Last year I was lucky enough to be invited to visit The George & Dragon in Mountnessing in Essex to sample what they had to offer and I absolutely loved it – so much so, in fact, that I’ve been back a few times since for dinner with friends! So, when I was contacted by their namesake, The George & Dragon in Epping, and asked if I would like to visit them following their recent refurbishment, I jumped at the chance!
On the day itself I went along with Ben and my Dad as it was just a few days before his birthday (bonus daughter points for me) and, whilst in the car on the way there, Dad told me that he had actually been to The George & Dragon before – over 50 years previously when he and my Mum were on a double date with friends! How cool is that?!
I was very kindly provided with this lovely day out free of charge by Hotels.com. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
It’s no secret that I love London. Despite working there Monday to Friday, I will always jump at the chance to spend some of my downtime there. Wandering the streets of the City is one of our favourite things to do; nipping down side roads and alleyways to find out where they lead and what treasures they hide. It’s been a while since we last spent a day exploring the City, so when I was challenged to explore King’s Cross and find out what it had to offer, it seemed like the perfect opportunity!
Back at the end of June, I woke as usual on a Friday morning to get ready for work. I hopped in the shower, fed and watered the animals, made a cup of tea and went back upstairs to wake Ben. However, this morning had a bit of a difference – I was surprising Ben with the news that he had to pack a bag as we were going away for the weekend to celebrate his birthday!
A few weeks ago we popped down to Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood (Essex) to take a look at the amazing work they do and the animals they’ve given a second chance to. Despite it being fairly local to us, it’s not somewhere I had ever visited before and now I’ve been there I can’t help but wonder, what took us so long??

One of my greatest pleasures in life, other than laying on my sofa and morphing into the comfy little potato I am, is going out for something to eat. Generally, I will always favour eating in a pub to a restaurant, I’m definitely more of a low-key, comfy venue lover rather than something a bit more swanky, so when I was asked to pop along to The George and Dragon pub in Mountnessing I jumped at the chance.
