On Tour – Stratford Upon Avon

Thespians. 26 Sheep Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6EF, England. Excellent service and beautiful food Stratford Upon Avon has almost become a second home for us outside of the South West of the country, we were last here in February but never got around to visiting Thespians; when we returned for a couple of days at the start of the Summer Holidays we vowed to book in advance.

On Tour – Wareham

Red Lion. North Street, Wareham BH20 4AB, England. A little gem in Wareham Camping is not a thing I do lightly; >30 years in HM Forces saw to that. My wife and our girls want me to bed under canvas yet they haven’t promised it to be bug free and bullet free, they claim they’re working on it; I remain sceptical. After an investment of several hundred £ in tents, sleeping bags and the best toilet on the market I decided...

Thai Square, Windsor, 29 Thames Street, Windsor SL4 1PR, England. Simply Superb Having booked ourselves into Windsor for my wife’s birthday weekend we were keen to try the Thai Square as we reside in rural Somerset and good Thai restaurants are few and far between. I telephoned on Thursday evening for a reservation on Friday evening as the Website showed no availability, and immediately secured a table. We arrived for our...

On Tour – Rome Part Three

Piazzale Gregorio VII 33, 00165 Rome, Italy. Attentive staff, great value and very good food Having read numerous good reviews of Goose we were excited to try the food and overall experience for ourselves, especially as it is only a 3 minute walk from the apartment we had rented and an equal distance from the Vatican. So, we reserved a table yesterday for this evening. Arriving at 7pm we were the first of the evening as the doors had...
