Chocolate Lovers Afternoon Tea at Whittlebury Park Hotel & Spa

*We were provided with this experience for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

Last weekend we had a really lovely break away as a family at the Whittlebury Park Hotel and Spa Resort in the Northamptonshire countryside.

It couldn’t have been a nicer break away and it all started off with afternoon tea served in the hotel Bentleys lounge. We were treated to a preview of the Chocolate Lovers Afternoon Tea which the hotel offer at various times through the year – and it’s available again throughout February.

Sunday Lunch at The Red Lion – Odiham, Hampshire

Disclosure: We were invited for this meal for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

Last weekend we were invited to The Red Lion in Odiham, Hampshire for Sunday lunch. As a family we don’t often go out for pub lunches on a Sunday – mainly because we are never sure how family friendly new places will be but this is something you don’t have to worry about with The Red Lion – it was so family focused from start to finish.

Celebrating Mothers Day at Côte Brasserie, Farnham

At the weekend we were invited to Côte Brasserie in Farnham for a early Mothers Day treat. We’ve never been to a Côte Brasserie before and were looking forward to trying something new, especially as Farnham is beautiful – with period properties, little boutiques and so much character. Côte Brasserie fits in perfectly!

Disclosure: We were invited for this meal for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

On Monday night Dave and I were invited to the 1907 restaurant, bar and grill at Brooklands Hotel. It was the first time we had been out for a meal, just the two of us, since the summer and we were really looking forward to it – even more so as I’d sampled the 1907 menu when I went for a spa day at the hotel a couple of weeks ago.

The Cricketers, Bagshot Beefeater Review

Disclosure: We were invited for this meal for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

We love going out for dinner as a family and Beefeater is one of the places that we have found is really family friendly – whatever time of day we visit. We went to The Cricketers in Bagshot last weekend to try out their menu ahead of Valentines Day and immediately noticed how it has been refurbished since we last visited – it has such a welcoming and homely feel to it as well as having lovely low lighting, creating the perfect ambience for both a family meal or a Valentines meal for a couple.
