Despite having never eaten at George’s I have heard some great things about the menu, and I was looking forward to experimenting with a delicious gin, rather than my usual simplistic formula of: Gin + Tonic + Ice.

    East is East at Nottingham Playhouse ★★★★★

    Nottingham Playhouse welcomed the brand new production of this Olivier Award-winning comedy on 25th May, and it’s quickly become a sensation among those who’ve seen it.

    Chip shop owner George has his work cut out as head of the Khan household. Back in George’s homeland, Pakistan, a father rules the house; but in 1970s Salford, as Britain evolves and rebels, his teenage children are proving quite the challenge.
