We received a unique dining experience tonight as a pre-customer to the official opening night tomorrow (Tuesday) for The Marigold Tavern. It has only been open for 2 days on a soft launch. As the staff and chefs get used to their conscience menu to perfection. Once the home to House of Feasts, this large building has been redecorated to accommodate the style and colours of India. You're surrounded by some beautiful murals, figure paintings and a gorgeous shade of Marigold yellow on the walls. It's a large restaurant with plenty of tables to choose from and a different

Isn’t it great when something pops up on social and it interests you to do more…? I saw a post about wine growing in the UK which wasn’t far from Peterborough, so it sparked my curiosity further. So, last week we went along to the The Rutland Vineyard to see for myself. It’s located in the beautiful backroads of Ketton just up the A1 not far from Stamford. It started off a lovely sunny day as I entered into their small cafe. Well decorated and set out with tables, chairs and tall bench seats. The menu is small; concentrating

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

Mushroom Cappuccino! Are You Mad??

We were invited to tantalise our taste buds at 1498 The Spice Affair. It was opened by Lloyd 18 months ago, yet we'd never been - a little hesitant that the dishes might be too spicy for our palate - however, we shouldn't have been as our experience this evening was anything but hot - for us! Hidden away down an alleyway off Priestgate is the entrance to the restaurant where you are greeted with not only colourful street art of Goan villages and a market scene - a great opportunity to take a selfie before or after eating

Rooster & Redneck – Too Much To Handle

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

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

Katana makes a spark!

#FIRST LOOK inside Katana Peterborough… It looks amazing with 3 Teppanyaki grill spaces for you to sit at and enjoy watching food cooked before your eyes for a fabulous experience. A downstairs bubbles bar draws you in and is where you can have cocktails before you eat, or whilst you eat from that particular menu. The space looks enormous due to a clever mirroring effect, but it's lovely and cosy with booths and tables depending on your party size. If you have something to celebrate or a large group you can use their private room ‘Sakura Suite’ which is

So I had a little walk up to the city centre to see, properly, what the inside of Las Iguanas was like and there's quite a few of you trying it out already I see. Well, what a splash of colour that is in the city centre!!! Las Iguanas Peterborough restaurant has opened today (14th November 2022) on Church Street next to Cathedral Square. As soon as you go in you are hit by colour - It’s bright all the way through. Sit down and take a selfie in the las Iguanas profile chair, there’s one in every restaurant

Pizza-borough Strikes Again!

What can I say? FrancoManca has opened at lunchtime today and it’s heaving. You’re obviously pizza fans…. !!! Newly opened today, we've been following their creation day by day on the corner of Cathedral Square right in the heart of the city centre. We lunched at 12 today, as it opened and grabbed a seat inside but next to the opened double doors - on a nice day like this it gives the restaurant a lovely Al-fresco feel. We tried their Bites To Start:  Aubergine Parmigiana at £5.50 and the Free range spicy lamb sausage, roasted potatoes cooked with
