Food Festival: British Food Festival

Travelling in and out of Windsor I see a lot of advertisements for events happening in the area. I spotted the British Food Festival been advertised.

Moving around we were… Read More

Happy 4th July!

Today is 4th July, Independence Day in America, it is the day where you celebrate the Independence of America which happened on this date in 1776. I’m lucky enough to have celebrated this day in America. Talking and listening to American’s you realise what this day means to them.

It’s not just the patriotism it’s the food and drink… Read More

Restaurant Review: Cattle Grid, Windsor

Today was my first day in my new job. It’s based in the historic town of Windsor. Short few steps away from Windsor Castle where the Queen and Prince Philip stay at. The town is busy and filled with tourists. I’ve been to Windsor a few times, with family wandering around the centre. Stayed there and witnessed my Dad and his wife Michelle marry. Entering my new job I was told I was heading out to lunch. One of the girls had booked a restaurant called Cattle Grid Steak House. Walking inside… Read More
