Experiencing the hotel dining plan at Butlins Bognor Regis

AD | Butlins provided us with a dining plan during our stay When visiting Butlins there are lots of different choices when it comes to food. If you’re staying in an apartment or similar you might want to go self-catering, or, you might choose from the DineAround, Premium or Food Court dining plans. As part of our holiday, we had the Hotel dining plan, which is available if you stay at the Shoreline Hotel or the Ocean Hotel at Butlins Bognor Regis.

A seaside lunch at the Tides Restaurant in Cromer

AD | Complimentary meal We’re so lucky to have so many wonderful places to eat here in Norfolk. When in Cromer though somewhere most people visit at least once is the Cromer Pier, which also has it’s very own restaurant. The Tides Restaurant has just launched a brand new menu and we visited over the weekend to give it a try.

Restaurant review: The Station Smokehouse, Wroxham

Sometimes, it can be easy to go to the same restaurants you know and love. This is exactl what me and a friend usually do when we go out for a meal. However, a couple of weeks ago we decided to try The Station Smokehouse in Wroxham as they had 50% off burgers on a Monday. I can’t resist a discount.

Restaurant review: Smith’s Bar & Grill, Paddington

AD | complimentary meal On our stay in London last week we had a fabulous morning with GoBoat in Paddington and were looking for somewhere close by to have lunch afterwards. We were invited to have lunch at Smith’s Bar & Grill which is also located in Paddington so this was a great time for us to try it out.

A family pub lunch at The King’s Head, Wroxham

Being a non-driving family we always like to find places in Norfolk that we can get to either by bus or train. One of our favourite places to visit is Wroxham as it’s only a 10 minute train ride away and then a short walk into town. Usually, when we go here we have a McDonald’s and then feed the ducks but this time we did something different. We booked a pub lunch at The King’s Head.

Seaside afternoon tea at The Assembly House, Norwich

On of my absolutely favourite places to go in Norwich is The Assembly House. I fell in love from my very first afternoon tea there and have been back so many times since then and even had an overnight stay last year. The great thing about The Assembly House is that they change the afternoon tea fairly often and they’re usually themed as well. During May half term we took Erin as a treat to enjoy a seaside themed afternoon tea.

Celebrating Our 7th Wedding Anniversary At The Assembly House

Yesterday was mine and John’s 7 year wedding anniversary. For the past few years we had been going to Center Parcs during this week but now that Erin is in reception we are no longer able to go on term time breaks. One of my favourite places in Norwich is The Assembly House, somewhere I have been for afternoon tea quite a few times now. They have had an offer on recently that included a stay in any of the rooms, afternoon tea, a bottle of fizz in the room and breakfast the next morning
