London Living with an Alternative Twist!






Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham.

I’ve saved the very best to last! Well the last of the food posts that is! Annie’s Burger Shack in The Navigation is quite simply the best burger to grace this planet.  Even MSN Men and Shortlist agree. With a whopping 26 burgers on the menu there’s a tough choice of what to pick and after much deliberating we were settled on our choices.  After…

The Burleigh Arms, Cambridge.

If you are looking for a killer Sunday dinner then this is it! The super roast at The Burleigh Arms in Cambridge.  With 2 breast of chicken, three types of vegetables, 5 potatoes and 3 yorkshire puddings, I was stuffed to the brim. The rest of the menu looked delicious too, but having this made myself and the partner in crime decide that 2014 is…

Pitcher and Piano, Nottingham.

I know there are Pitcher and Piano bars all over England but this one needs a mention, why I hear you ask… It’s a converted church!! The venue is amazing, we were only going to pop in to have a look but ended up staying for a good few drinks!  The staff were really friendly, and the prices weren’t too bad either. I know this…

Swanky Franks, Sheffield.

If you’re looking for value for money and great quality then you need to visit Swanky Franks.  We had a great meal deal of three courses for £15.50 and this was one of the first burger to defeat me!!

Dog Walking Kit.

When it comes to dog/pet safety I’m a huge fan, so when I was offered by the lovely team over at Pet Shop Bowl to try out this dog walking kit I jumped at the chance. One of our pups, Chungy, has a poorly leg and is being operated on this week so we let Chess try out the kit.  She’s the live wire of…

Lo Spuntino, York.

As Arsenal (not my team, sadly the partner in crime supports them) were playing we were wanting somewhere really close to our hotel, that was quick!  Lo Spuntino was perfect for just that! We had one course each and drink and we were both really happy with the quality of food!  The place was packed, service quick and friendly, and was really cheap!…
