Breakfast is meant to be the most important meal of the day, but how many people can honestly say that they make time to eat it every day? I rarely ever eat breakfast, I either get up too late and don’t have time or I simply can’t stomach food at that time in the morning. It’s a terrible habit that I really need to get out of, but I will usually just have a coffee and that’s it until lunchtime.

As I lived in Kings Heath for a while last year, I always used to go through Moseley on the bus when I was going to and from the city centre and I’ve visited a few of the pubs and restaurants in the area, however I’d never actually been to The Fighting Cocks. I’ve known people who have been in there for a drink but I didn’t realise that they actually have a pretty extensive food menu, so when I was asked if I would like to review a three course meal, I was really curious.

I invited fellow blogger, Heidi to come along with me and we popped over to Moseley at around 1pm on a Saturday afternoon. We were expecting the place to be quite busy as it was the weekend, however there were only two other tables occupied in the dining area. There was a small table reserved for us towards the back of the pub near to an open fire which gave the place a really cosy feel. View Post


Here in Britain we love a good old takeaway, make no mistake about that. Friday night rolls around, you’ve had a long week and the last thing you want to do is cook. We all do it!

Reports have shown that 1 in 5 of us eat out or order takeaways in at least once a week, with takeaway sales surpassing £8bn in 2015 alone thanks to smartphones making it easier to order online via apps.

Which begs the question, with so many people ordering takeaway online what on earth are they eating? We all love a good Indian, I mean Birmingham did invent the Balti after all!

However, it’s not Indian that’s on the rise. Nor is it our other dependent choice of Chinese. Fish & Chips is always a good go-to takeaway, but even that has been beaten.  View Post
