Once a month I go for lunch with a friend and we generally pick somewhere I have never been before. For our meal in December we wanted something really festive but no restaurant menu really stood out to us. My friend had been to The Assembly House before and suggested it as an option as they had a festive afternoon tea menu. At £22.95 (or £45 for two) it wasn’t a cheap option but we both wanted something special for a pre-Christmas treat. The Assembly House is an absolutely stunning Georgian venue in the centre
AD | Gifted experience My Mum has done a lot for us over the years and this year I wanted to do something really special for her close to Christmas. When she comes to visit most of the time is taken up by Erin and we don’t get a lot of time for just us any more. So, along with a hotel stay, I sorted out a visit to the theatre and out for a meal while we were in London. Being such a big fan of experience vouchers I arranged this with a Days Out
AD | Gifted meal Being from Grimsby I am pretty picky about my fish and chips. Since moving to Norfolk 6 years ago there has only been a few places where I will happily eat haddock. So, when I was invited to see what Eric’s Fish and Chips (Holt) was like I was excited. I’d heard good things and couldn’t wait to see if the food lived up to the reputation. Eric’s can be found on Fish Hill (yes, really) in Holt, which is just off the high street. There are a couple of parking
AD | Gifted Last week John was off work and I was determined to make the most of it by planning some great family days out and meals that we wouldn’t go for otherwise. Somewhere that John always enjoys, and is one of his favourites, is Turtle Bay. We had a day planned in Norwich so it seemed like the perfect time to book a table. We had a table booked for 4pm but the heat on that particular day was getting to us so we arrived about half an hour early, hopeful that it
Whenever we go on holiday we always like to try to eat at the options on site, or at least at some of them. These are the options available at Haven Seashore: Coast House Restaurant The Coast House restaurant is where I was looking forward to eating at the most. The Coast House is new for 2019 and it can be found right next to the Shore Water Park. When we checked in for our holiday we were told that it is table service and you need to book in advance. You can either phone,
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
AD | Complimentary meal provided John and I love eating out but now that we have Erin choosing a restaurant isn’t always so easy. Erin doesn’t really do well with restaurants because she hates to be sat still. Anywhere we go she lasts about 2 minutes on her chair before wanting to explore, dance or generally create a bit of madness. Waiting for the food to arrive can turn into an absolute nightmare and John and I end up more stressed out than anything else. We were recently invited to try COSMO Authentic World Kitchen
