The Royal Peasant


Being from England and living in America (especially the South) has its obstacles; you can’t get good Pimms, you can’t have a classic rainy, cold ‘summer’ BBQ and you certainly can’t go for a stroll on the Heath! However, now you can have some good ‘ole pub food and The Royal Peasant fits the bill!

This small British Pub tucked away in the heart of Five Points is where you will find everything from half pints to crisps to bangers and mash….as well as some fish and chips! What more could a Brit ask for?!

The other afternoon my husband and I headed over there for a late lunch on my day off. We both had the Burger and a salad to share. I also recommend the house crisps, chicken curry and fish and chips (basically you can’t go wrong here!) While you are at it don’t forget to order a pint (of cider)…or half!

This is Corey’s mad face when I tell him I have to take a picture before starting!



The place is filled with everything British!

I wore a dress I picked up a couple of weeks ago from Equipment. I love their stuff – it is so simple and comfortable, this dress especially because you can easily dress it up with these pumps (I wore this out for my husbands birthday back in May) or keep it casual for a pub lunch!

Flashback Friday

While I was back in England a few months ago I spent some time in Oxford….Since it is Flashback Friday I thought I would share.

When we arrived we headed straight to a lunch spot my sister recommended: Turf Tavern.


It is a small pub that you have to go down a small alley way to get to. It seems that other buildings were just built around it. It has so much character!

After a very filling lunch we headed to a covered market area where we yet again had more food…

These were amazing! While munching on cookies we explored more of the small shops.

One of the last places we visited was a Harry Potter shop.

What are some places you guys recommend when visiting Oxford? My sister now lives there so I know I will be back the next time I am across the pond.

– Mother’s Day –

Mother’s day was a couple of Sundays ago in England, the 15th to be precise, and it was the first time in about 9 years that I have been able to be at home with my mum on the day! It was fantastic – both my sister and I under the same roof with my parents. We decided there was no better way to spend it than with a pub lunch! That is after we gave mum her gifts.

We (my sister and I) picked up a HUGE bouquet of flowers, a spa voucher and this little gem (see below) to help say thank you for being the best mum out there!

Flowers tea time

It does have the word mother in it!

Then it was off to the pub. My aunt and Uncle were also up for the day so we all piled in our cars and headed off!

I will say that we had a very fancy ride to the pub.



Once we arrived we all busied ourselves with drinks and studying the menu.

I hope that I am over across the pond for mother’s day next year…we will have to see.

What did you guys do for Mother’s day or what do you have planned if you are in America (you’ve got some planning time).

Lots of Love,
