Roast rating : OXBO Bankside

“Nothing prosecco can’t fix”


Last week, to celebrate a couple of family birthdays, we went to OXBO Bankside (http://www.oxbobankside.co.uk). Of course we went for the bottomless prosecco option – it would be rude not to when it’s only an additional £12 each… I’d definitely recommend booking as it was fairly busy when we went, with lots of big groups and is definitely a good location for a celebration. 372 more words

Sigh, let me explain...

Pet hates.  I guess we all have them.

  • Telling Irish, Scots and Welsh that they are English, it’s the same thing really.
