There’s a New Menu at Turtle Bay

TURTLE BAY LAUNCH NEW MENU AND IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CARIBBEAN SOCIAL.

We love Turtle Bay, it’s a great place to eat as a family, amazing food, great atmosphere and fun staff. So we were eager to try out the new menu. We started our Summer Hare hunting and enjoying a meal at the Bay and we finished it the same way, perfect!  Continue reading There’s a New Menu at Turtle Bay

Last Pub Standing Norwich

Last week it was my Father in Law’s birthday and he and he fancied a nice meal out in Norwich with a few beers afterwards with his son. So that’s what happened. We booked into the Premier Inn and headed to the Last Pub Standing for an amazing meal. Last Pub Standing Continue reading Last Pub Standing Norwich

VW Whitenoise Festival

Last weekend L and I visited the beautiful Euston Park for the family friendly VW Whitenoise Festival .  VW Whitenoise

On the Sunday morning gates opened at 9am, though L and I didn’t arrive until around the 10.30ish mark. Saturday had been amazing on the weather front, Sunday not so much, but we weren’t planning on letting that be a problem. VW Whitenoise Continue reading VW Whitenoise Festival

East Anglia Transport Museum

The East Anglia Transport Museum is another new find for us this year. Unlike some of the other places we have visited for the first time, this one we hadn’t even heard of! This is really sad as I genuinely feel like I have deprived L of a few years worth of fun. Simply put, we love it and if you are looking for a fun day out over the summer holidays I couldn’t recommend this more.East Anglia Transport Museum

I have lived in or around Wymondham for over 20 years, yet have never visited the Wymondham Heritage Museum in the centre of town. I am pleased to say I have now remedied that!

Cocktail Tables at Turtle Bay Norwich

One of my favourite places to eat and drink in Norwich, Turtle Bay, has now launched cocktail tables. You can book a table to enjoy their amazing drinks with full table service. Way better than battling your way to the bar and having to try to find somewhere to sit.

Daiquiri Time

Get yourself seated in a cosy corner of the restaurant and enjoy the amazing cocktails or maybe even try a rum sharing board. Eat food, don’t eat food. Maybe just dessert, or two desserts. It’s up to you.  Continue reading Cocktail Tables at Turtle Bay Norwich

Our Day at The Spring Fling 2018

A few weeks ago I was wasting time on Facebook, as you do, when I saw an advert for The Spring Fling. It immediately appealed to me as it involved tractors, the emergency services and animals, all of L’s favourite things. When I looked into it a bit further I saw the tickets were only £9.50 each and included lunch. I was sold.

Banham Zoo

For four years now we have had annual passes to Banham Zoo and though I’ve mentioned it several times, not once have I actually written about it! Well it’s time I fixed that.

City of Norwich Aviation Museum

One of our favourite day trips is The City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

It is a particular favourite of L and his Daddy, to the point they got themselves an annual pass (£10 per adult or £20 for a family pass). On occasion, however, it is permitted for me to go with them!Norwich Aviation Museum

Adventure The Broads in Norfolk with New Cottage Company

Fed up with the snow? Thinking of booking a holiday? As a Norfolk girl I may be biased but I cannot recommend the Norfolk Broads enough. They are beautiful, so peaceful and relaxing. They are also well situated with a great deal to do in and around them. I’ve spent many happy holiday at the Norfolk Broads.
