Treat night: Gustos

Restaurant

Friday night was treat night with my beautiful new mummy friend, Loveday!

We went to Alderley Edge and as we failed to book anywhere, ended up in the Italian chain Gustos. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind Gustos but I prefer non chains.

Anyway, we shared a cheesy garlic bread (delicious), I had the pork gnocchi main (too oily) and I ended on a brownie with pistachio ice cream (delightful). All helped down with champagne and cocktails.

Great night, there are better places to go here but I couldn’t complain too much. Good service and cheap!

As a belated birthday treat I met a friend at the Gardeners cottage at Tatton Park, Knutsford.

We enjoyed a scrummy afternoon tea and a much needed catch up.

For the second time now we each had the Gardeners tea: £10 for a choice of two bloomers, cake/scone and tea/coffee. For the second time, neither of us finished it due to the portion size. This place really is great value and top notch quality.

If ever you are around the area you should treat yourself to to a visit, not only is it great value and tasty, but the surroundings are truly beautiful.

Lastnight we enjoyed the pleasure of having Gavs sister and husband staying with us.

We took them into knutsford and ended up in a new restaurant called Jack Rabbits.

Now this isn’t really a review because by the time we got to the restaurant I was totally tipsy but I wanted to share the fuzzy memories I do have as I think they were all rather positive! 😊

I had a pulled pork burger with a side of onion rings and it completely hit the mark. Very naughty, just on the right side of grease and with a hint of sweetness.

The thing I was most impressed with however was the range of sauces they brought to the table, which amongst everything you could want, included a very HOT sauce!!!

And the presentation was great!
