Dry January with Fentimans | Review*


I had been eyeing up this beautiful copper penguin cocktail shaker in Sainsburrys for what felt like forever! I had seen it in store last Christmas and loved it and when they brought it back in 2017 it was the top of my Christmas wishlist! Lucky for me it was wrapped and under the tree waiting to be opened on Christmas day! Since then I have used it once to make a super strong gin cocktail, I had all great plans for our News Years Eve celebrations to make lots of delicious drinks but in reality we just played beer pong and drank whatever was easiest to make. After a fairly heavy week of drinking we decided that a 'dry January' is in order. We received quiet a lot of Gin for christmas (as everyone knows that we love it) but we have packed it away and vowed to not have any drinks at least for the first few weeks of January anyway!

Reviewing my 2017 Goals

Last year I wrote a post about my 2017 goals so I thought that I should review them and see how I got on! I couldn't actually remember what I wrote so looking back was actually rather interesting.

The Kingswood Beefeater, Hull Review | Food*

The Beef eater pub, kingswood Hull

A few weeks ago I was invited along to the newly refurbished Beefeater pub on Kingswood in North Hull. We head over to the Kingswood retail park now and again as they have a huge Next, T K Maxx, Matalan, to name a few as well as lots of nice restaurants, a cinema and a bowling alley. We have not, however, tried out the new Beefeater pub so when I was invited I could not say no! We thought we would head over on a Saturday lunchtime, we decided to call and book in advance and we are glad we did as it was super busy.

We were greeted at the door and shown to our table. I was surprised at how big it was inside, there were lots of tables to accommodate big families and well as couples. There was also a spacious bar area to have drinks.  

We decided to go all out and have three courses.I choose garlic prawn pan costing £6.49 and Darren had the Duck Pâté costing £5.69. They where both really nice, they were a good size for a starter and the prices where very reasonable too.

For our main course I originally wanted the Lobster Double Stack Burger however it had already sold out, proving it is a very popular dish! Instead I choose the New Buttermilk Chicken & Blue Cheese Burger costing £13.49, 'Buttermilk chicken goujons coated in rosemary breadcrumbs, topped with creamy Stilton and spicy piri piri mayonnaise, Served in a toasted brioche bun' sounds incredible doesn't it! I had this with sweet potato fries and it did not disappoint, it was such a big portion too!

Darren had the Sticky Bourbon BBQ Ribs with regular fries costing £15.29. I had a little taste of them and they where do delicious! Again it was a huge portion and was defiantly value for money.

Finally, we had to try out the deserts too. Although they don't look so pretty, they tasted fab and was agreat sweet treat to end our meal with (even though I couldn't even finish mine!) Darren had the Warm Chocolate Brownie 'Warming and delicious, this chocolate brownie is served with vanilla ice cream and our rich chocolate sauce' costing £4.99 and I had the Salted Toffee Apple Crumble 'Sweet, tangy apples and sticky salted toffee sauce, topped with golden shortcake crumble and served with custard' also costing £4.99! Again, great portions and great prices.

Our meal with two re-fillable soft drinks came in at just over £50 which I consider to be great value taking in to consideration how big the portions are. I would 100% head back there again, but I wouldn't probably go for all three courses. The main was my favourite and I am still tempted by the Lobster burger! I you wish to try it out for yourself I would recommend booking in advance if you wanted to go on a weekend as it seems to get very busy.
