Last week I visited Nocturnal Animal on Bennetts Hill – right in the city centre – for a spot of fine dining. They have two options for the tasting menu – six courses for £45 or eight courses for £65. The interior is playful with […]

Part two of my birthday celebrations saw me celebrating a whole lot more with work colleagues, friends and family. On my actual birthday (that random Tuesday) my mum came down to Birmingham on the train with my dog. We went for lunch at 1000 Trades […]
