A memorable Mother's Day feast.
Welcome to post two of our month-long trip around the North with TransPennine Express.
A vegan dish you'll love.
Where do I start with the most amazing lunch of my life?! Truly. The company. Food. Ambience. Service. The delightful energy that cheesily fed my soul as much as my tum (!). I shut my eyes and found myself on the French Rivieria in the middle of London. The Dalloway Terrace in the Bloomsbury Hotel is EVERYTHING and more.
Things you wouldn't expect to find in Iceland!
We adore Beningbrough Hall, just outside of York, a short drive from where we live-it's one of those majestic baroque mansions with grounds that prides itself on being warm and child-friendly-and it is that. It also makes you feel utterly serene the moment you enter. An ideal antidote to Christmas mania.
Sunday saw us wrap up warm from the the bitter 2 degree cold, and scoot off to nearby York for Sunday lunch at the newly opened Refectory Kitchen and Terrace in the Royal York Hotel.
Two weekends ago saw this family head to the Yorkshire Coast for a relaxing break to celebrate the launch of Esso Synergy Fuels at the breathtaking 100-acre Raithwaite Estate, a place we'd never visited before, but instantly fell in love with.
