Red Letter Days Days Out Together Gift Box Review

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 Together gift box from Red

Restaurant Review: Eric’s Fish And Chips

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 spaces outside, one of which

Trying The New Menu At Turtle Bay

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 would be okay. Luckily, the

Restaurant Review: Frankie and Benny’s Ipswich

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. We had our table booked

Buyagift Experience: 3 Course Meal At Prezzo Ipswich

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 Hollywood and Zizzi. When I

Restaurant Review: COSMO Norwich

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 in Norwich which sounded ideal

Testing The New Children’s Menu At Turtle Bay

Disclaimer: We received a complimentary meal for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  It’s been quite a while since we managed to get into Norwich for a family day out. John works a lot of Saturdays and Sunday is his swimming day with Erin so that doesn’t leave us with a whole lot of time. We were determined to get out before Christmas though so last Friday we headed into the city to watch a screening of Zog and some lunch. Somewhere we hadn’t been to for a while is Turtle Bay and they now have a new

Buy A Gift Experience: Planet Hollywood Meal For Two

When we go away, whether that be for a week or a night, we like to eat out and treat ourselves a bit. Somewhere we have really enjoyed previously in other countries is Planet Hollywood but neither of us had ever been to the one in London. We had a Buy A Gift voucher for a Two Course Meal for Two with Drinks at Planet Hollywood so this was the perfect time to use it. Using the voucher was really simple. After it was delivered I went on to the Buy A Gift website where I could find the restaurant’s phone number
