    Burgering Up at The Brunswick in Leeds

    A burger is always a safe bet if nothing else on the menu stands out but sometimes all you want is a burger. If that’s the case, I can highly recommend going to The Brunswick in Leeds. Just on the outskirts of city centre this corner pub offers a wide variety of local and international beers and serves seasonal locally sourced food. At the moment, they have a killer burger menu with a generous Wednesday offer: beer, burger and chips for a tenner. The Brunswick Burgers You may have seen one of my latest Instagram posts saying I’ve had the best burger ever. The beef burger at The Brunswick comes…

  • The New Inn at Scarcroft entrance

    Hetchell Woods & The New Inn | A Day Out in Scarcroft

    One of the reasons I love living in Leeds is that you’re only a few minutes away from the countryside. At the start of the bank holiday weekend, I discovered a new area: Scarcroft. It’s a village north east of Leeds, on the way to Wetherby. Prior to being sent an invitation to The New Inn, I had no idea this place existed. In fact, I confused it with Seacroft. Can you blame me? Googling what to do in Scarcroft, the first result recommended to visit Hetchell Woods so that’s what we did, before stuffing our faces at The New Inn at Scarcroft. Hetchell Woods Hetchell Woods is well hidden…

  • Archive Leeds

    Archive | New Independent Coffee Shop in Leeds

    The longest and most boring stretch of my bike ride to and from work is along Kirkstall Road. I can cycle for minutes thinking there’s no life to it. Behind the scenes and if you looks closer, there totally is! Most popular is likely to be Temple Coffee & Donuts. Although hidden, it’s attracting people to the area which is great. Starting to bridge its gap from city centre, on the opposite end of the road, Archive* has opened up. I spotted it from the sidelines during its development and not long after it opened up, I was excited to check it out. You bet I love the yellow, black…

    Bottomless Brunch at Pieminister

    Bottomless brunch is so popular now that chains like Pieminister is jumping on the bandwagon. Bottomless brunch at Pieminister* is great! You get a bigger portion than at other places, the equal amount of alcohol as anywhere else, but all to a more affordable price. Sure, it might not be as instagrammable as avocado on toast (although this is an option here) but a breakfast pie fills you up and lines your stomach for the bottomless booze. Definitely a great alternative if you want to spend less money and walk away tipsy but not over do it. Leeds is one of the Pieminister cities offering bottomless brunch at the moment.…

  • Fire Lake Restaurant radisson Blu

    Fire Lake Restaurant at Radisson Blu in Leeds

    I have mentioned Fire Lake restaurant in a previous post here, when I went restaurant hopping in The Light. I’m sure I also mentioned that it’s a hotel restaurant, belonging to Radisson Blu. Now, the thought of going to a hotel restaurant for a meal might put you off but I’m hoping this post will change that. More and more hotels, at least in Leeds, are stepping up their restaurant game. Soap Factory for example doesn’t send that hotel vibe, neither does @LS1 which I’ll feature in a post next week and from what I’ve seen in pictures, Dakota’s restaurant and food looks amazing! This also applies to Radisson Blu’s…
