I was lucky to get invited to the sold out opening event with a special performance by Honeyblood. It was amazing to see them live at this small, special event. Rum, good music & pretty surroundings is all you really need for a good night! The venue is decorated head to toe in neon lights and there’s loads of quirky ornaments scattered about! The Sailor Jerry theme runs strong throughout the venue but the main focus, of course, is the bar! I tried my very first…

Scotland aims to inspire the food industry and showcase the quality and versatility that Scottish seafood has to offer. Jimmy Buchan of the Scottish Seafood Association encouraged us to eat more Hake & expressed his passion for Scottish seafood through stories of his fishing adventures! Jamie Delap (pictured)…
