Food Friday Review – The Punch bowl, Satley, Durham

The Punch Bowl Satley

In an aim to bring you more reviews from Durham, we have upped our visits to cute country pubs…. And everyone loves a country pub lunch don’t they?

The Punch Bowl in Satley is 5 minutes from the A68 and 15 minutes drive from Durham City. We live quite close to Satley and always drive through but haven’t visited so just before Christmas, we took the time to visit. The village is quite remote and rural so please do bare that in mind when you decide to visit!

Premurosa Make Me Feel Good Gift Subscription

Premurosa Make Me Feel Good 1


Premurosa is small, local independent business based in the North East of England, Durham to be precise, and takes a little inspiration from Italy. Premurosa in Italian means thoughtful and a thoughtful gift is indeed what landed through my letterbox recently!

The Make Me Feel Good box (£20)* is monthly subscription scheme which is jam-packed full of glitz and goodness to really make you feel good! From the minute I opened the sleek branded packaging, I found myself covered in shiny sparkles and confetti which instantly brightened my mood. Peelingback the bold purple tissue paper revealed my feel good gifts.

BD Trade Secrets Flawless Primer


BD Trade Secrets Flawless Primer 1

I quite often buy make up from Supermarkets as I find it easy to remember to stock up on brand essentials while I’m pushing my trolley round. I also like that my red lipstick obsession helps rack  up my clubcard points but we’ll not tell the husband about that one ok?

The BD Trade Secrets line is a Tesco own brand mainstay. Reliable quality and great value for money, I know I will always find what I need.
