The Medieval Banquet, London, UK

Throughout the meal we were entertained by various acts. There were singers, jesters, jugglers, dancers, acrobats and live medieval music. The acts moved around so you could always see and you got to see everything.

Kung Fu Oriental Buffet Restaurant, Southport.

The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. The buffet was kept well stocked and clean. Staff worked tirelessly in the background cleaning up, sorting out the buffet and clearing empty plates. We all had a good meal and my sons Chinese food of choice – duck pancakes, was available in abundance!

The Old Nags Head, Edale, UK

A short walk up the hill from Edale railway station, The Old Nags head in  Derbyshire marks the start of the Pennine Way. In fact whilst we were in there a group were celebrating the return of two people who had walked the whole Pennine Way over the last couple of weeks!  The Old Nags…

Coast to Coast, Manchester Trafford Centre, UK

Coast to Coast is a restaurant listed on my Gourmet Society card where I can get 50% off food. We went to try it out last night.  The restaurant serves an American style menu and it sounded really nice. It was about ten minutes before someone came to take our drink order so we ordered…

The Lea Marston Hotel, Sutton Coldfield, UK

The Lea Marston Hotel is a family owned 4 star hotel in Sutton Coldfield. We checked in at 7pm and on finding out the spa closed at 8pm, decided to go straight for a swim. The spa offers all sorts of treatments although these unfortunately stop at 6pm on a Saturday so we just used…

The Vienna Coffee House, Manchester

I spent four years of my childhood in Somerset. Running around on the moors followed by afternoon tea was a frequent outing for my family and a firm memory for me. Every now and again I feel like re-living this part of my childhood and set off to find a traditional afternoon tea. Today’s quest…

Maggiano’s Little Italy, Orlando

Maggiano’s Little Italy is our favourite Italian restaurant in Orlando. We walked in through the back door as it is opposite the multi story car park (Maggiano’s Little Italy will validate your ticket so you can park for free) and along the beautiful corridor to the lobby where we were greeted. We were shown to…

Balloons from Denzil Jackson

Recently, whilst dining at Chuy’s in Kissimmee, we had the pleasure of meeting Denzil Jackson of Latex Arts. Denzil was going round the tables,  making balloon models for the kids. The models he made were absolutely brilliant, the children asked for anything they could think of and to their delight he expertly fashioned Deadpool, a…

Black Angus Steakhouse, Kissimmee, Orlando

We have driven past Black Angus Steakhouse a few times and pointed out the life size cowboy outside. This time we thought we would give it a try. We were greeted with a smile and our very friendly waitress seated us straight away. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere. We were sat in a comfy…
