My Valentine's Weekend!

So I thought I would do a post on what I did for Valentine's weekend.

I was lucky enough to be surprised with corporate hospitality tickets to the Newcastle Falcons vs Leicester Tigers match on the 12th.


If you know me, then you'll know I LOVE rugby! I grew up playing and loving it so this was fantastic! 
We were greeted and taken up to our table which was set out ready for a feast and lots of alcohol as well as some exciting 'guess the score' prize contests to get involved with. 


There was match beer included in our package so the boys all tucked into those but I myself prefer wine so I started with a glass of lovely merlot! 

We continued chatting until it was supper time.
In good old rugby style it was curry.
4 different types!! Great for me as I don't eat red meat so I had a mix of vegetarian and chicken.
It was so worth the wait! I am such a foodie and adore a good Indian. It of course came with poppadoms and naan bread but the BEST bit was the lime pickle!! - I have a really eclectic pallet so I enjoy the weirdest of foods! 

I am a dessert queen too. I LOVE desserts, so of course when they offered 4 choices I had to try 2. I'm not ashamed because I know I can eat well throughout the rest of the week and why not enjoy yourself when the opportunity arises? 

After supper, it was rugby time! 
We had great seats and it was a fantastic match. If you ever have the chance to watch a rugby match at a proper ground, I would hugely recommend it. 
It's just great!! 


The Falcons won with quite a big lead which was a great thing to happen at their home ground but overall the atmosphere, company and food made it such a fantastic time. 

On the Saturday, my boyfriend and I had booked the Valentine weekend 4 course meal at Loch Fyne. 
It was amazing! 
I love fish and Loch Fyne is just wonderful. I've eaten there before and loved it so naturally we both wanted to go there for this meal. 

It did not disappoint!! 
Our menu was amazing and the food that followed was to die for. 


I had the Duck, followed by the Cod Fillet ( without the pork belly ) and the milk chocolate and passion fruit ganache. 


I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and fish/seafood dishes. 

Overall I had a wonderful weekend, I hope you all did too! X
