This month: Celebrate Bob Marley’s Birthday

If you live in Winchester like me, you won’t have been able to miss the latest edition to its restaurant scene, the brightly coloured Turtle Bay! I attended its recent launch party and I think it’s fair to say the folks of Winchester gave the Caribbean restaurant a very warm welcome. Here’s a few pics from the fabulous launch…

With the restaurant now well and truly open, this month Turtle Bay Winchester is commemorating Bob Marley’s birthday on 6th February. This means the entire month of February is dedicated to all things reggae. Plus, they also have a special 4-course Valentine’s menu for £25 and a special singles offer too (No Woman/Man No Cry).

As well as a musical celebration of Bob Marley and reggae, Turtle Bay also has Marley-inspired Cocktails – ‘Marley Mojito’, ‘Jammin’’, ‘Buffalo Soldier’ and ‘One Love.’ Yum! There’s even a two-for-one offer on these special cocktails too. I’ll definitely be popping in to make the most of Marley month!

If you’re not already tempted to book a table, here’s some mouthwatering shots of the food on offer…

New Launch: The Wine Utopia Warehouse

It’s all been a little bit wine themed lately at FoodTeaLife (well, I need something to get me through the dark months until Christmas!)…so in keeping with the theme I thought I’d tell you about Wine Utopia’s newly opened wine warehouse.

I popped along to the opening evening in October and enjoyed a few fabulous glasses of Hattingley Valley’s Classic Cuvée and some delicious canapés.

The newly opened warehouse is located on London Road in Kingsworthy, just on the outskirts of Winchester. It was great fun getting to take a sneak peek at the new store before it officially opened and there were some lovely people in attendance too. A very good evening!

I learned that the new Wine Utopia Warehouse is open to both trade customers and the public, offering the same quality wines and friendly service that you get in the Winchester and Stockbridge stores, just with all the benefits of wholesale buying. Sounds good to me! It will be perfect for stocking up for events and parties or just getting a stash of your favourite wine in.

Parking is easy too, the place literally perfect for filling your car up with wine! I hope to pop in soon and stock up in time for the festive season. If you fancy stocking up too you can find the new Wine Utopia Warehouse at Unit B1, The Foundry, London Road, Kingsworthy, SO23 7QA.

Many thanks to the Wine Utopia team for the invite and a lovely evening!
