Leave The Herd Behind

I was invited along to try out Black Sheep Coffee which has just opened in the centre of Queensgate in Peterborough today, a franchise which is being run by Peterborough family Ajay, Nicky and Amar. The first thing to note is that it’s a self ordering system. Simply go to your nearest vacant screen (there are 3 at each entrance) scroll through huge choice of coffee, cold drinks, milkshakes, waffles, bagels, breakfast buns, desserts and much more from the ordering screen, pay by card and then you just wait for your order to be called. You collect it from

Come into the Sanctuary

2023-06-30T14:36:44+01:00June 30th, 2023|General, Great Food, Uniqueness|

It's not very often when you walk into a new business that you find out that it's actually 4 in 1! That happened to me yesterday, 29th June, when I popped into a local new coffee shop on Oundle Road called The Sanctuary. Vickie and Lauren run the newly opened The Sanctuary where they are offering coffee, crystals and cake. It opened last Friday. On entering you are instantly hit with sparkle and colour from Vickie's 'Crystal Boutique' which has been situated here for around 15 months. There are lots of different pieces for different remedies, for healing, for

Sweet Tooth?

Saw that a new shop had opened on Park Road. Town end near the old Beales store so I thought I'd pop in on Tuesday to see exactly what it was all about. Sabrina has been open for 6 weeks now, she tried to open a while ago but found she just wasn't quite ready, but now she is and is waiting for all you sweet fans to go and see her. The shop sells lots of brightly coloured sweets which you'll find around the shop in large glass jars. You can really go to town and do a

Rooster & Redneck – Too Much To Handle

2023-03-31T09:51:15+01:00March 31st, 2023|General, Great Food, New Restaurants, News|

We were invited to go and try out Higgsy's in their new second location. Last November saw the opening of ‘The Hatch’ down on London Road at Norman Cross and has been so popular with the locals that they wanted to bring it into the centre. So their second outlet is now at Glo-golf, where it opened last week. Run by Adam and Amber, I asked why burgers? The simple answer was that Adam wanted to create something he liked eating and the idea of high quality burgers was the way forward rather than plain offerings from other outlets

Student Food – Yes Please!

Surprise of the day, week, year… well life actually as I’ve never been. I saw a lovely event menu in November and completely forgot about it until I received a reminder email from Restaurant manager Francesca De Falco…it was a couple of night’s notice but I thought, yes I’m game - I want to try this out. Do you know what? I’m glad I did as I’ll definitely be back…. The Parcs restaurant is situated in Peterborough College and gives the students the chance to work and gain real-life experience. My expectations were not high and the menu sounded

Talking Dirty!

Did you know that Peters’ Cleaners was established in Peterborough in February 1963 by Peter Grist and his sons Peter and Paul making it one of the older businesses in the area? It has been providing dry cleaning and laundry services in Peterborough and Stamford for nearly 60 years. Congratulations to them. So what's on their horizon? Peters’ Cleaners is asking customers to ‘talk dirty’ to them as they launch a new pod near Bourne! After the success of their two cleaning pods in Peterborough, award-winning dry cleaning company Peters’ Cleaners has announced that a new pod will be

Eating out in the countryside: Woodnewton

2023-03-01T17:16:15+00:00February 19th, 2023|General, Great Food|

#OutAndAbout around the Peterborough area. Sometimes it's all about trying new places and there really is an abundance of choice when it comes to food in and around the Peterborough and surrounding area. We drove out to the west of Peterborough to a quaint small village called Woodnewton which I'd never heard of, let alone been to, and at the heart of it is a lovely restaurant called The White Swan. Originally built as an Inn in 1790 the White Swan has been a pub in the village over these many years, and is now owned and run by

Games & Community what a great mix.

Last week I took a visit over to Angle at Walton. If you don't know about them already, they are a gaming lounge for box games, war games, virtual reality, axe throwing and escape rooms. A complete complex for the community to come and use even if it's just for a coffee and a chat.   Their axe throwing (used to be at Peterborough One Retail Park) is now here too and it has ample lanes for groups to play. Grab an axe and aim at the board, most points wins. Simple really. You'll be paying £20 per hour

Bull’s Eye 180!!! At Glo-Golf

2023-02-02T13:00:37+00:00February 2nd, 2023|Days Out, Fun-for-all, General, Uniqueness|

We were invited along to a free hour of playing games at the newly renovated Glo-Golf on Wentworth Street, so needless to say we were happy to attend for some early 5pm entertainment on a Wednesday evening. The invitation was to play GloGolf's new darts games and to try out a game of shuffleboard. We loved it! The Glo Darts is an AR darts game which is the latest technology in social entertainment...the system detects where your darts land on and off the board.  They have a master VIP area for darts which is where we started off. Now I've
