    The Lion at Basford Review

    There’s no shortage of amazing pubs in Nottinghamshire, and while there’s many characterful options in Nottingham city centre, it’s always worth exploring a little further afield, to find a hidden gem.

Tour of the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum

On a sunny Friday morning I ventured into the town of Eastwood to find out more about the famous D.H. Lawrence. I’ve heard a lot about him and read some of his books but never actually knew much about his life and background. I was really looking forward to the day ahead. The small ex-mining…

Apples flourish in Orchards, so very appropriate the DeVere Venues Orchard Hotel named its restaurant after the juicy, sour and world renowned Bramley Apple, first…
