Liverpool Gin Distillery

The eagerly anticipated Liverpool Gin Distillery opened on Castle Street last month and with Christmas just around the corner I had the perfect excuse to buy some tickets for a snoop around.


The January Sales (Edible Edition)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: January is no time to start going cold turkey on everything you enjoy. I can't think of anything worse than having to go back to work after all the festivities with a vow of a New Year diet, a booze-free month or a spending ban looming over me. January is an excellent time for eating since everywhere is quiet and there are bucket load of special offers on.


Red Dog Saloon

You may well have heard of Red Dog Saloon, they've been open on Bold Street for a while now but I'm ashamed to say my first visit was just last week. I'm not really sure why, but I suppose in the flurry of new restaurants opening this year this one just slipped through the net. 

After all, I am just one tiny person and there's only so much eating my waistline (and my bank balance) will allow. With Liverpool now crammed full of new and exciting food-stuffs, American food sadly falls towards the lower end of my list.


Woolton Peach

You may recall from my previous post that there's been a few exciting things going on round my ways recently and one of them is the arrival of Woolton Peach.


Pig and Fig

When we moved out of our flat in the city centre 18 months ago, my number one concern was that I'd be completely out of the loop with all of the fun-food things going on in town. Thankfully, despite my fears,  there's actually loads going on outside of the L1 boundary at the moment and there's been not one but two incredible restaurant pop-ups right here in the suburbs over the past few weeks. The first of which was the inaugural event by Pig & Fig.


Liverpool Christmas Specials

Now that the 1st of December has dawned, advent calendars have been cracked open and somewhere out there our beloved Bublé  is shaking the dust of his tux,  I think it's safe to declare that the festive season has well and truly begun.

I'm glad to report that restaurants across the city are embracing the spirit of all things Christmas and have been announcing edible Christmas specials by the minute. Father Christmas better be putting me on the nice list because I've spent hours trawling the web and kindly found you all the best ones.

Revisiting Rumi

You'd be forgiven if you said you'd never been to Rumi by Bukhara. In fact, I'd forgive you even if you said you'd walked past but never been in, because on the outside this place is very unassuming. Like I mentioned the last time I went to Bukhara, this place looks a lot more like a cafe-come-takeaway than it does your typical Indian restaurant.




Roll up, roll up! There's a circus in town and this one is strictly for the grown-ups. I am, of course, talking about Albus Wolfgang's Spectaculum based inside the big top tent that has sprung up inside the Cain's Brewery village.


A Very Whittard Christmas

If you're currently in the depths of Christmas shopping despair and are looking for extra special stocking fillers pretty enough to put a smile on anybody’s face then let me point you in the direction of Whittard



I'm well aware that I won't be the first to tell you about Rudy's. Castle Street's newest pizzeria has been the name on everybody's lips for the past few weeks and this weekend they've finally opened their doors to a flood of Instagram pictures, a multitude of excited tweets and a resounding 'YES!' from all of us lucky beggars that managed to get down there on opening night. 

So why the excitement? Rudy's already have two really popular Manchester branches and now they've taken the plunge and set up shop in Liverpool in the huge, (now empty) building where CAU used to be- and it's good. Really, really good.

Ten of the Best Liverpool Roasts

As the weather gets colder, the nights draw in and the general public willpower starts to wear thin, there's only one weekend fix that is sure to cure any ailment- a proper good roast dinner.
 Huge, comforting healthy (ish?)- it's the only thing that can rescue an otherwise dull Autumnal weekend. 
If you're in need of a Sunday saviour, here's 10 places I'd recommend for a good roast dinner in Liverpool.



When I find somewhere I like to eat I can be really annoying about it. Any of you that have had to suffer through me harping on about how much I love Salt House Bacaro will know exactly what I'm talking about here. Well, in the interests of giving you all fair and advanced warning, I thought I'd let you know that I've found a new Italian favourite. In fact I liked to so much it had me browsing Skyscanner for flights to Tuscany as soon as I got home.
