Cosy Pubs in England and Wales

It’s that time of year when the winter chill is starting to creep upon us. A lot of us find it difficult to leave the house in the evening and would much rather curl up on the couch and watch TV. However if you had a nice cosy pub to visit, that serves great food, has an extensive wine list and a log fire, then I’m sure that could tempt you out for an evening of fun with your nearest and dearest.

Where ever you are located in the UK there is sure to be a nice cosy pub close by that offers a warm welcome and quality food, in a homely environment.

If you are venturing out this year to visit family and friends around the festive season, and fancy dining somewhere a little nicer than the standard motorway cafes which are always very Busy and ‘Basic’, why not veer off the beaten track a little and visit one of the UK’s cosiest pubs.

I visited North Wales last years and was advised to try a lovely traditional North Wales Country Pub called the Queens Head which is located in Glanwydden, Conwy. It has won numerous awards over the years and the food is just divine. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Check out some other UK Country Pubs and Inns.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Finding the right Christmas ideas couldn’t be easier with our vast range of ideas from a variety of high quality retailers. Browse through out gift ideas below to find the ideal present for your loved one, family or friends.

Christmas can be a stressful time for many, so why not escape
to the countryside this Christmas to a fabulous Country House Hotel in Snowdonia for a fabulous 3 day Festive Break. Ty’n Rhos Country House is offering a luxurious relaxing Christmas house party package in comfort and style. Let somebody else wait on you hand and foot for a change whilst you put your feet up and relax with a large glass of your favourite tipple. If you prefer to stay at home for Christmas but get away for the New Year, Ty’n Rhos is also offering 2 day New Year Sparkler.

Have you been left in charge to organise the Christmas party,
but struggling to find a designated driver. Well look no further, Castle Mini Coaches offer minibus hire around north wales to a destination of your choice. They will collect you and drop you back at your designated spot. This means everyone can indulge in a tipple or two and dance the night away without the stresses of having to rely on someone else or wait in those freezing taxis cues. Mini Coach Hire North Wales offers competitive rates and a professional and friendly service.

Now that you have your transportation sorted, you now need to find a memorable venue to house everyone. Everyone has different taste and preferences so it’s never going to be an easy task to get it right for everyone, so I have listed two of my favourite places in the Llandudno/Conwy area.

If Indian food is your preference then Jaya Restaurant Llandudno is definitely one not to miss. This Fine Dining Indian Restaurant is offering a fabulous 3 course Christmas menu including wine throughout the whole month of December. Although not your traditional Christmas feast, I’m sure you will have had enough sprouts by the end of the month, so why not try something a little different!

If you prefer the more traditional Christmas menu and a
warm and cosy environment, then The Queens Head, Glanwydden could be just what you are looking for. This fabulous Conwy Restaurant offers outstanding food, a friendly atmosphere and great service. It is also the winner of the AA pub of the year, Wales 2010.



Now what are you going to buy your nearest and dearest? Some people are easier to buy for than others, and it’s always nice to try and buy something a little bit different.

Do you know anyone that is learning to drive or has been
talking about it for quite a while but has not got around to it yet? Well why not give them a little push and buy them some driving lesson vouchers. Glan Conwy School of Motoring offers driving lessons & driving courses in North Wales, as well as Residential Driving Courses North Wales. The sooner they pass their test, the sooner they can pick you up from the pub, Cheeky!!!

The Festive Period is a time to put some effort into your
appearance,put on your best frock or suit and hit the town. For the ladies, why not go that extra mile this party season and try some Hollywood lashes. These fabulous lash extensions, will enhance your natural beauty, and are ideal for the party season, even better; there is no need to apply mascara. TH1 Beauty Salon North Wales currently has a special offer on Hollywood lashes until the 31st December for just £60.00, but book early to avoid disappointment.

For the boys, is your man or male relative on the larger side,
and always struggling to find a dinner suit for Christmas Parties? Well let’s help get him sorted this year with a great looking suit that he doesn’t have to squeeze into. Manshop stocks a range of Big Men’s Clothes to fit all. From evening wear through to shirts, jackets, belts, and socks. They cater for all large sizes and will not disappoint.


Christmas is a time to be Jolly, and what better way to help
you get into that Jolly mood than a lovely glass of your favourite red or white wine. Good wines online, has an extensive range of great quality wines to choose from and even stock a vast range of Low Sulphite Wines for those with sulphite intolerance.


Christmas is also a time to be snug, cosy,
and relaxed whilst watching the snow falling around you, even better when you are indoors in the warm with a glass of mulled wine. Conservatories offer great views of the weather outside, and if snow is falling it makes a picturesque setting. However if your furniture is quite old with springs sticking out, it’s just not quite the same. Great Garden Products has a great range of Conservatory Furniture that will bring comfort and style to your conservatory, a fabulous present for your loved ones, and one they will never forget.

For the more adventurous out there who are
looking for a new hobby, or wish to get involved with sailing or power boats, why not surprise them with a boat tuition course.
