Yak Yeti Yak, Bath

When you’ve lived somewhere for several years, and have fallen in love with the city and the experiences you had there, it is very hard to let go. This is why I still spend an awful lot of time thinking about York, reminiscing with other people about York, and wondering when I can next go and visit York. Whilst I was staying with James over New Year, we started discussing the range of great restaurants in York, including The Yak and Yeti which had been one of our favourites. I haven’t seen a Nepalese restaurant since. However, when I was researching somewhere to eat in Bath after our trip to the Thermae Bath Spa, I stumbled across Yak Yeti Yak and there was suddenly no question about where we would be going.

Brew Haus, Bradford

Every so often when exploring a new place you will walk into somewhere and, despite having never been there before, will feel completely at home. This happened to me and James when we went for a long weekend in Bradford. On the first night we popped into Brew Haus for a drink thinking that it looked quiet and quite nicely decorated, and we ended up returning the next night. We could have quite easily stopped by again on our final night but decided we ought to try somewhere else whilst we were there.

A weekend in Liverpool

I was delighted when my little brother got into Liverpool University as it was an excellent excuse to visit the city and get to know it better (I was pleased for his sake too!). I had already decided I liked Liverpool after a trip last summer, and had several things on my list that I wanted to visit this time. Keen to be accommodating, I asked him where he would like to see or where he would like to go to eat… and then wished I hadn’t bothered. Whilst I did get caught up in the “uni bubble”, I was still keen to explore and get to know the city I was living in, whereas Andrew is quite happy in his bubble. It felt more like I was the one showing him around… but we did have an excellent time!

A Roman Banquet

It’s not every evening that you go to a fundraising roman banquet in full roman costume, but that’s exactly what I ended up doing one chilly evening in October!

Top Ten Bars in York

With the York Food and Drink Festival now in full swing, and having already shared my top ten places for food in York, I thought it was now time to share my top places to go for a drink. York has an incredible number of bars and pubs and in recent years it has become very popular with hen and stag parties for that reason. Consequently, on weekends and race days you will have to expect places to be busy and loud. However, due to the range of establishments you are likely to find somewhere a little quieter and it means there is plenty of choice depending on what you like to drink!
