We are just a few random friends who love food. We will aim to provide you with honest commentary about the places you want us to visit.
We are a bit different to other food blogs because we listen to our readers. Many of our reviews are based on reader requests, not based on what our stomachs want!
We would love to hear if you have any requests for particular places you'd want us to visit so we can blog about. So send us an email or catch us on Twitter
