peas or mushy to which I asked for salad as I’m an awkward bugger.
The fish was cooked to perfection the cod was flakey & white, the batter was crisp and the chips were crispy & fluffy in the middle.
One of the best pub fish and chips we’ve had!
Everyone throughly enjoyed their meal and I’m sure we will be visiting again soon.
The Bull Inn at Fernhill Heath
22nd May | 8.30pm
My favourite restaurant of all time.
We absolutely love the OB, I love tapas, having a bit of everything rather than one meal.
We arrived and shown to our table, we were also given a Impasto menu too which you can now order from both restaurants. We HAD to order the carbonara fries - on a side note if you haven’t tried these then why not?! They are so so so good!
We ordered so much food, far too much to be honest!
Everything was sensational, every bite was beautiful. The service was perfect and well looked after.
The Olive Branch Mediterranean Bistro & Wine Bar
Saturday 22nd May | 6.30pm
We had booked here for drinks on Saturday and it was fantastic,
we really enjoyed the vibe and what they had done with the old
It makes you feel you are sat on an old pirate ship in the middle of
the caribbean. There are so many quirky things and we loved
The cocktails were spectacular, and we loved the tiki glasses too.
The service was perfect and feel of the place was spot on too.
The food looked really good coming out of the kitchen but we decided not to have anything as
we’d already booked dinner.
We will definitely be returning!
We were invited down last night, for a cheeky sneak peak and what an invite it was!
The restaurant has such a cool vibe, exposed walls, wooden & quirky. You can tell the owner Adam Giagnotti has taken the time to think about everything. Being the owner of The Olive Branch Mediterranean Bistro & Wine Bar too, as some of you may know this is one of my favourite restaurants in Worcester so this had already set the tone & high expectations, they somehow managed to exceed those!
It’s located in the centre of town, behind the olive branch, slightly up from Halifax.
Obviously it’s just takeaway to start but there is a small hidden restaurant downstairs.
We couldn’t wait to try the food, we left our dinner choice in Impasto’s more than capable hands.
First we started with the Carbonara Chips. Firstly have you ever tried carbonara on chips before?
These were sensational, there was so much depth, every chip was packed full of everything. A creamy béchamel sauce, bacon, flakes of cheese topped with crispy onions We couldn’t get enough of these.
Next we had the Prosciutto Fungi - San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, prosciutto cotto, chestnut mushrooms & mascarpone (with added wild spinach )
The base was crisp, the mozzarella melted perfectly, the wild spinach was so flavoursome, I’ve never had wild spinach before!
Finally we had the Salsiccia - San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, salsiccia, sobrasada & honey. For people like me who’s not sure on itailian words this was similar to a pepperoni pizza, with n’duja (a spicy sausage) drizzled in honey.
This was also incredible, we loved the spice but it wasn’t overpowering at all, the sweetness of the honey was so pleasant too.
Both pizzas were so light, and crispy, the dough is served thinly which we thought was perfect. Everything served was piping hot so it would travel a fair distance before being cold.
Honestly they were probably up there in the top 5 of incredible pizzas!
We cannot wait to watch this business thrive and support it!
They also make fresh homemade pasta & sauces!
Ps - sorry about my crap photos we were in the car at night
We loved our delivery from Peggy Sue’s Mobile Vintage Bar!
We ordered the cherry bakewell which has now made it on the menu & the pornstar martini!
Cherry Bakewell Cocktail which were fantastic, wish we had a bigger glass or that I didn’t have to share! It was sweet but not over the top sickly like some places. It was refreshing and delicious!
Pornstar Martini, which was also delicious, this one was quite thick so it lasted longer and the cheeky shot of prosecco added a little fizz to it.
They were both brilliant but the cherry bakewell was definitely our favourite, Peggy sues please can you deliver us a pitcher of that!!
The cocktails were so easy to put together, and obviously they come with something to serve your cocktails in which I think is really good, you literally get everything you need (apart from some ice) in the bag, what more could you want!
Cocktails are £9.50 (makes two)
Peggy Sue’s have also teamed up with Tasha Bee Bakes for valentines to bring your two different cocktails & giant rocky road for £30! Perfect for Valentines night in.
Thank you so much!
The Bhaji Express, Worcester.
New business in Worcestershire, Vegan friendly & utterly delicious.
The chickpea curry was our favourite but both curry’s were full of flavour! We could have definitley eaten more of the curry. The Chickpea dish was so flavoursome and not too spicy, We do enjoy spice but always want to taste all the flavours too and you certainly could.
We loved the pakoras & samosas with the dip, we couldn’t get enough of those. Even the rice was packed full of deliciousness! We really enjoyed the whole meal, and for £12.50 it felt like a bargain.
Head over to their Facebook & Instagram and give them some love!
We thoroughly enjoyed everything from Living on the Veg!
You wouldn’t believe it was all vegan.
Living on the Veg is based in Malvern, Worcestershire. All of their containers are compostable too! Head over to their page & give them a like - I’ve just seen the cauliflower gyros which sound amazing
I know lots of people choose vegan lifestyle, but it’s not really my cup of tea, I love cheese & steak too much, however I really was gobsmacked the amount of flavour packed into these dishes.
We really enjoyed these beautiful overnight oats, but you wouldn’t have known they were vegan, they were so creamy, jam packed full of flavour. We practically scraped the bowl clean & we couldn't wait for the rest of the day
The flapjack was packed full of fruit with some dark chocolate drizzled on the top.
The satay noodles were delicious we could have eaten those again and again and we didn’t miss meat or dairy! These could have been eaten hot or cold.
The creaminess of the curry was incredible, I often make a vegan curry but that’s it, nothing else is vegan generally in my house, but it has inspired me to make a few more dishes vegan friendly.
The banana loaf was light and airy and the toffee sauce really complimented the sponge.
The meals all come with a nutritional sheet too which I think is really good!
Thank you Rhian, it was absolutely beautiful. ￼Even if you aren't vegan, give living on the veg a try!
When your van looks this good, you know you are in for a treat! I've been following these guys since they stripped the van and announced they were making tacos!
We wanted to be the first to taste them as they sounded so good! We opted for the breakfast burritos to start, these were so filling. They were packed full of everything you could want in a burrito. Bacon, Sausage, Egg, Fried Potato, Cheese, Avocado Salsa, Chipotle Sauce. This really was delicious and filled us up for the day.
We also tried the The Carlos (Chicken Tacos) & The Diego (Beef Tacos). The Diego, Marinated Beef, Salsa, Fresh Coriander, Squeeze of Lime. These were simple & tasty. the lime made the tacos really fresh. The Carlos, Spicy Rubbed Chicken, Avocado Salsa & Lime Mayo. These were sensational, every mouthful was pure bliss.
Check out their Facebook page / Instagram for where they will be next, you are in for a treat!
