RECOMMENDATION | Bottle and Thyme, Chesterfield

22nd May 2019

For its size, Chesterfield is surprisingly well served by independent cafés and eateries, but Bottle and Thyme is definitely one of the best. With its rustic, shabby chic decor, you are immediately made welcome by the friendly, well-trained staff. Most importantly, in my bookis that they know how to make a great coffee. Proper baristas mean this is the place for some of the best coffee in Chesterfield. There’s far too tempting a selection of cakes and brownies (and they have a great ‘coffee and cake’ offer for £4, plus loyalty cards where you can earn free coffees and sandwiches). 

Bottle and Thyme

Food is served throughout the day. I’ve tended to visit for breakfast/brunch to make the most of their delicious breakfast menu. Honestly the best eggs Benedict I have ever eaten (and trust me, I’ve had a lot!). Other options include traditional cooked breakfasts, smashed avocado and poached eggs on toast with a sweet chilli drizzle or a very decadent French toast option. 

The lunch and evening food menus look equally tempting, but I’ve yet to try (it won’t be long I’m sure). Lunch options include a good range of sandwiches, burgers and their famous sharing boards. In the evening, it’s a more sophisticated affair.  Starters range from arancini to whole baked camembert with rosemary, hazelnuts, chilli jam and crostini. Mains include a bistro steak, spring rack of lamb and pan fried hake. All the menus are seasonal, rustic and locally sourced. Food is cooked to order (so no concerning microwave dings!). There is a good range of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.  

Bottle and Thyme

If drinking’s more your thing, Bottle and Thyme is also a buzzing bar in the evening. They regularly host live acoustic music. There’s a good range of gins, plus gin carafes. Botanical cocktails are served adorned with edible flowers. Totally instagramable! There are generous happy hour periods where two cocktails are just £10. Also worth checking out is their ‘Wine Down Wednesday’ which offers great deals on food, wine and, better still kicks off with free wine samples! As you’d expect there’s a decent wine list. They also have a weekly ‘secret cellar’ option of wines that can’t be bought anywhere else, but are sourced from small vineyards around the world.  

Bottle and Thyme

In addition to being a jolly lovely place to eat, drink and be merry, I’ve always been impressed with Bottle and Thyme’s ethical and environmental credentials.  There are a good range of organic and vegan options, including on the wine list. Takeaway coffees are served in completely plastic-free cups. 

In short, Bottle and Thyme is a cosy, attractive option whatever the time of day or occasion.

REVIEW | The Deep – family fun at one of the UK’s largest aquariums

We had such high expectations of The Deep. So many people have given us glowing reviews, I did wonder if the reality would disappoint. We had intended to visit during our last family holiday where we had stayed in a cottage near Hornsea. Frustratingly, all getting ill put paid to any hope of doing anything… so when The Deep recently invited the Girl About Blog Squad to visit, I practically bit their hand off!

WELLBEING | My 10 Tips For Living With & Coping With Anxiety

Living with and coping with anxiety can feel like, and mean something different to everyone, rearing its head at different moments in life – often feeling like a full force body swerve to the mind that you’re not expecting. It arrives often with no warning, without invite, and certainly isn’t a one that anyone chooses to have hanging around like a purple cloud of smog just slightly out of reach that you can’t quite put your finger on.
