The Plough in Harborne- Restaurant Review

Follow my blog with bloglovin


Apologies for the inconsistency with when I post, but here is a small restaurant review on a pub type venue, ideal for the casual brunch, or the more sophisticated evening meal; a venue also accomodating for the children!

My friend and I attended for a spontaneous lunchtime meal and were lucky enough to catch their £9 meal deal.

For just £9 we were served a drink and this (above) elephant sized calzone! Delicious! Stuffed with succulent caramelised onions (which you should know by now, are my favourite!), salted olives and tender chicken under the crisp dough covering, my personalised calzone definitely filled me up. A slightly messy meal to consume .i.e. not first date material perhaps, but then again, who cares when it tastes so good.

Overall, a venue where you truly get your moneys worth, with a buzzing ambiance to top it off: a Harborne social hub, where everyone seems to bump into someone they know.

Revolución de Cuba, Liverpool (Restaurant Review)

Follow my blog with bloglovin

With Liverpool hosting this years Clothes Show, a few friends and I spent a weekend visiting tourist locations, such as the Beatles Museum, and the Tate Museum, all within walking distance from this quirky restaurant, situated in one of the hearts of Liverpool, (the Albert Docks) Revolución de Cuba.

With live music playing, and a buzzing, bubbly, summer ambiance, we were naturally drawn to this place, and, whats more, when seated, we listened to a fautless music playlist, ranging from Wham, to the Beatles, from Michael Jackson, to Prince and even a little bit of Drake. We danced whilst the sun faded!

The photo above is just a snapshot of the food this restaurant has to offer; the tapas varies from creamy, nourishing, ham and cheese croquettes, to the more intriguing, subtly mohito flavoured, battered prawns.

The meals were very filling, especially my burrito, packed with the most tender pork. However, there was room for dessert, or course! A creamy, baked cheesecake for me, please! (Below)


And we can’t forget drinks. Our evening was replenished with many refreshing mocktails (a minty, raspberry and apple mohito anyone?!), some fruity daiquiris (similar to those childhood slush puppies, used to dye the tongue an unnatural blue, but without the colouring effect!) and a few subtly flavoured punch bowls, all presented in unique displays of tin cups, bronze bowls and interestingly shaped glasses; perfect to instagram! 

I can’t recommend this restaurant anymore: a pleasurable experience to top off a trendy Liverpool visit!
