Over the weekend I hosted a joint baby shower for my 2 sister in laws at Jamesons’s as Baby H is due 2 cousins within a month of each other (both mine and Keith’s brothers are expecting). We chose Sheffield as it was a nice middle meet up.
We went to The Wheatsheaf a few Sundays ago to have a pre-Christmas meal with some friends and their families. Our friends had been and they really like it there so we gave it a go.
Last weekend we took Baby H on a day trip to Meadowhall as I needed to visit the Apple Store. While we waited for my repair to be completed we decided to have some lunch at Coal Grill & Bar.
The Cod Scallops is originally a fish and chips shop based in Wollaton in Nottingham. However, not too long ago Long Eaton got our very own branch! They were actually 3rd in the 2016 National Fish and Chips Awards and a Finalist in the 2018 awards.
At the weekend we visited Lagan with some friends of ours for a late dinner. Lagan has only been open since the first May bank holiday weekend and is where the old post office used to be on Chilwell Road in Beeston. It is a branch of Mewar Haveli in Radcliffe (we’ve never been but have been told its very good) that serves Indian tapas!
Back in May we visited my brother and his wife in Leeds. They took us out for a lovely meal at Ecco Pizzeria. We went to the Roundhay branch but I am told they also have a branch in Headingley.
Earlier this month my husband and I visited Risley Park for our anniversary dinner. He’s been several times with his brother and father but this was my first time. Although we’d gone after 8pm it was absolutely rammed which was a good indication that its a popular place to visit.
On Saturday night we were out with friends and visited Marrakesh. This was the 2nd time I’d been as the first time was several years ago with the very same friends. Its on Chapel Bar in the city centre just off Market Square. We entered the restaurant fairly late (close to 9pm) and were seated quickly as the restaurant wasn’t full. We were sat near the back of the restaurant.
Earlier this month we decided to give the Street Food Club a go. Its been open in the Intu Victoria Centre Shopping Centre for a while now but because of its location we’ve never been bothered. However, the husband saw some photos on Facebook of food served there and we thought we’d try it. We’ve also tried a similar concept in Leeds.
