Greens restaurant

Greens is a vegetarian restaurant in Manchester, opened in 1990 by Chef Simon Rimmer. The Chef is not vegetarian, I found that a little strange, but in a good way. I can only rejoice for his decision to open it like this. The cuisine is modern British and that’s always a winner in my book.
I’m always happy to go to vegetarian restaurants, as I’ve been veggie for 7+ years and having the opportunity to order everything that is in the menu sounds amazing.

Just a sneak peak of the dishes to come 🙂

We went this Tuesday, just showed up, hoping to get a table. We arrived at 6.30 and were welcomed by friendly staff. We were lucky, in half an hour the place was very very busy, nearly full. Next time we have to book online, I’m sure that in the weekend or on Fridays it must be impossible to get a table without a reservation.

Lyndricks House B&B, Ascot, review

I don’t usually write reviews, but it’s pretty hard to find reviews outside tripadvisor on places that are not that well known. So, I can only hope that my review will give more info to an undecided tourist. I’ve stayed at Lyndricks B&B in Ascot for 4 nights a couple of weeks ago.

01 Lyndricks House B&B Ascot review
The room that I received was big and light. It was much bigger than expected, with a double bed, as I was alone. The bedroom and the en-suite were sparkling clean. Also, I was surprised that the room was cleaned every day.

In the room there were tea/coffee making facilities and a small fridge, very handy. Also, there was free Wi fi. It was slow, but I was expecting that, so didn’t bother me much. For a tourist it’s hardy an issue anyway.

Shisha

Yesterday we went to VOOO and we had a lovely Shiha, mix flavour, it was very nice. Hubby had the camera with him, so he took a few pictures.

In Romania I use to have shisha and coffee with hell, but now I got used to shisha and mint tea. I must admit it’s better this way, the flavor of the tea compliments the shisha.

Olive Grove

Yesterday we went in Heswall and I loved the place from the start. It’s very clean and the landscape is very beautiful. Unfortunately I couldn’t take pictures because there aren’t parking lots near the most beautiful places.

After hubby finished a meeting, we had a great time at the Olive Grove.

The weather was very nice, so we decided to stay outside. I just love the British weather (even if right now is raining).

For starters I had garlic mushrooms, like usual in a Greek restaurant. I was very happy with them, creamy and nice. Hubby had fish, he enjoyed it as well. For mains, I decided to have Briami (or Briam in other restaurants) and hubby ordered his usual lamb kebab. The food was very good.
