Find out who is Spencer and why do we want to eat with him? (That’s eat with, not eat him).

Review: The Anchor Aspley Guise

The Anchor is a pub and restaurant in the village of Aspley Guise on the outskirts of the borough of Milton Keynes. Under new management it has recently undergone a very expensive face lift to the tune of £600k that has completely overhauled this village pub into an exciting and sophisticated social spot.

How could I resist heading over to Aspley Guise to see exactly what’s been happening in this laid back village…?!

Review: Deliveroo

Rain day + lazy sofa cuddles with my toddler + insane pregnancy appetite = refusing to budge and ordering food in for dinner

…Hey! It is Friday.. give a girl a break. 

I’ve heard of Deliveroo for a while now. They offer food delivery to your door from big name restaurants in your local area who ordinarily are not in a position to offer home delivery.

Review: The Swan at Salford

Date night isn’t a regular occurrence but when you’re invited to a pretty village gastropub with a good reputation and native LOBSTER is on the specials menu, you grab your husband, get him in a shirt and get rolling down the road.

Mmm my first #MKBloggersBrunch

When you’re a blogger in cyberspace it can feel like you’re speaking into a dark and lonely void. You bore your friends and annoy your eating companions with your instagramming ways. 

Can’t wait for date night!

I am so excited for tomorrow’s date night with my wonderful husband.

We don’t get to go out just the two of us all that often but when we get the chance I cherish the time alone. Quality time just being us, talking, being silly and cracking lots of jokes.

We are going to The Swan at Salford . A cute, village gastropub that in the handful of visits I’ve enjoyed there has proven itself to be well worth the little drive out of MK for. 

I have been invited to check out their weekend specials to celebrate native lobster season. 

Lobster is easily one of my favourite treats to eat. It feels special. It’s romantic (it always reminds me of the Friends episode where Phoebe likens Ross and Rachel to a pair of lobsters destined to be together forever) and it’s just damn tasty.

Between 18th – 20th August there is the chance to enjoy native lobster grilled with garlic butter and skinny fries.

Between 25th – 27th August you can choose to indulge with butter poached native lobster served with new potatoes and samphire.

Pictures above are what The Swan are advertising. I can’t wait to see how they are executed and taste for myself.

So it feels like the perfect date night ahead. Delicious food (I hope), in a wonderful village pub on a British Summer’s evening and of course, my very own lobster (aww, mushy LouBou).
