Top 5 Noodle Restaurants in Bournemouth

For years, my knowledge of noodles only spanned from Super to Pot. It wasn’t until the eve of my 20s when I discovered the umami charm of udon and the tingling allure of spicy ramen. Ever since then, I have been on a mission to find the best noodles available on my doorstep...

Maciek Kijewski, Founder: Molecular Magic Creative Catering

Food is a very big thing in my family. We don't have any chefs apart from me and my brother. But in terms of background, it is just passion and love for good produce, and that's how I grew up. I grew up with good food; curing, preserving, smoking... Sunday lunches with the whole family... that's how it started...

Review: Kala Thai, Bournemouth

On offer for us were an array of starter and entrée dishes, including two varieties of spring roll (made in-house, like all the other dishes), plus chicken and king prawn favourites. Spiciness ranged from the mild and savoury, to the chokingly peppery -- but nothing on there that any true Thai food lover can't handle. We only hope to return once they're open to try out some of their house specials -- the Weeping Tiger, a Thai-style steak, just sounds awesome...

127 Local Venues Where You Can “Eat Out To Help Out”

It has been a motto throughout this pandemic -- Support Local. Now that, as of today, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak's EAT OUT TO HELP OUT scheme has begun, offering diners 50% off eat-in meals and non-alcoholic drinks, the time to support your local hospitality businesses has never been more right...!

Opening Soon: Kala Thai

At the head of the Kala Thai operation is chef and businessman Tom Saengthong. Tom, who hails from Bangkok, will be supported by his wife and a team of four Thai chefs, as his restaurant prepares to open from midday until late seven days a week. This will also open up job opportunities in the bar and front-of-house departments...

Joe Quinlan & Kalem Brinkworth, Founders: The Bonbon Boys

Kalem and I have known each other for eight years, and we've always wanted to do a business together. We have worked with each other in the past, so we know what one another's styles are like. But it took us a while to figure out exactly what we wanted to do and what the product was. And so, during lockdown there was a lack of pick-and-mix -- for two people who love sweets, that's not very good...

Matt England, Founder: Sun Rum

About five years ago a friend and I went to a gin tasting evening and we were both at the point in our careers where we were both stable but were getting a bit restless with wanting to create something for ourselves; work for ourselves. So, I dipped my toes in spirits, manufacturing and retailing with gin and I loved the idea of it. But I felt the gin category was a very saturated market and I wanted to create something unique. I looked at a lot of data in regard to trends and other styles of drink and rum kept shouting out at me...

Laura Hardwick, Baker

Even though cupcakes are my biggest stressor (because I always worry they're not perfect), I love the satisfaction of seeing a box of cakes ready to leave. I love making customers' ideas come alive in cake form. I wouldn't say I have a 'favourite', but I think my Coffee and Walnut cakes are always a big hit, and I make a mean Lemon Drizzle...!

Krishna Malla (a.k.a. Tech Moon), Graffiti Artist

It's been a slow game -- it took a long time to get to where I am today. I started in the events industry. When I graduated from uni, I shamelessly promoted myself and a lot of other artists as well with the event that I was working on. That gave me a platform to make a mark on the place where I am living, and also create work at the same time. Jobs have just snowballed off that and grown bigger and bigger. Each mural that I paint is a kind of billboard in itself, so it works for advertising...

Ryan Smith & Stephen Caunter, Founders: No.1 Brasserie and Bar

The initial restrictions such as social distancing were a challenge when you take into account the size of the brasserie. We had to remove tables and ensure the spacing was correct, which left us with just six tables and limited covers...

Over the past few years, climate change activism has become increasingly mainstream. Public opinion has shifted in favour of concerted national action to reduce the UK’s emissions.

In response to this, a growing number of local councils across the country have declared climate and ecological emergencies...
