Turtle Bay Norwich: New Menu Review

Over the past year we have been to Turtle Bay, Norwich for a few different meals. John is mad about their jerk ribs so we love to go back when we can. Just recently Turtle Bay have revamped their menu and we were invited to try out some of the new flavours. We went for our meal on a Sunday lunchtime at 11:30. Erin tends to get hungry very quickly when we’re out and about so I didn’t want to make her wait ages for lunch. For our starter John and I ordered the Vital Veggie Platter. John is trying

Restaurant Review: Hard Rock Cafe London

Having been to a couple of other Hard Rock Cafe restaurants elsewhere (Rome and Orlando) John and I thought it was a bit strange that we’d never been to Hard Rock Cafe London. We were in London a couple of weeks ago so we had the perfect opportunity! We arrived at close to 12pm when we thought the restaurant would be packed. Although it was  getting busy there wasn’t a wait for a table and we had plenty of choice of where we could sit. We were seated quite close to the toilet and baby changing which was perfect as

Restaurant Review: Bubba Gump Shrimp

Normally when John and I go to London, especially now we have Erin, we tend to eat at the same places. We like to pick places that we know are family friendly so that there are no surprises. However, on our most recent trip to London we decided to be brave and try somewhere new; Bubba Gump Shrimp. We arrived at about 4:15 for our table booked at 4:30 and the restaurant was pretty quiet. I guess we were quite early for a ‘normal’ dinner time but with Erin we need to eat quite early! We were shown to a

Cosmo Authentic World Kitchen, Norwich

When I lived in Nottingham while I was at university one of my favourite places to eat was a buffet restaurant called Peachy Keens. It was an all you can eat ‘everything’ kind of place and since moving away, I’ve missed it. I was so excited when I found out a Cosmo Authentic World Kitchen was opening in Norwich as it’s a very similar thing. Me, John and Erin all headed into Norwich for the day for my birthday last month and headed to Cosmo for when it opened at midday. It was a Sunday and I don’t think I

My London Getaway!

Last week I did something I didn’t think I’d do for a really long time. I went away for a couple of days without Erin or John. Part of realising that I have PND also meant that I realised that I need some me time now and again. So, I headed off to London for a night to see my sister and her fiance (Nat & Chris). It was also a kind of late birthday present too. I arrived late morning on the Thursday and we started off with a Wetherspoons breakfast before heading off to Jurassic Kingdom (Review coming

Giraffe World Kitchen, Norwich

A few weeks ago I needed to head into Norwich with Erin to get a Mother’s Day present and a couple of other bits. Normally if we do this I take her a sandwich or something and I grab myself something quick to eat. However, I felt like having lunch out with my girl but we hadn’t planned on anywhere to go. As we were walking by, I noticed that Giraffe had a children eat free offer! How could I resist? We went for lunch at 12 on the dot, even though Erin was fast asleep. Typical! Still, I was

The Library Restaurant, Norwich

I absolutely love finding new restaurants to go to when we go into Norwich. My sister and her fiance visit roughly every 6-8 weeks and we love to go out for lunch. John recently found us The Library Restaurant, even though unfortunately, he didn’t make the meal in the end! We had our table booked for 12pm as Erin came with us. She gets very grizzly when she’s hungry. No idea who she takes after there! When we arrived, we were shown to our table and asked if we wanted some chips brought over for Erin straight away so she

Christmas meal at the Beechwood Hotel

Living in a small town means that there aren’t many places to eat out, unless you want a pizza or Chinese takeaway. If you want to go out for a proper meal you have to go to a nearby town or into Norwich. For us, that adds £15 on to any kind of meal/ day out because of train fare. Our family have a tradition to go for a pre-Christmas meal. The weekend before Christmas my mum and sister came to stay and this is what we did. I chose the Beechwood Hotel where we live in North Walsham. Although it’s
