Restaurant Review - The Tilbury

The Tilbury is nestled in the picturesque village of Datchworth in Hertfordshire. Surrounded by countryside and accompanied by plentiful parking, first impressions were good. Owned by brothers James and Tom Bainbridge, The Tilbury boasts classic British food with innovative twists and composed of promised fresh, high quality ingredients. My fiance, future parents in law and I decided to visit Saturday evening to indulge in the A La Carte menu, and were certainly not disappointed. The Tilbury has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes, in the AA Pub Guide and Michelin Guide in 2015, 2016 and 2017 so we knew the food would be particularly special.

2017 Reflection

Happy New Year to you all! I hope your festive break was as relaxed as mine, and you feel refreshed and motivated to boss 2018. Like many people, the New Year is a time to look back, assess and strive to succeed. I always think it is a good idea, to reflect on all the memorable exciting events of the previous year. Sometimes I battle with myself that I haven't done enough or should do more but when I truly reflect on 2017, I am happy with my accomplishments. Here is a list of what made my 2017.

Christmas at Kew

This week feeling VERY festive and needing a study break I ventured into London, to visit Christmas at Kew. Kew Gardens have transformed their beautiful grounds, into a fairy tale Christmas kaleidoscope. With over one million lights, props, giant flower pots and a North Pole Village the whole evening was fantastic. As you walk around, there are various pit stops with toasted marshmallows,  mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, churros and other delicious Christmas delights. All the light displays were different from one another assisted with complemented musical themes, and the creativity behind them was exception. As you can see this first photo, the Christmas tree is composed of sleighs!
