My parents and my best friends parents, visit here a lot and all I hear is really good comments so I said lets all visit one day.

I just came back from Paris with my girlfriend, and my parents picked us up at the airport and took us here for something to eat.

On arrival wow this is a cute place, it looks like something from a seaside postcard. Even inside was very bright, and really nice! I loved how this place looked.

The Food…

I had heard very positive feedback from my parents and my best friends parents, so now it was time to try for myself…

Main Course

Ranch Burger £12.99
Crispy smoked bacon with melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

On arrival I was thinking this is BIG, and smelled really good.

This was very good, a really nice and tasty burger.

The chips my favourite nice and thin, and the BBQ sauce worked well with both burger and chips.

Beer52 Craft Beer Subscription: Review

Website: www.Beer52.com

I have always enjoyed drinking a beer when I am out, though normally it would be a cocktail or rum.

Around mid last year, I started doing a Craft Beer tour in my home city Glasgow, where I take a group of people around 3 breweries and they get to try some craft beer.

Craft Beer? hmm I had heard of this term but I never really looked into it much or tried many or any craft beers. Due to me being the guide I started to look into it more, and wow it’s a massive area and growing every single day.

At each of these stops, I tried the breweries own Craft Beer, and more recently one off the menu just at random to see what other ones were like.

I use an app when I am out doing these tours, and also when I go out and have a craft beer called UnTapped. Its basically like Facebook but for beer checking in. It’s a great app to use, firstly it’s free and also if you tried a beer ages ago at a place and couldn’t remember what it was just open the app and have a look…plus many more features so take a look.

While using this app I got an offer for Beer52, they are a subscription service for Craft Beers. With a promo code, I got my first box for £6.95, that was 12 beers, snack and a magazine…I couldn’t say no to this and thought let’s try it. (NOTE you are auto-enrolled into a subscription and after that first payment it’s around £25 a month unless you change the option or cancel)

My first box arrived and I had many beers to try…

Sorry guys no photos of this one, but don’t worry I continued my subscription and got a second box.

To drink all the beers from my first box, it took me a while as I am now driving more so I can’t drink and drive…

Next Months Delivery…the beers magazine and snack arrived. I won’t go into detail about all the beers, but these ones were my favourites.

The above pic of the three craft beers were my top 3 from this months box, I have found I like a dark beer that has coffee or chocolate notes to it. This is strange as my normal pub beer is a light beer, so my taste is expanding and enjoying more.

The far left beer Ninkasi Blanche WOW this was a REALLY REALLY good beer!!!!! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for this one in the shops.

Overall

This is a good service and highly recommended, you can even have it every 2 months etc they will cater the subscription to your needs. The added magazine is a really great feature, as its a good read and you will learn more about beers etc.

What I have learned about my taste is, I like a dark sweet craft beer rather than a sour one but its good to try many styles.

Cheers

This for me is a hard review, to be honest, I have never had there on my list to visit as I am not a big meat person or steak person….but tonight I visited to see what it was like.

IMG_0999.jpg

Inside it was a lot bigger than it looked, and very open which I liked so I knew I wouldn’t be too close to the table next to me.

Tonight one of us had an ItIsOn, and I just went off the menu. I opted for the Rodizio Especial £18.95 (as was after 5pm)IMG_0997.jpg

So basically the idea is, from start to finish a waiter comes round the table and gives you a slice of something…..that something depends on what menu you opt to choose so it could be steak, lamb, chicken etc…

I didn’t take any photos as the presentation is not something you look for here, as its just slices of meat etc on your plate.

What meats etc I did try were nice, but I left with the same thought as I went in with…its a good restaurant for someone who is a big meat eater but for me….this style is not for me.

Don’t let my review put you off going, as I said this is my opinion and you could go and love it…so do please give them a shot and see if its something you like.
