Brunch & Lunch

RECOMMENDATION | Brunch at The Kitchen at Manor House Lindley in Huddersfield

Tucked away behind a pretty average high street in Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, concealed by a high wall of foliage is a beautiful Georgian Manor House – The Manor House at Lindley. Iron gates lead into a sweeping driveway and a fully functioning fountain takes centre stage slap bang in the middle of it, surrounded by perfectly pruned topiary. It all feels rather grand and a bit too indulgent for a Thursday brunch date with Girl About Yorkshire – Emma. The type of venue that surely comes with a hefty bill at the end of it all…How wrong was I?

RECOMMENDATION | Darkhorse Stratford, East Village – East London

Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.

RECOMMENDATION: The Hyndland Fox – one of my favourite places for lunch in Glasgow’s West End

This one’s been on the list for me for a while as every time I drive past, I’d longingly look on at brunchers and lunchers sitting outside in the little curb-side suntrap in the heart of Glasgow’s West End. Hyndland is a plush area with a very local feel. Just a stone’s throw from the real hustle and bustle of the West End, this is local 'West End living' area.

REVIEW | Ladies ‘wot’ Lunch at Elsworth Kitchen. A new Bistro in Skipton – Yorkshire

Emma (AKA Girl About West Yorkshire) and I were invited to this fabulous little bistro that is Elsworth Kitchen located just off Skipton High Street, right next to the canal and quite new to the Skipton dining scene. We were given the warmest of welcomes by co-owner Rebecca who radiated so much enthusiasm for Elsworth Kitchen - a venture founded by this lovely lady and her hubby Bruce. It's less than a year old and was opened by the delightful duo following Bruce's career as Head Chef at The Angel at Hetton for 20 years and Rebecca's role as Bistro Manager at The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey.

REVIEW | Comptoir Libanais – Great Lebanese Grub in Leeds

My other half and I were kindly invited to try to new Comptoir Libanais new cookbook menu ‘Feasts from the Middle East’, which shares recipes from Tony’s childhood, handed down to him by his mother, the source of all his inspiration. 30% of the menu is now vegan and over 55% of the menu is vegetarian and we found there to be a huge choice for meat-eaters, veggies and vegans alike.
