Wildwood York Dinner Review: April 2019
Wonderful Wildwood York city centre is a beautiful bespoke and bright restaurant, with a fabulous friendly team who provide relaxed vibes and a place to feel at home.
The quality food menu is good value for money too, with a combination of the classics with contemporary additions including pizza, pasta, grills and much more scrummy offerings.
Super starters included the Marinated olives, Bruschetta Caprese with smashed avocado, sun kissed tomato, torn mozzarella & basil with lashings of balsamic glaze and the fabulous Four cheese arancini goat’s with Red Leicester, mozzarella, cheddar served in fresh tomato sauce. All washed down with a Meantime Pale Ale and an awesome Virgin Mojito cocktail made with fresh mint, lime, sugar syrup and soda.
LOCKEDIN Games York Review: April 2019
LOCKEDIN Games York, located opposite the Yorkshire Museum, is an exciting escape experience where you and your squad can test their mind and motivation to see if you have all got what it takes to escape within 60 minutes.
Both Rages to Riches and Caught in the Act, custom built escape rooms, cleverly incorporate York as a theme, while still retaining the quality and authenticity of the rooms.
Puzzles made sense and structured well, challenged your mind, but without frustration. The games masters are also super duper lovely too.
Caught in the Act Escape Room
It’s your time to get your razzle dazzle on, be the star of the show and with jazz hands at the ready you open the dressing room door to make your grand stage entrance, but only to find the door has been locked.
Sabotage by your under study or perhaps a simple door jam hmm? Either way all that matters is you must get out within 60 minutes, as the Show must go on with or without you and you don’t want your acting career to be over before it’s begun.

Grand Opera House York Club Tropicana Review: April 2019
The gorgeous Grand Opera House prepared their best 80’s vibes, as they hosted the brilliant brand new 80s inspired Musical, from the producers of the hit UK tour of Hairspray, Club Tropicana.
The all-star cast features the likes of Joe McElderry (X Factor winner and star of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Emily Tierney (Wicked, The Wizard of Oz), Kate Robbins (Spitting Image, Dinnerladies), Neil McDermott (EastEnders, The Sound of Music); and former Sugababe star Amelle Berrabah.
Leave your worries behind you, board the plane, feel that heat and sizzle of the summer sunshine and top up your tan. Let your hair down, as the cast take you on a trip back to the 80’s, as you check into the Club Tropicana where the drinks are free and good times are plentiful.
Beautiful bride and groom get cold feet, so jet of for some fun in the sun with friends only to have checked into the same hotel. With love potentially still in the air, hotel inspectors trying to close the resort and staff holding up the fort, this hilarious slapstick cheesy production is sure to get your smile on.

Warmly welcomed by chirpy and cheery Debbie, immediately we knew our stay would be fabulous.
Our rather regal and relaxed room elegantly presented in muted shades looked amazing and had a super cosy snug bed giving us a brilliant night’s sleep.
The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa: A Destination, Not just a Hotel-Review: April 2019
The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa, located on the edge of the beautiful West Pennine moors, whose origins date back to farm buildings from the 17th century, is now a four-star hotel, Spa & experience.
In 1964 owner Carlton Walker, was offered “the last drop” of a bottle of wine, to mark the completion and celebrations of the restaurant, hence the hotels current name.
The Last drop Village Hotel & Spa, is set within beautiful grounds, and you may even spot a bit of wildlife too, but this is more than just a hotel it’s a destination.
The executive package is well worth the upgrade, as this includes perks such as welcome drinks, Lilly O’Brien’s chocolates, bottled water, extra toiletries, robes & slippers all to make your stay extra special.
Soho London Eats & Drinks – Review: April 2019
Soho, an historic and eclectic area of London, provides visitors with a diverse and vibrant array of excellent eating and drinking dens.
In no particular order, here are my top 5 Soho Eat & drink hotties…
Honest Burgers Soho
Located just off Dean Street, Honest Burgers Soho is a home away from home type of place. A casual dining style, offering a relaxed and informal approach, ideal for pre or post theatre dining or a catch up with friends and family. Friendly and fabulous with a wonderful warm welcome from Thomas and the team.
Both the food and drinks are top notch, offering something for everyone, they do what they say ‘Honest’ food. Vegans and meat-eaters alike are covered, with the mouth-watering Plant Burger & the meaty Honest Burger served with a handful of rosemary chips and added sides of Onion Rings & purple Coleslaw thrown in for good measure.
Wash down this scrummy food with alcohol or non-alcoholic refreshments, you decide as they do both, including the Lucky Saint Low Alcohol & fullers frontier. Honest, a perfect spot to get fed ready for theatre fun and frolics.
