Portly Eats | Parker’s Tavern | Cambridge, UK

There’s a new restaurant in town and it’s in the newly refurbished University Arms Hotel.  Parker’s Tavern is offering fabulous food with wonderful views of Parkers Piece.  I went along during their soft opening to see what it was all about.

Portly Eats | Wildwood Sundae | Wildwood, Peterborough, UK

There is something stuck in my head about the word Sunday. I think it’s from a commercial I saw once in America. You know, one of the lower budget ones that scream at you through the T.V. screen?  I’m not sure if it was real or not but at the end it said, rather shouted…
