This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Date Night at The Wotton Hatch

My husband and I were recently invited to a press evening at the newly refurbished The Wotton Hatch, where we were both treated to a lovely 3-course meal.

The Wotton Hatch is based in Dorking, Surrey. A picturesque countryside restaurant that is not too far from London. It has undergone a renovation where they completely changed the décor and also their menu.

Never to turn down free foods and always up to trying out new dishes, I dragged my husband along and went along to their press evening. Now, I have a feeling I have been to The Wotton hatch before. I did have family members who lived in Dorking, and I’m pretty sure I have visited Wotton Hatch.

My memories are a little hazy on how it looked before, but when you stepped into the newly refurbished The Wotton Hatch, you are blown away by how quaint this small restaurant is. I felt It has an old countryside charm to it while also being fresh and modern.

The restaurant is split into three-part: There the pub area which has a cosy fireplace and leather chairs, there is also the hidden dining area which is used for a more formal dining event. And finally, the last area is the main restaurant which has an elegant, spacious feel to it.

As soon as we entered, we were treated to a gin cocktail, where I had grapefruit gin, while he had cucumber and gin. We then moved onto the second lot of cocktail where I had a pineapple daiquiri, and my husband had a French martini.

The Wotton Hatch has refurbished their menu, so we luckily were able to try out all their new dishes, good job we both had an empty stomach as the 3-course meal we were treated to was out of this world.

For starter, we had deep fried brie, which is melted cheese in breadcrumb deep-fried. That was delicious and a great way to start the meal.

For the main course, we both had a dirty cheeseburger with gravy and fries. Yes, you read that right, gravy, not a usual choice but, trust me it works. As a side, we had onion rings and, mac and cheese. I’m going through a phase right now where I want mac and cheese with everything, so I wasn’t going to say no to it.

For dessert, I had a chocolate fudge brownie, and he has a chocolate bomb. The chocolate bomb is quite a cool idea, a chocolate shell where you pour hot cream, and it melts to reveal a dessert within the shell. There is a demonstration of how it works on my Instagram.

Now I must admit my eyes were bigger than my stomach. All the foods were delicious, and we both enjoyed it, but by the end of the meal, we were both adequately overfed and couldn’t take another bite.

Let me tell you a little more details on the newly refurbished The Wotton Hatch as it boasts beautiful gardens with sunset views over the middle of the Surrey Hills. Old oak beams are featured throughout the building, bringing country style and cosiness.

Its new, improved décor is a top to tail transformation, taking inspiration from the UK’s most luxurious dining and drinking hotspots. The sophisticated décor combines rustic orange, grey and dark green with a floral print to ceiling panelling, a statement fireplace and textured finishes. The wooden and leather finishes create an authentic and cosy feel to the historic pub, a listed building that once formed part of the grounds of an old mansion hotel.

The newly refurbished restaurant is now open to the public, now my advice would be that if you are in around Dorking or been exploring the Surrey Hills (it where I did my Denbie Hike) and need a place to be wine or dine, then I would highly recommend The Wotton Hatch. You will not be disappointed.

    I’m getting hungry looking at all of your food photos! The drinks look delicious! I never had the cheese brie w breadcrumbs- those look really good! I have heard about the gravy and the french fries! My daughter loves gravy with her french fries too! Looks like you had a fun evening out!
