Turtle Bay Peterborough Restaurant Review

Despite being open for a few weeks now somehow I’d not yet managed to make it to one of Peterborough’s hottest new restaurants, so when Turtle Bay invited me over for a review I didn’t hang around.

With the children packed off to the grandparents for the night, my wife and I headed out to Turtle Bay to put the menu through it’s paces. Continue reading “Turtle Bay Peterborough Restaurant Review”

Middletons Steakhouse – Coming soon to Peterborough

It’s taken a while but finally, Peterborough is about to get a bona-fide steak restaurant.  Yes we’ve had some good restaurants in outlying villages, yes we’ve got national chain “grill” restaurants but finally, we’ve now Middletons.

Did someone order sunshine?

With temperatures in Peterborough almost knocking on the door of 30degrees this week it’s tempting to say summer is well and truly here – for a few more days at least so what better time to announce a new restaurant opening which is so packed full of sunshine you’re going to need factor-50 just to get through the door.  Clearly Turtle Bay’s openings team have a deal going with the Met Office as they’ve cleverly chosen this week to let us all know what we can expect when their new Queensgate restaurant opens next month.

All change for Peterborough’s food scene

I’ve neglected the blog over the past 18 months or so with only a scant post on trendy pubs and dessert bars, so I felt it was about time to take a look at what’s changed in the restaurant scene and try and predict what this could mean for Peterborough foodies.

Dearly departed

Let’s start off with those “eateries” we’ve lost, those that have bowed out amid pressure from others or maybe the city centre just wasn’t a good enough fit for them any more. Continue reading “All change for Peterborough’s food scene”

TAMU Dessert Bar, Cowgate

TAMU has established itself as the go-to place in Peterborough for extravagant waffle and cr?pe-based delicacies – both sweet and savoury so when owner TAMU got in touch asking if I’d like to come along with a few friends to the grand opening of their second dessert bar in Peterborough, I grabbed my elasticated-waist trousers and gladly accepted.

Argo Lounge restaurant to open in Peterborough

I’m sure I’ve said it before but restaurant openings in Peterborough are like buses (the Stagecoach number 1 to be precise). ? After a spell of not a great deal happening in the Peterborough restaurant scene we get half a dozen new venues slapped onto our plate for us to feast upon.

The one that’s caught my attention the most is the new Argo Lounge restaurant (officially cafe/bar), part of the Loungers chain. Despite having almost 50 “Lounges” to their name, they’re relatively unknown in this part of the country however you might be more familiar with their sister chain of Cosy Club restaurants, with the Cosy Club in Stamford being a popular destination for Peterborough diners looking for a change from the norm.

Peterborough Curry Club visits Maharanis, Deeping

This visit was with Peterborough Curry Club and the first time to Maharanis for our members, yet we were made to feel extremely welcome by the staff who were attentive and helpful throughout the meal. We took advantage of the restaurant’s Wednesday night deal as it seems had most of Deeping as the restaurant was at capacity with several other large groups.
