Date Night...The Pipe and Glass


So last night was date night and despite still being quite poorly (I am feeling much, much worse today, boo!), I was excited to get all dressed up and try somewhere new! 

I am really enjoying applying my makeup recently as I have expanded my collection and have some lovely products to play with! I tend to always stay quite classic with my makeup. My favourite eras are the 1920s and 1940s so I love to incorporate this when doing my makeup regardless of the occasion! My number one staple is a red lip...I am rarely seen without my trusty lipstick, except when I'm playing with darker shades, but last night was all about a bold red lip. My favourite red shade at the minute is MAC's Satin M.A.C Red! I am also partial to a winged eye most of the time now that I have discovered Soap & Glory's Supercat liquid eyeliner pen. It is so incredibly easy to apply, I would highly recommend!

I like to keep my hair fairly simple when I am off out, so last night just went for no fuss, soft waves like so...


My outfit for the night was something I was incredibly excited to wear! I LOVE monochrome, so I instantly fell in love with this princess A-line scuba skirt from ASOS. It was a pretty little bargain as well for £35! I finished it off with just a plain ivory cami and 20s style sequined clutch bag both from New Look, GORGEEEEOUS strappy sandals from Kurt Geiger (and all of my jewelry that you probably can't even see was from Accessorize!)


My beautiful other half scrubs up well too, whaddaya think??

So gladrags on, and a thousand selfies later, we were on our way! Our destination of choice was The Pipe and Glass Inn which is an adorable little pub slash restaurant in the nearby village of South Dalton. And it's only got a bloomin' Michelin Star hasn't it?!
I've only had one other fine dining  experience on our engagement night, so I was super excited for this!

We drove for a couple of miles through pretty villages in the pitch black and pulled up outside this adorable quaint looking pub...


It even had these cute little pumpkins outside, perfect for Halloween!


 I won't massively bore you with every little detail about our meal...spoiler...IT WAS FANTASTIC...but I'll just share my photos with you! Every course I had was amazing, and I made a point of trying out things that I've never had before cos I might never have the opportunity again! 


 For starter I had a delish watercress and blue cheese soup with some posh mini cheddars and crusty bread, and then for my main course I chose the guinea fowl (which I was pleased to find out WAS NOT guinea pig!), which came with a gorgeous risotto and butternut squash pureĆ©. Everyone else went for the roast beef which looked insane but I was feeling a lot more adventurous than them apparently. And to top it all off I was the only one to order dessert, because, well why not?! I went for the deliciously autumnal chocolate honeycomb and cinder toffee ice cream which was well worth it! 

The only downside to the whole night was that I was feeling cruddy, so I'll definitely have to pay another visit the The Pipe and Glass but I thoroughly enjoyed all of my dinner and the lovely company of course! The last bits I'll share with you are just a couple of interior shots that I think are so lovely, especially the coal fire!


Definitely the best date night I've had in a while, and if you're ever in the Beverley area I'd definitely pay The Pipe and Glass Inn a visit!

As for me now, I have a hot date with a Beechams and my bed, but let me know about any fab date nights you've had recently!

Always, Alice x

  1. Aw Alice you look lovely! I hope you feel better soon though :) this looks like a very cute restaurant, a fire place is always a nice touch! I enjoyed a night in with my flatmates last week with Titanic and a box of roses, hardly a date night but perfect nevertheless!
