When Polly Met Fergie…

When We Love Peterborough met up with When Polly met Fergie...  Hello meat eaters! You aren’t going to believe this but you have, HAVE, to eat here! We walked into town to visit this new and popular restaurant for the first time on Friday evening at 7.30pm. The location in The Arcade is ideal for this small, niche restaurant. The decor is dark but vibrant and the atmosphere downstairs is ideal as you get the jazz flowing down from upstairs.... Tonight we were #VeganVirgins but jumped straight in to try all 3 courses... so here we go: Drinks on

Healthy lunches on the way

Daniel (owner) and Elisha will be pleased to see you in a new independent food place on Midgate. Green Bay Salads only opened last Thursday ago...they are offering healthy salad food as an alternative to the other food offerings for lunches in Peterborough. Peterborough-born Daniel wanted to be different in his food offerings as he realised that people’s food habits are changing more for the healthy options. Along with this he wanted people to have a CHOICE in what goes in their salad rather than just being given one completely and then having to pick bits out and throw them away. Everything

Just tucking into some delightful sandwiches at The Mad Hatters Tea Party Fundraiser this afternoon at the lovely Sibson Inn which has been sponsored by Revamp Limited. There’s a beautifully big marquee here at this country location on The Great North Road...and inside a host of goodies ready to eat. Each table has been beautifully fitted out with a different theme from Alice in Wonderland. There's a host of things going on too to keep the kids occupied as this is who it is really aimed at anyway. We have a juggler and a wandering Mad Hatter card magician,

Trying something new…

2018-04-19T21:08:00+00:00April 19th, 2018|General, Great Food|

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!

2018-04-13T19:17:07+00:00April 13th, 2018|General, Great Food|

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!

2018-02-06T16:17:06+00:00February 5th, 2018|Great Food, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

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

2017-10-14T18:20:55+00:00October 14th, 2017|Chocolate Heaven, Great Food, Must Do-Visit-See, Uniqueness|

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

2017-09-22T15:04:23+00:00September 4th, 2017|Great Food, New Restaurants|

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
