  • Eat Local this Christmas - Festive Food Recommendations from Harker's Farm Shop

    Eat Local this Christmas - Festive Food Recommendations from Harker's Farm Shop

    Nestled in the pretty rural enclave of Clipston-On-The-Wolds in the Nottinghamshire countryside lies a hidden gem renowned by those in the know, including many top Midlands restaurants, for their exceptional produce. At the heart of the picturesque Blackberry Farm lies Harker’s Farm Shop, one of the most highly regarded butchers in the country, selling meat raised with the highest standards of traditional stockmanship in the surrounding fields. We caught up with the family-run buiness to get some recommendations for the Christmas dinner table.

  • Southwell infirmary tour

    A sneak preview of the unexplored Infirmary at Southwell Workhouse

    Whilst the Workhouse has been open for the public to explore since 2002, the adjacent Firbeck Infirmary has remained largely off-limits to the public, save for a small section housing the café and staff offices. In years gone by, this infirmary housed various vulnerable groups including the ill, the mentally infirm, the elderly and children. It hides a wealth of its own stories and secrets within its walls, but has lain empty and untouched for a decade, a century of history gradually fading into the dust. But this is about to change...

    A visit to Castle Rock Brewery after their double win at the STARS Awards

    Castle Rock Brewery certainly have plenty to celebrate this month. Not only did they win the Sustainable Tourism Award at the Nottinghamshire Hospitality STARS Awards, but the Canalhouse scooped the prestigious Tourism Pub of the Year Award. We can’t resist dropping by for a chat; the Sustainable Tourism Award is arguably the most important of all and we’re intrigued to know how they did it.

    We meet with Liv Auckland, Brand and Communications Manager, and Pete McWilliam, Head of Property, Maintenance and Technical Services.

  • Let's talk about Nottingham's ginious Redsmith Distillery

    Let's talk about Nottingham's ginious Redsmith Distillery

    We took a trip to Redsmith Distillery to find out more about the award-winning gin crafted here in the heart of Nottingham and get an exclusive taste of the new Outlaw Gin.

    We met up with creator Wayne Asher at the small but perfectly formed distillery in Sneinton Market, where he regaled us with tales about how he took his first steps in the world of spirit making, a far cry from his former career in aerospace and aircraft engines. Following a stint as plumbing and heating engineer he was looking for new challenge and began searching for a project which would bring him joy, and a product which could bring joy to others. Inspired by a documentary on Sip-Smith distillery in London and their pioneering work with HMRC to legalise small scale distilleries, he knew exactly what he wanted to achieve.
