Wildwood Restaurant Skipton – Review

Wildwood Restaurant Skipton – Review: August 2019

Wonderfully warm and welcoming Wildwood Skipton really had good vibes about the place.

The restaurant boasts airy, contemporary décor which gives a chic cool vibe to the place.

Gabriella and her team; Aaron, Freya, Katie, along with our delightful server David have created that relaxed home away from home feel.

Super scrummy starters began with their brilliant baked brie and one of my ultimate fav Wildwood dishes bruschetta Caprese.  Along with some marinated olives, this makes for the perfect starter.

Marvellous mouth-watering mains included the tasty tagliatelle alla norma, I can not walk in a Wildwood without ordering this dish! Also, their signature Smokey bbq ribs which my plus one scoffed in full and washed down with a Day Time!

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.

Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa A Destination Review 4The 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.

Turtle Bay Blackburn New Menu Review

Turtle Bay Blackburn New Menu Review: May 2017

Boom! Back again at Blackburn’s Turtle Bay for some cool Caribbean chilled vibes. News of the new menu has spread fast and this exciting foodie news really had my taste buds tingling. Shown to our seating, we were greeted by the lovely Jacob, one of the brands senior management figures, who spent some time speaking with us.  However, Jacob soon had to head off, as he clearly adopts a hands-on management style, as throughout the evening he got stuck in with the team, helping them with everything from serving meals, organising the pass and cleaning cutlery – Amazing!

Turtle Bay Blackburn Review: April 2017

Trinidad to Tobago, Bahamas to Blackburn’s Turtle Bay where you can sample your very own heat of the Caribbean without having to pack your suitcase and minus the airfare. Welcomed by our server, aka Jamaica’s Jamming Jordan, I knew this visit was going to be hot! Décor colourful, inviting with beach wood style tables and even shack style toilets. Jamming reggae music playing the likes of the classic Bob Marley. The mix of décor, music, happy vibes and atmosphere got me in the summer mood, so the shades went on and it was time to taste some creative cocktails – Caribbean style.
