New addition to Southbourne - Cliff House Hotel

If you want somewhere new in Southbourne to try for a relaxing drink and nice food then I've been to theĀ Cliff House Hotel a couple of times now. Newly opened a few weeks back, I think it has every potential to do well.

It has a nice patio area at the back and a large garden. Good for late evening and day time alike.

The food is a very good standard as well.

Now that's a lot of drink - 450+

I've just totalled up the different number of wines I had added to the site and it is over 450. Probably most weren't that great and the list is just nothing more than a record for my own use rather than a guide for anyone else.

Hope that doesn't look bad :-)

Just means I am enjoying life.

Cheers and good health to you all.

Larder House / Library of Liquor

My favourite place that is only on my flipping high street is no firmly on the foodie/drinkie map seeing as the owner of the The Larder House, James Fowler, has become the World Class UK Bartender of the Year 2014.

No doubt hipster-types from London will have it on their bucket lists of things to do and places to visit. Hey, we were there first, but it's nice to share.

Bradley watch - Kickstarter success

It's great to hear of great successful things that happen through the collaborative power of the internet, supporters and innovators alike.

I have just put an order in for one of these watches from Eone. It started off as a project as a watch for the blind, but I think this will become a must-have timepiece and a design classic.

Check out the an overview on this Kickstarter Project.
