I like to write. I like to talk. I like to meet new people. I like to eat. Oh and I'm fond of wine and gin. And beer.

Change is afoot in the Feast and Glory camp and I've relocated myself to Wordpress!

That's right - I've finally had enough of Blogger and switched to the other side!

It's still very much so a work in progress... I've got to go through ALL my old posts and re categorise them AND sort out the images... but it's already looking better!

To celebrate I even wrote a little blog for you all.

Pub Crawls with Jezza
It's been a while... sorry about that... but let's not dwell on the issue as I have a new post for you all! Inspired by a recent Exposed magazine post about dogs in Sheffield pubs, I decided it was time that I did a post on the subject too.  Our Jez is a re...

A trip down Kelham Island
Since I've started drinking more beer, Kelham Island has become one of my favourite places to while away an afternoon. So on day two of our 'staycation' we headed down there for a few pints. We kicked things off with a celebratory breakfast of smoked salmon...

A quick lunch at the Rutland Arms
The Rutland Arms is one of my favourite pubs in Sheffield. It's a 'proper' pub that happens to serve damn fine beer and top notch food.  The food is courtesy of Chef Rico who is super passionate about his cooking and able to experiment thanks to the daily c...

Long Live The Blog!
So, I've been rather busy recently (this work/life balance thing has gone a bit skewiff recently... in a good way...) which means I just don't have time for the blog anymore (or the cleaning, gardening, painting...).  And I've been pretty close to jacking i...

Devonshire Cat, Sheffield
The Devonshire Cat has a long-standing reputation as a real ale pub in Sheffield - probably even more so since it was taken on by Abbeydale Brewery in January 2014. And with a detailed bottle menu of over 100 beers, 12 hand-pulls and 14 kegs, you can certai...
