When I visited Brentwood in April 2012 it was mainly to go down and have a night out at the now famous Sugar Hut nightclub but as my family and I are all fans of the only way is Essex it made sense that we would have a look around the High Street and visit some of the shops owned by the cast of the show. One of the shops we visited was Lucy’s boutique owned by Lucy Mecklenburgh.Lucy’s boutique can be found on 49 Ongar road, Brentwood, CM15 9AZ and we found that it was quite easy to find just off the main High Street of Brentwood. Basically if you head out of town so to speak and then cross over a main road you just have a small road to walk down to find the boutique.The shop ...Read More

Nando's Brentwood

Restaurant

Nando’s seems to be one of those places that up until around a year ago I just had never tried nor had I been interested in trying. When I did try it though I loved it and it fast became one of my favourite places to eat! This review focuses on my visit to Nando’s on Brentwood High Street in Essex.**What is Nando’s and what do they do?**Nando’s is basically a Portuguese style restaurant which offers mainly chicken but some vegetarian options as well along side their peri peri sauces to give it a bit of a kick. Starters at Nando’s aren’t something I like to buy as I find a main meal fills me enough but you are able to get small items such as dips and pitta or a bow...Read More

Given that my trip to Brentwood, Essex was pretty much inspired by watching the programme the only was is Essex it was natural that as a group we would want to visit some of the places which feature on the show. One of the places that we decided to go and visit was Minnie’s boutique which is a boutique owned by Sam and Billie Faiers.Minnie’s opened in the spring of 2011 so is relatively new but despite this the boutique does very well with fans of the show regularly visiting. The boutique is just off the main Brentwood High Street but is quite tricky to find so I would advise just asking someone to point you in the right direction. The boutique is located on a small cobbled street which...Read More

For my birthday in April my sister, cousins and I planned a trip to the Sugarhut night club in Brentwood, Essex. ==Guestlist and tables==We did actually enquire about booking a table or booth for my birthday so that we would be guaranteed somewhere to sit down but when they quoted us at £750 for a table for ten we almost fainted! This does include a magnum of champagne and a magnum of a spirit of your choice and mixers but even so this was way above our budget. Perhaps if there were ten of us and it was a more special occasion we would have done this but for my birthday it was a bit much.We did however get on the guest list and to do this you need to contac...Read More

==Booking==I booked two twin rooms online via the Premier Inn website were we paid £53 for each room which I thought was very reasonable for a hotel so close to where we wanted to be. As the room was booked on a flexible rate it meant we did not need to pay for it until we checked in to the room and we had until 1pm on the day of arrival to cancel the hotel rooms should we need to which I think is a bonus just in case something were to crop up.==Where is it?==The Premier Inn Brentwood is ideally located if you are staying in Brentwood I have to say because it is literally a five minute drive away from the M1 and the A12. It is located very near to the railway stat...Read More
