The Horse and Hounds – Great Pub Dining, Broadway

If you happen to be in Broadway, chances are you are en route to, or have just come back from, Broadway Tower. Either way, a wonderful stop you may consider is The Horse and Hounds pub. This was not the world’s greatest restaurant however, it was a good pub grub and had an excellent selection of alcoholic beverages. In addition, it was far enough away from central Broadway to avoid the thrall of eager tourists and enjoy some relative peace. We ate in the back garden on one of the last days of summer, which was quite wonderful as...

The Tannin Level – Staggering Dining, Harrogate

I hesitated for a moment when drafting this post, I considered putting the Tannin Level in the art category of Cedric Suggests. The Tannin Level was always a place I would aspire to dine when living in Harrogate. By virtue of my, then, extreme youth, I did not have the funds to do so. Thankfully the times have changed and in my favour. This was the first stop we made on our way up to the Yorkshire Dales and was well worth the two hour drive. The Tannin Level is a below ground restaurant on Raglan street in the...

Bonehead Chicken – Magnificent Takeout, City Centre

On account of this wretched pandemic, Bonehead Chicken only allows you to order their divine food through Uber Eats.

I have had to pinch photographs from blogs which visited in person in the Before Time. I would like to first draw your attention to the exquisite waffle fries which were a gift from Heaven. Their consistency was delightful, just turgid enough. Their size was just enough for a mouthful. The level of...

Medicine Bakery – What the Doctor Ordered, Birmingham

Medicine Bakery was an extraordinary discovery for Matthew and I. The remarkable thing about this bakery is that it is hidden right in the middle of town, on New Street no less. While we have not yet had time to sample all of the deliciousness on offer, we have tried a fair bit and cannot but recommend this wonderful eatery and art gallery to you. Medicine was born out of a discovery of abandoned space, of new possibilities and an inquisitive quality for creating something vital and diverse. An artisan bakery and kitchen, café and gallery, which is rooted...

Il Napoli – Extraordinary Pizza, Chambray-lès-Tours

Tucked away in a suburb of Tours, Il Napoli proved to be an exceptional culinary experience. This is not someone would expect from a pre-fab building in the middle of an industrious suburb of a lesser known French town. But coming to Il Napoli with all the necessary reservations (pardon the pun) will ensure the greatest experience. You will not predict the feast you are about to ingest. 4 FORMAGGI: Tomate, mozzarella fraîche, chèvre fermier, Gorgonzola, fromage sec Italien rapé. After a necessary gulp of artisanal cider, Mother ordered the Four Cheese, as is her wont. This included mozzarella,...
