Lockdown has taught me a lot, the good, the bad and how I can better myself and my lifestyle – this is something I will share with you all soon in a blog post I have planned! However, Lockdown has made me miss A LOT – if you know me, you’ll know I am a massive party girl at heart and I love going out on a Saturday to get drunk and to socialise with the people of my home town. I’ve missed going out – just being able to go pub for a pint, I have missed going to the cinema, travelling, the gym and most of all I have missed being able to go out for food. Yes, Takeaways are still running but its just not the same – being able to dress up and going for some lovely food!
One of my favourite places to visit in my hometown (Stafford) is The Island – which is a gorgeous Indian restaurant near the centre of my town. I have been going to this curry house for years, whether it is for a chilled meal for 2, a group meal or even a Christmas party – they cater for all and NEVER disappoint. Not to mention the food, they offer is so succulent and delicious – even if you are not curry lover they have a good range of English Meals as well! The Island have a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 and have a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor. Even more exciting for The Island, they have been confirmed Finalists for the Good Food Award Winner 2020 – if you tried/visited The Island and loved it as much as me, you can vote for them here. I would be amazing to see such a worthy finalist win; I know a lot of Stafford will most likely agree with me!
The best part about this blog post, is that the delicious Indian food they offer isn’t even what I need to share with you. Addition to this, The Island recently noticed a large interest into their own dessert menu, which let them to open ‘The Island Desserts’ just over a month ago! They offer the most INCREDIBLE desserts – honestly don’t knock it until you try it! Like a lot of people in the world, I have such a sweet tooth and these desserts get my mouth watering just while I write this post. Do you have a favourite common chocolate bar? Now Imagine that, on top of a waffle, in a cookie dough or even mixed in a milkshake/sundae… this is just a small percentage of what The Island Desserts offer!

Over the past week I have actually been in touch with The Island, they have very kindly given me some free desserts to share with you all and just to enjoy on this lovely Monday evening! So as I mentioned before I have a big sweet tooth, and my favourite chocolate is Kinder Bueno which is what I have chose to enjoy on a waffle, its so tasty! They very kindly sent me a malteser milkshake and malteser cookie dough, oh my word – it was good! Just look at the pictures, it looks so delicious – trust me it is! So if you fancy ordering from The Island, you can via JUST EAT or UBER EATS.
