Oak Tree Inn (Balmaha, Loch Lomond) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I love going a wee drive every now and then, long or closer to home.

Today I decided to take a random drive to Balmaha and see what it was like there, and I spotted The Oak Tree Inn on arrival so I popped in for some lunch.

The Food

I fancied trying a burger as I have not had one in a long time, and this one sounded good.

Bacon Bad Boy Beef Burger £13.75
Cheese, smoked streaky bacon & BBQ sauce

On arrival visually this looked really good, and so did the chips.

I started with the chips and WOW, perfectly pre salted and tasted REALLY good!

Now for the burger…I took a big bite…

YUMM!!! this was very tasty! The flavour of the burger meat was really nice, and it was perfectly cooked and juicy.

The whole bite was great flavours and IU really enjoyed every bite.

Overall :

I am glad I opted for the burger today, as I said the chips were perfectly salted and very very moreish, and the burger was very tasty.

I will try another burger the next time I visit here.

Tea Palace (York, England) 2021: Review

The Visit

I decded to take a wee drive today from Glasgow to York, just for the day with my mum to see York for the second time.

After a nice wee drive, I needed to grab something to eat and drink to fuel me up and I thought lets try here.

The Food

Bacon Roll £5.95
Served with a hot beverage of your choice

I have not had a bacon roll for a long time, so I had to get one today as it sounded too good to pass.

On arrival this looked very nice, and smelled so good.

This was really nice, the bacon had a really nice flavour and it was a good thickness and probably one of the nicest slices I have had in a long time.

I could have easily had another one, but I thought I would save myself for dinner.

Chaii Tea

I have recently got back into having chaii tea, so I thought lets try it here and see what its like since it is a tea place.

On arrival I liked the presentation, and the timers so I could have it as light or dark as I wanted.

Taste wise it was just ok, not the lovely flavour I was used to when I get chaii tea elsewhere…shame.

I would easily come back here just for the bacon roll 🙂

Fudge Kitchen (York, England) 2021 : Review

Visit : 
07-11-2021

The Visit

Today I took a drive from Glasgow to York, for a wee visit as its been a while since I last visited.

I had heard many good things about the Fudge Kitchen, so I added to my list to visit if I passed it…..which I did 🙂

About

Our flagship store! York store is sweet, warm & full of fun. Come and see our famous fudge making demonstration – packed full of singing, jokes & scrumptious fudge!

The Goodies

I had no idea what flavours I wanted to try, so I just decided to chose on arrival.

All of them looked really good.

Cost wise its 4 bars for £17 or 1 slab for £5

I got myself a box of 4 slabs.

Firstly I really liked the presentation, it looked just as good as the fudge.

I couldn’t wait to get home, and try all the flavours I got.

The Fudge

This is a very easy and simplistic review as what I am about to say sums up every slice.

At first I thought its a little costly per slice, but now I can understand why as they are a good thick slice and so so good!!!

Each slice I got was yummy, gooie, packed with flavour and extremely moreish!

Overall :

If you live in or near York, or plan on visiting York at some point you have to add here to your places to stop and get some slices.

I promise you will love it!
