The Star Inn The City, York


Early in February 7 of us went to The Star Inn The City for a celebratory lunch after my brother’s civil wedding ceremony at the York Registry Office.

The Folly, Oxford


On Saturday it was my brother-in-law’s birthday so his girlfriend booked a table for us at The Folly in Oxford where they live. Its a lovely little restaurant/cafe that’s under the Folly Bridge. You go down some stairs on the Folly Bridge where you can find the restaurant. Its terrace floats on the River Thames and you can actually get on a cruise that leaves from the terrace if you so wish.

Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham


The first time I’d heard about Annie’s was when Annie left the Navigation Inn in Nottingham to set up her own premises in the Lace Market. I heard loads about her amazing burgers when she’d been in the Navigation Inn so was quite looking forward to trying her burgers on her own premises.

Ed’s Easy Diner Nottingham Victoria Centre, Nottingham


We decided to give Ed’s a go for a late lunch on New Years Day. We assumed that it wouldn’t be that crowded which was right. Therefore you usually expect that staff would be more attentive and service would be quite good! Unfortunately we were quite wrong.
