Grubs up at The Barony Edinburgh

I was recently lucky enough to be invited along to The Barony to experience their new menu! 
My lovely Lucy and I went along to the historic pub.on Broughton Street in the heart of the city last Thursday and felt instantly welcome by the cosy interiors and lovely staff. 

The new menu at The Barony is serving up a range of fresh new dishes as part of its gastropub menu, proving that pub grub doesn’t just mean old-fashioned comfort food. We wasted no time upon arriving and ordered drinks, gin for me and a vodka sour for Lucy. We'd starved ourselves all day to make sure we made the most of having a 3 course meal - as students this isn't a regular occurrence. 

We spent as little time as possible when deciding what to eat because we were both hank Marvin - to start I went for the Coley goujons, I'd never had Coley before but I love a Goujon so it made sense. They were delicious, and I even shared them with the two gents beside us because they couldn't stop staring at them and saying how nice they smelled. Lucy went for veggie haggis bon bons and I can confirm that she says they were also delicious. 

We soon moved onto the main event which didn't disappoint. I went for the steak pie, roasted seasonal veg and and mash potato - all were absolutely stunning. I love a steak pie and this one rated very very high, and who doesn't love mash?! Lucy had the haddock and chips, which as you can see from the images above looked as good as it tasted. 
Lastly we both went for the sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel ice cream. At this point we were fit to burst but both tried our very best to finish our desserts off but to no avail. Which was devastating cause it was so nice but my stomach had no idea what was going on after being fed properly for the first time in months so I had to let my leftovers go back to the kitchen.

I highly recommend a visit to The Barony for class food, class bev and class service!
Thanks to The Barony for having us!

Fly Open Air 2019

Fly has come and gone for another summer and the weekend, as always, lived up to our expectations. 
The weather was pouring down in traditional Scottish fashion but that stopped nobody from having the most craic possible and wearing the least clothing possible. Firdous and I were lucky enough to be treated to a fab brunch before it all kicked off in the afternoon so we were very well fed and watered. 

This year Fly introduced two new stages to the Hopetoun House venue which were the Fool’s Utopia (which was my fave) and a boiler room that had a strict no phones policy which made the experience all the better.

Bonham hotel relaunch

I'm not feeling too cute today after the fabulous relaunch of one of Edinburgh's best-loved boutique hotles, The Bonham hotel in Edinburgh. Following the refurbishment of all 49 bedrooms last year, the public areas of the hotel have also had a makeover with a new bar and the launch of a brand new restaurant – No. 35 at The Bonham. As well as the lobby and library, the snug – which is perfect for private dining and small events – has been fully refurbished to showcase many of its original features including wood panelling and stained glass windows as well as a stunning hand-painted ceiling.

Guests last night were treated to (too many) gins and glasses of fizz, canap├ęs, personalised luggage tags, manicures and prizes.  

Douglas Campbell, general manager at The Bonham Hotel, said: “This multimillion pound refurbishment has seen our already stunning hotel transformed into a truly sophisticated property combining modern styling with our original Georgian architecture.

“Guests staying in the newly refurbished rooms are already giving us great feedback and we look forward to welcoming even more visitors from near and far to experience a taste of elegance here in the West End of Edinburgh.”

The hotel is absolutely stunning and the suites were too die for, located at 35 Drumsheugh Gardens, just a short walk from Princes Street and George Street I recommend a visit!
