The Old Spot Inn, Wonderful Post-Walk Lunch – Dursley

I’ve become a big fan of the Walking Englishman blog. The way that Mike writes is both entertaining and informative as well as providing some really stellar walks. It is after one of these walks that we discovered the Old Spot Inn. For this post, I shall focus on the restaurant, but details of the walk we undertook can be found here: https://www.walkingenglishman.com/cotswolds12.html The first striking thing about the Old Spot is the free carpark next to it.

The Delft Leut, containing hot milk, strong espresso and milk foam, served in a tall...

Burger Bar – Feel Good Food, Central Amsterdam

Not being on social media has its advantages. For one thing, your parents have no idea where you are at any time. This means you can go abroad at a moment’s notice and eat nice things. One such thing I consumed was a great big burger. Burger Bar was a pseudo saving grace for us. We had arrived from England and were quite hungry.
