I was invited to try the menu at The George and Dragon free of charge in exchange of a review. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.

 

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?!

Visiting Hopefield Animal Sanctuary (Brentwood, Essex)

Visiting Hopefield Animal Sanctuary (Brentwood, Essex)

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.

It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.

Bourgee London Southend Airport {AD-REVIEW}

Bourgee London Southend Airport  <font size="3">{AD-REVIEW}</font>

We were invited to try the Bourgee Southend Airport menu in exchange for a review. 

 

Way back in 2014, Bourgee opened the doors to its very first restaurant, situated on Southend seafront, and I went along to see what they had to offer.

 

At the time I was majorly impressed, with the service being faultless, the décor being beautiful and the food being oh-so-good. Since then they’ve opened another branch in Chelmsford and there was talks of them opening one in Billericay, but this never came to fruition. However, little did I know until I was visiting Amsterdam a few weeks ago, they have a little Bourgee in London Southend Airport!
