RECOMMENDATION | The Stratford Brasserie, Stratford – East London

Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.

REVIEW | DOMO Restaurant, Sheffield – A Superb Sardinian Tapas Banquet Fit For A Princess

There is nothing I love more than seeing someone follow their passion, take the leap and achieve success. This is what Sarah and Raffa have achieved at Domo. Opening a restaurant in a competitive part of town with a baby on the way, Domo offers traditional Sardinian cuisine in a modern environment. Not only is Domo unique with its offering, but it’s also brilliant and absolutely worth visiting.

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 | Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza – Manchester

I headed into Manchester with my hubby Kov and our toddler Archie to meet my sis-in-law for lunch. After realising we needed pizza we did a little research on the best pizzeria in town and chose the highly recommended Rudy’s Neopolitan Pizzeria. The original Rudy’s is based in Ancoats, but we needed to stay in the city centre so stuck with the Peter Street branch.

RECOMMENDATION | Odyssey Greek Restaurant

What I like best about Odyssey Greek restaurant is that it genuinely feels like you’re holiday! No mean feat considering the restaurant is actually located in Chesterfield town centre. My husband and I are huge fans of Greece. Between us we’ve ticked off most of the Greek islands and have shared many happy memories there so it’s wonderful to have somewhere that feels like being on holiday on our doorstep. A perfect venue for date night!
