Dry Jan is over and here’s a great way to celebrate!

If like me you have been involved in Dry January, you may well be looking forward to this weekend.*   Well done you did it – enjoy a drink if the fancy takes you.

Foodie gift inspiration from Tonbridge and around

This might be the quickest blog I’ve ever written as I’ve just realised it’s Small Business Saturday!

Some news, some just downright hearsay!

I am always working hard to bring you the breaking gastronomic news of Tonbridge and the local area.  And let’s focus on the word news – I usually like to check my facts and tell you the definitive ‘word on the street’ about new places popping up but in this post, I have to admit that some of it is rumour.  Quite well-founded rumour but as yet I haven’t been able to obtain the facts that I so need!  So here goes, in no particular order …..
