The Perfect Serve

#GinFestival in #Coventry

Midlands Gourmet Girl

On Saturday my partner and I went along to Coventry Cathedral for the Gin Festival. I am a massive gin fan, him not so much, so to be faced with more than 100 gins was going to be a challenge.

Gin Festival 20 May 2017

On arrival we were handed our Spanish style balloon tasting glasses, a Gin Explorers Guide and a handy across the body bag. Then we were directed to the tills to purchase tokens – this is the important bit –  the bars do not accept cash and just like a coffee shop loyalty card each time you purchase a drink and mixer your card is stamped. A fiver gets you a shot of gin, mixer and garnish.

Then free to wander to the four bar stations A – D each containing different optics it was decision time. Classic London Dry? A sweeter Plymouth blend? A malty genever or fruit infusions?

Paprika Grill House – Bearwood

Paprika in Bearwood…..#BrumisBrill Grill House…..get there for a lovely meal!


Out In Brum - Paprika Grill Bearwood - ExteriorTo counter those of you that say we only eat at and review upmarket venues, here’s one just for you- the cheap and cheerful Paprika Grill House in Bearwood.

On a random friday evening we decided there was nothing on TV and we were looking for an excuse to head towards Bearwood to play with a friend’s new rescue dog. They suggested we try out Paprika for “meat on a stick” – how could we refuse?!

The owners have recently renovated the interior, cladding some walls with wood, so it’s now a bit Scandinavian sauna with Tiffany lamps.   It’s very clean and bright, in fact it’s very bright and the the owner was discussing that he needed to have them dimmed – an attention to detail we appreciate seeing.
