Tonight we were lucky enough to be invited to try out the Middleton's Steakhouse & Grill's new Spring menu... what a treat! They’ve added some wonderful new things on their menu to suit all tastes including a larger range of vegetarian dishes. Philip served us at a table outside so we could enjoy the warm spring air as it had been such a sunny day. We started with the Chicken Liver Pâté £5.45 (smooth pâté, onion chutney and warm sourdough) a large portion of pâté that contrasted well against the chutney and the smoothness of the pâté worked well with

Friday 13th Lucky for Us!

So it may be Friday 13th and unlucky for some, but it definitely wasn't for us as we were 'lucky' enough to be asked to come and try the Dragonfly Hotel's new menu. Now, some of you may not know it, or may actually pass it by and not give it another thought.... but maybe next time you should get yourself down there as it has a lovely location right next to the Rowing Lake (off Thorpe Road) with some great views from their bar area and restaurant. When the weather is good, the doors are open and you

What an Afternoon Treat!

Wow, what more can I say, than, "That was absolutely delicious!" I've just come back from an afternoon tea treat with my 'DIGESTIVELY-CHALLENGED' family members and it was a complete success. The Great Northern Hotel create afternoon teas like most other hotels do, but before you sign off with no interest, theirs have a BIG difference... GLUTEN-FREE / COELIACS / DIABETICS / MEN please read on... ! Your table awaits in the 1852 Restaurant for something you've probably dreamed of and more. So, let's start the ball rolling on this glorious afternoon delight... If you're a MAN you may

Chocolate Making & City College

A little while back the City College Peterborough brought out their 2017/2018 catalogue for small courses and the one to catch my eye, obviously, was:  'Sweets & Chocolate Making: Would you like to be able to make your own handmade chocolates, sweets and marzipan fruits? This short course will demonstrate how to make your own sweets and how to box them to give as gifts.' Errr - yes! Even though I've not done a course at the college for around 12 years I booked in anticipation of learning something new! (Just £22 for 3 hours - bargain!) And, what a

Middleton’s Steak House First Taster

FIRST TASTER! Welcome to Middletons Steakhouse & Grill Peterborough Soft lighting, grey, red and black classic styling, bare brick, laminate wood and black metal give Middletons a modern edge with a warm close feel. Candles lit on the tables for the evening give a somewhat romantic atmosphere with not-overpowering background music. You can just about see into the kitchen where all the chefs are preparing food. The waiting staff are plentiful and attentive. Manager Gary took us on a tour downstairs where there's more seating for around 65 covers, it's definitely great for parties down there as it's private. And

Opening night for Pizza Pots & Pints

Prosecco glasses at the ready... it's the opening night of the Queen's Head - the new Pizza Pots & Pints and we've come away happy and full-bellied. The owners have definitely done a #GreatJob out of changing a town centre listed building into a buzzing, casual pub-dining experience. The features of the old building have been retained with wooden beams, fireplaces and brick and old-tile floors, whilst styling it with a modern feel. There's a couple of reminders that you're inside a regal establishment with reminders of the good HRH lady herself. You may even spot the door to Buckingham Palace
