I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the biggest fan of afternoon tea. My lust for savoury food is far stronger than my sweet tooth, and I am really not all that bothered about cake – especially not the dense, spongy kind found on so many afternoon tea stands across the country. Sorry Mary Berry!

So there I was, thinking that afternoon tea was one of life’s little luxuries that I just wasn’t that into, but then everything changed.

I tried the festive afternoon tea from The Angel Hotel & Restaurant in Abergavenny.  View Post

I was invited to stay at The Angel Hotel in Abergavenny and therefore all food and drink was complimentary. However, I was not obliged to write a positive review.

If you’re looking for a great budget hotel in central London, I’ve found a real gem for you. It’s cheap, quirky, and well-located – but it’s the hotel’s green credentials which really set this forward-thinking business apart. View Post

There’s a new chef at the helm at the 5* St Davids Hotel restaurant, Tempus At Tides and he’s had his say on the new menu, too. On a drizzly Tuesday evening in June, I went to try out his cooking and see what this iconic waterfront hotel now has to offer the foodies of Cardiff.

I was invited to Tempus At Tides as a guest and as a result, my meal was complimentary. This has not affected my opinion and I was not obliged to write a positive review.
