Soft Play Sessions in Barton Le Clay, Shortstown or Stewartby.

SOFT PLAY! If you are looking for somewhere different to take the little ones this week and you live near BARTON LE CLAY, SHORTSTOWN or STEWARTYBY then try a stay and play group by Runaround Rascals Beds And MK. £4 per child (£2 for siblings) plus usual selections of tea, coffees biscuits.  I like these types of toddler groups as the kids are always worn out at the end of the session!

Monday – 9.30-11.30am Stewartby Social Club (MK43 9NB )
Thursday 9.30-11.30am Shortstown Village Hall (MK42 0QL)

Frescoes Coffee House Bedford – complete with Michelangelo fresco artwork outside

Frescoes Coffee House in Bedford is a lovely little cafe which boasts a Michelangelo fresco recreation on the outside wall by a local Bedford Artist called Iain Carstairs (sadly passed away in 2016) he used a pigment paint on lime plaster which is a technique dating back to 1500 BC.

The artwork will live on for many years and it’s a lovely surprise to see when you walk past 20 Mill Street Bedford (MK40 3HD)

The cafe is small yet welcoming and is a great place to sit for a while to recharge your batteries. They have a lovely atmosphere and you can sit outside, inside or upstairs.  The upstairs section is  perfect if you need to escape for a while read your paper, do some work or just catch up with friends. When I visited recently I bought a beautiful slice of Victoria Sponge Cake but sadly my toddler wouldn’t let me enjoy it in the restaurant (due to the loud screaming that I didn’t want to put the other diners through) so I asked for a takeaway and gladly ate it at home whilst my little one had a well deserved nap!

Frescoes Coffee House rates a 4.5 on trip Advisor  (at time of writing) with their cakes coming out on top as the most reviewed items. They have a great selection of lunch options and the service was very friendly. I will be visiting again soon!

Amici – A Traditional Italian Restaurant in Bedford

Me and my husband went to an amazing Italian restaurant in Bedford called Amici.

It’s a small traditional Italian restaurant in the heart of Bedford (27 St. Peter’s Street)

When I want to find new places to go I always ask the Bedford Facebook community page where to go. (I love a bit of research!) Out of around 40 people all recommending great Italian restaurants in Bedford (there are a few to choose from!) this one came out top.

So based on positive local feedback we went on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was very busy, but service was perfect and food came out quickly. Beautiful food and the staff were all very friendly.  Everyone always asked us what we have to eat when I post anything on social media so here we go..

We had the Mediterranean dips and Italian breads to start with which were a generous portion, I had Ravioli for main (this had an amazing butter sauce) hubby had lamb which he enjoyed very much and not something we would have picked before in an Italian Restaurant and for pudding we had the Tartufo Limoncello and Affogato. We ended up feel very full and both agreed we will come again soon.

It is an ideal setting for any occasion, whether  you want a romantic meal for two, a dinner with friends, business meal or a lively birthday celebration you will have a great time here.

Their website states that they can cater for most dietary requirements (vegetarian, halal, gluten-free…etc) but I always advise to ring any restaurant before you go and they can accommodate parties of up to 40 people in main restaurant and also up to 30 people in their conservatory.

Give it a go and let me know what you think in the comments box or on my social media pages.
