AD | We received a voucher to discount our meal Last week on our trip to Ipswich we did a bit of exploring on the day that we arrived and decided that eating dinner near the hotel would be the easiest option for us. We stayed at the Novotel hotel which is situated across the road from a leisure complex called Cardinal Park where there was a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant. Erin usually eats quite early but we figured we could eat a bit later if the restaurant was only a few minutes walk away.
AD | Gifted experience Whenever we travel John and I always like to look for the best deal or a way to save money. Something we have found numerous times is that buying vouchers in advance for meals can work out much cheaper than paying on the day. Just last week we headed to Ipswich for a few days and we wanted to have at least 1 meal booked and paid for in advance. In the past we have had a really good experience with Buyagift vouchers and have been to places such as Planet
With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year it means that John will be working and Erin will be at nursery so I’ll be spending the majority of the day on my own. So, when Buy A Gift got in touch to talk to us about their experiences perfect for Valentine’s Day we picked a three course meal at Prezzo to enjoy ourselves. My sister nicely offered to take Erin to the bowling alley in Norwich to play on the arcades while John and I shared our very first child free meal in two
Although I have had cakes from Patisserie Valerie before, it’s not somewhere I ever thought to go for Afternoon Tea. I’m not sure why! My sister came for a visit last week though and had purchased a Groupon voucher for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie in Norwich! Normally, this would have cost £25 but the voucher was £19, making a saving of £6. It’s not loads but at least it works out at less than £10 each. When we arrived we didn’t have to wait to be seated and instead just sorted ourselves out a table and
AD | Gifted meal Last week I spent a day in Cambridge with Katy from KatyKicker and her gorgeous daughter Daisy. We both arrived at around 11am and after a couple of hours of travelling on the train I was getting pretty hungry. Thanks to Greater Anglia and their #lettheadventurebegin campaign, we already had somewhere booked for lunch. I couldn’t wait to get to Pint Shop, Cambridge. (There is another location in Oxford) Pint Shop is about a 20 minute walk from Cambridge Station and only a minutes walk from the market and the Grand
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
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
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
