Taps

Hello Leicesterians! (Actually, my dad always tells me that Leicester-folk are called Chisits, due to the way they say 'How much is it?' So maybe I'll go with that instead...) ...Hello Chisits! It has...


Sugarloaf Restaurant

This place describes itself on its website as Leicester's most happening restaurant. I disagree, since as I went it was empty but for my table. HOWEVER, it should definitely be more happening than it...


Leicester Royal Infirmary Urgent Care Centre

Firstly, I hope for obvious reasons that this review is entirely useless to most of you. Also as a 'day out' it's not recommended but I didn't know where else to put it! But I feel I want to write it...


Bradgate Park

Once upon a time, I went on a first date to Bradgate Park. We brought each other balloons, walked up the hill to what we called the giant penis, it's barely phallic in shape but it seemed funny at the...


Leicester Tigers

My dad goes loads and I had a season ticket when I was 14 so clearly, I'm an expert. I only get down to Welford Road about once a year now a days, if that, but I get enough blow by blow accounts when...


Knit One

As a very sporadic/crap knitter, I'm unsure whether I have the authority to review this shop. But whatever, I'm going to do it anyway. I got a Groupon voucher for a beginners' knitting workshop here....


Jones'

I said I was going to review my (as it's bloody freezing, two pairs of) socks off last night but instead I ended up going out to eat. All in the name of research, of course. And, as always, ok, as...


James' Cafe Bistro

Despite being right next to the Highcross, this place is pretty hidden in many respects but it's brilliant! I only discovered it recently when I went along with my ma and pa and was thoroughly...


Diwali Celebrations

So, unfortunately you'll have to wait a year (ish) for this to roll around again but get excited: FREE FIREWORKS DISPLAY! Everyone loves free things. This display is pretty good, and there's lots of...


Hakamou

It's really busy on weekends and dead in the week and it's certainly not cheap BUT they play cheesy 90s tunes, the bar people are wearing Hawaiin shirts and you get drinks served in coconuts and...


La Dolce Vita

Grotty looking on the outside, the food here is fab. I mean, really really tasty. The service is good, too. It's an Italian restaurant and they definitely make up for outside appearances with the...


The Vintage Fair at the Cathedral

This occurs every 2/3 months and it's good. You pay a pound to get in and then there's lots of stalls of lovely vintage clothes and jewellery and accessories and bits and bobs for you to look at. I've...


SET

This shop was in St Martin's Square, but now it's in the Highcross. I'm unsure how I feel about this, but I do really love this shop. It is for people who love...stuff. Useless things mainly. And...


Mrs Bridges'

This place is cute. It has really nice breakfasts. I really love Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine (not both at the same time, that would be far too EGGStravagant) and they're both really good here....


Paddy's Marten Inn Bar and Grill

This place is a strange one. So, the first time I went was on my mum's recommendation and it was a dark and rainy night in winter. And it's on this dark and rainy road where it looks like nothing is...


Troodos Taverna

Troodos Taverna doesn't look like much from the outside. But inside it's like being on holiday! There's even a naked mermaid painted on the wall, for those of you who like to see breasts. The chap who...
