A Treat For The Senses At The Florist Liverpool

A Treat For The Senses At The Florist Liverpool

If we’re going to talk about The Florist, first we need to talk about the smell. The building itself is stunning – it’s the Old Blind School at 24 Hardman Street, carved out of limestone with steps up to the front door framed by wrought iron gates. But the real star of the show? The aroma of fresh…

The Chippie: A First Look At Six By Nico Liverpool

The Chippie: A First Look At Six By Nico Liverpool

Well, Six By Nico was always going to be spectacular, wasn’t it? A restaurant doesn’t set up in five different destinations if it isn’t a complete rip-roaring success. It might be old news to foodies in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and Manchester but now Liverpool has been blessed with its own outpost…

The Best Tapas In Liverpool? We Put El Gato Negro To The Test

When you hear that a restaurant you’ve known and loved is no more, it’s always a bit of a blow to the belly.

I’m a 90s kid through and through and I ain’t afraid to shout about it. My very first concert was the Spice Girls, I had about two hundred hair scrunchies and I was the proud owner of a Tamagotchi, which starved to death when my mum took decided to ‘look after' it. Teaming that with owning every…

Was Heaven A Place On Earth At Eden Manchester?

Was Heaven A Place On Earth At Eden Manchester?

All religious dispositions aside, the Garden of Eden sounds like a pretty epic day out. A paradise full of delight, temptation, nudity and fresh fruit? Sounds like a holiday I once had in Croatia... sign me up. It comes as no surprise that the biblical garden is a recurring motif across the hospitality…

A Taste Of The Northern Spanish Coastline At Pilgrim

A Taste Of The Northern Spanish Coastline At Pilgrim

I haven’t been to Spain since I was a young whipper-snapper with little interest in the culture other than its bottled chocolate milk and aqua parks. Similarly, my experience of its gastronomic landscape doesn’t really extend far beyond Nutella pancakes and queso omelettes from the hotel breakfast…
