Doncaster Racecourse and Exhibition Centre

Attraction | "A great day out at the Races"

Doncaster Racecourse and Exhibition Centre Photo, Doncaster, United Kingdom
Quote:
One of the primary race events, the St Leger is held at Doncaster and so this race course is one of the UK’s largest. We recently got hold of an offer to go to one of the summer race meetings on a Saturday for £8 a person, and had a super afternoon at the races. Doncaster Races is an event to dress up for; most men are in suits and women need no excuse to dress up in any case. I’m not one for a suit (I look like a ragbag within 30 minutes of whatever I put on) but chose tailored shorts and a new T-shirt. While I didn’t feel too underdressed I’d guess I was in the bottom 10% in terms of effort. Nothing new there.The racecourse is a great place for people watching and feeling sup...Read More

Restaurant | "Pickering's Feast Deli and Cafe"

We spotted the Feast Deli in the centre of Pickering last autumn while at a friend’s birthday celebrations and we enjoyed picking through the olives, cheeses and savoury pastries for our evening meal on that occasion. This time we returned to give the little cafe at the rear of the shop an inspection. As it was late lunchtime and we had already booked a table at our pub hotel for the evening we really only wanted a light bite to eat. I chose a platter of sandwiches. I’m a bit of a devil for Coronation Chicken although I don’t tend to order it that often as I always suspect the oily, creamy concoction will have a lot of calories; however on this occasion I was on vacation so it had to be do...Read More

The Moors Inn

Hotel | "Great food, distinct lack of Shower at the Moors Inn"

Quote:
I can wholeheartedly recommend the bar and the food – the pub is located in a lovely quiet village, and we loved sitting outside in the sun with the wide lazy main street in front of us. The village is Appleton-le-Moors and it is one of the last British villages that retain the original medieval lay out – a wide main street and then two back lanes either side with plenty of garden land for farming and growing food. There was a choice of three real ales all kept well, and as we were staying overnight we had booked a table and found our evening meal was excellent. I really enjoyed my pate starter and found the pate nice and fresh and home-made. The crab salad main course was ev...Read More

LaLa's Restaurant

Restaurant | "LaLa's Huddersfield - SoSo"

The opening of a new curry restaurant doesn't pass us by for long, and considering the location in Huddersfield city centre is so prominent (located in a beautiful Georgian building near the grand train station), we dropped by to LaLa’s within a week or so of it opening. The building inside is wonderful and I remember it well as my local building society and once a month I used to admire the luxuriant and plentiful soft grey marble as I queued up to pay the mortgage on my house. Fortunately that original marble and understated but ornate plasterwork remains, although I have to say I found the additional LaLa’s furnishings a little gaudy by comparison. First of all the plastic d...Read More

Ilkley Moor

Attraction | "Take a stroll to the Cow and Calf"

Ilkley Moor Photo, Yorkshire, England
Quote:
Given that it was a nice afternoon and I didn't want to do anything too energetic, I decided to hop on the train to Ilkley on the edge of the Yorkshire dales and take the stroll for a mile or so up the hill to the famous Cow and Calf. The route to the Cow and Calf starts on the road at the main train station – just go left from the town centre in front of the station and either follow the road, or take one of the paths which goes behind the houses on the right hand side of the road as you go up. There is a car park near to the main rocks if you are feeling particularly lazy. The Cow and Calves is a rock formation on the prow of a hill with a splendid valley view with the pret...Read More
