The Champagne Afternoon Tea at The Ivy, York

Ever since The Ivy opened their doors in York about a year ago, I’ve been desperate to visit. I was kindly invited to visit a couple of weeks ago to try their Limited Edition Poppy Afternoon Tea with my Mum and it was well worth the visit. Throughout November, there was an incredible installation outside of the restaurant with over 2,000 poppies to commemorate 100 years since the end of the first world war. The Limited Edition Poppy Afternoon Tea was been served alongside the installation to support The Royal British Legion’s North East and Yorkshire branch.  You’ve probably heard…

A Luxury Stay and Dining Experience at Hipping Hall

Last month, my boyfriend and I spent a couple of days exploring the Lake District. We stayed at Hipping Hall which is just on the outskirts of Kirkby Longdale and a short drive to the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales. It’s in a good location for exploring so many different areas, we were mainly focusing on visiting the Lake District and it took around 30 minutes from Ambleside. Hipping Hall is actually quite a small residence with every room whether it’s one of the six rooms in the main house, stables or cottages being different. On arrival, we were greeted…

Tasting the new menu at The Cosy Club, York

A few weeks ago, I headed over to York to try out the new menu at The Cosy Club. The restaurant is located down Fossgate in one of my favourite areas and if you’re familiar with York, you might remember that this property used to be a huge vintage store! I’ve previously dined at The Cosy Club before but only from their lunchtime menu which is served until 5pm and has some deals! It was my boyfriends first time here and we were both excited to see what was on the new menu. There was also a new drinks menu…

The Macdonald Windsor Hotel & Caleys Scottish Steakhouse

I have wanted to visit Windsor for such a long time and after a few days in Brighton and London, we had the perfect opportunity. My Mum and I boarded a train from Paddington and within 40 minutes we arrived in Windsor. During our trip, we were invited to stay at the Macdonald Windsor Hotel which is conveniently located right across from Windsor Castle. If you want to see all about my trip to Windsor Castle, you can read all about it here. Although Windsor is quite a small town, you literally couldn’t be more central than this hotel. This…
